    I also have the same problem started today 5 orange flashes and one green as soon as powered up. Similarly I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, changing ink jet cartridges ........... but no success. It has been a good printer for 3 years or so and I would welcome any suggestions to get it operational again. Thanks

    Same here! ....five orange then green.... tried the reset routine... Went to a Canon service location and asked questions... their response was, often it is more economical to buy a new printer if you don't have a supply of ink. I'm disappointed... its been a good printer.

This means that the print head is shot. It is $60.00 + freight. I bought a new Canon MP210 all in one printer for $ 50.00 from Walmart. I really liked my old one.

Hi, The orange light in my canon ip1600 printer is blinking 5 times and green light once alternatively. Please give me a solution to fix it. What is the reason behind this problem? Thanks.


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.

My Canon pixma ip 4000 won´t print. The light at the turn on button blinks five times orange and then comes one green blink. I have tried to clean the print head but that didn´t change anything....


this indicates a the print head is not installed correctly or is faulty.

if the green and orange is alternating 5 times then it is caused by the sheet feeder.

Blinking orange 5 times and 1 green


Try this:
Most of the time when a printer used for a certain period the ink would dry out and caused an error message. What you do is to replace with a new inks pad inside the printer and reset that error message. Once it is done, your printer will work again!

For Printer Model: Canon S9000, S300, S400, i550, i560, i850, i860, i865, i9100, i9950, PIXMA iP3000:

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.
