Question about Canon i850 InkJet Photo Printer
When I print a page it comes out blank. I have cleaned the printer heads and still not printing. What should I do?
I had the same problem after changing the black ink cartridge. I went to Control Panel of my computer, chose Printers, then Canon Inkjet. Chose Properties, then Maintenance, the Deep Cleaning. NOW my printer is working!!

If your printer ink cartridges have ink in them but the printer is not printing, I would suspect the print head is clogged with dry ink. You can purchase print head cleaning solutions and try them or purchase a new print head. I do not recommend buying a new printer, your I850 uses unchipped cartridges which are inexpensive and refillable. Try http://officestoredepot.com/. I bought a print head for my Canon S750 and a 20 lot set of cartridges there and am very pleased. Use this as a start to hunt for print heads and/or ink Carts. Do your research and then make an informed decision.

Alarm / Power light flashes orange 7 times consecutively is a Print head error so it sounds like you did the right thing.
I would reseat the printhead along with each one of the ink cartridges. Make sure that you removed the tape from the bottom of each of the ink cartridges and try it again. After installing the new printhead, you should have run a printhead cleaning cycle immediately after installing.
Issue: Certain colors are missing or no ink prints on the paper
Solution: Install / replace the recommended ink tanks correctly i550 / i850
Untitled Document How to install / replace the ink tanks
The ink tanks suitable for the printer are as follows;
Black Ink Tank BCI-3eBK
Cyan Ink Tank BCI-3eC
Magenta Ink Tank BCI-3eM
Yellow Ink Tank BCI-3eY
Note: There are two ink tank label designs.
Operation procedures are shown with label design A.
1. Check that the printer is powered on, and open the front cover. Wait until the print head moves to the center.
2. Remove the empty ink tank by pushing the tab on the ink tank.
Note: When doing this, do not remove the print head. When replacing multiple ink tanks, it is recommended to replace one at a time to avoid inserting them into the wrong slots.
(The image is an example using i850.)
3. Remove the new ink tank from its package. Pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove it completely, and remove the shrink-wrap film.
Note: Remove the orange tape completely. If the tape remains, printing may not be performed properly.
Confirm that the orange tape is completely removed from the ink tank, as shown in image 1. If the tape is similar to the sample in image 2, remove the remaining portion of the tape so that it looks like the sample shown in image 1.
(2): Incorrect (where the arrow indicates)
4. Slowly twist the orange protective cap in the direction that the arrow indicates, and remove it. To avoid ink adhering to your fingers, brace the orange protective cap while removing it.
5. Insert the new ink tank to the print head by holding it at a slight angle.
Note: Confirm that the ink tanks are installed in the right order according to the labels on the print head.
6. Press down on the top of the ink tank until a click sound is made.
7. Close the front cover. The next time the printer performs printing, it will automatically start print head cleaning. The power lamp will flash while cleaning is performed. Until cleaning completes, do not perform other operations.
