These printers are FULL of very sensitive sensors, and chances are that one of them may have a small piece of paper blocking them. If you can get the covers off by finding the "Triangle" arrow markers, you can inspect all these sensors.

Good luck!!!

Orange light flashes if there is any issue with the printer. Please check all the hardware is functioning properly. Check if there is any paper jam. If printer cartridge is installed properly. Printing head is ok.

Hello, the error you describe is for a faulty print head. When the printer is on open the cartridge acces panel, remove all cartridges, remove the printhead and check the printer and printhead golden contacts. If they are dirty clean them with alcohool (make sure, when you clean the printers contacts, the printer cable is pluged off the power). If that dont help you will have to change your printhead (more than 100$).

Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water or a mixture of hot water and isopropyl alcohol
Use it to clean the print head and the electronic contacts on each ink cartridge
Once done, allow to dry and try again
If the error still persists, you have a damaged print head which needs to be replaced with a new one
Hope this help!

What is the reason for orange light flashing 16 times on ip4300?


Hi

No need to worry, 16 times blink simply means that you're out of ink for one or more of the cartridges.
Replace and you should be fine.

I get an error code 6A00 and both lights are flashing on my Canon Pixma ip4300 printer


6A00 means the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks, is stuck or jammed. Look to the right with a flashlight when the printhead is out of the way and look for paper scraps, or anything that doesn't belong.

There's a small white light below the power light that's flashin.
