In general, Canon use a 5 Orange light flashes sequence to signal a Print Head problem.

It may be as simple as adjust the alignment of the print head or removing and re seating the printhead.

You may also have a failure that will require a repair.

Do I need a new print head?


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.

All of the cartridges(genuine Canon parts)are full and all the tank LEDs are lit in the filling position of the tanks on my PIXMA iP3500. When the cover is closed, the tanks return to the usage position...


Sometimes you can get a defective cartridge, and Canon will replace it for no charge, or the store it came from. When the cartridge is OK, the pins that contact the small circuit board could be bent or broken. It sounds like the yellow cartridge is bad.

Ink tank error message Canon iP3500


Canon ink tanks contain a chip allowing the printer to identify genuine ink tanks. You need to buy reasonable quality replacement ink tanks i.e. from (Google) 'Inkjets & Toners'
