After a couple print-outs, it stopped working again. Wonder if I should resort to to the Windex treatment of the caps? The procedure might take three days. It appears that there are a lot of things that can happen to give the same effect and somehow give the same 7 orange flashes. So did only PART of the printer head go bad?

These are usually really dried up and clogged ink, but most of it is in the pads. I just take a syringe and needle. Some refill instructions tell you to fit the syringe tip into this hole and hold the tank upside down syringe pointing up and fill the tank.
Put the printer head on a towel in the water or alcohol as suggested and leave for at least a day to see if there is leaching of the ink. I have seen a great many printers come in with burned out pritn heads due to the water not cooling the print head properly and also the filter screens being plugged up from unfiltered water based refilled cartridges and that too will burn out the print head.

I entered the codes as you suggest and I now have a functioning S Enough of this experimentation. Thank you so much for your help. Is there any test you know of, or any additional symptom to confirm the printhead is dead? Hi, Yes it was working before I replaced pring catridges. Would csnon be a clue there? I kind of massaged it against the back. I got my canon s work again only on the black color after the soak and dry treatment. While it’s soaking, get an eye-dropper or anything that will let you pick up a drop of Windex and drop a small drop of Windex onto each of the 4 tank inlets.

And it if doesn’t turn on, check the cables, make sure they are plugged in correctly and aren’t lose. Canon Tek, Maybe you can help me out here, I was having trouble with black ink so anyway I change all the ink cartridges, when I do a nozzle check all colors show up not perfect but they are there This note then gives you several other options to diagnose your problem, and takes you to a page where you then can select, “List of power lamp indications”.
I have checked the ink left in the cartridges. If you print as much as you say, this will break your bank.
Now I’m up to my last option, and thats to throw it out the window! Wait for the printer’s status light to stop blinking.
When you get the carriage in the center and the power is unplugged, you can look inside to the right and see the pads. Only the print head designers know how the chip is programmed and there is little if anything that can be done to reset it.
Glossy, top-quality paper for vibrant, lifelike color images you won’t be able to tell from the original. GP Glossy Photo Paper – 8. So you’re back in working order now and all is okay? It is clear that many people have cleaned there printhead and done the reset and got it to work.

But a half hour under a stream of hot water and several squirts of Windex seem to have put me back in action.
But so far, as I tested it twice, it has not worked but it also has not destroyed the black ink which was always working.
Well, so far I’ve tried cleaning the printhead per CanonTek’s instructions, without success, then reinstalled my old Lexmark had a good black cartridge, but color was out. It would be interesting if this works for anybody else and what the explanation really is. Congrats again caanon getting your printer to work.
