Question about Canon PIXMA iP5000 InkJet Photo Printer

2 Answers

Power light is blinking and it is not printing

I have a canon IP5000 printer. The power light on my computer is blinking about every 6 seconds (slower than reading the memory to print) When i hold it down it blinks fast but does not turm off. Also the button under neath the flap that moves the ink cartridges to the middle does not work or light us as well. Either does the other one above that. Do you know what the problem is. Everything is plugged in. My computer says it is printing and it is not on my printer. It does not print a test page either. Is my printer done.

    How do you find out if there is a paper jam. It is clear at the back of the printer that you take the flap down. I also don't see any paper that if from the front ect. I also can't find the printer warning lights are. Is there a specific name they are called that i can find them in the manual. thanks

    My printer won't shut off. Only when you unplug it. When you push the power button and hold it it only blinks quickly and it doesn't shut off no matter what i do.

    if you speak french:



    Mon imprimante ip5000 CANON presente un probleme a la mise en marche; lorsque l' on appui sur l' interrupteur I/O, le voyant s' eclaire quelques instants puis s' eteint.

    Si je maintiens l' interrupteur appuye, le voyant reste allume mais s' eteint des que je le lache.

    Je suis tres satisfait de cette imprimante et j' aimerai la reparer pour continuer a l' utiliser.



    Merci pour votre reponse,

It is possibly a jam warning or "printer cleaner head full" warning. Check your manual for what the canon warning lights mean for your particular unit.

A quick fix you can try. Unplug your printer, press and hold the power button and plug it in while holding the power button, it should reset your printer...

If the blinking still persist, have a qualified technician take a look at it...

I have my PIXMA iP5000 printer set up but it keeps saying it is offline. How do I connect my printer so it is online?


Try a new USB (A/B m/m) cable and try plugging into a different port. Make sure the USB ports aren't disabled for power-savings or security. (The first is an advanced power setting found from the Screen Saver (Control Panel); the second is found in the Device Manager.) If you have a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection between the printer and the computer.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(I'm assuming the power is connected and the lights lit up without any blinking. The printer didn't come with the data cables so if you were re-using one, it could have been damaged. A cable of 6' or less in length is recommended; communication issues are more likely with a longer cable.)

PROBLEM COPYING WITH MY ALL- IN- ONE


This message is inbuilt into most Canon printers, there is spongy thing in the printer which when fills up fires the message (it's mostly a counter in the printer, which can be reset more later...), per Canon this can only be dealt with in a lab but some of the more adventurous have tried cleaning it by themselves. Note that in a lab they won't clean it, it's a part that needs replacing and it might cost around $60. In most Canon printers there is a reset procedure that can reset the error and allow you to print some more before handling it again. Following are the reset procedures for some of the Printers: (not that F60 isn't listed here) Canon GENERIC "S" SERIES RESET CODE Waste Ink Counter Reset. (1) Turn off the printer. (2) Press and hold the RESUME button, then press and hold the POWER button. (3) Release the RESUME button, Next press and release the RESUME button two(2) more times in succession. Note: you are still holding the POWER button). The printer's carriage will "reset" or move momentarily. If the above was properly performed the printer will enter the "Service Mode". (4) Press the RESUME button 4 times, this will select the clear waste ink counter function. The lamp will alternate (change) color with each key press. 1. Service/Factory test printout, including ink sensor check. 2. EEPROM - Info printout. 3. EEPROM - Initialization. 4. Reset the Waste ink counter. 5. Printer model setting. (More selections beyond this point - However it is best leave them unaltered - You have been warned!)
