how to open canon ip1900 coverings

Remove the paper and cartridges.

With the printer facing you, open the cover and remove the 2 screws you can see extreme left and right. These are the only screws needed to remove the covers.

Now turn the printer upside down and look for 2 arrows on the left and right side of the printer. Stil a screwdriver up where they point to to undo the catches. Now shove the two side panels backwards from the printer.

To release the remaining top panel and lid, pull it off its plastic catches.

Canon iP1800-alternating flashing lights. 1 long green, 3 short orange. How do i troubleshoot this? It is a ''Service Error 6000''. Which translates to a paper jam, however, there is no paper in the printer. Help?

1- Please open the cover and inspect the inside of the printer carefully. There might be a little piece of paper or a tiny object jammed in there and is causing this error message. Also get some canned air and clean the inside of the printer. 2- Restart the printer.
