The waste ink is in the inside of your printer you need to get at it to clean out,
It may be all screwed down so you need to open all up or get a shop to do it for you.
It not an easy job but maybe you are handy with a screwdriver, it can be messy job.
But after this, you will have to reset the waist ink counter or it will still not work,

SOURCE: Where can i find the serial mumber on my canon

PIXMA Printers and All-In-Ones
The serial number is located inside your PIXMA printer. To find it, open the printer lid as if you were to access the cartridges tray: the serial number is printed on a white sticker. Be careful to not confuse this number with the power supply serial number that can be found on the bottom of your printer.

Hope it helps.

Hi,

In case you haven't tried this before, here is a tip that should reset the printer.
Copied from site: http://www.cyber-ink.com/member-canon.html
To Reset ip2000 / 3000
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal..

Also note that if the carriage is not moving as it should, it has nothing to do with printer drivers or your computer. It is an internal function of the printer and no external connection (usb/ethernet) should affect its operations.

I have a Cannon i560 printer and the light on printer flashes five times orange then flashes green, what is the problem and how can I fix it.


5 flashes indicates a faulty printhead or possibly a problem with the p/head contacts. Try removing the head which is easier if you take the cartridges out first(no tools required) and re-seat it having checked the contacts for dirt.

If that doesn't work it may be that the waste ink tank is full. Try this ...

Canon S9000, S300, S400, i550, i560, i850, i860, i865, i9100, i9950, PIXMA iP3000 above,
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

When I turn on my Canon i560 printer the light blinks orange and green and will not print anything. I've tried to turn it off and on, unplug it and nothing seems to be working. What can I do to fix it?


try this. It is the reset for the waste ink error (8 flashes)

power button.)

My printer needs to have the waste ink reset how do I do this


You can try this....
  1. Turn off Canon S300, S400, S9000 Printers
  2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
  3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
  4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
  5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
  6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
  7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
  8. Your Canon S300, S400, S9000 Printers should respond as normal.
But this happens because the waste tank is full. You need to locate it and use a paper towel to absorb the waste ink. Whenever the printer cleans itself ( when a new cartridge is installed, for example) some ink is cycled into this chamber. So if you reset and it is full, overflow may occur.....
