Question about Canon BubbleJet i550 InkJet Printer
My older computer crashed and I got a replacement, a Dell. Previously I used the old printer parallel port. Now the new Dell has only USB ports. So I got a new generic printer cable connected it and the printer starts making the usual noises then comes the grating, mettalic sound and the light changes from green to orange blinks twice in succession gives a green and continues like that. nothing happens.
I downloaded and installed the new drivers and still the same as before. The manual says two flashing orange lights mean the paper need to be reloaded. But this did not make any difference.
What would you suggest?
Try the below procedures maybe the error of your printer is the waste ink counter.

1. Start with the 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 printer is done moving print head.
6. Select functions below with RESUME press POWER to execute:
Number of presses - light color - function
0 presses - green - Test print (or exit service mode on i960)
1 press - orange - EEPROM info print (plus grid nozzle diagnostic on i960)
