It could be a lid open sensor issue, if you put pressure on the lid does the light turn green? it is common for ir sensor to fade over time and if the reflectiveness of the case above the sensor fades you get this error too. the sensor is to the right of the roller and if you clean or place a sticker on the LID facing the sensor it can fix the problem

SOURCE: canon bjc 240/orange light stays on

The blinking orange light could mean one or more of the following: -Home position error -Waste ink full error -Temperature sensor error -Printing position correction error -Cleaning error -Printer memory error I would probably clean the waste ink tank first. Make sure you unplug it first. Take the cartridge out and clean real good at the bottom.

this indicates a the print head is not installed correctly or is faulty.

if the green and orange is alternating 5 times then it is caused by the sheet feeder.

I hava a i850 -- when I turn it on and it goes thru its set up then the amber light comes on blinks 7 times stops then blinks again 7 times -- cannot stop it -- also when I open it the print head stays in...


Hello.

From Canon:

Probably your waste ink counter. Should be cleaned or replaced before resetting but usually you can get away with resetting once.
1. Start with printer OFF
2. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
3. Release RESUME
4. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
5. let green light blink until printhead has finished moving.
6. Select functions below with RESUME, execute with POWER

0 presses - green light - Test Print
1 press - orange light - EEPROM info print
2 presses - green light - EEPROM initialise
3 presses - orange light - reset waste ink counter.

Hope this helps.

Printer orange light flashing 2 and 5 times, servive error 5100


Hi You can Try 2 things.
All the luck for you
There is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there



Next try.

It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.
