    Too late. It's been trashed. Too bad. Loved the little thing when it worked. Wish I'd heard earlier....but thanks anyway. Think it was 3 oranges followed by a green, over and over. Did I screw up ?

    Your printer may not be dead, at$200.00 they're anything but disposable. You need to count how many times the lights blink amber and green. It's a repeating pattern with a longer green and starts over. Could be printhead problem, absorber full error, or just a scrap of paper somewhere. Let me know the number of flashes before you toss it out.

You Canon printer seems to have RETIRED when it does that. It is a common canon prblem and that is why the smaller canon printers are referred to as DISPOSABLE printers. The motherboard of the printer has got a problem on it and would cost more that the price of a new printer to have fixed.

Canon i320 amber light flashing will not print


I believe that 7 amber flashes refer to a cartridge error. Check that the cartridge is seated correctly.

Canon i70 print head does not move to the middle


THERE IS A CODE THAT UNLOCKS THE HEAD. IT MAY BE THE SAME AS THE I80 PRINTER. DO NOT FORCE HEAD. THE CODE IS PUNCHED IN BY THE FEED BUTTON AT THE TOP. I WILL TRY TO FIND THE CODE AND REPOST.
