Question about Canon BubleJet i965 InkJet Printer
Printer is showing green power light flashing alternately with 3 amber flashes then back to green then amber and so on
SOURCE: Operator Error Message
Firstly most printers need to be told when you have re installed cartridges as they think they are still there from the fault. Go to your printer and faxes menu and select your printer and delete any pending print jobs. Next go to add/remove programmes and delete the printer software driver and disconnect printer from both pc and the mains for about minutes. Re install driver and reconnect printer to pc when prompted by driver or when it is fully installed, prefferably in a different usb port than previous and go through the set up as normall. if the same problem occurs, the printer must be faulty and require a repair or replacement.

Install the Print Head. If the Print Head is already installed, remove the Print Head and check the electrical contacts for foreign matter, then reinstall.
After reinstalling the Print Head, you may need to realign it.
If this error still remains, the Print Head may be damaged. Contact a Canon service representative.

The 6000 error tells you there's a line feed problem, that's the platen roller that the paper is fed over just before printing. You need to inspect with a flashlight and mirror to see that nothing is inside stopping the roller from turning. Sometimes I find toys, screws, gum, candy inside usually from little hands.
