Flashing green orange lights

The Canon service info is:
B200/P10 - Orange and green light blinking 10 times Description: A service error has occurred. Resolution: 1. Turn off the printer. 2. Disconnect the power cable. 3. Open the printer cover. 4. Check for any orange protective tape or white polystyrene and remove if necessary. 5. Check that there are no foreign objects in the printer (such as a paper clip) and remove if necessary. 6. Close the cover. 7. Reconnect and turn on. If the above solution has not resolved your error, please contact your nearest Canon authorised service facility using the link at the top of the page.

The error code is usually given for a foreign object present in the print head carriage path, so check at both ends for a crumpled up wedge of paper. If nothing is found, it is most likely that your print head has an over-heating problem and is dying

Yellow light blinks 7 times with 1 long green blink

Jennifer, According to an answer by kev1952 on 19 Sept, to my similar error condition ( "repeating sequence of 7 orange and 1 longer green flash of power LED" ) in a Canon i550 printer, and assuming that what you called yellow I called orange, then you too may have a printhead fault. kev1952 recommended to try to get it cleaned and checked at an ink refilling specialist service.
