Try removing your printer cartridges and then the print head from the printer. If the printer powers up with the print head removed, then the print head is either shorted or clogged. If it's shorted out then you will need a new print head (usually cheaper to just buy a new printer). If you can clean the print head without damaging it, sometimes it will work again. Usaully a good 24 hour soak in alcohol or a cleaning solution will work.
Sorry the manual doesn't help much either... this is what it says, "POWER lamp flashes alternate green and orange Turn the printer off and unplug
the printer from the power supply. Plug the printer back in and turn the printer
back on. If the problem remains, contact
a Canon service representative."
You could try the following reset code which works when reseting after emptying the waste ink tank:
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.
