Canon ip100 portable printer ink cradle stuck on right hand side


I had this same problem. Count the number of blinks in sequence of the error light. it will flash green and yellow, and then just straight yellow for a number of flashes, then it will flash green again and the same number of yellow flashes again. Here is the diagnostic guide.

Two flashes: Printer is out of paper. Paper does not feed

Three flashes: Paper jam

Four Flashes: The Print Head Lock Lever is not locked properly / Ink tank is not installed properly. / Ink may have run out

Five flashes: Print Head is not installed./ Print Head is defective

Eight flashes: Ink absorber is almost full

Nine flashes:No response from connected digital camera or video camcorder/Connected digital camera or video camcorder is not compatible with this printer./PictBridge compliant devices are attached to both Direct Print Port and Bluetooth Unit Connector

Eleven flashes: Automatic Print Head Alignment failed

Twelve Flashes: Low battery level

Fifteen Flashes: Ink tank cannot be recognized

Seventeen Flashes: Ink has run out

Eighteen Flashes: Printer detected ink out condition

Nineteen Flashes: A USB hub is connected

Mine had 10 Flashes and the Print Carriage, was bad. Cost almost as much as another printer so thats what I did. I did take it apart and got it unstuck, but still didn't work.

Epson Stylus PHOTO R220 red lights keep flashing


I hope this will help you :)
* Green Power light flashes- The printer is receiving a print job, replacing an ink cartridge, charging ink, or cleaning the print head.
* RED paper light is On- If the CD/DVD try guide is open, close the CD/DVD tray guide, load paper, then press the paper button. Your paper ran out or multiple sheets loaded at the same time . Load paper and press the paper butoon to resume printing.
* RED paper light flashes- Paper is jammed in the printer. Press the paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the light is still flashing , open the cover and remove all paper, including any jammed or torn pieces. Then reload paper and press the paper button to continue printing.
* RED Ink Light Flashes - One or more cartridges are low on ink. Check the message that appears on your screen to determine which cartridge is low, or follow the instructions in " Checking the Ink Supply". Make sure you have a replacement cartridge.
* RED Ink Light is ON- One or more cartridges are out of ink or not installed. If you have just installed a new cartridge, it may be incomaptible with the printer or incorrectly installed. Reinstall it or replace it with the correct cartridge
* RED Ink and RED paper lights flash alternately- The CD/DVD tray guide was left open when you turned on the printer or when printing on paper. Just simply close it/
* Green Power Light is Off; RED paperand RED Ink Lights flashing- Paper may be blocking movement of the print head. Turn off the printer, then open the cover and remove any jammed paper or other foreign objects. Turn the printer back on again. Or it may have an internal error. Turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, then turn it on again.

When i turn the printer on the ink light and paper light are flashing back and fore and nothing works


You should check your cartridges. If one of them is empty, usually the printer won't print. Your cartridges have chips on them, and that chip determines how much you are going to print. Usually, when both lights are flashing, and nothing works, it has something to do with the cartridges.
If that is not the case though, please leave me a comment, as I would love to help!

Yellow light flashing


You did not mention which printer or inks you had but if you unplug the printer for 20 seconds should reset. Make sure the plastic film was removed from the ink when you installed

I have brought a replacement cartridge (black) for the Epson D92 stylus printer I folowed the usuel steps and sucsesfully printed 4 or 5 b&w pages now the printer does not seem to except the cartridge...


This may or may not work on your model

"Press and hold the paper feed, paper switch and the power switch.

Once the power light and paper light flashes twice and the other lights are flashing release the paper feed and paper switch "and then press the paper feed switch".

The power, paper and ink lights will flash twice. At this point the protection counter has been reset."

The Protection Counter referred to above prevents you from printing once the printed pages counter reaches a predetermined threshold.

If this doesn't work, let me know.

Based on the lights you are already out of one or more ink cartridge or an ink cartridge is not being recognized/expended.

-You cannot print if any ink cartridge is expended.
-Leave the empty cartridge installed in the printer until you have obtained a replacement.

Once you start the ink cartridge replacement procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session.

1. Open the printer cover and press the INK REPLACEMENT button, located under the printer's cover. The print head moves to the center and the lights flash.

2. Lift up the ink cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from its holder.

3. Remove the cartridge and dispose of it carefully. If ink gets on your hands, wash them with soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.

4. Unpack the new ink cartridge and remove the yellow tape. You must remove the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge. Do not remove the clear seal underneath the cartridge. Do not touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, or you may inhibit normal operation and printing.

5. Tilt the new cartridge toward you slightly as you insert it. Lower the cartridge so that the tabs rest on the hooks. Do not place the cartridge tabs under the hooks.
.
6. Press down firmly on the ink cartridge clamp until it snaps in place.

7. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat steps 2 through 6 before continuing with step 8.

8. Press the INK REPLACEMENT button and close the printer cover. The printer begins charging the ink delivery system.

9. Wait until ink charging is finished (the power light stops flashing and the red error light goes out).

Brand new Printer lights flashing


You should install driver first, then connect printer when prompted, then install inks, as it needs the driver to tell it there are full inks fitted, refer to the manual.
