SOURCE: The printer flashes orange light five times, and green once

Probably your waste ink counter. Should be cleaned or replaced before resetting but usually you can get away with resetting once.
1. Start with printer OFF
2. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
3. Release RESUME
4. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
5. let green light blink until printhead has finished moving.
6. Select functions below with RESUME, execute with POWER

0 presses - green light - Test Print (exit service for i960)
1 press - orange light - EEPROM info print
2 presses - green light - EEPROM initialise
3 presses - orange light - reset waste ink counter.

This also applies to the i550, i560, i950, i960

12 times is listed an AP position error:

Carefully slide and top covers off to reveal the print head. There is a device that slides back n forth and acts like a window cleaner squeegie on the printhead. This mechanism is probably stuck at its full extention rather than being back at home base. Every time you turn it on and off you should see it try to move but it will seem to be stuck. Give it a little assistance and that should release it. It can get glued up with drying ink. The mechanism that drives the sliding squeegee relies on a spring for it to return and the spring isn't strong, so the whole thing jams up...

which is probably what the code means - jammed mechanism.

Green orange then red flashing 3 times light


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

The light first flashed orange causing printer to pause printing. After restarting the machine and printer several times, it is constantly flashing green. printer did not initiALISE.


The light flashing orange or green could mean a couple of things. First could mean that the paper size that you are using is not the same that you have configured on the printer or the paper size that you have selected on your software is not the same as the one configured in the printer. Also it could be a message of the toner low. You can try resetting he printer to factory defaults. Turn Printer off and open the front cover. Then Press and hold the Button with the Triangle and the Cancel Button the one with the X and turn the printer back on. You will have to keep the buttons pressed until the exclamation light comes up solid then release the two buttons and close the cover. That should reset the printer to factory Defaults.

My printer flash green then oranfe and again and


5 times says the feed roller is not turning properly, sometimes the gears break and other times something falls in the back and stops the roller from turning. It's a different error if the orange flashes 5 times, or if it flashes orange and green 5 times.

Canon ip1300. Three orange flashes, one green.


Hi emdos,
Did you mean blinking three times in Orange?. Well, the problem is paper jam error occurs in your printer. First, check if any broken paper inside printer. If it so, remove broken paper. If problem still persist, it seems that drive assy broken or paper feed sensor fault. Find more useful article about this below.

Orange lights (3)


Three orange flashes between green indicates a paper jam on this model. Look closely in the paper feed area and the paper exit area for any torn scraps of paper. Also open the top and check in the platen area (where the print head moves back and forth). If you don't see anything, it's possible that a sensor has broken or gone bad.
