Question about Canon PIXMA iP3000 InkJet Photo Printer
Just installed new printhead and it shows error of 5 blinking orange lights. Does eeprom need resetting? If so, how to do it?
read entire solution first, see the 6 modes section.
First thing you need to do is print an EEPROM information page, step number 2 below.
Once you have an EEPROM print you can reset the waste ink counter, if needed, which is step number 4 below.
Service Mode: This printer has a service mode for service-related settings and for performing test prints. The operator panel buttons are used to enter the desired service mode.
Service Mode Operations
With the printer powered off, hold down the "Resume Button" and press the "Power Button".
While holding down the "Power Button", release the Resume Button" and press the "Resume Button" twice in succession. Now release the "Power Button".
The indicator will blink in green and remain lit in green.
Select one of the following service mode functions by pressing the “Resume Button” the specified number of times.
1 time = Service test print.
2 times = EEPROM information print.
3 times = EEPROM initialization
4 times = Waste ink counter resetting
5 times = Destination settings
6 times = Print head deep cleaning
Then press the “Power Button” one time to perform selected function.
If you press the "Power Button" two times it will take you out of service mode.
This information is listed above in this thread and many times in other Canon threads in this forum. I simplified Canons wording so I could remember the service mode functions easier.
I got service error 5100 after a paper jam sometimes 5 times blinking orange. in my PIXMA IP 3000
to fix it
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal..
or: and Also;
Unplug unit, hold power and reset button down then plug it in while still holding both buttons down;
Then to step 3 above.

I have tried to follow all advices here to restet my IP3000, 5 orange flas, one green, but it does not work.
After done step for, the green light NEVER stop blinking. Instead the orange flashes comes back as ususal. I have tested this several times now, and I am used to do service at printers.
There must be an error in the description, OR my printhead is too much damaged.
A new one is more expencive than a printer, but I have ink in stock :-(
