Dear palia1234,
Blinking in orange 5 times indicates that the printhead error occurs. You need to replace the printhead with a new one. But be careful before replacing the printhead, check your printhead if any smoke smell or indication of short circuitry present. Replacing the printhead in this case will harm new printhead. You'd better to take your printer to the nearest service center.

Regards,

Error: print head is installed not correctly & yellow light is blinking 5 times(Error E5). Normal print head is installed from other same printer but the error is still on. How to reset it?


This cannot be reset, tricked, or buffaloed .

The print heads have a built in device that makes sure you cannot swap out the part from another printer and install it other than he printer it originally it was installed in.

Errr u052 cannot print .


A lot of Canon printer's users come across with the error message, "U052 This type of print head is incorrect." It is a very common error on Canon printers and is fairly easy to troubleshoot.

There are two different scenarios related to U052 kind of error message.One is where the print head is not installed at all and then it is giving the 'U052 This type of print head is incorrect' error message.

And, the second scenario is where the print head is installed nut it is not functioning properly or probably not working at all. The below section will show step by step troubleshooting of both the scenarios.

What does the third light from the left indicate? I have no manual and can't print one to find out. The blinking just started and now printer will not print at all in any mode.


From the left - Light 1 is ink cartridge, (color indicates which ink) Light 2 is Print head, light 3 is configuration, 4 is cancel, 5 is resume , 6 is power.
Probably it's out of yellow ink.

The following printhead(s) has a problem Black/Yellow[K/Y].


Simple solution is:

Replace the Black and Yellow Print Catridges. The print heads are mounted to the bottom of the catridges and these, depending on whther they're from HP or not. can have a hard time conducting electricity properly, and in turn.. spitting ink out properly.


Also happens often with aftermarket Catridges because HP puts chips on the catridge. be sure to put an HP catridge. Sometimes you get what you pay for :)
