Does anybody have problems with their printers?
I am using a IP3000 and have changed numerous different printer models beforehand. None survived long enough.

Now my printer is showing 5 blinking orange lights.
Something like this:

But it is 5 times orange light instead of 2 in the picture above.

According to this website, the problem is due to possibly 2 reasons:

1. The print head is not installed. Solution, install the print head, and perform the print head alignment.
2. The print head has failed. If the print head is installed, remove it, confirm whether or not the contact points are clean, and re-install the print head. If the error persists, the print head may be damaged.

Anybody know any support or repair services or even ideas to solve the problem effectively?
All help greatly and much appreciated smile.gif
