Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer
If the orange light is blinking 5 times then the error is:
[From the service manual]
The print head is not installed , or it is not
properly installed (EEPROM data of the print
head is faulty) [1403 / 1405].
I'm guessing that you've been using this printer and printhead for a while though so it's more likely that the printhead is dead and you need to purchase a new one.
Depending on where you are in the world, getting a new one is pretty simple but costs vary.
In the USA, buy direct from Canon and you'll get it pretty cheap.. Unfortunately elsewhere, like the UK, you have to pay more than the printer is worth to get a new one which is frustrating.
Hope that helps.
