Read all first!
you didn't say how many blinking
and in what order so ...
First thing you need to do is print an EEPROM information page, step number 2 below.
Once you have an EEPROM print you can reset the waste ink counter, if needed, which is step number 4 below.
Service Mode: This printer has a service mode for service-related settings and for performing test prints. The operator panel buttons are used to enter the desired service mode.
Service Mode Operations
With the printer powered off, hold down the "Resume Button" and press the "Power Button".

While holding down the "Power Button", release the Resume Button" and press the "Resume Button" twice in succession. Now release the "Power Button".

The indicator will blink in green and remain lit in green.

Select one of the following service mode functions by pressing the “Resume Button” the specified number of times.

1 time = Service test print.
2 times = EEPROM information print.
3 times = EEPROM initialization
4 times = Waste ink counter resetting
5 times = Destination settings
6 times = Print head deep cleaning

Then press the “Power Button” one time to perform selected function.

If you press the "Power Button" two times it will take you out of service mode.

This information is listed above in this thread and many times in other Canon threads in this forum. I simplified Canons wording so I could remember the service mode functions easier.

Canon iP1800-alternating flashing lights. 1 long green, 3 short orange. How do i troubleshoot this? It is a ''Service Error 6000''. Which translates to a paper jam, however, there is no paper in the...


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.

    Problem with Code 6000


    Hello, according to another expert at fixya:
    "Error 6000 is a service call error, meaning that the printer needs to be taken into a canon authorized service facility for repair.

    This is a line feed error, with the problem originating from the timing **** disk film or the printer's logic board. "
