Question about Canon S900 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Canon S900 printer, 3 orange 1 green flash?????

My Canon S900 printer hasn't been used for a few weeks. When I tried to use it today, the paper will not feed and I get 3 orange flashes and one green flash on the top. No error message. Has anyone got a clue what this error is? I can't find my manual and I can't find it to download on the Canon site (just a selection of software).

Any help gratefully received, thanks.

    Thanks for the suggestion, however I've now identified the problem as a paper feed problem. Despite the fact that paper would travel through the printer correctly, I found a small piece of a paper label lurking in the bowels of the printer. Once this was removed, it works like a dream. Thanks once again, hope this can be of some use to someone else!

The printer has flashing light, it rotates between yellow and green but never turns to solid green light, It does not accept any print job. Please advise


Issue: Power light (or Alarm and Power lights) alternate(s) between orange and green
Solution: The S900 may require repair

Unfortunately, the issue you describe seems to indicate that your product requires repair service.

You could try updating the driver, also available at the link above but the manufacturer's website seems definite that repair is in order.

Sorry for this news.

    Printer is not responding


    This is the error light page from the S520. Not sure about this, but probably the same on the S530. 8 Blinks means replace the ink absorber and reset the counter. I think the ink absorber can be gotten at from the bottom, BUT NOT SURE. Try this at your own risk!

    7.1 Service Mode Operation
    1) With the printer turned off, hold down the RESUME button and press the POWER
    button (the green indicator lights and the desired service function can be selected).
    2) While holding down the POWER button, let go of the RESUME button before pressing
    the RESUME button again twice in succession. Then let go of both RESUME and
    POWER buttons.
    (At each press of the RESUME button, the indicator toggles between orange and
    green.)
    3) During printer initialization, the green indicator blinks. When the green indicator
    stops blinking and remains on, press the RESUME button the specified number of
    times to execute the desired service function, as listed below.
    (At each press of the RESUME button, the indicator toggles between orange and
    green.)
    Press Indicator Function
    0 times Green Power off (Even if there is no print head mounted, the
    carriage will return to the home position and lock.)
    1 time Orange Service/factory test printout (Including ink sensor check)
    2 times Green EEPROM information printout
    3 times Orange EEPROM initialization
    4 times Green Clears the waste-ink counter (S750/S520)
    Waste-ink counter settings (S900/820) (See page 2-34)
    5 times Orange Destination (model) setting
    After reaching this service function, press the RESUME
    button the number of times specified below to set the
    destination.
    Setting
    0 times BJ F900 BJ F890
    1 times S900 S820 BJ F700 BJ F500
    2 times BJ F890PD S750 S520
    3 times S820D
    Note: pressing more than 3 times has no effect.
    6 times Returns to the function select stage (S750/520)
    6~9 times Not used for servicing (S900/820)
    More than Green Returns to the function select stage (S900/820)
    10 times
    4) After selecting a service function, press the POWER button. The green indicator
    lights and the service function will be executed. (After each function is executed, the
    printer returns to the service function select stage.)

    Printer Not Responding, 7 orange flashes


    Don't replace the print head soooo fast...

    Take the print head out first and clean the gold contacts...
    I used a very fine sandpaper like emery cloth...

    You might get 4 yellow blinks after that.
    That is because the printhead was turned upside down to clean and the ink looked low and/or out.

    Just wait a few minutes after cleaning and reset...
    Mine worked fine after that.... smile....

    Category : Printer does not respond, or operate Description : The print head holder does not move to the center
    Close the front cover, and check the power lamp indication status (blinking or lighting). List of power lamp indications Blinks in green After lighting in green, blinks in orange 2 or more times Lights in orange Blinks alternately in green and orange, 1 time each this is the option i got on the canon website for printer head not moving to the center. but the light indication given does not match with these options.
    It is better for you to go to the above link and see what options suite your problem and follow the instruction given by the manufacturer.
