    The problem came up after I had the catridges re-filled. Cleaned printer, took the catridges in and out - no change, the power light keeps blinking.
    I would appreciate any solution to this.

Don't have a solution...only a problem. I compose a document with "Word" on my Mac OS X 10.4.11 and hit print, but my HP Deskjet 5150 spits out a  blank (on preview the document is also blank). Where do I go from here (on occasion, it does print out download material).

Hi taximom, Is the light alternating back and forth between green and orange (GR OR GR OR GR OR GR)? Or is there a pattern like (GR OR OR OR GR OR OR OR GR) or (GR OR OR OR OR OR OR OR OR GR OR OR OR OR OR OR OR OR GR) If it the first case (alternate back and forth) then I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it needs service. (and it's probably not worth fixing) If there is a pattern to the blinking let me know exactly how many times it goes orange and I can tell you what to do from there. The Dude

hi, the blinking is caused by a fault in the printer, means it needs to be serviced, its usually more expensive for them to fix it than buying a new one, but you can get there number off the canon website.

Happy New Year

    The blinking orange WiFi light indicates that the printer is trying to connect to a network or is not connected at all. Try to print the network settings on the printer. Press Setup -> Network Setup -> Print Setup Page. The printer will then print the network settings. Check if your printer is still connected to your wireless network. If not, you may need to reset the printer's wireless network settings (How to Restore the Network Settings on the X4650 AIO to the Original Factory Defaults) and reconfigure it.

    I have error light on. Computer won't print. I just bought the printer and it printed just fine twice. Then I turned off the power when I did not use it. When I tried to print again. the error light is...

    The error light that is blinking is actually blinking out a error code. In the back of your manual under troubleshooting there should be a list.

    On a printer this new about the only error you should see is a paper jam. IF anything else is wrong I'd just put it in the box and take it back. Rarely do you see something fail this new these days. It happens but not that much.

    Once you look up the error code you will know what the problem is. It could be a cable unplugged or a paper jam etc. I can;t see it being serious.

    I send a document from WORD (ms vista) and nothing happens. Printer window shows a document to print.. but nothing ever prints. No lights blink as usual, nothing. restarted computer, still nothing.

    Vista has most drivers, and certainly supports your printer.
    Try this routine.
    First turn on your computer.
    Now, turn on printer, and connect the USB.
    Vista will recognize it.
    i) Go to printers and faxes and set your printer as default, because there are other software like One note which could be default.
    OR ii) Go to your word document, ctrl+P for print settings, choose your printer from the drop down menu

    Printerndoes not respond

    I thought my printer died on me, but it turned out it was a simple paper jam. The whole printer just locked up because of a paper jam! All I had to do was open the top compartment, remove the toner and get rid of the paper jam
