Have referred to windows help page...followed various suggested actions. still not working. I suspect the Print head cartridge has failed. Also in help, right cliked on Canon S400 icon, went to details, followed instruction into window asking for "PATH". I cannot understand or find this?? Can you help? Regards Peter Richards

    canon i550 screen says "printer not responding". It is connected by USB. I have tried all the things I could find with no luck. The power light flashes green for a few seconds then flashes orange 7 times, then back to green for a few seconds then back to orange 7 times and the cycle repeats endlessly, it will do that for days. If I push the power button, the print carage moves back and forth like it is going to print, then it turns off and the light goes out. Pushing the power button again the green light comes on green followed by the repeting cycle of 7 orange flashes and repeats. Note: I have a cannon MP160 that will work without a problem.

If you still can print, it signal's low ink. If it flashes immediately as you turn on the printer and nothing's happen with the printer or no movement or unusable due to error flashing, there is an error either with your ink cartridges (need raplacement) and or hardware mechanical errors. Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Ford mondeo faults

the flashing orange light is the glowplug light that telling you there is a engine managment problem. you need to get the fault code out of the engine control module with a obd code reader to determine the cause but the common cause of the flashing glow plug warning is a air leak after the turbo charger

Cannon Pixma ip90 printer mechanical failure code 5100. Printer works for about 2 inches then stops with failure code 5100

The error 5100 actually means nothing. You need to look at the printers green and orange lights. they will be flashing in a certain sequence. Count the way the lamps flash ie.Green are mechanical faults and orange are operator correctable faults. When you have the info repost and i will help you further.

The orange light or the battery keeps flashing orange, I have renewed the battery and it is sitll continuing to do the same thing.

If you have replaced the battery then it is either the charger or the motherboard which is at fault. Be sure that the input jack for the charger on the computer is not loose. Try using another charger to check which is at fault.

Flashing lights on cd changer, Peugeot 307!

There are a few variations of this model eg; IDCA09,IDCA04,Fiat & aftermarket units.As already stated these models do suffer from mechanism faults quite a lot.This is due mostly to the complexity of the mechanics.The flashing lights are a classic symptom of a jammed or broken part of the mechanism.They can however be repaired by certain car audio repair centres here in the UK.I'm afraid unless you know what you're doing then just by stripping the mechanism down is unlikely to cure the faults than can occur.
