Have you tried holding the power button in the off position for between 5 and 15 seconds, before letting it up again? Sometimes, manufacturers will build in a delay of sorts, to prevent acidental powering off of devices like printers and computers themselves.

Hold that off button in the off position for upwards of 5 seconds, and maybe to 10 or more seconds, to see if that does it.

Good luck.

    Green and orange lights flashing, saying service error 6000

    read all first!
    you didn't say how many blinking
    and in what order so ...
    First thing you need to do is print an EEPROM information page, step number 2 below.
    Once you have an EEPROM print you can reset the waste ink counter, if needed, which is step number 4 below.
    Service Mode: This printer has a service mode for service-related settings and for performing test prints. The operator panel buttons are used to enter the desired service mode.
    Service Mode Operations
    With the printer powered off, hold down the "Resume Button" and press the "Power Button".

    While holding down the "Power Button", release the Resume Button" and press the "Resume Button" twice in succession. Now release the "Power Button".

    The indicator will blink in green and remain lit in green.

    Select one of the following service mode functions by pressing the “Resume Button” the specified number of times.

    1 time = Service test print.
    2 times = EEPROM information print.
    3 times = EEPROM initialization
    4 times = Waste ink counter resetting
    5 times = Destination settings
    6 times = Print head deep cleaning

    Then press the “Power Button” one time to perform selected function.

    If you press the "Power Button" two times it will take you out of service mode.

    This information is listed above in this thread and many times in other Canon threads in this forum. I simplified Canons wording so I could remember the service mode functions easier.

    The printer apear to be dead!

    Buttons and lights on the printer Two buttons and three lights are located on the front of an HP Deskjet printer.
    • The lights tell when the printer is working or when it needs attention.
    • The buttons help control the printer.
    Buttons and lights Purpose c00123886.jpg POWER button and light Push the POWER button to turn the printer off and on. When lit, the light shows that the printer is turned on. c00123889.jpg RESUME button and light The light blinks when there is a problem with paper. When the problem is corrected, press the button. c00123892.jpg Print cartridge light The light blinks when there is a problem with a print cartridge. When the problem is corrected and the top cover is closed, the light will stop blinking. Troubleshooting blinking printer lights Blinking lights Reason c00123895.jpg

    All lights are off. The printer is off (asleep).

    Press the POWER buttonc00123886.jpg to turn the printer on.

    The printer should turn on automatically when a print job is sent to it. c00123898.jpg

    The POWER (top) light is on. The printer is idle.

    The printer is ready to print a document. c00123900.jpg

    The POWER (top) light is blinking. The printer is busy printing.

    Allow enough time to print. When a document has many fonts or graphics or uses complex color such as a color photo, it takes longer to begin printing. c00123902.jpg

    The PRINT CARTRIDGE (bottom) light is blinking. Possible causes:

    • The front cover is open. Make sure the front cover is completely closed.
    • The print cartridge is missing. Make sure the print cartridge has been installed correctly.
    • The print cartridge is broken or incompatible. Lift the front cover, and wait for the print-cartridge cradle to slide out. Check the part numbers on the print cartridge:

    Black: 51645A

    Color: C1823D,

    If the print cartridges are compatible and correctly installed, they may be defective. Try replacing the print cartridges.

    If none of the above suggestions fix the problem, and, if the error message still occurs, it may be a hardware failure. Call the HP Customer Support Center.
