Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000R InkJet Printer
When you press the resume button it could not process..the orange light is continue blinking..when you turn off the printer the same problem will resumed
I have the Canon Pixma iP4000R printer. I had an error code of a600 and my power light was blinking/flashing green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange (12 oranges).
I tried the “waste ink counter reset reset” procedure: Power on while holding the stop/reset button and pushing the service button twice, then pushing the stop/rest button 4 times to clear the error, but that didn’t work.
My ink cartridge carrier wasn't moving. I thought I had a paper jam.
I looked at a few blogs about my error on other Canon Pixma models and they kept talking about “sponges”.
The following is what I discovered that cleared my error and now my printer is back to printing!
The “sponges” are 2 hard pieces of absorbing plastic or something of the like. I was looking for a softer material like long thin gray foam strip material in my printer. The 2 "sponges" on my Pixma iP4000R were next to each other-one was rectangular and one was square-like. Originally they were white but the ink made them black/navy.
The "sponges" are located on the right under where the ink cartridge carrier "rests".
I didn't see the sponges at first, as there was a white “L” shaped plastic piece that had a spring attached to it. The “L” shaped piece was moved forward out of its place. I used my pen tip and pushed that piece back and found that the rectangular "sponge" had popped out of its place.
I used a pen tip popped both “sponges” out and rinsed them with water and voila they were once again white. I think the rectangular one had so much ink on it it popped itself out of place.
My error is gone and I can print again!
