Unplug the chord of your printer for 30 minutes and plug the chord once again this will reset the printer and your problem will be solved ...........if you still have problem then you need to check the fuse in printer ..........

Flashing green orange lights

The Canon service info is:
B200/P10 - Orange and green light blinking 10 times Description: A service error has occurred. Resolution: 1. Turn off the printer. 2. Disconnect the power cable. 3. Open the printer cover. 4. Check for any orange protective tape or white polystyrene and remove if necessary. 5. Check that there are no foreign objects in the printer (such as a paper clip) and remove if necessary. 6. Close the cover. 7. Reconnect and turn on. If the above solution has not resolved your error, please contact your nearest Canon authorised service facility using the link at the top of the page.

The error code is usually given for a foreign object present in the print head carriage path, so check at both ends for a crumpled up wedge of paper. If nothing is found, it is most likely that your print head has an over-heating problem and is dying

Reset. Orange light blinks several times. Then Green. Then orange several times, then... on and on. Cannot reset. All ink cartridges have ink.

count the number of orange flashes in between the green light. two flashes = out of paper, 3=paper jam, 4=empty ink tank, 6=print head not installed, 7=print head defective, 8=waste ink tank is almost full

I have a Canon Bubble Jet i850. It is approximately 7 years old with no problems until now. I am getting 7 orange flashes, which according to the manual indicates possible defective printer head. I removed...

The problem does indeed seem to be a print head fault. Remove it and take it to your local printer re-inking firm. Get them to do a thorough clean of the print head (they have the equipment that us mere mortals don't) and test it (should cost you nothing or very little). If it works, great! If not then get a new printer. The cost of replacing the print head would be the same or more than replacing the entire unit.

Canon S520 printer stopped printing has 7 orange lights before the green light on printer has an error code

Hi ...

light flashing 7 times means that there is an issue with printer head. Try and perform the below steps to reset the printer head whcih might resolve the problem. If this doen not, I would suggest you get your printer checked by a technician.

Reseat the print head
  1. Confirm that the printer is powered on.

  2. Check that the printer is powered on, and open the front cover. Wait until the print head moves to the center.

  3. Hold and slowly move the print head lock lever up and down several times.


  4. Lower the print head lock lever to secure the print head.


    Note: Holding the print head may cause it to not be seated properly. Perform this step using only the print head lock lever.

  5. Close the front cover.
Don't forget to vote if this helps ... Cheers :)

Cannon S330 printer

You guess seems to be right. The user manual says that 7 orange flashes is "Defective print head Contact a Canon service representative". So, the is not much more we will be able to suggest you on, unless there is a Canon technical rep who is also an Expert here!

Sometimes, all is not lost, they may have a special (undocumented) procedure they will ask you to try. Then, if it turns out that your printer is really dead, you may still be able to resell the ink in the classified ads or on eBay. Good luck!
