That is the code for a bad printhead (the part that your cartridges go into. It operator replaceable and I beleive it comes with instructions. If not, they are listed on Canon's site. You should be able to get it at any office supply store. I beleive the number is BC-24. That should do it Ed

SOURCE: Canon S300 printer. 7 orange blinks, 1 green. I

According to the manual found here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=330&modelid=6609

7 orange lights represents a bad print head, and the printer will need serviced or replacement. Since printers are so cheap lately, I would just go shopping. Hope this helps! Thanks!

LED light keeps blinking


That is a service error code, but you need to count how many blinks between the longer green blink, and that tells the error code...

Blinking orange 5 times and 1 green


Try this:
Most of the time when a printer used for a certain period the ink would dry out and caused an error message. What you do is to replace with a new inks pad inside the printer and reset that error message. Once it is done, your printer will work again!

1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.

Canon i860 - Service Error 5100 I have tried the reset procedure several times (Resume, then power and hold power, resume 2x, release power) but the light never stops blinking to go on. Any...


Start with the printer OFF

1. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
2. release RESUME (while still holding down the POWER)
3. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
4. The green light will blink and the printer will make some noise. Wait until this is finished, you are now in the printer's diagnostic mode.

To select one of the functions below, use the RESUME button and then press POWER to execute:

# of RESUME Presses - Light Color - Function

0 - green - Power Off
1 - orange - Service Test Print: Extended nozzle check pattern
2 - green - EEPROM information print
3 - orange - EEPROM initialize
4 - green - reset waste ink counter (For the Canon waste tank full error)

Remember... ATTEMPT THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

hi, the blinking is caused by a fault in the printer, means it needs to be serviced, its usually more expensive for them to fix it than buying a new one, but you can get there number off the canon website.

Hi taximom, Is the light alternating back and forth between green and orange (GR OR GR OR GR OR GR)? Or is there a pattern like (GR OR OR OR GR OR OR OR GR) or (GR OR OR OR OR OR OR OR OR GR OR OR OR OR OR OR OR OR GR) If it the first case (alternate back and forth) then I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it needs service. (and it's probably not worth fixing) If there is a pattern to the blinking let me know exactly how many times it goes orange and I can tell you what to do from there. The Dude
