Question about Canon S 750 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Can't print Green and orange light flash alternately. Have unplugged, checked drivers. Is the printer just worn out. It is 7 years old. The last few times it printed it made very loud noises and has red stripes running through the printed sheets.

    How many times does it flash orange before flashing green? Or does it just alternate with no specific sequence of numbers?

    The sequence may indicate something like a print head problem or a larger service problem.

It flashes orange for a few seconds, and then back to green, and then back to orange every few seconds. I can't shut it off unless I unplug it. It also makes a horrible racket.

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 i350 printer won't print; alternates flashing green/orange.


    Sounds like the printer head is clogged or damaged.

    I believe that sequence stands for (error sending data to print head). Not sure if it can be repaired or not, its hit or miss with the canon printers.

    The ip series, the heads were removable and the whole section could be replaced. Give canon a call and see if thats possible with the i350 series. Worse case you will have to replace the whole printer.

    Hope this helps.

    The printer flashes orange light five times, and green once


    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 (exit service for i960)
    1 press - orange light - EEPROM info print
    2 presses - green light - EEPROM initialise
    3 presses - orange light - reset waste ink counter.

    This also applies to the i550, i560, i950, i960

    Not printing from one computer


    If the CHARGE/ERROR light is remain on orange with beep 1 times, it mean the paper is not properly set in the feed slot, just remove the paper and reload it properly.
    If the POWER light is flashing green, that mean your print job is not finish yet.

    BJC55 Printer not printing


    There are some possibilities due to the above phenomena. Let's discuss about it:
    1) If the POWER light is flashing green, then your printer is now warming up or performing maintenance procedure (replacing cartridge/tank) or cleaning print head, just wait a few seconds till the light stop flash. Also if the last page of a print job not done, this POWER light flashing green.
    2) If the CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, it mean your cartridge need to be install (especially the 1st time turn on printer) or cartridge being replaced, just install the cartridge and press RESUME to continue.
    3) If both POWER light is flashing green and CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, then your printer may facing a very serious error and maybe need a replacement.

    Hope these help.
