You get this because the cartridge is not detected

When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect a print cartridge.

Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.

1. Unplug the unit and Open the top cover of the printer.

2. Remove the print cartridges.

3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth.
Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.

5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.

6. Close the top cover.

7. Try printing again.

Cannon i865. Operator Error message and blinking orange light (5 blinks). Switching off power does not reset. Also used reset technique from this site, this does not seem to work. Any more ideas?


5 flashes indicates a faulty printhead or possibly a problem with the p/head contacts. Try removing the head which is easier if you take the cartridges out first(no tools required) and re-seat it having checked the contacts for dirt.

If that doesn't work it may be that the waste ink tank is full. Try this ...
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.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Turn on machine and the check printer comes up on screen and the number 5100, also the on/off light and alarm light blink back and forth.


You need to reset your printer to remove this error. But first, may I suggest that you remove first your ink cartridge. Clean the contact surface using a cotton bud moistened with alcohol. After cleaning return back the cartridge.

Follow these steps:
1. Turn off the printer
2. Press and hold down the Stop/Reset button and Power button for 5 seconds.
3. While holding the Power button, release the Stop/Reset button.
4. While still holding the Power button, press the Stop/Reset button twice
5. Release Power button (wait till you get the lights)
6. Press the Stop/Reset button 3 times each having a 3 seconds gap. (check whether you are getting the orange light or not)
7. Press the Power button and enter data.
8. Remove the cartridge. Leave it for 20 seconds
9. Press the Power button and shutdown printer.
10. Return cartridge and start the printer.
11. Set the language and country.

After the first reset procedure and there is still an error, do this 2nd reset.
When the error is displayed on the display panel of the printer, 1. Press and Hold the STOP/RESET button and wait until it self restart.
2. Release the STOP/RESET button so printer will completely restart. After this, your printer will print again.

Please give this solution a 4 thumbs up rating.
Thank you for using Fixya
