Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

My Canon i956 printer has decided to die - I think. I get ' Operator Error ' and the Orange indicator blinks 5 times. I think this means a deficient ' cam sensor '- whatever that is. Is this the end ? - I have over £40 worth of Canon original ink cartridges in the cupboard !! mirecourt

    Thanks for the info. I cleaned the printhead but no change. Still getting 5 amber blinks. So looks as if it is a service issue - which is not likel to be worth it. Better to buy a replacement.

    Best Regards

    Did as you suggested but the problem persists. I think its 3 amber flashes for the print head but it was worth a try

    many thanks

The problem is related to the printhead. Try to remove the printhead and clean and reinstall.

Dear Bruce,
Blinking in orange 5 times indicates that the print head of your printer is faulty. To ensure this you can compare by using another print head. But first,please remove the print head and check whether it is burnt. Some short circuitry may cause the problem. Thanks.

Canon 1560 error - orange light blinking 5 times


It's mean "Print head not installed/Defective print head".First open cover and remove the ink cartridges.Then open holder and remove the print head.Clean the contacts on printer and print head using piece of cotton and some alcohol.Then put back all again.If the problem persist you need to replace the print head.It's part number now is QY6-0064, because the old QY6-0042 is discontinued.
