Question about Canon PIXMA MP810 All-In-One InkJet Printer
On and ink out lights flicker
If the error code is actually 5100, this is how you fix it:
Open the paper output tray.
Lift the scanning unit (printer cover) completely. (The print head will move to the replacement position.)
Open the inner cover.
a. Do not try to manually move or stop the Print Head Holder.
b. Do not touch any metal parts.
Press down on the ink tank until a click is heard, thereby making sure the ink tank is seated properly.
Make sure that the ink tank is inserted in the slot that corresponds to the ink tank's color.
Ensure that all the ink tanks are installed properly and the ink tank lamps light red
Ink Tank Lamp
You can check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.
- On: The printer is ready to print.
- Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.
- Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.
- Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.
Close the inner cover and the scanning unit (printer cover).
When closing the scanning unit (printer cover), be careful not to jam your finger.
When starting printing next time, the print head cleaning launches automatically.
If you haven't installed ink recently -- then you are out of ink and that is why you ink out light is flickering.
Hope this helps.
