If you have a look in the manual, the flashing orange light has several meanings depending on how many times it flashes (it is 8 for the waste ink absorber almost full). For alternate orange and green it looks serious. The manual says:

"POWER lamp flashes alternate green and orange:
An error that requires contacting a Canon service representative may have occurred.
Disconnect the printer cable from the printer, and then turn the printer off and unplug the printer from the power supply for a while. Plug the printer back in and turn the printer back on.
If the problem remains, contact a Canon service representative."

Hope this helps.

    Answer Part 1 of 2

    An error has occurred in the printer. The number of flashes indicates the type of error, as outlined below. Check the cause and take appropriate action.
    Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error
    Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
    Three flashes: Paper jam
    If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
    See Paper Jams
    Four flashes: Ink tank is not installed properly
    Open the Print Head Cover and check whether an ink tank is installed. If an ink tank is installed, push the button of the ink tank, and reinstall the ink tank properly.
    Five flashes: No Print Head installed, or Print Head failure
    Install a Print Head.
    When the error continues, contact a Canon service representative.
    Eight flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full
    Ink used for cleaning is absorbed in a waste ink absorber placed in the printer. Eight flashes indicate that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so that you can continue printing.
    Important
    If this error occurs, replacement of the waste ink absorber and maintenance of the printer are required. Canon recommends to contact a Canon service representative as soon as possible. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, it cannot be printed until the Waste ink tank is exchanged.

    Nine flashes: A specified period of time has lapsed without receiving a response from a digital camera or digital video camcorder / The digital camera or digital video camcorder connected is not compatible with this printer

    My printer is not working since we had a power outage.


    Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink tank full" error.

    The flashing orange and green alternately light indicates that the error the printer is experiencing requires it to be sent into an authorized canon service facility.

    Replacing the waste ink absorbtion pads is something the service facility can take care of for you. Once they are replaced, it'll be functional again.

    When i turn my printer on the light flashes green once and then orange 5 times. cannot get past this stage - any ideas?


    Here are all the flashing explanations:

    Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error

    Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

    Three flashes: Paper jam

    If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

    See Paper Jams

    Four flashes: Empty ink tank

    If you press the RESUME/CANCEL button, it will continue printing with an empty ink tank. After printing is finished, replace the ink tank immediately. If you continue printing with an empty ink tank, it may cause damage to your printer.

    Refer to your Quick Start Guide for instructions on how to replace an ink tank.

    Five flashes: No print head installed/Defective print head

    Install the print head. Also, ensure that the protective tape has been removed.

    If reinstalling the print head does not solve the problem, replace it with a new one. Contact the Customer Care Center.

    Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full

    The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact the Customer Care Center.

    The Power Light Flashes Orange - Error Codes When an error occurs, the power light flashes orange. The number of orange flashes followed by a long green flash indicates the cause of the problem.

    If no paper is loaded in the auto sheet feeder, or if the paper is not loaded correctly, set the paper correctly and press the Resume button on the printer to continue printing.
    Three orange flashes: Paper jam

    The BJC 3000 will flash two different colored lights in a pattern to signal several different errors. From the documentation I have the two colors are orange and green, could those be the colors you see? At any rate here is the code: Two orange flashes: Out of paper, paper jam, or paper feed error. If no paper is loaded in the auto sheet feeder, or if the paper is not loaded correctly, set the paper correctly and press the Resume button on the printer to continue printing. Three orange flashes: Paper jam. If paper has jammed in the printer, carefully remove the jam and press the Resume button to continue printing. Four orange flashes: A tank inside the BJ cartridge (print head) is out of ink. Replace the empty BJ tank and press the Resume button to continue printing. Five orange flashes: BJ cartridge is not installed properly. Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely. Six orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is not installed. Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely. Seven orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is defective. Remove the BJ cartridge and check that the contacts on the cartridge and cartridge holder are clean. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed and reinstall the cartridge. If the error occurs again after you resume operation, you may need to replace the BJ cartridge. Eight orange flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full. The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink that is consumed during print head cleaning. This error indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the Resume button to skip the error so you can continue printing. The POWER light flashes orange and green alternately: Service error. A service error means the printer requires the attention of a qualified technician. If you have any more questions let us know otherwise please don't forget to rate this post.
