Hello.

From Canon:

Probably your waste ink counter. Should be cleaned or replaced before resetting but usually you can get away with resetting once.
1. Start with printer OFF
2. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
3. Release RESUME
4. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
5. let green light blink until printhead has finished moving.
6. Select functions below with RESUME, execute with POWER

0 presses - green light - Test Print
1 press - orange light - EEPROM info print
2 presses - green light - EEPROM initialise
3 presses - orange light - reset waste ink counter.

Hope this helps.

Canon S520 printer stopped printing has 7 orange lights before the green light on printer has an error code


Hi ...

light flashing 7 times means that there is an issue with printer head. Try and perform the below steps to reset the printer head whcih might resolve the problem. If this doen not, I would suggest you get your printer checked by a technician.

Reseat the print head
  1. Confirm that the printer is powered on.

  2. Check that the printer is powered on, and open the front cover. Wait until the print head moves to the center.

  3. Hold and slowly move the print head lock lever up and down several times.

  4. Lower the print head lock lever to secure the print head.

    Note: Holding the print head may cause it to not be seated properly. Perform this step using only the print head lock lever.

  5. Close the front cover.

Can not print from my Cannon i950. 'paper thikness lever position


A friend of mine had the same problem and turned out to be the print head. They can be pricey so a new printer would be in order probably. Could also be the waste ink counter as well. Here are some steps to see if you can get rid of the 7 orange blinks:

1. Start with printer OFF
2. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
3. Release RESUME
4. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
5. let green light blink until printhead has finished moving.
6. Select functions below with RESUME, execute with POWER

0 presses - green light - Test Print (exit service for i960)
1 press - orange light - EEPROM info print
2 presses - green light - EEPROM initialise
3 presses - orange light - reset waste ink counter.

If this doesn't work then you know its the print head for sure.

Hp lj 2500 flashing yellow light


The yellow-print-cartridge
light is blinking, and the
printer stops printing.
 The print cartridge is
empty or missing.
 The printer cannot
detect the print
cartridge correctly.
1. Reinsert or replace the print cartridge.
2. If the print-cartridge light is still blinking but the
Attention light is not on, turn the printer off and
then back on.
3. If the problem persists, repeat the above steps
with yellow print cartridges until the error is
resolved.
4. If the problem persists, replace the printcartridge
E-label reader, which is located on the
pressure assembly of the print-cartridge
carousel.

Canon i550 problem


The yellow blinking light is not reported in the code errors, take a look to service manual http://rapidshare.com/files/91114670/Canon_i550_i850_i950_Service_Manual.pdf.html
(hard to find but I did it ! )

I had the same problem and I solve it sending the clean head command from the settings of the printer driver (win XP)
I also reset the printer as it is explained in the service manual.
