My Canon MP510 does not start up, the screen just displays "Canon" and the yellow and green light keeps on flashing one at a time. I have put the machine off and on a couple of times but it still does not work.

Orange/green lights flashing on canon mp 510. computer says not connected but all leads in place. can i fix this

I would suggest switching everything off, unplugging and starting all over again, it may be that simple.
Plan B :Un-install the driver and reinstall.
Plan C :Check that the MP510 is the default printer via Control Panel/Hardware & Sound/Printers. Click printer icon and then right click or use task bar.
The flashing lights indicate a fault on the printer itself so check for paper jams, ink cartridges in place etc.

I have canon MP510 printer 4 years old not over used. Was ok earlier in the day, now green and yellow lights flashing and paper feed light not lit. shows B200 error message. should I just buy a new...

The error B200 is an internal overheat error. It is usually associated with an overheating print head. The fault can be with the print head,carriage or even the logic board. You will not be able to locate the trouble unless those 3 items are replaced in that sequence. in other words SCRAP it as the costs will be enormous.

When i plug in the printer and turn it on, the green light flashes alternately with a yellow light, displaying the number 2 on the little screen (green, yellow, green yellow...)

Greetings - According to the MP210 manual the error is "the machine is out of paper/paper does not feed."
The remedy according to the manual is "reload the paper correctly and press the Black or Color button."
Hope that does it.
Regards, Mikeywaf

Green and yellow is a service error, but it flashes a longer green, and then the green yellow flashes, and a longer green again. You need to count the number of yellow-greens in between the longer green flashes, to know the error code.

Canon ip1800 printer not working


when the yellow led flashes is never a good signal... you should check the manual's printer to find out the error code meaning "4 yellow flashes and 1 green)
Usally it's the waste tank that is full, in this case you need to:

  1. Push “resume” for 5 seconds for canon IPXXXX.
  2. Push Power switch then remove power cord.
  3. Insert plug power cord while pressing “power switch” at the same time.
  4. Push Start/reset by step 2 continue Wait display shown “0′
  5. Push + change display from “0′ to “1′
  6. Push color button 2 times
  7. Push Power switch again , Printer will print 1 page
  8. Open cover
  9. Unplug power cord
  10. Take out ink cartridge #40 and #41
  11. Insert plug again
  12. Push power switch
  13. Open cover (scan cover)
  14. Insert ink cartridge #40 and #41 again
