The power and orange caution light on my canon mg2920 pima printer wont stop blinking and the printer wont print anything. can i get some help


do a google search for "canon error codes" and then count the number of orange flashes in your sequence. Compare that number with the options on google and that should identify your fault. If it is a general purpose "refer to technician" fault you should probably just replace the machine.

Canon i350 printer won't print; alternates flashing green/orange.


Sounds like the printer head is clogged or damaged.

I believe that sequence stands for (error sending data to print head). Not sure if it can be repaired or not, its hit or miss with the canon printers.

The ip series, the heads were removable and the whole section could be replaced. Give canon a call and see if thats possible with the i350 series. Worse case you will have to replace the whole printer.

Hope this helps.

My canon s520


The user guide for that product says that 7 flashes means the printhead is defective and that you should contact Canon's customer care. If you've recently replaced the print cartridge(s), try putting the old one(s) back in. If the printhead is truly defective, there may be no choice but to contact Canon or replace the printer.
