Cannon i865. Operator Error message and blinking orange light (5 blinks). Switching off power does not reset. Also used reset technique from this site, this does not seem to work. Any more ideas?

5 flashes indicates a faulty printhead or possibly a problem with the p/head contacts. Try removing the head which is easier if you take the cartridges out first(no tools required) and re-seat it having checked the contacts for dirt.

If that doesn't work it may be that the waste ink tank is full. Try this ...
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

HP Officejet Pro K550 - Printhead Error Message on new printhead - cleaned printhead, contacts... tried all fixes... what now? Is it faulty?

I have the same problem. I replaced both printhead cartidges. The MC light stopped blinking, but the KY light kept blinking. I thought it was a faulty new KY ink cartridge. So I returned that cartridge and got a new one. Still the same issue. I called hp and they said the print head is bad now and all they focused on was trying to sell me a new printer. UG! I also heard wiping off the printhead with a dry cloth may help. Did you get yours to wokr?

My kodak eps 7 is not printing clearly all the print are faded i installed new cartridges but it did not sole the problem

Make sure the cartridges are undamaged (no refills). Try cleaning the printhead (Menu > Maintenance (OK) > Clean Printhead (OK). When the On/Off light stops blinking and becomes steady, press OK. Print a demo page by pressing Menu and OK simultaneously.

A replacement printhead may be needed (contact Epson). Unfortunately, this may not help and the printer may need service. Once you install a printhead you will not be able to return it.

I hope this helps.

I have a ip3500 with full tanks that are genuine Canon yet i have a flashing amber light 5 blinks anybody know what i need to do to stop it and get printing again

In general, Canon use a 5 Orange light flashes sequence to signal a Print Head problem.

It may be as simple as adjust the alignment of the print head or removing and re seating the printhead.

You may also have a failure that will require a repair.

My old printer broke down-got a new one, have to install new printhead and take out the old one. followed instructions and the new one does not work, the color light comes on and blinks. i am starting...

Try to Unplug/replug the power cable., and also try to reseat the new Printhead and the ink cartridges., make sure also that your cartridges are full or Good.

Now if this issue did not solved and since your using a new parinthead Please call kodak for a printer replacement or repair Toll Free 1 800 235 6325.

Updating the firmware of the printer will not solve the issue since it has an error indication on your printer. Gudluck!

Flashing light "E" at installation.

That means that no Printhead is installed,

Remove your inks and printhead
restart the printer
reinstall the Printhead and ink cartridges

If you still see letter "E"
call Kodak Assistance for a free Printhead

LQ-2180 printer is Continues blinking front panel lights.

The LQ2180 blinking lights can be caused by paper jammed, printhead overheated, paper loaded not detected and cover unclosed. Try to check all this first, you may have a fragment of paper stick to the sensors, or broken sensor. If all of the light flashing try to check the carriage movement, move it side to side, but with power off condition. If the carriage movement not smooth or stuck, look for any foreign matters inside the carriage path that blocking the movement if not, try to lubricate the rail which hold the carriage. If this doesnt solve you, the machine require parts replacement.
