When you plug your printer into the computer, what does the computer say?

Count how many flashes you are getting. Look in your owners manual to see what it says for that number of flashes.

SOURCE: Canon iP 5200 orange light flashing 5 times

Hi
IO have one of these printers as my daily workhorse. Thankfully I haven't had the problem you are having.
Did you remove the print-head from the printer and clean it with running warm water?
When I get a possible print-head problem I always do that, rinse it until the water runs clean. Then dry it on kitchen roll making sure that the contact on the back are completely dry before refitting it to the printer. Generally this has cleared any problems (I have several Canon printers - I'm not just referring to the 5200 now).
However If you still get the error it may be worth contacting your nearest Canon service centre. New print-heads are not exactly cheap but these printers are so good it's worth keeping it going. They will probably be able to diagnose the problem quickly and accurately and tell you if it is cost-effective to repair. I don't know what would be involved with the Eprom error. - probably a circuit board change inside the printer.

Printer fault


The Canon Pixma IP 4000 printer has a self-diagnosing print head error notification system. Generally the "Alarm/Power" light will flash and tell you what kind of problem you might be having with your print head.
You can also run tests yourself to identify problems.

Look at the "Alarm/Power" light and see how many times it's flashing.
If it flashes orange 11 times consecutively, that means there is a print head alignment issue. Perform deep cleaning, then move the printer away from any strong light sources.
To deep clean, click the Maintenance tab in the "Printers" folder.
Then click the "Deep Cleaning" icon. You can select all colors, black, or selected colors. Click on "Execute."
If it flashes orange five times consecutively, that means there is a print head error.
Reseat the print head, then reset the printer.
To reseat the print head, make sure the printer is on.
Open the paper output tray and top cover.
Make sure the print head holder is in the center and open the inner cover. remove all the ink tanks.
Raise the print head lock lever and remove the print head.
Reseat the print head and lock the lever.
Replace the ink tanks.


Check to see if the ink is ejecting normally from the print head nozzles by running a test.
Press and hold the "Resume/cancel" button.
When the Power lamp flashes twice, release the button.
Examine the printed output.
Use the references below to compare your output to what Canon suggest is correct.
If the output is incorrect, then perform deep cleaning, if necessary repeat twice.

Replace the ink tanks if you're unable to get a good result by following the previous steps. make sure the printer is on, lift the top cover.
The print head holder will move to the center.
Press on the tab to release the tank.
Unwrap a new tank.
Make sure you can see the air hole and insert the new tank until you hear a firm click.
Repeat for the other tanks if you suspect from your print test that they have failed.

I keep getting a service error B200, and the lights flash green and orange alternately. How can I fix this?


Try keeping the paper only in the bottom tray (there's a tray in the bottom) Try pulling any paper out of the top and just close that top tray. Open up the head so that u can see the ink cartridges and turn the printer on and off and maybe it will center itself again. If it's still not working (even if lights aren't red and print head wont align in the center) try manually moving the head back and forth like 18 times so you can lubricate that rail in the back that's holding it. After that, re-turn it off and on again.

Orange lights (3)


Three orange flashes between green indicates a paper jam on this model. Look closely in the paper feed area and the paper exit area for any torn scraps of paper. Also open the top and check in the platen area (where the print head moves back and forth). If you don't see anything, it's possible that a sensor has broken or gone bad.
