The ink warning light flashes, and won't go off, even after I've put a new cartridge in. I've unplugged the printer, turned it off and on, plugged the cable back in, and it won't go off.

A blinking orange light means an empty or incorrectly installed ink cartridge. Ensure that the cartridge is not empty or dried out. Also be sure you installed the number 45 black and number 78 tri color cartridges. The 41 tri-color, for example, looks the same but would generate an error. Also, check that the panel in the back, or duplexer if you have one, is seated firmly in the printer as this can generate odd errors.

Error 5200:


Start with printer powered off
1. Open cover of printer and verify that the ink cartridge carriage is not in the center of the printer. Leave cover open.
2. Unplug the electrical cord from the printer and wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug electrical cord back in, when ink cartridge carriage moves to the center of the printer quickly unplug the electrical cord again. This should leave the ink cartridge carriage in the center of the printer so you can get to it.
4. Lift up the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridges.
5. Remove the entire ink cartridge holder (not just the ink cartridges). It will lift out easily as a unit. Lower the gray arm that you lifted to remove the cartridge holder.

All the lights are flashing. I have put in a new cartridge, unplugged and turned off the machine, I cleaned it with the air duster. It will not work


Try the following tricks:
Disconnect any USB cables attached to the printer and remove any memory cards from drive bay. Restart the computer. Unlock the ink cartridge locking clips. Remove all ink cartridges. Lock down the ink cartridge locking clips. Close the main printer door Turn the printer off with the Power button and wait for the printer to shut down. Unplug the printer AC adapter from the printer and the wall outlet or surge protector. Wait approximately fifteen to forty-five seconds to allow all current to dissipate from printer. Re-plug only the AC adapter into the wall outlet then into the printer, but do not plug in the USB cable. Wait for the appropriate missing ink cartridge error to verify that printer can recognize this error. Re-insert one ink cartridge only, to minimize confusion in case one of the cartridges is defective, and print an internal test page. If no errors are found, insert the other ink cartridge(s) and ensure that they are functioning by performing internal test pages or calibration pages. If an error occurs due to a defective cartridge, perform the appropriate steps for Resolving Ink Cartridge Rejections. After returning to the main Windows screen, reconnect the USB cable to the computer then to the printer. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Re:Canon Multipass C3500ex


Don, have you unplugged the printer for a few minutes? first the power plug, see if that clears it. If not, unplug it from the computer, reboot the computer, then plug printer back in. If not that,when an ink cartridge is refilled (depending on the model) the printer needs to be tricked into thinking a "new" cartidge is being installed. They make their money from the ink, not as much the printer. You may need to check the owners manual to see if the is the case. I have had to use tape to block off certain contacts, then remove the cartidge and block off another section of contacts, then remove tape all together and re-insert the cartridge.
