  1. Hi
    I have an ip4000 that has just started printing lank pages. I couldn't get the print head to come out yesterday on it own so I pulled it out manually. didn't take any real persuasion, checked the inks all ok. it still wont print and now the print head wont come out at all and I am getting 5 orange warning lights

    Anyone any idea please before I throw it out of the window

    Is that a Pixma iP4000? If so, have a look at this service manual. Not sure how old your printer is, cost of replacement part(s), or time require to troubleshoot & repair. Might be less headache to get a new one.

    The main logic board is probably bad or it may be a power supply problem
