Just like changing the ink, open the cover so that the carriage comes to the center, remove the inks, and then lift the handle on the side and lift out the printhead. Use either alcohol to wipe the contacts on the back of the printhead and the contacts on the carriage, or an eraser to clean then brush away any crumbs.

    Canon i550 LED error sequence: 7 orange +1 green flash


    According to Canon 7 orange flashes indicates a print head fault. Solution they recommend is to take it to one of their service agents. Problem is that replacement print heads are not cheap and it is usually more economical to replace the printer. You could try taking the print head to a cartridge refiller and have it professionally cleaned (cost you nothing or next to nothing) and see if that solves the problem.

    I have a Canon Bubble Jet i850. It is approximately 7 years old with no problems until now. I am getting 7 orange flashes, which according to the manual indicates possible defective printer head. I removed...


    The problem does indeed seem to be a print head fault. Remove it and take it to your local printer re-inking firm. Get them to do a thorough clean of the print head (they have the equipment that us mere mortals don't) and test it (should cost you nothing or very little). If it works, great! If not then get a new printer. The cost of replacing the print head would be the same or more than replacing the entire unit.

    Problem on a canon 3100


    The Power Light Flashes Orange - Error Codes When an error occurs, the power light flashes orange. The number of orange flashes followed by a long green flash indicates the cause of the problem.
    Two orange flashes: Out of paper, paper jam, or paper feed error
    If no paper is loaded in the auto sheet feeder, or if the paper is not loaded correctly, set the paper correctly and press the Resume button on the printer to continue printing.
    Three orange flashes: Paper jam
    If paper has jammed in the printer, carefully remove the jam and press the Resume button to continue printing.
    Four orange flashes: A tank inside the BJ cartridge (print head) is out of ink
    Replace the empty BJ tank and press the Resume button to continue printing.
    Five orange flashes: BJ cartridge is not installed properly
    Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely.
    Six orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is not installed
    Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely.
    Seven orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is defective
    Remove the BJ cartridge and check that the contacts on the cartridge and cartridge holder are clean. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed and reinstall the cartridge. If the error occurs again after you resume operation, you may need to replace the BJ cartridge.
    Eight orange flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full
    The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink that is consumed during print head cleaning. This error indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the Resume button to skip the error so you can continue printing.
    The POWER light flashes orange and green alternately: Service error
    A service error means the printer requires the attention of a qualified technician. Count the number of flashes. (You may be asked this information.)

    Warning light keeps flashing


    try to remove first all the paper in your paper tray.
    then try to remove and then reseat the printhead and both of the ink cartridges.
    then after the printer detects your printhead,the message is "New Printhead Detected, calibration require, load paper and press start" it will require you to to do a calibration.

    hope this will help

    Printer Not Responding, 7 orange flashes


    Don't replace the print head soooo fast...

    Take the print head out first and clean the gold contacts...
    I used a very fine sandpaper like emery cloth...

    You might get 4 yellow blinks after that.
    That is because the printhead was turned upside down to clean and the ink looked low and/or out.

    Just wait a few minutes after cleaning and reset...
    Mine worked fine after that.... smile....

    Blank pages coming out of i850 with new printhead


    Alarm / Power light flashes orange 7 times consecutively is a Print head error so it sounds like you did the right thing.

    I would reseat the printhead along with each one of the ink cartridges. Make sure that you removed the tape from the bottom of each of the ink cartridges and try it again. After installing the new printhead, you should have run a printhead cleaning cycle immediately after installing.

    Issue: Certain colors are missing or no ink prints on the paper
    Solution: Install / replace the recommended ink tanks correctly i550 / i850

    Untitled Document How to install / replace the ink tanks
    The ink tanks suitable for the printer are as follows;


    Black Ink Tank BCI-3eBK
    Cyan Ink Tank BCI-3eC
    Magenta Ink Tank BCI-3eM
    Yellow Ink Tank BCI-3eY


    Note: There are two ink tank label designs.
    Operation procedures are shown with label design A.

    labelsa.jpg Replacement Procedure


    1. Check that the printer is powered on, and open the front cover. Wait until the print head moves to the center.

    2. Remove the empty ink tank by pushing the tab on the ink tank.

    Note: When doing this, do not remove the print head. When replacing multiple ink tanks, it is recommended to replace one at a time to avoid inserting them into the wrong slots.
    (The image is an example using i850.)

    removingtank850.jpg
    3. Remove the new ink tank from its package. Pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove it completely, and remove the shrink-wrap film.

    Note: Remove the orange tape completely. If the tape remains, printing may not be performed properly.

    removingtape.jpg
    Confirm that the orange tape is completely removed from the ink tank, as shown in image 1. If the tape is similar to the sample in image 2, remove the remaining portion of the tape so that it looks like the sample shown in image 1.

    orangetape.jpg
    (1): Correct

    (2): Incorrect (where the arrow indicates)
    4. Slowly twist the orange protective cap in the direction that the arrow indicates, and remove it. To avoid ink adhering to your fingers, brace the orange protective cap while removing it.

    removecap.jpg


    5. Insert the new ink tank to the print head by holding it at a slight angle.

    Note: Confirm that the ink tanks are installed in the right order according to the labels on the print head.
    inkorder.jpg
    6. Press down on the top of the ink tank until a click sound is made.
    krik.jpg
    7. Close the front cover. The next time the printer performs printing, it will automatically start print head cleaning. The power lamp will flash while cleaning is performed. Until cleaning completes, do not perform other operations.
