Hi!

I had a similar problem with my black ink not printing well. I removed ALL six of the cartridges and used a Q-Tip, which I had dipped in a bottle of Windex. I put a drop on each of the heads (where the ink goes into the printer), immediately replaced all the cartridges and ran one test. It looked better, so I ran a photo to check. Every color was accurate, so I feel the Windex and Q-Tip solved my problem.

Green light, followed by yellow light flashes 5 times, then green again. Print screen says operator error, press printer's resume button.


Hi there
You can try not really know but it like your waste ink needs to be reset.

Start with the printer OFF

1. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
2. Release RESUME
3. Press RESUME twice, then release POWER
4. Wait until print head stops moving
5. Press RESUME four times (if four doesn't work try three times)
6. Press POWER once
7. Press RESUME four times (if four doesn't work try three times)
8. Press POWER once

Repeating the RESUME/POWER code twice made the difference, the fixes I found wouldn't work because they stopped at step 6.

Why flash by 5 times the orange led?


Probably your waste ink counter should be cleaned or replaced before resetting but usually you can get away with resetting once.
1. Start with printer OFF
2. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
3. Release RESUME
4. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
5. let green light blink until printhead has finished moving.
6. Select functions below with RESUME, execute with POWER

0 presses - green light - Test Print (exit service for i960)
1 press - orange light - EEPROM info print
2 presses - green light - EEPROM initialise
3 presses - orange light - reset waste ink counter.

This also applies to the i550, i560, i950, i960

Good Luck, I hope this helps?!
