Question about Canon i850 InkJet Photo Printer
I've read the knowledge base at the Canon web site and this tells me I probably have a bad printhead. It powers on with green and then does 7 orange flashes and the printhead will not come to the center when the cover is opened. So I got a new printhead and installed it, and of course there is no change, still same 7 orange flashes. So now I supposed someone is going to tell me,... well I guress it must be the main logic board then,... right. I hope someone else has a better diagnostic way to tell me what is really wrong. I'm getting tired of "Shotgunning" this thing and buying parts that are not broken.
I had the same problm the printer made loud noises, the head did not move and the light flashed orange. At the right most position where the print head rests there is a gear, gunk had the gear jammed I cleaned it with a paper towel lots of black ink came out, it is working fine for a couple of days now.
