Make sure your ink cartridges are installed correctly. on older canon models they had a tendancy to not engage fully. Also make sure you have the latest printer drivers for your operating sytem installed (those drivers can be obtained from the manufacturer's website). Then attempt to print a test page. This model is fairly old, and i don't believe there's a windows Vista driver set available for it (unless it comes with vista) so if you're using vista that could be your problem.

Printer Keeps flashing green light

1 Answer

Please help, the Power light is blinking green rather that just solid and nothing will print. When I open the cartridge door the ink carriage is in the middle rather that to the right as it usually is....


Sounds like it is trying to tell you to change the ink cartridge as that is where the cartridge parks for changing? My printer blinks green when it needs paper, does yours have paper and is it inserted properly? Have you checked for a paper jam?

The clue will be in the manual's troubleshooting pages.

Modern printers have a chip on the cartridge itself and these can sometimes give wrong information to the printer..

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.

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

PROBLEM COPYING WITH MY ALL- IN- ONE


This message is inbuilt into most Canon printers, there is spongy thing in the printer which when fills up fires the message (it's mostly a counter in the printer, which can be reset more later...), per Canon this can only be dealt with in a lab but some of the more adventurous have tried cleaning it by themselves. Note that in a lab they won't clean it, it's a part that needs replacing and it might cost around $60. In most Canon printers there is a reset procedure that can reset the error and allow you to print some more before handling it again. Following are the reset procedures for some of the Printers: (not that F60 isn't listed here) Canon GENERIC "S" SERIES RESET CODE Waste Ink Counter Reset. (1) Turn off the printer. (2) Press and hold the RESUME button, then press and hold the POWER button. (3) Release the RESUME button, Next press and release the RESUME button two(2) more times in succession. Note: you are still holding the POWER button). The printer's carriage will "reset" or move momentarily. If the above was properly performed the printer will enter the "Service Mode". (4) Press the RESUME button 4 times, this will select the clear waste ink counter function. The lamp will alternate (change) color with each key press. 1. Service/Factory test printout, including ink sensor check. 2. EEPROM - Info printout. 3. EEPROM - Initialization. 4. Reset the Waste ink counter. 5. Printer model setting. (More selections beyond this point - However it is best leave them unaltered - You have been warned!) After selecting the desired mode (eg 4), press the POWER button to "set" the change, and return to the top of the function selection menu.
