The drum has come to the end of its life. You should replace the drum assembly and reset the drum counter. Here is the procedure:
power off and open front door
hold down the continue button as you power on printer leaving front door open
when error light comes on release continue and close front door.
toner low, load paper, ready, and continue will all be lit.
press cancel slowly 4 times or until just toner low lights up. each time you press cancel, the light sequence should change
when just toner low is lit, press and hold continue button until lights cycle up and down in sequence.
release continue.. toner low will be lit again
turn printer off, wait 10 secs or so and then back on
press continue button to print off settings page and check under cartridge information, photoconductor value is 0K (zero)

HP Premium All in one printer c 309a all lights keep flashing.


Have you tried unplugging the printer from the wall for 5 minutes to reset it? If that doesn't work you either have a defective ink cartridge or the printer is defective. Due to the very low prices of new printers replacing it in almost all cases is the cost conscious thing to do.

Blinking/flashing lights(orange & green) & won;t pring. Have rebooted computer and unpluged printer. still won't print.


that is because ur head of ur printing cartridge is damaged.

remove ur cartridges black as well as color
n install only black cartridge n check d blinking of lights on ur printer if it doesn't blinks it's mean ur black cartridge is OK but ur blinking of light on ur printer is same it's mean ur head of black cartridge is damaged
after this process remove the black one cartridge and install the color one cartridge n check d blinking of lights on ur printer if it doesn't blinks it's mean ur color cartridge is OK but ur blinking of light on ur printer is same it's mean ur head of color cartridge is damaged
now take a dry cotton cloth n gently clean ur cartridges head install both cartridges on ur printer n check ur blinking light on ur printer that will work only if u r too lucky other wise u have to purchase a one cartridge.

I have a Cannon i560 printer and the light on printer flashes five times orange then flashes green, what is the problem and how can I fix it.


5 flashes indicates a faulty printhead or possibly a problem with the p/head contacts. Try removing the head which is easier if you take the cartridges out first(no tools required) and re-seat it having checked the contacts for dirt.

If that doesn't work it may be that the waste ink tank is full. Try this ...

Canon S9000, S300, S400, i550, i560, i850, i860, i865, i9100, i9950, PIXMA iP3000 above,
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.
