Strangely enough 2 years after mine spontaneously stopped working it spontaneously started working again. There is no reasonable explanation for it. Once I was able to turn it on most of the catridges were dry. It may be a built in “punishment” Canon has put in their printers to deter you from holding the paper feed button enough times to default to printing in only black and white. Nonetheless I am over Canon products. Will never buy another again. Completely fed up. The ink cartridges are so insanely expensive and I perhaps get only 10 photos out of them. It may be more economical to return to a fuji film developed film camera than these ridiculous digital camera photos which can only be shared on computers. I’m sorry to say there was no solution to this and I am quite tech savvy. I’ve soldered power jacks on mother boards, upgraded processors in laptops and replaced screens in laptops. I can completely dismantle a laptop and have every screw and part diagrammed, clean it (dust etc), reapply heatsink to the processor and reassemble it in perfect working condition in less than 2 hours and have it benchmarking higher than the standard rating. There is absolutely no reason for Canon to have this push button nonsense vs a standard on off toggle switch like devices had 20 years ago.
