    The power light blinks continuously from the moment the printer is switched on, like it's in an error state. It doesn't want to print and is really difficult to turn off.

I eventually discovered that the blinking was simply caused by the printer running out of ink. I intially dismissed this as a possibility because Windows always used to warn us when the ink was getting low. However, I presume that we no longer get those warnings now that we're running on Vista rather than XP - a compatibility issue I guess.

How do I change the Waste Ink collector on a Pixma MP170?


Cleaning or changing the pad is a messy project. This ink pad reset will reset the printer ink use conter to new status and your pad full message will be gone. This is a common occurance with Canon printers and the fix causes no harm. I reset my own MP470 about two years ago without incident.

This reset has been sucessful on many MP150 and simular units and should work on your MP170.
The second works on models with different control pads simular to theMP470.

printer powered off but connected on power source , you must:
1. Press & hold stop/reset button, and then press & hold [ON/OFF] button.
2. When Green power lit, leave stop/reset button & press twice stop/reset (see orange indicator).
3. Leave On/Off button. Printer in actually service mode.
4. Press stop/reset 4 times (see orange indicator) if not blink restart above process from top.
5. After press stop/reset 4 times successful press On/Off button 3 times. printer will off.
6. Press On/Off button.


---------------------

Waste ink full reset


These are the instructions which worked for me on my Canon pixma mp470:

1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the
selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

6) Power off then back on and test.

The power led of my printer in keeping on blinking.


This problem sounds like it has a print job waiting to print. make sure the paper is inserted properly and press the power button quickly and release. If something prints, it should stop blinking.

Printer is not loading paper


The blinking lights are probably error codes. By the sequence, you can tell where the problem is. Also, you should be able to hold down certain buttons, when you power on the printer, to get tests.
