SOURCE: 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

Reset. Orange light blinks several times. Then Green. Then orange several times, then... on and on. Cannot reset. All ink cartridges have ink.


count the number of orange flashes in between the green light. two flashes = out of paper, 3=paper jam, 4=empty ink tank, 6=print head not installed, 7=print head defective, 8=waste ink tank is almost full

    When I switch on my i550, The green light comes on , immediately changes to orange which flashes 8 times, reurns to green, flashes orange again. This process repeats ad nauseambut the thing will not print


    8 times says the ink absorber is almost full and should print if you press the resume button. If it's too full it won't print until the absorber is changed and the counter reset thru the service mode.

    My printer flash green then oranfe and again and


    5 times says the feed roller is not turning properly, sometimes the gears break and other times something falls in the back and stops the roller from turning. It's a different error if the orange flashes 5 times, or if it flashes orange and green 5 times.
