Five flashes: Print head not installed / Print head not installed correctly / Defective print head
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.
For the i9950 ONLY: When the CD-R tray is set in the printer, remove the CD-R tray and set the paper output tray to the paper print position, then install the print head.
After reinstalling the print head, you may need to realign it.
If this error still remains, the print head may be damaged

I am refilling the black ink of my canon printer using continuous ink container but the black color doesn't flow into the end of the hose and it didn't print at all, please help


  • Check the printer's power/alarm light. If it is flashing orange, count the number of flashes. Look up the flash code in your printer's user manual to diagnose the problem.
  • 2 Remove and reinstall the ink cartridges if the power/alarm light flashes 5, 7 or 15 times consecutively. This indicates that the issue is a cartridge error, an incorrectly installed cartridge, or an unrecognized cartridge. These errors can be fixed by reinstalling the ink cartridges. Make sure that you are using the correct ink cartridges for your Canon printer.

  • Turn on the printer and open the front cover. The ink cartridge holder should move to the replacement position.
  • 4 Verify that the colored ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the right and the black ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the left. Swap the cartridges and reinstall them in the correct slots if necessary.
  • 5 Check to see that both ink cartridges are level with one other and parallel to the top of the ink cartridge holder. If either cartridge is wedged at an angle, gently apply pressure to the cartridge until it clicks into the correct position.
  • 6 Close the front cover of your Canon printer and wait while the printer initializes the newly installed cartridges. This can take a minute or two.

    The color ink cartridge that is " blinking " is


    Don't buy Canon as they absolutely ROB you for the ink!! They are worse than ****** dealers! At least HP allows you to use non (rip-off) OEM cartridges without all the hassle! My printer will be thrown out after the ink runs out as I will not be ripped-off by Canon again!

    7 orange flashes and then one green..what does that mean?


    7 orange flashes of the alarm lamp means that FINE cartridge is not installed in the correct position. Confirm that the FINE Cartridges are installed in the appropriate positions.

    MY ALARM ON MY MP210 IS ON AN MY COLOR INK FLASHES WHAT DO I DO


    Hi there,
    Check the status of each cartride by using the ink lamp.
    You have 3 lamps
    (A) Alarm lamp
    (B) Black ink lamp
    (C) Color ink lamp
    Make sure that the LED is on standby mode.
    a) If the ink lamp lights.
    Cause : Ink is low.
    Action :You can continue printing for a while, but we recommend you have a new FINE cartridge available.

    b) The Alarm Lamp lights and the ink lamp flashes .
    * If "E, 1, 3 " is displayed on the LED, ink has run out.
    Cause : Ink level cannot be detected.
    Action : Ink may have run out.
    The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the ink level cannot be correctly detected.
    If you want to continue printing without this function, press Stop/Resset buttonfor atleast 5 seconds.
    Canon recommends to use new genuine Canon cartridges in order to obtain optimum qualities.

    * If E,1, 6" is displayed on the LED,
    Cause : Ink has run out.
    Action. Rreplace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).
    If printing is in progress, you want to continue printing, press the Stop/Reset button for atleast 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.
    The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.
    Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing. The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.

    c) Only the ink lamp flashes
    Cause : The function for detecting the remaining in level is disabled.

    Hope this helps.
    Please rate my response.
    Thanks
    Have a good day.

    In canon pixma ip1700 Alarm light orange flashes 15 times


    Fifteen Flashes: The FINE Cartridge cannot be recognized.
    Possible causes are as follows:
    - The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly.
    - The FINE Cartridge may not be compatible with this printer.
    Install the appropriate FINE Cartridge. If lines are misaligned or the resulting output is not satisfactory, carry out the Print Head Alignment.

    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.
