Canon imagePROGRAF Hardware Error 03130031 Introduction
When your Canon imagePROGRAF Plotter is stuck with an on-screen hardware error 0313003, you need to call the service center to get assistance to get your Canon large format printer back into working state. In this printer service guide, we will give you some ideas to decode Hardware Error 03130031 and its subcodes of the 4 digits in the end.
Decoding the Error 03130031
Since we have detailed documentation about this error, it will be easier for you to diagnose the error. The hard part is, this error is closely related to the 'print head' and in most cases, you need to replace it to fix the plotter. To diagnose the error in the right way, we need subcode, which is the last four characters of the error code followed by 03130031, for example, '2F51'. The whole error code will look like this, 03130031-2F51.
Now you know how to find the sub error code, But how to understand the meaning of the 4-digit code followed by 03130031?
