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

I refilled the ink cartridges on my Canon iP1700. The print screen says they are low on ink and the orange light blinks four times. I unpluged the printer as directed in my manual. ??? The orange light...


The refilled ink cartridges do not have the chip which comes charged from the company. It is suggestable if you can spend on the new ink cartridges, do it. or else you can buy from the market compatible ink cartridges which comes with pre charged chip on the cartridge. this chip when comes in contact to the printer carriage assembly where the circuit is located. the printer works fine without any errors

Inserted new cartridges..orange light still on


Try re-seating the ink cartridges. A lot of times, the electrical contacts on HP's ink cartridges do not make a solid connection.

The orange lamp always lights


depending on how many times the orange light flashes. if 4 flashes then the ink has run out. if 5 flashes then it can not recognise the ink cartridge, if 7 flashes then the ink is not installed properly.

Changing ink cartridges


hi! there might be two possibilities...
1) the device drivers you have installed is corrupt.. try uninstalling n then installing the drivers
2) if that is not working out then your printer must be having some problem.. you may have to get it serviced.
