    Solution:
    Reset the printer























    Resetting the Printer

    By
    resetting the printer's power, the print buffer is cleared and certain
    sensors are reset. If there is invalid data in the buffer, or sensors
    are stuck in a particular mode; errors may occur.

    Follow these steps to reset the printer:


    1. Turn the printer off with the Power button (if available).


    2. Disconnect the data cable from the printer (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared) .


    3. Unplug
      the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it
      back in. If troubleshooting a communication issue, reconnect the data
      cable (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared).


    4. Turn the printer back on.

Printer does not print. yellow light blinks 5 Problem with the Canon i9900 InkJet Photo Printer

I960 resume light flashes yellow 5 times 1 green


Five yellow flashes indicate that the printer doesn't recognize the print head, or thinks that the wrong print head is installed. You can try to remedy this by opening the cover, removing the ink tanks, then removing the print head (lift the locking lever). Check that the copper contacts on the back of the print head are clean, then reinsert the print head, lock it in, and reinstall the ink tanks. If you still have the error indication, the print head may be bad and need replacing. Contact Canon for your options on this.
