Question about Canon BJC S450 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Cannon s450 Hello, I wanted to tell you we have the same problem as mllent-one green and six orange blinking light. We tried your procedure and had no luck! First, I'm not sure it is for the same printer, because we have two buttons, one the power and the other one I thought was the reset button! When we tried your procedure, there was no beep. actually, it didn't do anything that was mentioned! Do you think we need a new printer? My wife was printing something one time and it musn't of finished. the next day when I booted up a popup came up and asked if I wanted to finish printing. I didn't know she had tried to print anything so I clicked on no. Since then we haven't been able to print. I hadn't looked at the printer before the popup showed, so I don't know if it was blinking before I clicked on no! Can you please help? Dennis

G'Day Dennis,
OK try turning off printer at power point and leave for 10 to 15 minutes before starting again then try this reset proceedure again.
If it doesn't work, a new printer might be cheaper than taking yours for service, but if you use compatible inks, the price differance for cartridges might make a repair worthwhile.

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.

Canon S450


From what I can tell the 6 orange lights indicate a print head failure. Why the print head has failed is another question maybe too old (I've read somewhere that they only operate for a fixed amount of time), maybe printed enough pages (somewhere else indicated that they only print a fixed number of pages). The solution is to replace the printhead (not just the ink tanks).

There is no way to know which print head needs replacing, so unless you have a spare one you will just have to choose which to change, and if you get it wrong try the other one. It appears to be an expensive way of solving the problem (but I have just found it cheaper to buy a print head which comes with 3 tanks than to buy 3 separate tanks!).
