Dear Bill,
Flashing 5 times in orange indicates that print head error occurs so it cannot be detected properly by the printer. To make it sure, install a good print head in the printer. Is the problem fixed?. If the problem still persist, carriage part may be faulty. Overall, the print head is the most faulty part in this case. So, you need to replace the print head with new one.
Regards,

My canon i9900 is offline


It usually means that the printer is off, not connected to your computer or your computer does not recognize it. If your computer doesn't recognize your printer, go to control panel and click on add new hardware, then follow the directions . After trying all the above try using your printer once again.

Good luck!

Cannon Image writer 2870 -trying to retrieve a confirmation log for the past week (todays date 5/22/09)


At machine you can select 'monitor'from the bottom of the screen and select the log for copy or print. If you have network access to the machine you can use the RUI, it's much clearer. Just type in the IP address of your machine and the RUI interface will be displayed. You'll find print, scan and copy logs easy to find there and print.

Colours have suddenly become washed out and lime green.


I read a lot of complicated stuff about cleaning the print head after my similar problem this week. Finally I found an old, soft toothlbrush, gave it a very light spray with windex and lightly brushed the magenta print head. I put the cannon cartridge back in and everything is printing perfect again. This worked for me, good luck to l you.

If you can print, than it is possible the computer has recognized plug-play (PnP) printer. The downloaded program may not be the one for your specific printer.
