Alarm orange is flashing

    Alarm light flashing. Error message on screen reads: Check printer. Press Resume Key.
    When I do that the screen reads: Please wait
    then goes back to the original error message.

    Any suggestions?

    Ink tanks are almost full. When cover is opened, I do notice that the print head and inkwell do not reposition in the center -whether that's relevant or not

    I have the same problem

  • Oldman Winte Jan 28, 2009

    Yeah I got the exact same thing no clue what to do.

    I got it from a friend who hadn't used it in a while but it seems unresponsive.
    Just flashes orange warning. Does exactly what the OP said.

    The status monitor keeps trying to collect the printer status but never gets anywhere.

    Same problem. Alarm. it says "put in cartridge." I have put in new cartridges. hit resume, restarted, ? nothing

    The print cartridge doesn't move across the machine when I open it, and it doesn't print black ink. It works in Color copy mode. Talked to Canon and they told me to unplug it, remove the cartridge then wait 2 minutes and put it all back together and plug it in again. After this I was able to print one document and then it stopped printing again. Repeat. Repeat. Any ideas?

Press the round button on the left side of the front console, if there's any information to be had it will be displayed on the display.

Have a canon mp 240 keeps flasing P and 3 and the alarm light and on button are also flashing......what the it wont scan it wont print does any one know what this means


When the Power and Alarm lamps flash alternately, and P and number (error code) are alternately displayed on the LED, an error requiring servicing might have occurred.

Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. Plug the power cord of the machine back in, and then turn on the machine. If the problem is not resolved, contact your Canon service representative.

Canon MP 730 no black


You can get the MP 730 for Data Bazaar for 120.00 with no shipping charges. Hard to pay 160.00 for a repair when a new one is so much less. Just FYI.

Alarm light wont stop flashing


How old is your printer? Maybe a part in your printer has reached its service life and has to be replaced. Please indicate error messages if there are any.
