Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Printer refuses to work

My pixma is refusing to do anything except flash its light orange and green (the manual says 'call a Canon technican'). I've been printing in black and white for a while with an empty yellow tank. When you open it, the print head holder should move to the centre but it stays put now. Any ideas?

Flashing green orange lights


The Canon service info is:
B200/P10 - Orange and green light blinking 10 times Description: A service error has occurred. Resolution: 1. Turn off the printer. 2. Disconnect the power cable. 3. Open the printer cover. 4. Check for any orange protective tape or white polystyrene and remove if necessary. 5. Check that there are no foreign objects in the printer (such as a paper clip) and remove if necessary. 6. Close the cover. 7. Reconnect and turn on. If the above solution has not resolved your error, please contact your nearest Canon authorised service facility using the link at the top of the page.

The error code is usually given for a foreign object present in the print head carriage path, so check at both ends for a crumpled up wedge of paper. If nothing is found, it is most likely that your print head has an over-heating problem and is dying

According to the product manual, six flashes of orange indicates an Inner Cover Error. The manual says to close the inner cover and then press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

Ip4300 canon pixma


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!
