Printer wont go online - light continually flashing green to yellow...
After printer failed to print document, I noticed the light on the printer, which is usually green when online, is now flashing green to orange to green ... Have turned printer off several times, makes no difference, have disconnected power to printer for a number of minutes, still no change. Prior to attempting to print document today we had experienced some power failures overnight. HELP! I'm tearing my hair out.

I had this same problem. Count the number of blinks in sequence of the error light. it will flash green and yellow, and then just straight yellow for a number of flashes, then it will flash green again and the same number of yellow flashes again. Here is the diagnostic guide.
Two flashes: Printer is out of paper. Paper does not feed
Three flashes: Paper jam
Four Flashes: The Print Head Lock Lever is not locked properly / Ink tank is not installed properly. / Ink may have run out
Five flashes: Print Head is not installed./ Print Head is defective
Eight flashes: Ink absorber is almost full
Nine flashes:No response from connected digital camera or video camcorder/Connected digital camera or video camcorder is not compatible with this printer./PictBridge compliant devices are attached to both Direct Print Port and Bluetooth Unit Connector
Eleven flashes: Automatic Print Head Alignment failed
Twelve Flashes: Low battery level
Fifteen Flashes: Ink tank cannot be recognized
Seventeen Flashes: Ink has run out
Eighteen Flashes: Printer detected ink out condition
Nineteen Flashes: A USB hub is connected
Mine had 10 Flashes and the Print Carriage, was bad. Cost almost as much as another printer so thats what I did. I did take it apart and got it unstuck, but still didn't work.
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....
Thats ..paper size mismatch, check the paper size settings of your printer in printer properties is the same as what document or document program is set to under page size of the document you wish to print, if these dont match the printer goes offline so you can put in what it's been told is the right size paper or press online to force it to print regardless...so in your case check paper size in both locations and you should be right, there are other things but 99% of the time..thats ya baby;)
when the yellow led flashes is never a good signal... you should check the manual's printer to find out the error code meaning "4 yellow flashes and 1 green) Usally it's the waste tank that is full, in this case you need to:
Push “resume” for 5 seconds for canon IPXXXX.
Push Power switch then remove power cord.
Insert plug power cord while pressing “power switch” at the same time.
Push Start/reset by step 2 continue Wait display shown “0′
Push + change display from “0′ to “1′
Push color button 2 times
Push Power switch again , Printer will print 1 page
Move mouse pointer on to your printer icon in the Printer folder. Does a right click and click on the sixth line of the menu (“Use printer on line”). Then it will change as “Use printer offline”. Make sure the printer is set as default printer.
