I get three blinking yellow lights and one green light then it repeats on my I9900. I can't print

Are you looking at the blinking lights under the cartridges? I presume you have replaced them with new ones? When ink is low it lets you print with warnings, but when the cartridge is empty it will stop you printing all together to prevent you damaging the machine.

Canon i9900 wont print, light keeps flashing green to yellow

Good Day,
Have you tried software update? According to this article,, it says Canon has updated it's drivers via Software Update.
f possible, spray some Windex in the heads and let it sit for, oh, 10-15 minutes. Then try to print. Any dried ink guck will be dissolved by the Windex.

Blinks green, yellow, green yellow

Anytime it flashes green and yellow there's a service error, but you need to count how many times it flashes between the longer green flashes, that tells us the error code.

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.
