The orange light on pixma iP4300 is flashing 5 times. I have cleaned the printhead (gold contacts) with alcohol PJ

Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water or a mixture of hot water and isopropyl alcohol
Use it to clean the print head and the electronic contacts on each ink cartridge
Once done, allow to dry and try again
If the error still persists, you have a damaged print head which needs to be replaced with a new one
Hope this help!

My canon pixma iP4300 wont print cyan, I have perfoermed deep head cleaning, replaced cartrdges 6 times and still same problem

Unfortunately the problem is in the printhead situated just under where the ink cartridges go. It can be removed by removing ink cartridges and lifting it out from the top. You could try cleaning it or dispersing it in a mil of hot water for 1 minute while holding it. Then dry it, reinstall it and run deep clean again. Unfortunately this does not work very often but you could get lucky.
If not then only alternative is to buy another printhead and they cost more than the printer is worth.

Not printing yellow

It seems that your cartridge needs replacement. But you can still try this:

remove your color cartridge, dip the head in warm water for about 5 mins.

remember, dip only the head. it's the part where ink flows out. be careful not to touch or wet the gold contacts on the side of the cartridge.

if you have been using this for sometime chances are you are getting a wrong indicator on your screen, sometimes it is not as accurate as supposedly. kindly check the number of prints you made before. i suspect that you are actually runing out on ink

and might need to replace the affected color.
