Question about Canon BubbleJet i70 InkJet Photo Printer

Open Question

When turned on my Canon i70 print head moves from its position to the left, then back to the right, and then about an inch or two back left. At that point it stops and the printer gives off a loud buzzing noise. Then the power light blinks green, then four yellow, then green again.

The yellow blinking light is not reported in the code errors, take a look to service manual http://rapidshare.com/files/91114670/Canon_i550_i850_i950_Service_Manual.pdf.html
(hard to find but I did it ! )

I had the same problem and I solve it sending the clean head command from the settings of the printer driver (win XP)
I also reset the printer as it is explained in the service manual.

SOURCE: canon mp-730 print head does not move

it seems you open or unscrew the printer.
this may happen if the mother board has no nigative pole.
you have to reset the mother borad.
cannot do that from the available options
the reseting procedure is to take the motherboard out and you have to shortcut the battary for 10 seconds.
re install it , and try it

I have similar problem. I found this solution that may help you. My problem insists tho.

>>> 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 ...
Canon S9000, S300, S400, i550, i560, i850, i860, i865, i9100, i9950, PIXMA iP3000 above,
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.

The print head is not designed to be moved manually and damage may occur if you try to do so forcefully.
To center the print head to replace ink tanks and to replace/remove print head you should do the following:
1. Make sure power is turned on and open the Paper Output Tray gently. 2. Lift the scanning unit (cover) until it stops. Lift with document cover closed. The print head holder should move to the replacement position (center).
Do not force print head holder to move nor touch it while it's moving. These parts are very delicate and generally are made mostly of plastic.
IMPORTANT If the Scanning Unit (Cover) is left open for more than 10 minutes, the Print Head Holder moves to the right. In this case, close and reopen the Scanning Unit (Cover).

press and hold the power button until it stops flashing - the printer is simply trying to tell you that there was an issue (out of ink, out of paper, or paper jam) and is trying to resume normal activity.

Canon i70 bubble jet printer : print head is stuck all the way to the right, will not center, green/amber light alternating continually. Help ?!


You Canon printer seems to have RETIRED when it does that. It is a common canon prblem and that is why the smaller canon printers are referred to as DISPOSABLE printers. The motherboard of the printer has got a problem on it and would cost more that the price of a new printer to have fixed.

Print Head


After opening the purple cover, the printer head will move to the center. There should be a gray tab on the left side of the forward facing opening (about the middle of lower cartridge). Gently push printer head to the right (1/4 to 1/2 inch) and a gray slanted tab will appear from behind housing. lift this tab and a metal lock will pop up. Tilt lock back and the printer head should be lying loose in its cradle.

THERE IS A CODE THAT UNLOCKS THE HEAD. IT MAY BE THE SAME AS THE I80 PRINTER. DO NOT FORCE HEAD. THE CODE IS PUNCHED IN BY THE FEED BUTTON AT THE TOP. I WILL TRY TO FIND THE CODE AND REPOST.
