Question about Canon PIXMA™ MP510 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The waste ink collector pads are getting full and this is a protection indicator.
Either get the machine serviced or it may be cheaper to replace it-[depending where you live]
There are tricks to keep the machine going- but eventually the you will get ink leaking all over the place.

Go here. In the search window type "flashing orange green" and click on Search. Alternating orange and green usually indicates the printer needs service. If the light flashes orange (only) a number of times, you may be able to fix the problem yourself.

Driver could be corrupt.
Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Here are all the flashing explanations:
Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error
Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
Three flashes: Paper jam
If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
See Paper Jams
Four flashes: Empty ink tank
If you press the RESUME/CANCEL button, it will continue printing with an empty ink tank. After printing is finished, replace the ink tank immediately. If you continue printing with an empty ink tank, it may cause damage to your printer.
Refer to your Quick Start Guide for instructions on how to replace an ink tank.
Five flashes: No print head installed/Defective print head
Install the print head. Also, ensure that the protective tape has been removed.
If reinstalling the print head does not solve the problem, replace it with a new one. Contact the Customer Care Center.
Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact the Customer Care Center.
