Canon i350 printer won't print; alternates flashing green/orange.

Sounds like the printer head is clogged or damaged.

I believe that sequence stands for (error sending data to print head). Not sure if it can be repaired or not, its hit or miss with the canon printers.

The ip series, the heads were removable and the whole section could be replaced. Give canon a call and see if thats possible with the i350 series. Worse case you will have to replace the whole printer.

Hope this helps.

The printer flashes orange light five times, and green once

Probably your waste ink counter. Should be cleaned or replaced before resetting but usually you can get away with resetting once.
1. Start with printer OFF
2. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
3. Release RESUME
4. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
5. let green light blink until printhead has finished moving.
6. Select functions below with RESUME, execute with POWER

0 presses - green light - Test Print (exit service for i960)
1 press - orange light - EEPROM info print
2 presses - green light - EEPROM initialise
3 presses - orange light - reset waste ink counter.

This also applies to the i550, i560, i950, i960

6 orange and 1 green flashing light on S400 canon bubblejet

Friend your printer has reached to its printing limit. Its printer has a maximum of printing point it is registered in the printer memory. When it reach to its limit it will stop. To solve this problem you need to use CSS Utility Software so that you can make the printer reset then you can print again. You can download for just type CSSutility software in google or yahoo. then download.
