Re: MG5650 Orange alarm light on, not flashing, no error displayed.

Sorry to hear people are still experiencing this Smiley Sad. Mine was replaced by Canon back when I opened this thread years ago and it has been working flawlessly ever since. Never got the error again. Best I can suggest is to contact Canon customer support or the store where you purchased the printer if it's still in warranty and hope they can replace yours as well.

Alarm light ON, cannot switch the machine ON.  Plenty of paper, nothing jammed in the machine.  Does this mean I have buy another?

Here is what worked for me (not a specialist, just a user)

  • Disconnect printer from the power outlet.
  • While keeping the red STOP button pressed, connect printer to the power outlet again (nice gymnastics!)
  • After some 20 s or so, the orange light will start to blink (every 2 or 3 s)
  • At that time unpress the red STOP button (the orange light will continue to blink at low frequency)
  • Press the ON button
  • The printer starts up again and shows a warning indicating that last time it was not properly stopped. Always power off the printer with the button, not by disconnecting the power cord.  Glad it was forgiving this time.

My MG5650 printer got this problem today. Tried JosBly's method above. Pressed the red STOP button for several seconds and sure enough the orange light starts to slow-blink.
However, pressing the ON button after this did not work. All that happened is that the orange light went back to solid Smiley Sad

Does anyone at Canon have a proper solution to this issue?

None of the suggestions on here worked for me. So I found my own solution by trial and error
① Turn off printer
② turn on the printer with power button and WiFi button held down.

③ release all buttons at once.

 

Printer bursts into life.

Just to clarify my symptoms were:
No power light lit

Orange lamp lit not flashing.

No matter how many times I turned it on printer was dead.

Hope this fix works for you also
