    6 flashing orange lights. Error window shows printer not responding. Have re-installed software. Still same problem. Have checked power cords etc. seem OK. 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,

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.

Orange light is flashing

I cleaned out the printer by removing any access toner. Made sure again no paper was stuck and then it worked.

Hp 845c orange light keeps flashing

When the orange light is flashing, either paper jam or ink problem is happening.Try unloaging & reloading the stack of paper in the main tray. Remove & reinsert ink cartridges in the printer. You may also clean the contacts of the cartridge and inside the product.
