Make sure that the cartidge is properly seated.
Then alighn the cartidge with the software that came with the printer and do a test page.
The light blinking means either the wrong cartridge or that it's not seated properly.

How can I change an ink cartridge..My pixma mp500 is given me an error 6500 and I think it will fix it if I change the ink cartridge but it does not me allow it to do it. thanks


To be sure the error 6500 is correct, the orange light should flash 20 times then briefly stop and then flash a further 20 times and this will repeat all the time. if this the case then the logic board pcb will need to be changed as it has an internal bus fault.

Srri.

My Canon iX4000 has changed its colours during printing, with Red noticeably being printed as green. I have a Canon 5PGBK & Calidad 922 Cyan, Magenta & Yellow Cartridges. Do you think the...


Welcome to Fixya
If this happened recently then try to reset the printer to factory state. Please see procedure below:
1.Connect the Canon PIXMA iX4000 printer to the power cord. ( note : If the automatic power-on function is enabled in the printer, the printer enters the service mode for the first time, but it will never enter the service mode if the printer is turned off by the Power button. This is because the printer remains to be turned on internally if the power is turned off by the Power button. To prevent this, disconnection of the power cord is required before starting the printer in the service mode ) .

2.With the Canon PIXMA iX4000 printer powered off, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the Power button. (note : Don't release the buttons. The Power LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

3.While holding the Power button, release Resume/Cancel button. (Don't release the Power button.)

4.While holding the Power button, press Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons.

5.When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button 4 times to reset waste ink counter in the Canon Pixma iX4000. (note : If the Power LED does not light in green the printer does not enter the service mode, disconnect the power cord and plug it again. Then start from step 1 to start the printer in the service mode again).

6.At the end of the service mode, press the Power button. The paper lifting plate of the sheet feed unit will be raised.
Note :

Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.
Other specified number of time(s) according to the function listed in the table below.

Time(s) LED indication Function Remarks
0 times Green (Power) Power off
1 time Orange (Alarm) Service test print
2 times Green (Power) EEPROM information print
3 times Orange (Alarm) EEPROM initialization
4 times Green (Power) Waste ink counter resetting
5 times Orange (Alarm) Destination settings
6 times Green (Power) Print head deep cleaning (Cleaning of both black and color)

Thank you for using Fixya!

I have a Canon iX4000 color printer which is now showing a Error 5C00\r\nplease help


Your 'waste ink tank' is supposedly getting full.
Note that it may actually be getting full, if it is, and you keep printing, it can get messy. very very messy. ;>
I'd use a piece of folded newspaper about the size of the printer underneath the printer just to be safe. If you do this waste tank counter reset a few times, you WILL leak ink.

Power off the printer. Hold down Resume button, keep holding.
Hold down power button, wait for beep, release resume button while still holding power button down.
Press Resume twice, and release all buttons. Wait for indicator light to settle (stop changing). Press resume either 3 or 4 times, the indicator light will turn orange when you have pressed it enough times. Do not hold, just press.
When the light is orange, press power.

If you still get the error, you may have enough ink to actually physically block a sensor in the tank. When that happens, not only are you close to ink stains, you have to disassemble the printer and clean the pads and 'tank' out. This is even messier than an ink leak. ;>
