Re: blinking red warning light
Could have a corrupt driver. Disconnect
the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do
both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer
to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Remove the right ink cartridge (color). You will get an error saying the cartridge is empty, but ignore that. Hit cancel on your printer. Print your job...when your print screen comes up, under preferences check the box for print colors in black and white. Your printer should print just fine without the color cartridge. Ignore the flashing red light.
Lots of luck. I couldn't even get the printer to load the software or install the hardware. I was helped by Dell's tech support (Dell has one of the best tech support programs that exists, in my opinion) for at least 4 hours without any good results. They sent me a replacement for a replacement and I finally got the printer and the software to show by installing it differently. Now it will not print, and, like you, the light to the power button blinks all the time and the printer states that there is no color cartridge installed, even though I have re-installed the new trial cartridge sent by Dell several times. I am going to purchase a new Canon Printer.
