The power light flashing orange four times consecutively means that one, or both, of the inktanks is/are installed incorrectly. Follow the steps below to resolve the issue.

  1. Check to make sure that the ink tanks are locked into position (you might remove and reinstall them just to make sure).
  2. Turn the printer off with the power button, unplug the data cable (most likely usb) and the power cable and let it sit for at least 10 minutes (this resets all of the sensors that may be causing the problem). Then plug in the power cable and data cable and turn the printer back on.
  3. If that doesn't fix it then it means that it is a hardware issue and that your printer is in need of repair, at least that's what canon will tell you but now days it's usually cheaper just to buy a new printer and you don't have to go to the trouble of finding a repair center and taking it there and waiting days to get it back.
I hope this helped

Cannon Pixma ip90 printer mechanical failure code 5100. Printer works for about 2 inches then stops with failure code 5100


The error 5100 actually means nothing. You need to look at the printers green and orange lights. they will be flashing in a certain sequence. Count the way the lamps flash ie.Green are mechanical faults and orange are operator correctable faults. When you have the info repost and i will help you further.

Orange light flashes on when turn on Olympus c-50 zoom camera and orange and green lights in upper left corner blink when try to take pictures. Won't take any pictures


The flashing Orange light means the charge is flashing.
The flashing Green light means the focus and exposure are not correct.

Have you recently replaced the batteries? Or are you using rechargeable batteries? Lack of enough "Juice" could allow for the flash to not charge up (Orange) therefore not allowing the camera to get the correct exposure (Green). I would try new fresh batteries or a new battery pack. If that doesn't fix the issue it must be a bad circuitry in the body that is shorting not letting the flash charge.

Jacob

Yellow light flashes 4 times


4 Flashes says the ink tank is not installed or not installed properly. When the ink is in correctly it may have a bad switch which is under the ink tank and means you need a new carriage assembly.

Hi Chris,
Error code 5c00 (flash in orange /green 4 times) indicates that purge unit has broken so that the printhead is locked down when initializing process performed. Sorry I have to say that no first aid for this problem unless you bring it to nearest service centre for part replacement. Hope this information helpful for you.
