Hi! I've got same problem. Canon userguide says that 5 flashes means the print head is not installed/not properly installed, or it is defective.Not yet sorted problem out - new print-heads are expensive!

My iP4200 will not print anything after i change the cartridge and no error or falshing lights were found


This is a common problem and can usually be solved by doing the following:

1.) Remove the cartridge from the printer and ensure that the clear sticker placed over the contacts of the cartridge has been removed.
2.) Clean the contacts of the ink cartridge with tissue paper. Surgical alcohol may be used as a solvent.
3.) Use the software that came with your printer to clean the ink heads. The ink cartridges need to be installed in the printer. You may need to Deep clean the ink heads several times. Around 3-5 times seems to be the magic number.

Tell me how it goes!

Take care!

Canon Pixma yellow color problem


Either the ink you are using is not going to give the color you want, or you have print heads that are blocked.

Canon iP4200 thinks it has two yellow ink catridges installed


I have had this happen a couple of times to me with a few cartridges so if you can be sure it's just the black that has changed then I'd contact your retailer and request a replacement under warranty.

The only other way to solve this is by process of elimination using some other cartridges. If you know of someone else with a similar printer model that uses the same cartridges then perhaps ask nicely :)
