Question about Canon i850 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Parts fell out of i850 canon printer

Original problem was the 7 orange blinking lights. I cleaned the print head and reset the lights. Didn't help. I cleaned the waste tanks and found three parts just sitting by the tanks. They are a metal clip with 2 holes, a plastic piece with 2 holes and a plastic guard with two holes. I am assuming they go back on the 2 pegs that are there, but not sure what order they go on there. Once I resolve that, I still have to fix the blinking light problem. Any help would be appreciated.

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

Canon i850 light is green then flashes orange 7 times then goes green and repeats orange flashing. Printer never gets ready


This is a very bad error. It means that the printhead needs servicing and may need to be repaired. There is no easy fix. Sorry.

I hava a i850 -- when I turn it on and it goes thru its set up then the amber light comes on blinks 7 times stops then blinks again 7 times -- cannot stop it -- also when I open it the print head stays in...


Hello.

From Canon:

Probably your waste ink counter. Should be cleaned or replaced before resetting but usually you can get away with resetting once.
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
1 press - orange light - EEPROM info print
2 presses - green light - EEPROM initialise
3 presses - orange light - reset waste ink counter.

Hope this helps.

I850 canon printer blinks yellow 7 times wont print ,did the waste reset still no good is this a print head failure


You don't want to do a waste reset, ink will overflow everywhere.. but waste ink full is what the 7 blinks means. Resetting the waste ink is like adjusting your gas gauge and not putting gas in, not a good idea...
