Hi experts,
I have a Canon BJC 210. I had to unplug everything from my computer to do a service job. When I plugged back in everything and also my printer , both green and orange lights are flashing and gives 10 beeps. I tried reseating the ink cartridge, unplugged the printer power and also parallel port, switched on and off several times, but still gives the same problem. The printer won't print too. I tried to print a test page by holding the power button for one beep, but didn't print.what could be the problem and help me with a solution.  

Thanks,
Priya.

Canon isn't very helpful in this problem because they say:  "If both the POWER and ERROR lights are flashing, turn the printer off and unplug the power cord.  If the error returns after plugging the printer back in and turning the power back on, the printer probably needs to be serviced. Contact the Customer Care Center."

Just a few thoughts though....if you remove the ink cartridges and turn the printer on do you get a number of beeps or flashing lights?  I assume you have checked for paper jams (little pieces of paper also).    

If that doesn't help I would assume it is a hardware issue and might me better just to get a new printer.

If I remove the ink cartridge and turn the printer on only the green light flashes indicating that the cartridge is not installed. no beeps. I've checked for paper jams also, none.

I removed the inkcartridge and installed it several times and finally it started working. Probably something wrong with the parts inside. Anyways , it is an old printer and needs to be replaced very soon.

Thanks a lot for you support.
