    Hiya Scott:
    Thank you for replying. I'm using Vista.
    I unplugged USB Cable at both ends, and restarted PC. Then turned off PC and plugged in USB Cable. Restarted PC. Turned on Printer. Unfortunately, alternate flashing of Green and Orange lights continue. No joy I'm afraid.

What operating system you have?
If your printer is a USB printer then do the following: First of all please remove the USB Cable from your PC completely. Restart your PC without connecting USB cable back to your PC. Now connect the USB Cable into the USB Jack from both ends and start your PC. Your PC will automatically accept this USB Hardware driver. After doing above steps please reboot your PC finally and Let me know the result, so I can further invastigate the problem.

    Please hold the Start Button of printer for 1 min, it will resume the services.


    Also check out if any paper jam or cover open up (make it firmly closed)

Waste inki absober is full. The indicator orange


You can remove the top of the printer to remove and clean the pad or reset the printer and continue without cleaning.

These are the instructions which worked for me on my Canon pixma ip470 and has work on many other Canon models:

1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the
selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

6) Power off then back on and test.

Alignment of printhead on Canon Pixma iP4600


This is simply a case of the ink tanks not being pressed in hard enough. They do click in, as the manual instructs but, unless they are fully pressed in top and bottom, this problem occurs. It's a shame that the Canon manuals and even the support centre do not mention this simple solution.
