    I get five amber flashes. I have reinstalled the printhead and tried resetting the printer by disconnecting it for at least 10 min. Neither of these does any good. Although, I did manage to reset it once and it worked for a couple of print jobs and then began blinking again. I don't think there is anything wrong with the printer except it seems to want to cut out to this error message and then it won't function.

    Please is there ANY person who can help with this problem. Cancelling the printing and turning the printer off and back on does not help. What else can I do. Thanks. Louise

From iP3000 user manual:
Five flashes: Print Head not installed / Print Head not installed correctly / Print Head is defective
Install the Print Head. If the Print Head is already installed, remove the Print Head and check the electrical contacts for foreign matter, then reinstall.
After reinstalling the Print Head, you may need to realign it.
If this error still remains, the Print Head may be damaged. Contact a Canon service representative.

Operator error.
Press printer's RESUME button.
If this doesn't clear the error, cancel printing and turn the printer off and then back on.
When press Resume button, ip3000 not responed(not print)

Error message E 2 's flashing .. what should i do?


If the alarm light is solid amber E2 indicates a paper feed error.
This can usually be cleared easily.
If the Power light and Alarm light are flashing green and amber then the E2 indicates an error requiring Canon servicing might have incurred.. If after disconnection it reappears then it looks like a bin job as nobody on the internet appears to have any solution for this one and anything involving Canon would be as much as a new printer.

Flashing Amber Light


Hi again,
-not sure if you have resolved your issue, but in case you have not...this is a preliminary solution
-if you need more help...just post a comment..as this will automatically put it in my account to see * respond to

-anyway....this is an excellent high quality printer!
-the flashing amber light on the printer indicates that it is offline..ie. not ready to print
-to fix it...
-assuming that there is paper in it & that the cables are fully connected
-on the lower right...press the resume button once (within the 2 button right hand lower area)
-this should put it back online...and help you to print
-if you need further help...just ask

as well...remember to rank...but understand that anything other than a FIX-Ya..actually lowers my rank...so if the above doesn't help...just ask...
thanks

Canon i320 amber light flashing will not print


I believe that 7 amber flashes refer to a cartridge error. Check that the cartridge is seated correctly.

There is a red light flashing


From the OKI site, I found this information. My problem is a Flash 2 Blink, which is a problem with the cover or minor error, whatever that means. I can't figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Flash type Ready LED (Green) Manual feed LED (Amber) Error LED (Amber) Meaning Flash 1 -- slow blink X ecblank.gif ecblank.gif The printer is processing data when printing has been suspended. ecblank.gif ecblank.gif ecblank.gif X The image drum required changing or toner is low. Flash 2 -- blink X ecblank.gif ecblank.gif The printer is receiving and processing data during printing or the printer is resetting itself. ecblank.gif ecblank.gif X ecblank.gif The printer is requesting manual paper feed. ecblank.gif ecblank.gif ecblank.gif X There is a printing error, problem with paper or a cover open. ecblank.gif X X X There is a minor error with the printer. Flash 3 -- rapid blink X X X There is a major error with the printer.
