    The blinking ink light means that the printer is not recognizing the ink cartridge or that there is something wrong with the ink cartridge. If the clearing the spooler trick doesn't work, try a different cartridge. If the light doesn't go off, you have more serious problems.

Lights flashing 7 times


Never heard of 7 flasjhes.

Five flashes = No Print Head Installed. Install or re-install.

Eight flashes = Waste ink absorber* almost full. The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink consumed during Print
Head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that this absorber is nearly full.
Press the R R ESUME/CANCEL button to clear the error so printing can continue for a while.
A longer term RESET IS possible BUT without changing the blotters, you're exposed to ink eventually running out of the printer without warning but... if you still want to continue, here are the reset instructions. Good luck!
1) With the printer powered off, hold down the resume button and press the power button.
2) 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.
Now press the resume button 4 times and then the power button. You've just reset the waste ink counter. Good luck. Just hope it doesn't come back to bite you!

Light kee flashing orange/green and says computer is busy when there is nothing in print queue


FLASHING ORANGE LIGHT ERROR MESSAGES


Try counting the number of orange flashes.
* two flashes means you’re out of paper or the paper is not feeding correctly.
* three flashes means there is a paper Jam or the output tray is closed.
* four flashes means the ink tank is empty
* five flashes means the print head is not installed correctly or not installed or is defective (before buying a new print head always try the cleaning instructions at the end of this post first.)
* six flashes means the inner cover is open or not closed properly.
* seven flashes means you counted wrong.....
* eight flashes means the waste ink absorber is almost full or full.
* nine flashes mean that a digital camera or video that is connected is not compatible with the printer. If a specific amount of time lapses without getting a response from the digital camera or video camcorder this will happen.
* ten flashes means it can not print to both sides of the page
* eleven flashes means the automatic print head alignment failed. (this can be caused by low ink levels, ink tanks not being installed correctly, the print heads being clogged. It can also be caused by the paper output slot being exposed to a strong light source (Press the resume /cancel button and move the printer to a darker location and try to align the print head again.
* check to make sure the lock lever is correctly positioned (down)
If the above does not work, align the print head manually by opening the printer properties dialog box and clicking the maintenance tab and then select the print heal alignment button on the left side, second row down.

MY ALARM ON MY MP210 IS ON AN MY COLOR INK FLASHES WHAT DO I DO


Hi there,
Check the status of each cartride by using the ink lamp.
You have 3 lamps
(A) Alarm lamp
(B) Black ink lamp
(C) Color ink lamp
Make sure that the LED is on standby mode.
a) If the ink lamp lights.
Cause : Ink is low.
Action :You can continue printing for a while, but we recommend you have a new FINE cartridge available.

b) The Alarm Lamp lights and the ink lamp flashes .
* If "E, 1, 3 " is displayed on the LED, ink has run out.
Cause : Ink level cannot be detected.
Action : Ink may have run out.
The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the ink level cannot be correctly detected.
If you want to continue printing without this function, press Stop/Resset buttonfor atleast 5 seconds.
Canon recommends to use new genuine Canon cartridges in order to obtain optimum qualities.

* If E,1, 6" is displayed on the LED,
Cause : Ink has run out.
Action. Rreplace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).
If printing is in progress, you want to continue printing, press the Stop/Reset button for atleast 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.
The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.
Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing. The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.

c) Only the ink lamp flashes
Cause : The function for detecting the remaining in level is disabled.

Hope this helps.
Please rate my response.
Thanks
Have a good day.

Answer Part 1 of 2

An error has occurred in the printer. The number of flashes indicates the type of error, as outlined below. Check the cause and take appropriate action.
Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error
Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
Three flashes: Paper jam
If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
See Paper Jams
Four flashes: Ink tank is not installed properly
Open the Print Head Cover and check whether an ink tank is installed. If an ink tank is installed, push the button of the ink tank, and reinstall the ink tank properly.
Five flashes: No Print Head installed, or Print Head failure
Install a Print Head.
When the error continues, contact a Canon service representative.
Eight flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full
Ink used for cleaning is absorbed in a waste ink absorber placed in the printer. Eight flashes indicate that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so that you can continue printing.
Important
If this error occurs, replacement of the waste ink absorber and maintenance of the printer are required. Canon recommends to contact a Canon service representative as soon as possible. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, it cannot be printed until the Waste ink tank is exchanged.

Nine flashes: A specified period of time has lapsed without receiving a response from a digital camera or digital video camcorder / The digital camera or digital video camcorder connected is not compatible with this printer
