    I have the same problem and $50 plus worth of new ink cartridges for nothing.
    Is there e any hope for a reasonable fix?

This solution sounded to strange to be real but I was desperate for a solution to the orange light blinking 7 times and getting NO response from the printer whatsoever. It actually worked!

  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.

Did you ever figure out how to fix it? i have the same problem, have tried the solution above, no luck. The first part works fine, I hold down the resume and then power, let go of resume and the press resume 2 more times (with power button held down). During those two pushes of the resume, the light goes to orange and then green. But when I let go of the power, it goes back to blinking, never solid green as the instructions say. I have cleaned the cartridge really well a number of times with alcohol and windex, and it was dirty but now nothing but clean water emerges in subsequent soaks and rinses. I may have to trash this thing, I guess it has done me well enough over the years.

Wow, I thought I was the only one :) That is such an odd error. But yes, I am having the same problem and the "Best Solution" doesn't seem to be the best solution for my printer. I tried it several times, but nothing worked.

Canon ip100 portable printer ink cradle stuck on right hand side


I had this same problem. Count the number of blinks in sequence of the error light. it will flash green and yellow, and then just straight yellow for a number of flashes, then it will flash green again and the same number of yellow flashes again. Here is the diagnostic guide.

Two flashes: Printer is out of paper. Paper does not feed

Three flashes: Paper jam

Four Flashes: The Print Head Lock Lever is not locked properly / Ink tank is not installed properly. / Ink may have run out

Five flashes: Print Head is not installed./ Print Head is defective

Eight flashes: Ink absorber is almost full

Nine flashes:No response from connected digital camera or video camcorder/Connected digital camera or video camcorder is not compatible with this printer./PictBridge compliant devices are attached to both Direct Print Port and Bluetooth Unit Connector

Eleven flashes: Automatic Print Head Alignment failed

Twelve Flashes: Low battery level

Fifteen Flashes: Ink tank cannot be recognized

Seventeen Flashes: Ink has run out

Eighteen Flashes: Printer detected ink out condition

Nineteen Flashes: A USB hub is connected

Mine had 10 Flashes and the Print Carriage, was bad. Cost almost as much as another printer so thats what I did. I did take it apart and got it unstuck, but still didn't work.

Are you able to print a test page from the printer directly? if you are then check to see if the printer is set to Offline mode, if it's ok the I suggest you un-install the printer driver and re-install it again.
