If you have a look in the manual, the flashing orange light has several meanings depending on how many times it flashes (it is 8 for the waste ink absorber almost full). For alternate orange and green it looks serious. The manual says:

"POWER lamp flashes alternate green and orange:
An error that requires contacting a Canon service representative may have occurred.
Disconnect the printer cable from the printer, and then turn the printer off and unplug the printer from the power supply for a while. Plug the printer back in and turn the printer back on.
If the problem remains, contact a Canon service representative."

Hope this helps.
