    this light blinking is an indicator of a cartridge problem either there is a stuck or loose cradle, open the printer and check and clean your cartridges with denatured alcohol don't use rubbing alcohol in that it contains 75% water and this can damage the contacts. make sure you clean the contacts in the cradle also if this does not work power down the printer for two minutes and re start it. Let me know what happens..Take care ..Mark

Canon S300 printer. 7 orange blinks, 1 green. I


According to the manual found here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=330&modelid=6609

7 orange lights represents a bad print head, and the printer will need serviced or replacement. Since printers are so cheap lately, I would just go shopping. Hope this helps! Thanks!

Do I need a new print head?


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 ...

Canon S9000, S300, S400, i550, i560, i850, i860, i865, i9100, i9950, PIXMA iP3000 above,
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.

My Canon S300 printer is flashing green, then 8 oranges flashes (waste tank almost full). What exactly do I have to do to resolve the problem?


This procedure will print out information about the EPROM:

2 EEPROM information printing
a) While the printer is powered off, hold down the RESUME button, then press the POWER button.
b) When the POWER LED lights up, hold down the POWER button, and press the RESUME button twice.
c) Release both the POWER and RESUME buttons, and the service mode is entered.

<< Note: the printer will cycle through and then the power light will stay on steady>>

d) Press the RESUME button twice.
e) Press the POWER button.
==>EEPROM information printing pattern will be printed.

If a report is printed, then you know you have done the steps correctly. The top line of the report will look like this:

S300 P=V 1.00 Destination=000.0 D=095.5 Page=05716 CH=0000 BK=(000) C=(-01)

The number after "D=" is the waste tank counter. To reset this to zero, repeat the steps above except for step d) you will press the RESUME button four times. (Also, you may have to press the POWER button in step e) twice).

Repeat the steps to print the information and the counter number should be zero. Mine changed from the above line to this:

S300 P=V 1.00 Destination=000.0 D=000.0 Page=05717 CH=0001 BK=(000) C=(-01)

HELP!


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
