Canon i550 yellow light blinks 7 times.
You machine probably thinks it has more than one of the same colour installed. Take them all out and re-install one at a time allowing the machine to reset between each . If it doesn't fix the problem you will find out which cartridge is at fault and replace it.

I've just acquired a 2nd
Here is a possible solution.
Open 'Printers and Faxes' and right-click your printer. Select 'Properties' from the menu.
Select Paper/Quality tab. And from the 'Paper Source' select 'Auto feeder' or 'Auto' if 'Manual feed' is selected.
If Manual feed is selected, that means the printer is waiting for you to insert a paper for each page to print. That is why you get only the first page printed.
Good luck! And if this solves your problem, consider voting me.

My i550 won't print
In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken . Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or poor ink cartridge contacts. Sometimes the power supply unit must be checked as a poor SMPS unit can deliver low voltage and cause issues to the printer function. Check all the leads and connections of the mother board , the tags to the ink cartridge. Also check the mechanical settings of the ink cartridge , if jammed or tight remove motor and manually free the drive before it is set back.

Canon i550-turn on-orange/green 8x then long green
From the Canon website:
Issue: Alarm / Power light flashes orange 8 times consecutively (Waste Ink Nearly Full Error)
Solution: Ink Absorber Replacement Options i550
Ink Absorber Replacement Options
This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible by pressing the <Resume> button on the printer. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.
Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. We are aware that there are many "do-it-yourself" Web sites that offer instructions for making this repair. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Be aware that if you attempt this procedure, it is at your own risk.

Canon i550 LED error sequence: 7 orange +1 green flash
According to Canon 7 orange flashes indicates a print head fault. Solution they recommend is to take it to one of their service agents. Problem is that replacement print heads are not cheap and it is usually more economical to replace the printer. You could try taking the print head to a cartridge refiller and have it professionally cleaned (cost you nothing or next to nothing) and see if that solves the problem.
