Aye Caramba! Not good. Are you plugging into a power strip? Sounds like you have a bad ground in cord. Don't get mad, but did you try another outlet? If you have and this is still happening you have a bad power distribution board. OR, or you may just have a bad cord b check tho see if nothing is jammed against the ground lug and one of the plug extensions. LET me know. Jim.

Printer is paused all the time


Hello, sounds like your drivers are messed up, reload them to the computer or the connection cable maybe bad. If neither of these fix then the printer is bad.

Popping noise and now won't power up. Red and green indicator lights blink on front of tv.


start by checking the power supply in the set and if not able to do that consider taking it to a shop for an estimate.

Pixma ip1600 won't turn on. No power cord just a cord from printer to computer. I unpluged the entire system and waited 15 minutes and it still won't power up. Any suggestions?


You need the power cord which has a polarized plug on one end. The other end (a figure 8 like shape) will fit into the printer. See http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/7/0900005347/01/ip1600esi_us.pdf . Amazon and other sites have replacement power cords for Canon inkjets and inkjet multifunction printers. One source: http://www.amazon.com/Canon-ip1600-ip6600d-ip6700d-Printer/dp/B003XT2LKC .

I hope this helps.

Z1380 green power light flashing constantly. Cartridges not returning to right hand side of printer. No printing possible.


The flashing light on your printer could indicate either a paper jam or a cartridge problem. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. While cover is open, check for any obstructions in the cartridge carrier's path. Close the cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, insert one cartridge first. Close the cover and check for any errors. If none, re-insert your other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty. If cartridges are fine, load some paper (avoid overloading). Also, use the specified paper types and sizes for your model. Try to print again.

I am refilling the black ink of my canon printer using continuous ink container but the black color doesn't flow into the end of the hose and it didn't print at all, please help


  • Check the printer's power/alarm light. If it is flashing orange, count the number of flashes. Look up the flash code in your printer's user manual to diagnose the problem.
  • 2 Remove and reinstall the ink cartridges if the power/alarm light flashes 5, 7 or 15 times consecutively. This indicates that the issue is a cartridge error, an incorrectly installed cartridge, or an unrecognized cartridge. These errors can be fixed by reinstalling the ink cartridges. Make sure that you are using the correct ink cartridges for your Canon printer.

  • Turn on the printer and open the front cover. The ink cartridge holder should move to the replacement position.
  • 4 Verify that the colored ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the right and the black ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the left. Swap the cartridges and reinstall them in the correct slots if necessary.
  • 5 Check to see that both ink cartridges are level with one other and parallel to the top of the ink cartridge holder. If either cartridge is wedged at an angle, gently apply pressure to the cartridge until it clicks into the correct position.
  • 6 Close the front cover of your Canon printer and wait while the printer initializes the newly installed cartridges. This can take a minute or two.

    Cannon Speedlite 270EX doesn't turn on and I put new batteries in


    Try cleaning out the contacts where the batteries touch. Make sure the battery door is completely flush with the body and see if you've inserted everything correctly. The type of battery you use also effects the flash recycle time and how it operates too. Have you tried using different types of batteries? Try using NI-MH instead of Alkaline and see if the speedlite will power. There's a test button on the flash and also an off-on switch you can try toggling around. The flash itself is very simple so if it still won't power on after all of that, you should contact customer support.
