This usually means there is a problem with one of your cartridges. Try changing them or even cleaning them sometimes works. If cleaning them does not work you will need a new manufacturer cartridge. Sometimes when you use refilled cartridges or ones that are knockoffs, the printer sometimes acts up. In that case you should just buy a normal cartridge and it should make the light go off. If you don't think that is the problem, check to make sure your cables are tightly connected. Shut off your printer and then restart it. Check to make sure there is nothing that is waiting to print. Although I am positive it is a cartridge problem. Try that solution. Cheers

If the orange light is on and remains on does that mean that the toner is out of ink and needs to be replaced?? When you press print it makes noise but won't print anything and then the orange light is on.

My Canon pixma ip 4000 won´t print. The light at the turn on button blinks five times orange and then comes one green blink. I have tried to clean the print head but that didn´t change anything....


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.
