Re: flashing lights

Count the number of flashes and look the error up in your owners manual.

One cartridge has flashing red light and printer has error readout.

I have an iP4200. If an ink cartridge is flashing it means it is empty and needs replacing. How old's your printer?

The resume button was continually flashing and would not print. After turning on and off several times, checking ink and making sure the lid on printer was down, the flashing stopped but still won't print,...

On that machine the resume button flashes a certain number of times and then the green power light flashes, you need to count the flashes inbetween the green flashes to know what the problem is. That count tells a repair shop what is wrong.

I have a pixma ip4200 canon printer

Theres a large lid directly below where the paper goes in and above where it comes out. You can see that is a different scetion from the rest of the printer. If you still cant find it, its where the pixma ip4200 logo is and just above the bigger canon logo on the front. Simply open it and wait until the cartridges move along into view, the one(s) that need changing will flash, push in the small tab on the cartridge and lift out. Hope this helps.

Error also refers to the EEPROM for the printhead. I would reset the EEPROM and see if that helps.

Printer servcie manual here and it will show you how to do it:

When you plug your printer into the computer, what does the computer say?

Count how many flashes you are getting. Look in your owners manual to see what it says for that number of flashes.
