Reset. Orange light blinks several times. Then Green. Then orange several times, then... on and on. Cannot reset. All ink cartridges have ink.


count the number of orange flashes in between the green light. two flashes = out of paper, 3=paper jam, 4=empty ink tank, 6=print head not installed, 7=print head defective, 8=waste ink tank is almost full

Canon i850 light is green then flashes orange 7 times then goes green and repeats orange flashing. Printer never gets ready


This is a very bad error. It means that the printhead needs servicing and may need to be repaired. There is no easy fix. Sorry.

1 green light - 7 orange lights on Canon i850


7 orange flashes means the ink absorber is full, you can't reset that without having Canon diagnostic tools. The repair usually runs around $100.00

Canon i850 not printing


7 times means your waste ink absorber is full, time to let a shop replace the absorbers and reset the counter to clear the error.

Will not print


Remove and re-seat the print head. If need be the print head can be cleaned with hot water. YMMV but I've submerged my i850 print head for minutes at a time. Dry it off, blow it out, and it goes right back to work. Common problem if you're using non-Canon inks.

I had the same problm the printer made loud noises, the head did not move and the light flashed orange. At the right most position where the print head rests there is a gear, gunk had the gear jammed I cleaned it with a paper towel lots of black ink came out, it is working fine for a couple of days now.
