Canon i850 light flashing orange
ANSWER : I normally don’t waste my time with social media crap, but I had to come back to the site were I found some helpful info and possibly help the next person. First: I have a reliable Canon i850 so I’m only addressing that printer’s issues. Second: The tips about cleaning the printhead were a waste of time because, simply stated, the printer is 10 years old and the printhead just needed replacing. Third: I was only able to find the QY6-0064 printhead on ebay and only one of the businesses selling it was located in the US. That’s the one. I received the printhead within 4 days and I popped it into my printer and it started to purrrr just like it has for the past 10 years. I only decided to spend the $66 dollars for the printhead after I became desperate because it isn’t returnable. That risk was worth taking after driving back and forth to the library to print stuff and purchasing an Epson printer that I spent 2 days trying to hook up. I never could get the Epson to work even after numerous support calls and downloads so I returned it and bought the Canon printhead. Good luck
