    I have a yellow light on my Dell 1100 also. In the manual it is referred to as an "orange" light. The manual suggests that it means your toner is low but I just changed my cartridge also. The next thing I'm going to do is clean the printer. I'm sure that it could use it. This printer is several years old but I just bought a new cartridge which will last me at least another year. I want to keep it alive at least that long. I'll let you know if this works.

    someone used my printer when i was gone and now the orange light is on. There is a fuse in the cartridge, so that is not the problem. It does print, but the light is on.

This will solve the orange light staying on problem.WELL i figured it out.
I noticed when i bought the new Cartridge it had a CLEAR GLASS FUSE at the front
then i noticed my old cartridge did not have one , maybe it fell out when i remove the cartridge
so i did not install the fuse in the new one because i thought i did not need one ( ps i bought an aftermarket cartridge Samsung ML-2010D3 , slight modification ,i had to change the top plate , very easy)

INSTALL THE FUSE IN THE NEW CARTRIDGE ******PLEASE*******

I have a PIXMA iP4300 and just want to use it for black and white document printing. My 'M' and 'C' color cartridges ran out a while ago and I disposed of them but didn't replace them...


Hello,
Most of the Canon printers form the PIXMA iP series block printing when one of the cartridges is empty. You have some options: 1) change the cartridges (with original or compatible) 2) buy a chip resetter and reset the empty cartridges chip so they can cheat the printer that they are full. This way you will clog the nozzles of your print head and the printer will become useless and won't print.
That's why I suggest you to but even cheap compatible cartridges and replace them.
Hope this helps. Alex

Blinking/flashing lights(orange & green) & won;t pring. Have rebooted computer and unpluged printer. still won't print.


that is because ur head of ur printing cartridge is damaged.

remove ur cartridges black as well as color
n install only black cartridge n check d blinking of lights on ur printer if it doesn't blinks it's mean ur black cartridge is OK but ur blinking of light on ur printer is same it's mean ur head of black cartridge is damaged
after this process remove the black one cartridge and install the color one cartridge n check d blinking of lights on ur printer if it doesn't blinks it's mean ur color cartridge is OK but ur blinking of light on ur printer is same it's mean ur head of color cartridge is damaged
now take a dry cotton cloth n gently clean ur cartridges head install both cartridges on ur printer n check ur blinking light on ur printer that will work only if u r too lucky other wise u have to purchase a one cartridge.

The orange light is lit up on the printer. What does this mean?


There is a problem with the printer. Press resume button again and see if the light orange light goes off. If not then switch off the computer wait for sometime and start again. If it still persists read the error code.

My orange light next to the yellow dot blinking and the printer will not print


When the orange light is solid it means the cartridge is low and you can still print. But when the orange light is flashing it means the cartridge is empty and the printer stops printing. To continue printing you will need to replace the yellow toner cartridge. The part numbers are Q3972 regular yield or Q3962A high yield.

My Canon pixma ip 4000 won´t print. The light at the turn on button blinks five times orange and then comes one green blink. I have tried to clean the print head but that didn´t change anything....


this indicates a the print head is not installed correctly or is faulty.

if the green and orange is alternating 5 times then it is caused by the sheet feeder.
