Question about Canon i950 InkJet Photo Printer

Canon Printer i950

Hi. Our problem is that the printer simply won't print. We've gone through Canon's troubleshooting sequence and exausted all the solutions they've offered and we seem to have lost the printer manual. The middle light is flashing intermittantly orange and then green, but the error message isn't giving us anything specific other than that it can't print and we should cancel the print job. Very frustrating indeed. I hope you can help us. Thanks & regards, Helena

    I have the same problem as Helena...Intermitant light flashes. 4/5 quick orange flashes followed by a longer Green flash. The exact same symptons; cant print anything, though the computer recognizes the printer is plugged in. Any help?

Purchased a Canon i950 for years ago... printing beautifully... did not use for the last two months and now has just stopped printing... reinstalled driver, still same problem - does not print a test page...


Check if the printer status is ready under Control Panel- Printers.

Make sure that correct port is used (Printer properties- Ports tab).

Also, check if the printer is online. Control Panel-Right click printer and choose Use Printer Online.

Hope this helps.

I have a defective print head on my canon i950 printer.


I believe the print heads are under the ink cartridges. They might have little handles on them.

Dear tigerdawg,
As my longtime experience, it seems that any other material such as broken paper,etc present inside paper path of your printer. Please check and remove the material. If you cannot do this by yourself you may ask someone or take the printer to the nearest service center. I hope this help you then rate this as fixya.
