You guess seems to be right. The user manual says that 7 orange flashes is "Defective print head Contact a Canon service representative". So, the is not much more we will be able to suggest you on FixYa.com, unless there is a Canon technical rep who is also an Expert here!

Sometimes, all is not lost, they may have a special (undocumented) procedure they will ask you to try. Then, if it turns out that your printer is really dead, you may still be able to resell the ink in the classified ads or on eBay. Good luck!

Reset. Orange light blinks several times. Then Green. Then orange several times, then... on and on. Cannot reset. All ink cartridges have ink.


count the number of orange flashes in between the green light. two flashes = out of paper, 3=paper jam, 4=empty ink tank, 6=print head not installed, 7=print head defective, 8=waste ink tank is almost full

According to the manual found here:

7 orange lights represents a bad print head, and the printer will need serviced or replacement. Since printers are so cheap lately, I would just go shopping. Hope this helps! Thanks!

I70 wont print & Printer Head won't return to the centre


The first error was waste ink near full which you can bypass with resume button, now the absorber is full which means it won't print until you have the drain pack replaced and the counter reset by a shop.

Can not print from my Cannon i950. 'paper thikness lever position


A friend of mine had the same problem and turned out to be the print head. They can be pricey so a new printer would be in order probably. Could also be the waste ink counter as well. Here are some steps to see if you can get rid of the 7 orange blinks:

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.

If this doesn't work then you know its the print head for sure.

I have a cannon i9900, it has always worked perfectly. For the past week I can not print anything. I reinstalled software today still down, I see one green light followed by 5 yellow flashes (keeps...


Dear Bill,
Flashing 5 times in orange indicates that print head error occurs so it cannot be detected properly by the printer. To make it sure, install a good print head in the printer. Is the problem fixed?. If the problem still persist, carriage part may be faulty. Overall, the print head is the most faulty part in this case. So, you need to replace the print head with new one.
Regards,
