Question about Canon PIXMA iP5000 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Ip5000 printer worked perfectly but now comes up with three orange lights stating a paper jam. There is no jam. Shop says it is a timing problem but suggested a new printer. Paper roller keeps rolling after the paper has fed through and therefore the printer picks up that there is a paper jam. Is this fixable?

Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken .
Hope this will help or else you mother board has errrors.

The orange light flashes three times and it cant print and there's no paper jam


Did you remember to open the door for the paper to exit? Otherwise, if there's no paper jam check the paper path for debris; the sensor(s) might be gunked up.

Had paper jam. Now PIXMA IP5000 shows service error 6A00 and light alternates between green and orange 12 times. Have tried unplugging, turning off,etc.


Print head might be stuck. Try opening the lid and sliding the cartridge tray over to the left. Check to make sure there is no piece of paper left jamming it. While you are at it, clean the base pad by dabbing with a piece of paper towel to remove excess ink. You may also want to remove the Print head itself and then reattach. Make sure there is no gunk buildup. Hope this helps.

I have a flashing orange light, flashing three times then the power light(green)blinks once, before the three flashes of orange again. I know this indicates a paper jam, but there is no jam. How do I...


You can't reset except by removing paper scraps. Try using an index card and gently push it backwards thru the rollers where the paper comes out to be printed. There are gears on the left side you can rotate to push the card to remove scraps.

"Paper Output Slot Jammed" Canon Pixma iP4300


These printers are FULL of very sensitive sensors, and chances are that one of them may have a small piece of paper blocking them. If you can get the covers off by finding the "Triangle" arrow markers, you can inspect all these sensors.

Good luck!!!

Canon ip1300. Three orange flashes, one green.


Hi emdos,
Did you mean blinking three times in Orange?. Well, the problem is paper jam error occurs in your printer. First, check if any broken paper inside printer. If it so, remove broken paper. If problem still persist, it seems that drive assy broken or paper feed sensor fault. Find more useful article about this below.

Orange lights (3)


Three orange flashes between green indicates a paper jam on this model. Look closely in the paper feed area and the paper exit area for any torn scraps of paper. Also open the top and check in the platen area (where the print head moves back and forth). If you don't see anything, it's possible that a sensor has broken or gone bad.
