Question about Canon PIXMA iP4300 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Canon iP4300 is noting "offline or no power" blinking orange light 3 times then turns off

The cable seems fine, but all of a sudden the printer won't work and I get a note stating "offline or cable disconnected from computer". I've tried using different cable or switching adapter in computer but still won't connect. I press power button and printer turns on for maybe 30 seconds, blinks orange light a few times then shuts down again.

What is the reason for orange light flashing 16 times on ip4300?


Hi

No need to worry, 16 times blink simply means that you're out of ink for one or more of the cartridges.
Replace and you should be fine.

When i switch on the canon ip4300 printer orange light flashing 5 times


5 flashes indicates a faulty printhead or possibly a problem with the p/head contacts. Try removing the head which is easier if you take the cartridges out first(no tools required) and re-seat it having checked the contacts for dirt.

If that doesn't work it may be that the waste ink tank is full. Try this ...


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.

That is a "general" error.
Please note that the power LED is flashing you a message (blinking green and / or orange).

"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!!!
