Printer wont go online - light continually flashing green to yellow...

After printer failed to print document, I noticed the light on the printer, which is usually green when online, is now flashing green to orange to green ... Have turned printer off several times, makes no difference, have disconnected power to printer for a number of minutes, still no change. Prior to attempting to print document today we had experienced some power failures overnight. HELP! I'm tearing my hair out.

    I pushed the paper feed button, but no change. When the machine is online the light between the ON button and the PAPERFEED button is green, but at the moment that light is constantly flashing green then orange then green then orange... Usually when you need to press the paper feed button the light is orange.

    Thanx for your help Prem. I completed all the steps you suggested, but no luck. A printer status message now reads 'The used ink tank is full'. I looked at the user manual on my Printer driver CD and it said that I must take the printer to a Technician to rectify this waste tank problem. As the machine is approx. 6 years old and I am hundreds of kilometres from a Canon dealer, I will retire my trusty Canon i250 and use my alternative printer. Thanx again. mabswilson

Canon ip100 portable printer ink cradle stuck on right hand side


I had this same problem. Count the number of blinks in sequence of the error light. it will flash green and yellow, and then just straight yellow for a number of flashes, then it will flash green again and the same number of yellow flashes again. Here is the diagnostic guide.

Two flashes: Printer is out of paper. Paper does not feed

Three flashes: Paper jam

Four Flashes: The Print Head Lock Lever is not locked properly / Ink tank is not installed properly. / Ink may have run out

Five flashes: Print Head is not installed./ Print Head is defective

Eight flashes: Ink absorber is almost full

Nine flashes:No response from connected digital camera or video camcorder/Connected digital camera or video camcorder is not compatible with this printer./PictBridge compliant devices are attached to both Direct Print Port and Bluetooth Unit Connector

Eleven flashes: Automatic Print Head Alignment failed

Twelve Flashes: Low battery level

Fifteen Flashes: Ink tank cannot be recognized

Seventeen Flashes: Ink has run out

Eighteen Flashes: Printer detected ink out condition

Nineteen Flashes: A USB hub is connected

Mine had 10 Flashes and the Print Carriage, was bad. Cost almost as much as another printer so thats what I did. I did take it apart and got it unstuck, but still didn't work.

After every page I print, the green light goes out, and I have to press online to get it to continue printing.


Thats ..paper size mismatch, check the paper size settings of your printer in printer properties is the same as what document or document program is set to under page size of the document you wish to print, if these dont match the printer goes offline so you can put in what it's been told is the right size paper or press online to force it to print regardless...so in your case check paper size in both locations and you should be right, there are other things but 99% of the time..thats ya baby;)

Canon ip1800 printer not working


Hi,

when the yellow led flashes is never a good signal... you should check the manual's printer to find out the error code meaning "4 yellow flashes and 1 green)
Usally it's the waste tank that is full, in this case you need to:

  1. Push “resume” for 5 seconds for canon IPXXXX.
  2. Push Power switch then remove power cord.
  3. Insert plug power cord while pressing “power switch” at the same time.
  4. Push Start/reset by step 2 continue Wait display shown “0′
  5. Push + change display from “0′ to “1′
  6. Push color button 2 times
  7. Push Power switch again , Printer will print 1 page
  8. Open cover
  9. Unplug power cord
  10. Take out ink cartridge #40 and #41
  11. Insert plug again
  12. Push power switch
  13. Open cover (scan cover)
  14. Insert ink cartridge #40 and #41 again

Canon i860 "printer offline" but light is blinking


Move mouse pointer on to your printer icon in the Printer folder. Does a right click and click on the sixth line of the menu (“Use printer on line”). Then it will change as “Use printer offline”. Make sure the printer is set as default printer.
