    My alarm is flashing as well. In the manual, it tells you the problem by the number of flashes. Mine flashes 10 times. There is no description for the problem if it flashes 10 times. Number of flashes on troubleshooting page goes from 2 to 11 skipping ten. I keep getting a printer offline message even though my printer is plugged in and the usb port is hooked up correctly.

    My error code was 5110, showing on the printer status panel in Windows XP. Also got 10 amber flashes. Note this happened after power outage; suspect power surge fried a chip?

How old is your printer? Maybe a part in your printer has reached its service life and has to be replaced. Please indicate error messages if there are any.

    MY ALARM ON MY MP210 IS ON AN MY COLOR INK FLASHES WHAT DO I DO


    Hi there,
    Check the status of each cartride by using the ink lamp.
    You have 3 lamps
    (A) Alarm lamp
    (B) Black ink lamp
    (C) Color ink lamp
    Make sure that the LED is on standby mode.
    a) If the ink lamp lights.
    Cause : Ink is low.
    Action :You can continue printing for a while, but we recommend you have a new FINE cartridge available.

    b) The Alarm Lamp lights and the ink lamp flashes .
    * If "E, 1, 3 " is displayed on the LED, ink has run out.
    Cause : Ink level cannot be detected.
    Action : Ink may have run out.
    The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the ink level cannot be correctly detected.
    If you want to continue printing without this function, press Stop/Resset buttonfor atleast 5 seconds.
    Canon recommends to use new genuine Canon cartridges in order to obtain optimum qualities.

    * If E,1, 6" is displayed on the LED,
    Cause : Ink has run out.
    Action. Rreplace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).
    If printing is in progress, you want to continue printing, press the Stop/Reset button for atleast 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.
    The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.
    Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing. The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.

    c) Only the ink lamp flashes
    Cause : The function for detecting the remaining in level is disabled.

    Hope this helps.
    Please rate my response.
    Thanks
    Have a good day.

    Have a canon mp 240 keeps flasing P and 3 and the alarm light and on button are also flashing......what the it wont scan it wont print does any one know what this means


    When the Power and Alarm lamps flash alternately, and P and number (error code) are alternately displayed on the LED, an error requiring servicing might have occurred.

    Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. Plug the power cord of the machine back in, and then turn on the machine. If the problem is not resolved, contact your Canon service representative.

    Ip4000 printer prints but with horizontal lines


    Cannon recommend a cleaning process called deep head cleaning

    1. Open the Printers folder.

      - For Windows XP select 'Start', 'Control Panel', 'Printers and Other Hardware', and 'Printers and Faxes'.
      - For Windows versions other than Windows XP select 'Start', 'Settings', and 'Printers'.

    2. Right-click the printer icon and select 'Properties'.

    3. Click the Maintenance tab, and then click the 'Deep Cleaning' icon.

    4. Select the ink tank color(s) for deep cleaning ('All Colors', 'Black', or 'Color').

      win_maint_deep_clean2.jpg


    5. Confirm the message, and then click the 'Execute' button.

    6. The Power lamp will blink and print head deep cleaning will start. Deep cleaning completes when the Power lamp stops blinking and lights. (It will take about a minute for the Power lamp to stop blinking and light solid.)

    7. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern by holding down the <Resume> on the printer until the Power light flashes twice to determine if further cleaning is necessary. Up to three deep cleanings may be necessary to determine if the print head is working properly

    Canon i9950


    Yes, the flashing light on start-up is actually the Waste Ink pad is full
    a Canon tech suggests that the job is very difficult (unfortunately even for them)
    HOWEVER....
    good news is that you can override it for awhile...
    • turn off power
    • press & hold RESUME button, then press POWER button
    • continue to hold POWER then release RESUME button
    • Press RESUME Button 2x quick
    • Release both RESUME and POWER
    • Green light will now blink, then stop
    • With Green light on....press RESUME 4x
    • Push Power button to turn printer off
    this should resolve the issue
    remember to rate the solutions...anything less than FIXYA actually lowers my rank...I didn't make the system...just wanting everyone to understand the impact of their vote....so if you need further help...just ask....hope it fixya'd...if it did then rate please!
