SOURCE: incompatible print cartridges?

Hi,
just click on them to say ok, and accept the unsupported cartridges ( if applicable ) do you get the choice.
certain printers, have an option in printer prefs, to change cartridges. check the cartridges are the same ( or compatable )
if the cartridges have a chip fitted, they need to be reset if recently filled.
hope this helps mike @ Compurepair.

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

Yes, the flashing light on start-up is actually the Waste Ink pad is full
a Canon tech suggests that the job is very difficult (unfortunately even for them)
HOWEVER....
good news is that you can override it for awhile...

  • turn off power
  • press & hold RESUME button, then press POWER button
  • continue to hold POWER then release RESUME button
  • Press RESUME Button 2x quick
  • Release both RESUME and POWER
  • Green light will now blink, then stop
  • With Green light on....press RESUME 4x
  • Push Power button to turn printer off
this should resolve the issue
remember to rate the solutions...anything less than FIXYA actually lowers my rank...I didn't make the system...just wanting everyone to understand the impact of their vote....so if you need further help...just ask....hope it fixya'd...if it did then rate please!

    Why flash by 5 times the orange led?


    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 (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.

    This also applies to the i550, i560, i950, i960

    Good Luck, I hope this helps?!
