    Check out the contact of the Toner and clear them with cotton and also the nozzle of Toner.

    Then place them gently and firmly in Carriage. Move the carriage by hand to and fro, let me know the result if it is moving smoothly or not. Check out with a new toner also.

Here's the "S9000 Waste Ink Tank Reset", off the first web-site link, listed below. I hope it helps. RESET PROCEDURE:
#1 Turn off printer.
#2 Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
#3 Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
#4 Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
#5 Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
#6 When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
#7 Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more. #8 Your printer should respond as normal..

mostly this option of reset will work for you but if it does not reset then it is necessary for you to replace the head and the printer will work properly after that.
you will get the replacement head between $70 to $100.at the local service center near to your place.

There are three solutions for blinking problem of your printer:
1) Reset the printer
2)The Print Head may need replacing- S9000
3) The S9000 may require repair

Since, you tried the 1st option, try the other options.

    Replacing the print head


    The print head may need replacing if, after all print head and ink tank troubleshooting has been performed:





    • The nozzle test appears broken or to have horizontal white streaks.

    • One or more of the colors is missing from the Nozzle Test.

    • The colors are incorrect on the Nozzle Test.

    • A print head error is indicated on the unit.

    • The printer powers off when the print head is installed.

    If your printer is still under warranty :

7 blinks is waste ink tank error.

Here is the reset procedure:

Manual reset for Canon i550, i560, i850, i950, i960 (May work with i860, i865) Posting by K3Y in 2:03 AM This manual for all canon I series from I560 above and Pixma series from IP3000 series seems use the same reset procedures like canon s9000
the same procedures works for i560/s400/i9100/i9950/s300/i850/ and Pixima From Ip3000 above
Canon i550, i560, i850, i950, i960 (May work with i860, i865)
1. Start with the printer OFF
2. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
3. release RESUME
4. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
5. Let green light blink until printer is done moving print head.
6. Select functions below with RESUME press POWER to execute:

Number of presses - light color - function :
0 presses - green - Test print (or exit service mode on i960)
1 press - orange - EEPROM info print (plus grid nozzle diagnostic on i960)
2 presses - green - EEPROM initialize
3 presses - orange - Reset waste ink counter

From

Printer Solver

Try first three presses to reset ink counter, if it does not work do 1 press to reset EEPROM , and 2 press to reinitioalize EEPROM.

Unplug the power chord for 1 hour and after 1 hour plug the power supply to printer .This is caused due to power failure also check the fuse in printer .

This is basic troubleshooting technique for this kind of problem

    Canon Waste Tank Cleaning
    On Canon printers, the waste tank is not really a 'tank' but rather a layering of felt type substance. These layered pads are located inside the printer, usually on the right hand side. If you are not mechanically inclined, we recommend you get help from someone that is, as you will need to remove some or all of the outer shell of your printer to access these pads. You can get replacement pads through Canon, or various other sites .. just Google for them. We have successfully cleaned these pads with a mixture of water and methyl hydrate (50/50). We left them soak in a GLASS dish for a few hours and then gently squeezed (do not twist them like a towel) out the excess water and left them on paper toweling to dry overnight. This can be messy procedure, so use rubber gloves or just order new pads... your choice. Ensure you put the pads back in the order you removed them.
    Also when checking for problems with Canon printers and ink issues, depending on your model, remove the ink cart and clean the contacts on the cart and the printer connections ... a clean pencil (not a ink erasure) eraser works well for this .. place paper toweling under the printer contacts to catch the eraser dust when cleaning the contacts. Do not scratch the contacts with the metal part of the pencil that hold the eraser attached.

    If you still face the problem then you will have to get it repaired.There are no other home remedies.

Canon ip1600 showing message that waste ink absorber is almost full and stops the printing process. How to correct?


First you need to remove that inpad carefully from under the cassettes. Press power on so cartridges move out. Pull out ppower cord to prevent it going back to base. Using tweezers, remove the pad. noting how it is positioned. You can use a few drops of bleach and water to soak the pad in to remove the ink. Then pat it dry between two rags and use a hair dryer to fully dry it. Take care not to burn it.

Then, replace it. Repower the machine.

Now follow this sequence to reset the counter.

Blinking orange 5 times and 1 green


Try this:
Most of the time when a printer used for a certain period the ink would dry out and caused an error message. What you do is to replace with a new inks pad inside the printer and reset that error message. Once it is done, your printer will work again!

I have similar problem. I found this solution that may help you. My problem insists tho.

>>> 5 flashes indicates a faulty printhead or possibly a problem with the p/head contacts. Try removing the head which is easier if you take the cartridges out first(no tools required) and re-seat it having checked the contacts for dirt.

If that doesn't work it may be that the waste ink tank is full. Try this ...
