SOURCE: my printer has a new ink cartridge but does not recognize the ink

The orange flashing light indicates that you need to replace the ink cartridge thus its is not recognizing the cartridge you bought.Epson recommends the use of genuine Epson ink cartridges. The use of non-genuine ink may cause damage that is not covered by Epson's warranties, and under certain circumstances, may cause erratic printer behavior. Epson cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-genuine ink. The ink cartridge status may not be displayed when non-genuine ink is used. Having said this, these are the correct part number for your printer.

C90
Black T0731/T0911
Cyan T0732/T0912
Magenta T0733/T0913
Yellow T0734/T0914
In replacing the cartridge make sure you also remove the yellow tape before inserting it. When you finished replacing the cartridge and closed the cover, it will charge the ink automatically in about 2 minutes. The only way to check the new cartridge you have inserted is to use the software in checking the ink levels. Accessing the software depends on the OS that you use.

SOURCE: Canon ip1980 after refill, status monitor still shows ink at low

This is a common problem with compatible cartridges where the chip on the cartridge is faulty, missing or is not making contact correctly with the printer cartridge connectors. The first thing to do is make sure that the plastic seal has been removed from the chip and that it is free of any residual adhesive etc. You can clean this with a cotton bud soaked in isopropyl alcohol or VCR tape head cleaner. DO NOT USE SURGICAL SPIRIT or any other cleanser as this will either leave a residue itself or damage the plastics and rubbers in the printer.

Once cleaned reinsert the cartridge and try again. If this is still unsuccessful the best solution is to return the cartridges to the vendor where you bought them and get another brand of cartridges or use genuine original cartridges. When you find a reliable manufacturer of cartridges, stay with them. Don’t forget to clean the print head and realign & recalibrate the printer at every cartridge change for optimum results. Also make sure that you use high quality paper for the best images results.

SOURCE: Canon S300 printer. 7 orange blinks, 1 green. I

According to the manual found here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=330&modelid=6609

7 orange lights represents a bad print head, and the printer will need serviced or replacement. Since printers are so cheap lately, I would just go shopping. Hope this helps! Thanks!

Yellow light blinks 7 times with 1 long green blink


Jennifer, According to an answer by kev1952 on 19 Sept, to my similar error condition ( "repeating sequence of 7 orange and 1 longer green flash of power LED" ) in a Canon i550 printer, and assuming that what you called yellow I called orange, then you too may have a printhead fault. kev1952 recommended to try to get it cleaned and checked at an ink refilling specialist service.

Blinking orange 5 times and 1 green


Try this:
Most of the time when a printer used for a certain period the ink would dry out and caused an error message. What you do is to replace with a new inks pad inside the printer and reset that error message. Once it is done, your printer will work again!

For Printer Model: Canon S9000, S300, S400, i550, i560, i850, i860, i865, i9100, i9950, PIXMA iP3000:

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.
