Canon ip1800 5 orange flashes then goes green,


The FINE cartridge cannot be

recognized.

Possible causes are as follows:

• The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly.

• The FINE Cartridge may not be compatible with this printer.

Install the appropriate FINE Cartridge. If lines are misaligned or the resulting output
is not satisfactory, carry out the Print Head Alignment.

1- Please open the cover and inspect the inside of the printer carefully. There might be a little piece of paper or a tiny object jammed in there and is causing this error message. Also get some canned air and clean the inside of the printer. 2- Restart the printer.

Canon i850 light is green then flashes orange 7 times then goes green and repeats orange flashing. Printer never gets ready


This is a very bad error. It means that the printhead needs servicing and may need to be repaired. There is no easy fix. Sorry.

1. Press power button while plug in the power cord – green lamp.
2. While hold the power button press resume button twice – orange blink and return to green.
3. Release the power button, Then the PC will recognize new printer install.

5. Run the software and select printer port.
6. Then select Set Destination
7. Click MAIN and PLATEN button to reset waste ink counter to zero.
8. Finally test print by click TEST PATTERN button.
