Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

My printer is Canon ip4000 and it used to be okay until lately. There will be 5 flashes of orange light and then green light. I checked on the internet and it says that the ink head has problem. Each time I want to print something I have to replace the ink head. I think the ink head might be loose or get displaced during transportation. Please help.

Remove the cartridge and clean the head as well as the printer head with cotton&alcohol to remove dirt. Insert it again and have a long press on the resume button... Have a test print...

I have a Canon Pixma IP 4000 and keep getting the error message that the ink absorber is nearly full. Print quality is not good even after cleaning. What should I do?

1. With the printer plugged in and powered off, press and hold the Resume/Cancel button, then press and hold the Power button. (DO NOT release the buttons. The LED light should be green to indicate that a function is selectable.).
2. While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power button.).
3. While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in orange and green, starting with orange.).
4. When the LED light is green, press the Resume/Cancel button 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in orange and green, starting with orange.).
5. Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the reset is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.).
6. Press the power button to exit service mode.
Note: if you accidentally press the Resume/Cancel button more than 4 times in step 4 then just press the Resume/Cancel button at least 10 times and the printer will be returned to step 4 automatically

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

Pixma ip4000 5 blinks error


http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=257&modelid=10239

If you type in 'flashing power light' in the problem box, for 5 you get print head failure, often it means the connectors between cartridge and print carriage are dirty, can be cleaned with a pencil eraser and a soft cloth. there is a sequence of checks and repairs to follow on the canon service page

Ip4000 5 flashing orange lights


5 orange flashes indicates a problem with the print head. you could try carefully removing the print head (the thing holding the print cartridges) and replacing it. turning it off/on. make sure the print cartidges are ok. If still no good you might need to get it serviced?
