    i550 flashes orange 7 times then once green, status check says error "printer not responding"; also, with printer alone (w/o USB plugged in) still gives same flashing lites pattern. Tried doing EPROM reset procedure, did not help. (Procedure: hold down reset button, then power on held down at same time, then still holding power down, press and repress reset button several times, to clear printer eprom.) but did not help, still same problem. Also, removed ink cartridges, then removed print head, cleaned and soaked print head in warm water let dry overnite, reinstalled all, still same problem..Also, corruption started likely with registry file altered, as two other printers now have same behavior/problem, wont print, flashing lite same pattern. Corrupted OS file spread to all printers. May have somehow damaged all printheads, as this is what this seven orange flashes indicates with the i550 canon printer. Reinstalled drivers several times, no help. Tried updated drivers, no help. Printer shows same error even with USB unplugged. Problem is transferred to damage within printer itself, wont undo, even with eprom reset. Printer will not respond to computer printer driver's maintanance commands. Gives status error, printer not responding, with same flashing lites pattern. Printer is as if is "locked up." Wont respond at all. Either eprom corrupted, damaged, or somehow frozen. Yet gives print head error fault. On several printers after each connected to same computer, then this error fault displays on all printers. Is spread to each printer, as if a corrupted file from computer in turn damages printer functionality, in separate printers. Yet printers wont reset, eprom is frozen, stuck, in locked up error state.

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.

Since replacing 2 ink cartrides the printer doesn't work. The on/off light is flashing yellow


Have you tried unplugging the power cord from the back of the printer waiting a few seconds and plugging it back in. This may help it recognize the cartridges.
