I finally disconnected the power cord and re-pluged it in. That seemed to clear the problem. I only use it occasionally and it seems to be a problem that developes when I disconnect the USB cord from the front of the CPU. Though I solved it myself it is nice to know there is somewhere I can go to ask for help. THANKS!

My Canon pixma ip 4000 won´t print. The light at the turn on button blinks five times orange and then comes one green blink. I have tried to clean the print head but that didn´t change anything....


this indicates a the print head is not installed correctly or is faulty.

if the green and orange is alternating 5 times then it is caused by the sheet feeder.

When I turn my IP 3000 on the green light only blink 9 time no orange light at all I did try to reset no sucess as the green light keep blinking 9 time any help


9 flashes should only occur if you are trying to print directly from a non-compatible digital camera. Check where your USB cable is plugged into the printer. The cable coming from the computer should go into a 'square' port in the back of the printer -- not the rectangular port on the lower right side of the front of the printer.

There could be 2 reason for this error. You can either reset the error or try and clean the printer from inside which might be causing the problem. Below are the 2 steps:

STEP 1: Clean the printer from inside
  1. Opened the cover and checked the front right of the printer near the waste ink pads
  2. Carefully turn the cogs to move the ink cleaning mechanism
  3. There might be a load of paper jam debris blocking the mechanism from reaching its port
  4. Carefully cleaning this out and putting the printer back together

STEP 2: Reset the error

1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

6) Power off then back on and test.

Blinking lights


This exact thing just happened to me. I tried EVERYTHING in the way of troubleshooting - turned printer off/on, plugged/unplugged, opened/closed top, pressed all the buttons on the front right - FINALLY, I took out and put back in both ink cartridges and the light finally went to just green, as it should be AND it printed! Hope this helps!

Hp 1350 all-in-one


When power is applied to the all-in-one for the first time, the power light is solid and the check paper, check print cartridge, black copy, and color copy lights flash, the display will be blank, and the all-in-one will not respond. One or more of the following symptoms will also be observed: The all-in-one keeps turning off Cannot print, scan, or copy The print carriage will not move Windows plug and play (device detection) does not occur The all-in-one does not respond when buttons are pressed, including the power button. SOLUTION: This problem occurs for two reasons: the front panel cover was not installed or the ink cartridge access door was not closed before plugging in the all-in-one. The front panel overlay must be correctly installed before the power cord is plugged in. Follow the steps below to correct the problem: Disconnect the power cord. Lift the scanner lid and carefully line up and install the front panel overlay. Plug the power cord in. The print cartridge access door must be closed before the all-in-one is plugged in for the first time. The all-in-one cannot complete its first initialization until the door is closed. Follow the steps below to correct the problem: Disconnect the power cord. Locate and close the print cartridge access door. CAUSE: The all-in-one initializes when it is plugged in for the first time. While initializing, the all-in-one scans a bar code on the under side of the front panel cover requiring that the front panel cover be in place and that the scanner be operable. The scanner cannot operate when the cartridge access door is open On light (green) - On Check Paper light (amber) - Blink Simultaneously Check Print Cartridge light (amber) - Blink Simultaneously Black copy area backlight (green)- Blink Simultaneously Color copy area backlight (green) - Blink Simultaneously Issue Front panel overlay is not attached at all or not attached properly Solution Turn Off the all-in-one. Attach front panel overlay as instructed on Setup Poster. Turn On the all-in-one.
