Canon i850 inkjet flashes green 1x, then orange 7x...what's the deal?


This sequence tells you that the ink absorbers are full. They will need replacing. This is a job well beyond the scope of the user as the chassis needs to removed and the old absorbers removed and the new modified absorbers fitted (part no now isQY5-0181-010)

Also the counter will need resetting to remove the message and that too must be done by a Canon repairer.

Srri but is probably the worst job to do on this model.

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.

Printing, but not full words Canon i850


Sounds more like the actual print head has become dried out and simply needs to be cleaned. This is a common problem with Canon Bubble and Ink Jet printers.

You should be able to remove the cartridge and then the print head shuttle that moves across the page. Once you have it removed, you will need to get a couple of Q-tip swabs and some DENATURED ALCOHOL, NOT RUBBING ALCOHOL as the water in rubbing alcohol will damage the printer head. Wipe the face of the printer head GENTLY with a moistened swab, you should see the dried ink dissolve, do this a few times until you see no further ink on the swabs.

Allow it to dry for a few minutes and then reinstall it into the printer. You will need to run the alignment function of the printer to ensure that the print is aligned properly. That should do it.

Cheers,

Keith

I have problems aligning printer heads on my Canon i850. I have clean the printer heads, replaced cartdridges, re-aligned them, but I still get lines through the printed material (phots mostly). No...


Please try to uninstall and reinstall your printer.

Clean your printer heads.

Perform a hard reset to your printer.

Print a test page.

Try using a different bond paper.

Make sure you are using original canon cartridge

If still you get an error. Replace your printer heads.

7 yellow flashes not printing


hi welcome to fixya!
I believe there is no print head failure happening. I experience that one time, it only needs a new ink cartridge. Be sure to replace the right color!
have a nice day!

Print head problems 7 yellow lights 1 green light, how do I fix


That's not a printhead problem, it's saying that the waste ink absorber is full. You need to have them replaced at a shop where they can also reset the waste ink counter.

Will not print


Remove and re-seat the print head. If need be the print head can be cleaned with hot water. YMMV but I've submerged my i850 print head for minutes at a time. Dry it off, blow it out, and it goes right back to work. Common problem if you're using non-Canon inks.
