Fix MX700 – (with an axe)

LIST – Sites that might be useful resolving MX700 problems?
LIST – Not in any particular order – But number one [#1] seems like the most useful.

#2: –

Error U051 on Canon Printers

Solution 1:
Press the triangle button for 5 seconds.

Solution 2:
Reinstall the cartridges; change the cartridges if the error persists.

Solution 3:

ink cartridge are clean and unscratched.

GOOGLE – SEARCH; Fix error U051

#3: – Free Printer Resetter

1) Press and hold the Stop/Reset button
2) Press and hold the power-button (Two seconds)
3) Now (with the power-button still held) – Press the Stop/Reset button twice.

The MX700, should now enter ‘service-mode’.

This procedure works well on my MX700, however the other procedures are not working for my mx700, (ie, Print the ROM page, or entering the “Set Region Mode”) – some experimentation might produce BETTER results, … (all for now).
