Your printer experienced a PrinterPlease try the following to resolved that issue:

1. Resetting the Printer

By resetting the printer's power, the print buffer is cleared and certain sensors are reset. If there is invalid data in the buffer, or sensors are stuck in a particular mode; errors may occur.
Follow these steps to reset the printer:
Turn the printer off with the Power button (if available).

Disconnect the data cable from the printer (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared) .

Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it back in. If troubleshooting a communication issue, reconnect the data cable (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared).

Turn the printer back on.

2. Reseat Print head

*Confirm that the printer is powered on.

*Open the paper output tray and top cover.
Note: Gently open the paper output tray while holding it.

*After confirming that the print head holder has moved to the center, open the inner cover.

*Remove all ink tanks.

*Raise the print head lock lever and remove the print head.

*Re-seat the print head into the print head holder and lower the print head lock lever until a click is heard.

*Insert the appropriate ink tank into the slot at the right end and push down on the PUSH mark on top of the ink tank until a click is heard. Install the other ink tanks in the same manner.

*Close the inner cover and top cover.
Note: Check that each ink tank is installed in the correct position.
If those steps above are exhausted and issue still present printer may require service.

5 flashes amber means the print head is not installed properly (error code 1401) or the EEPROM data of the print head is faulty (error code 1403 or 1405).

Make sure the contacts on the printhead are clean, re-install and try again. If this fails a new printhead may be required. You may be able to re-initialize the EEPROM by entering the service mode.

SOURCE: Canon Pixma MP830 error 5100

As a technician, I have worked on tons of printers. This particular error had stumped me for a while, but I finally found the cause. As others had pointed out before, it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.

SOURCE: when power on printer, green and amber lights

The 6000 error tells you there's a line feed problem, that's the platen roller that the paper is fed over just before printing. You need to inspect with a flashlight and mirror to see that nothing is inside stopping the roller from turning. Sometimes I find toys, screws, gum, candy inside usually from little hands.

SOURCE: Canon Pixma ip3000 flashing amber 6 times

If the 6 flashes are accompanied by an on screen message #5400, this is a "Service Call Error" code.

This code indicates the following;
Internal temperature error [5400]
The solution to this is the following part replacementl
- Logic board ***'y (QM2-1548) *1

*1: Before replacement of the logic board ***'y, check the waste ink amount (by service test print or EEPROM information print). If the waste ink amount is 7% or
more, also replace the bottom case unit (QM2-1205) or the ink absorbers (QC1-4222 / 4223 / 4224 / 4263 / 4264 / 4864 / 4221 / 4257) when replacing the
logic board ***'y.
[See Section 3-3. Adjustment / Settings, (6) Service mode, for details.]

Good luck!!!

I have a Canon pixma pro 9500 mark 11 printer and the ink absorber is Full .. Please please help I need the reset code to reset counter on printer .. I would be so very grateful thanks


Dear
Resetting the waste ink absorber on a Canon printer can resolve some error codes that appear when turning it on. Make sure the printer is turned off. Press and hold the Resume button (triangle inside a circle). Whilst it is held down, hold down the Power button. The green led light should come on. Keep the Power button held down. Release the Resume button and then press it twice. The light should go amber, then green again. Release the Power button. Press the Resume button four times and then press the Power button straight after to confirm the selected action (Reset Counter Absorber). Turn off the printer and then turn it on again

Thanks.

Poor color quality (Canon Pixma pro 9500)


recalibrate the printhead, clean the printhead. In the printer driver you need to select the right paper.

Canon PIXMA Pro 9500. When I try to print a photograph it prints the first 10mm and then ejects the paper, the fault light flashes twice. All the test functions such as the nozzle check, head alignment and...


The photo paper is a little stiffer than bond, you usually just need to clean the feed roller with a damp rag to restore grip. When it ejects like that it usually means the paper is getting in too late due to slippage of the feed roller.
