Have you tried changing the batteries? If not try holding the On/Off button for 5 seconds.

Im trying to charge my camera via computer. . there is a red light on the charge cable connector and a green light on the camera which i have switched "on". it still says "low battery even...


Hi, I'd suggest using a wall charger as they're able to provide more power to charge then a computers USB port. Often with camera's the USB port doesn't supply enough power so the camera doesn't charge at all.

Cannon i865. Operator Error message and blinking orange light (5 blinks). Switching off power does not reset. Also used reset technique from this site, this does not seem to work. Any more ideas?


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 ...
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.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

When I turn on my Canon i560 printer the light blinks orange and green and will not print anything. I've tried to turn it off and on, unplug it and nothing seems to be working. What can I do to fix it?


try this. It is the reset for the waste ink error (8 flashes)

1) With the printer power OFF, while pressing the Resume button, press the Power button. (Do not release the
power button.)
2) While pressing the Power button, release the Resume button, press the Resume button again twice, and then
release the Resume button and Power button.
3) The green indicator flashes during initialization.
When the indicator stops flashing and remains on, press the Resume button 4 times to clear waste ink message.
(The indicator toggles between orange and green each time the Resume button is pressed.)
4) Next, press the Power button, and the green indicator will light, and the function will be executed.
5) Turn off the printer then back on and error should clear.

When i press the power on button the green light fashes


You should press the button for about three seconds. This is to ensure that you don't turn on the camera by accident (f. ex. in your bag or pocket)

Power key doesn´t work


There must be a problem with your batteries. If you have recently charged your batteries and it happens again, you should try a new set of rechargeable batteries.

You can try conserving charging power usage on camera by turning the flash off so that it doesn't precharge for the next shot.

Camera does not turn on


Hello, reset in this case is not a solution. Maybe your lens is stuck. For further info please contact me at LIVE session. Best regards, Arpi

Problem with printing


Sorry the manual doesn't help much either... this is what it says, "POWER lamp flashes alternate green and orange Turn the printer off and unplug the printer from the power supply. Plug the printer back in and turn the printer back on. If the problem remains, contact a Canon service representative."

You could try the following reset code which works when reseting after emptying the waste ink tank:

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.


Hope it helps
