I have similar problem. I found this solution that may help you. My problem insists tho.
>>> 5 flashes indicates a faulty printhead or possibly a problem with the p/head contacts. Try removing the head which is easier if you take the cartridges out first(no tools required) and re-seat it having checked the contacts for dirt.
If that doesn't work it may be that the waste ink tank is full. Try this ...
Canon S9000, S300, S400, i550, i560, i850, i860, i865, i9100, i9950, PIXMA iP3000 above,
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

SOURCE: Canon ip90 4 blinks error
4 blinks is a purge unit error, that's the device that the printhead parks on on the right. Could be just a paper scrap inside, or the gears are worn out. The replacement includes the entire print engine and costs more than a new printer to replace.

Testimonial: "I thought this response was very knowledgeable and useful. t didn't solve by problem, but gives me a good understanding of the situation. "
5 times says the printhead is bad and needs to be replaced.The part number is stamped on the side so you can get the right one.

That error says the purge assembly is not moving properly, check for paper stuck over on the right where the printhead parks, also if the squeegee is stuck over the cleaning pads you need to push it back to allow the pads to come up properly.

May I know the exact error messages in the printer screen. If it's green and yellow lights that are flashing you need to push more the two cartridges that you replace....also try to clean it using the printer program installed in your computer....good luck and hope it will help....
