If error light blinks 4 times
will be a hardware error.
Canon mention to be a cart. out of position.... but there are wrong.
On the service station(right side) you will se a metal plate
wich is holding service station. I did find it out of position
and just push it till it cliks on the tabs.
After that repower yor unit and shuld be fine.
just to mention that you don't need to take it can accese it thru front opening lid.
Good luck

Black printing is incomplete. faint, blurry, ghosts, erratic

More than likely your printhead is failing. This is a common problem with the i70/i80, i90/iP90v and i100. The printhead is easy to replace. Open the cover, let the carriage center, powerlift printhead frame lever and lift out printhead. You can test and/or clean the jets in the maintenance tab in the print driver.

Canon i90 gives error 5100

This means that the Movement of the Print Head Holder is blocked. To remedy this carefully check the printer and clear the paper jam or foreign object that is preventing the Print Head Holder from moving. With the power off the Head Holder should be able to be moved gently by hand. Cancel printing from your computer, then turn off the machine, and turn it back on again

My canon i90 printer wont print. it appears to working perfect but the result is a blank paper. i have installed new cartiages & run all maintenance functions.

It sounds like the printhead is plugged, but there is also a firmware upgrade that helps position the printhead for better cleaning, Canon suggests you try deep cleaning 3 times in printer maint. from the properties menu before replacing the printhead. I use a syringe to put a couple drops of water on the cleaning pads on the right to help with cleaning.

I believe that 7 amber flashes refer to a cartridge error. Check that the cartridge is seated correctly.

Canon i860 "printer offline" but light is blinking

Move mouse pointer on to your printer icon in the Printer folder. Does a right click and click on the sixth line of the menu (“Use printer on line”). Then it will change as “Use printer offline”. Make sure the printer is set as default printer.
