There are some possibilities due to the above phenomena. Let's discuss about it:
1) If the POWER light is flashing green, then your printer is now warming up or performing maintenance procedure (replacing cartridge/tank) or cleaning print head, just wait a few seconds till the light stop flash. Also if the last page of a print job not done, this POWER light flashing green.
2) If the CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, it mean your cartridge need to be install (especially the 1st time turn on printer) or cartridge being replaced, just install the cartridge and press RESUME to continue.
3) If both POWER light is flashing green and CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, then your printer may facing a very serious error and maybe need a replacement.

Hope these help.

    Red on print is coming out pink


    1. Lift the printer access door, then remove the ink cartridges from the printhead.
    2. Verify that the label on the ink cartridges is intact, and the cartridges are not damaged.
    3. Verify that only KODAK branded ink cartridges are installed.
    4. Insert the ink cartridges into the printhead, then press down firmly until you hear them click into position.
    5. Close the printer access door, then make the same print.
    If issue still continues:
    1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper tray.
    2. Press and hold Cancel + Copy/Resume simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes green. The On/Off light continues to flash during the cleaning procedure.
    3. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press and hold Scan + Copy/Resume simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes, then wait for the demo sheet to print.
    If issue still continues:

    The printer flashes orange light five times, and green once


    Probably your waste ink counter. Should be cleaned or replaced before resetting but usually you can get away with resetting once.
    1. Start with 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 printhead has finished moving.
    6. Select functions below with RESUME, execute with POWER

    0 presses - green light - Test Print (exit service for i960)
    1 press - orange light - EEPROM info print
    2 presses - green light - EEPROM initialise
    3 presses - orange light - reset waste ink counter.

    This also applies to the i550, i560, i950, i960

    When i turn my printer on the light flashes green once and then orange 5 times. cannot get past this stage - any ideas?


    Here are all the flashing explanations:

    Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error

    Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

    Three flashes: Paper jam

    If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

    See Paper Jams

    Four flashes: Empty ink tank

    If you press the RESUME/CANCEL button, it will continue printing with an empty ink tank. After printing is finished, replace the ink tank immediately. If you continue printing with an empty ink tank, it may cause damage to your printer.

    Refer to your Quick Start Guide for instructions on how to replace an ink tank.

    Five flashes: No print head installed/Defective print head

    Install the print head. Also, ensure that the protective tape has been removed.

    If reinstalling the print head does not solve the problem, replace it with a new one. Contact the Customer Care Center.

    Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full

    The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact the Customer Care Center.

    Not printing from one computer


    If the CHARGE/ERROR light is remain on orange with beep 1 times, it mean the paper is not properly set in the feed slot, just remove the paper and reload it properly.
    If the POWER light is flashing green, that mean your print job is not finish yet.
