That happens sometime especially if you followed generic instructions to reset the ink counter. In cannon it tends to still give warnings and acts up until a new serial number has been registered from the cartridge. Following the same steps should make your printer respond- those codes were intended for manufactures for the most- The printer companies don't want you restating the ink counter or waste counter as for when theres a need for that it usually means a user is attempting to defeat the system that keeps track of replacing the ink and ink levels. Just play with it a lil to get it out of that mode- it may be compatible with the method you used and also you will still have a low or no ink warning even after this is done.

Can't say definitely. Might need to contact Canon or pay a technician who has personally experienced the error and repaired it successfully.

First step in this kind of issue is check the data cable is properly socketed.
Second step is perform a copy operation directly from the printer. If this fails your issue is printer or cartridge, so swap out the cartridge and retry. If still no copy - your printer has an electronics fault.
Step three is try a document ( D2) from a different application (App2). If it prints the new document (D2) - your issue is with the original document (D1) or the application (App1) printing from. Try printing a different document (D3) from the original application (App1). If document D3 prints from App1 - the fault is in the document D1, and if document D3 fails to print - the fault is in App1.
