My printer just stopped in the middle of a printing application.
I receive the yellow blinking light, when I click on the resume button
it will go to the green light but immediately go back to the yellow
one. The only error message I receive is that the paper thickness lever
is incorrect so I have switched it back to the other side but again it
will go to the green light momentarily then right back to the yellow
blinking light with the same message.
The yellow blinking light is not reported in the code errors, take a look to service manual http://rapidshare.com/files/91114670/Canon_i550_i850_i950_Service_Manual.pdf.html (hard to find but I did it ! )
I had the same problem and I solve it sending the clean head command from the settings of the printer driver (win XP) I also reset the printer as it is explained in the service manual.

try this. It is the reset for the waste ink error (8 flashes)
1) With the printer power OFF, while pressing the Resume button, press the Power button. (Do not release the power button.) 2) While pressing the Power button, release the Resume button, press the Resume button again twice, and then release the Resume button and Power button. 3) The green indicator flashes during initialization. When the indicator stops flashing and remains on, press the Resume button 4 times to clear waste ink message. (The indicator toggles between orange and green each time the Resume button is pressed.) 4) Next, press the Power button, and the green indicator will light, and the function will be executed. 5) Turn off the printer then back on and error should clear.
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.
