    Double check that the cartridge is the proper color. Aftermarket tanks can be deceiving. I found that a cyan colored top does not always mean a cyan colored ink. The top was all cyan but in tiny letters is said blk (black.) Sometimes the dumbbutt answer is the correct one.

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!

SOURCE: Canon 1560 error - orange light blinking 5 times

It's mean "Print head not installed/Defective print head".First open cover and remove the ink cartridges.Then open holder and remove the print head.Clean the contacts on printer and print head using piece of cotton and some alcohol.Then put back all again.If the problem persist you need to replace the print head.It's part number now is QY6-0064, because the old QY6-0042 is discontinued.

SOURCE: Canon iP4700 with error 6C10

It's probably a waste absorber issue.

A fix from FixYa Support:

1. Start with printer off
2. Press and hold resume Button (triangle in the circle) and click "Power" button. Green led should be on
3. While holding the Power button, release the Resume Button.
4. Without releasing the Power Button, click "Resume" button for two times and release Both Buttons.
5. Click "Resume" for four times then soon click "Power" button, to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber).
6. Turn off the printer and turn on again

Error: print head is installed not correctly & yellow light is blinking 5 times(Error E5). Normal print head is installed from other same printer but the error is still on. How to reset it?


This cannot be reset, tricked, or buffaloed .

The print heads have a built in device that makes sure you cannot swap out the part from another printer and install it other than he printer it originally it was installed in.
