Because of the way they're designed, older Canon printers can sometimes get dirty print heads which can cause some ink colors not to come out properly or at all. This can cause light printing or a tendency to a certain color, like what you're describing.
The best thing to do would be to go into the Printer Settings (by opening Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes) and right-click on the i965 to select 'Properties'.
Somewhere in that menu will be an option to run a Print Head Cleaning. Find that and allow it to run, and then print a test page to see if the colors have gotten back toward normal.
If it's still printing strangely, you might want to try to find a new print head (check www.canon.com to see if they still support the i965 model). If you can't find a replacement head for the i965, it might be time to buy a new printer, since it will probably cost more to have yours looked at and repaired than it would to simply replace it. Sad, but true!
hi from brisbane !!
your Canon printer is detecting low ink in the cartridge and stops the feed of ink .
i have had the same problem and have only refill the cartridge and its away again .
the cartridges have a few contacts on the back and sometimes by applying a magnent to those contacts , it erases the memory and start printing again .
try that and let me know how you go .
You might try unplugging the printer from electrical source and try unplugging your data cable from the computer. Shut down your computer and disconnect the data cable. Start your computer and then reconnect the data cable. This is assuming you have a usb data connector.
What you want to do is to try to get the printer back to its default settings. The amber light flashing is trying to tell you something. You should also unload any pending documents to try to get the printer back to its default state, but disconnecting data cables and or power connection is going to be required.
