Canon I550, flashing green orange

Canon I550, flashing green orange by Ken (5/18/04 12:29 PM) reply+1 + / -
My Canon I550 has died, two months out of warranty. It flashes a sequence of four green/orange. I've tried all the usual stuff, including cleaning the printhead contacts, new ink cartridges, etc. Can anyone decode that light combination? Thanks.

Start the status monitor on the host computer in order to display the error messages. It will give you a number such as (5c00). This will give us a better idea. But I think it is either a purge unit jam, which will need to have the purge unit removed and washed out with warm water, but you need to remove the motor and sensor in the purge unit FIRST. Otherwise it could be a main board error, which can be reset once we have the code number.

Thanks for your help.
When I can persuade it to get as far as giving me an error message (rather than just "printer not responding") I get 5c00. Possibly relevant I was getting intermittant 5c00 for a couple of weeks before it went permanent.

I've got the same problem which began when the paper exit tray was closed during operation, and the print gave a great grinding noise. How does one get out the purge unit (and the motor and sensor in the purge unit)?

My i550 has suddenly ceased to respond.
I switch on and the Green Light flashes and then the Orange Light flashes intermittently. Not sure number of flashes of each.
Probably 4 Green / 4 Orange
Checked documentation from CD and tells me it requires a service call.
Is this fixable and economically so?
Can anyone help?
Or is it time to throw away and purchase another?
I have been pleased with Canon Printer but not sure I`d buy another.
Your help would be appreciated.
