I experienced the same problem with my i990.
Tried everything software-wise, nothing worked. The printhead was not even detected by the printer. I then took it out (remove ink tanks- then open grey lever and simply lift out the printhead) I cleaned the copper electrical contacts at the back with contact spray or penetrating oil on a kleenex tissue and the refitted everything. It works as new.

Dear Bruce,
Blinking in orange 5 times indicates that the print head of your printer is faulty. To ensure this you can compare by using another print head. But first,please remove the print head and check whether it is burnt. Some short circuitry may cause the problem. Thanks.

Your printer is telling you it has an operating error, many printers give flashing lights as error codes to tell you what is wrong. If you visit the cannon website for your area, they will be able to tell you exact error code. If you do not want to do this, give me some time and i will be happy to help by finding the error for you. To help me, post back with what your printer is or is not doing correctly to get the error in the firts place. lilacgerry
