Question about Canon BJC S450 InkJet Printer
Flashes green once than 6 times orange. I've taken out my old ink and added new ones, then I cleaned the ink cartridges and it's still flashing 6 x orange then once green.
the "normal" reset may not solve the problem with SIX yellow flashes at canon s450, because this means that not "your waste-ink absorber wants to be changed", BUT: your print head carrier (this is the device which is sliding to an fro) is either damaged or : TOO OLD ! With Canon s450, the carrier has a built-in sort of timecounter, and after approximately 18 Months of usage or a bit later, the print carrier deactivates itself - up to now, I didnt' find a way of avtivating it again(service-mode is not possible), and canon helpdesk istself says: buy a new carrier (costs about 45,-EURO in Germany)..
