Question about Canon BJC S500 InkJet Printer
Problem occurred after replacing all the ink cartridges. took print head out and completely cleaned........after doing the reset procedure I found on the blog on this website, I was able to print a test, and subsequent pages just fine. Turned off the printer and now blinking yellow 7 times again and not able to reset. What can I do, or it is time for a new printer?

I have similar problem. I found this solution that may help you. My problem insists tho.
>>> 5 flashes indicates a faulty printhead or possibly a problem with the p/head contacts. Try removing the head which is easier if you take the cartridges out first(no tools required) and re-seat it having checked the contacts for dirt.
If that doesn't work it may be that the waste ink tank is full. Try this ...
Canon S9000, S300, S400, i550, i560, i850, i860, i865, i9100, i9950, PIXMA iP3000 above,
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

Your printheads are indeed clogged. (Note: all ij printers should be powered off when not in use! This retracts & seals your printheads.) Now, on to your problem. In your printer software, there should be a maintenance section. In there, you need to clean the printheads - this may have to be done *many* times - like 10-ish to clear (if still possible) clogged ink.
Hope this helps.

Canon printers do not like the refilled ink cartridges. After having ruined a few printers trying to "save" money. I went back to genuine Canon ink and have never had a problem since.
