I get three blinking yellow lights and one green light then it repeats on my I9900. I can't print


Are you looking at the blinking lights under the cartridges? I presume you have replaced them with new ones? When ink is low it lets you print with warnings, but when the cartridge is empty it will stop you printing all together to prevent you damaging the machine.

The yellow light blinks and it won't print


I also started having problems with my HP 870Cse when I began using refilled cartridges and had ink leakage (cartridge contacts corrupted). Check for this problem. If so, remove cartridges and gently clean the spillage. Then try using HP brand cartridges and see if this doesn't remedy the problem.

Canon i550 problem


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.
