Close the front cover, and check the power lamp indication status (blinking or lighting). List of power lamp indications Blinks in green After lighting in green, blinks in orange 2 or more times Lights in orange Blinks alternately in green and orange, 1 time each this is the option i got on the canon website for printer head not moving to the center. but the light indication given does not match with these options.

Your solution for powering down and reinstalling the print cartridges did the trick. My printer is no longer flashing orange 2 times and is now printing.
Thanks a bunch!

From the description it sounds like something is 'telling' the software that paper is jammed (somewhere) .. the fact that the print head moved 'out of the way' to the left suggests that it's trying to get you to remove the jammed paper from the RIGHT hand side ...
At a guess, replacing the waste ink pad has resulted in 'something' being reassembled out of alighment (hence the 'paper jam' detect) .. it's hard to say what .. perhaps some 'sensor', near the right hand side of the guide bar ???

The waste-ink counter for the BJ F900, F890, F700, F500, S900, S820, S750 and S520 are all reset in the same manner.
Turn off the printer.
Press and hold the RESUME button, then press and hold the POWER button.
Release the RESUME button, then press and release the RESUME button two more times in succession. (youre still holding the POWER button during this). The printer mechanics will move momentarily.
You are now in Service mode.
Pressing the RESUME key will select a function; for example, pressing RESUME 4 times will select the clear waste ink counter function. The lamp will alternate color with each key press.
1. service/factory test printout, including ink sensor check
2. EEPROM info printout
3. EEPROM initialization
4. Clear the waste-ink counter
5. Printer model setting. (more selections beyond this- leave this alone)
After selecting mode, press the POWER button to commit the change, and return to the top of the function selection menu. Pressing the POWER button again turns off the printer for a restart.
If you have a defective printer head, your power lamp may flash during the service mode key-in, and info printouts may not work. In this case, clearing the waste-ink counter may not fix your problem.
