Sound like residue from the protective tape that was on the cartridge. Take the cartridge out and clean the copper contacts with a Q-Tip dipped in alcohol. VERY lite-ly... I have seen a lite glaze from the tape stopping proper contact if the were on the store shelf very long....
Please rate this solution if it helps.... Thank You...

* RED Ink Light Flashes - One or more cartridges are low on ink. Check the message that appears on your screen to determine which cartridge is low, or follow the instructions in " Checking the Ink Supply". Make sure you have a replacement cartridge.

* RED Ink and RED paper lights flash alternately- The CD/DVD tray guide was left open when you turned on the printer or when printing on paper. Just simply close it/

I was printing several pages & it just stopped working. the ink button & on button flash. Changed the ink cartridges but still get the same blinking with no printing. Turned both the computer...


Press the Ink Cartridge Replacement button and check the flash pattern of the control panel lights:
ERROR and POWER lights flash at the same speed = replace black cartridge
ERROR light flashes twice as fast as the POWER light = replace color cartridge

Canon i250, black text won't print, but ok with nozzle check


Canon i250. Instructions on this website solved the problem of flashing green and orange lights, but now the black won't print. Changed ink cartridges, but still no print. Did a diagnostic nozzle check, and the black DID print. What do I do now?

Power light and red light keep flashing alternatively


If both lights are flashing alternately, it means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink ("protection") counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utilit to reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation.

However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back and I will provide further help.

Printer will not print


This worked perfectly for my printer:

Waste Ink Counter Reset

Power off printer and covers closed
Hold down the Resume button then press and hold POWER, the Green Indicator will light. While holding down POWER , release RESUME
Double click (2 clicks) RESUME then release BOTH POWER and RESUME and wait still the printer stops blinking.
When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be ORANGE.
Press Power to set data

I got the solution from the Internet at the following link:

Hope this helps.

Brand new Printer lights flashing


You should install driver first, then connect printer when prompted, then install inks, as it needs the driver to tell it there are full inks fitted, refer to the manual.
