I have a canon i990 showing "operating error" orange light flashing 5 times

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.

Can you tell me how to empty the waste ink tank on a Canon i990 inkjet printer

There is no ink tank, it's a set of fitted absorbent pads underneath the entire print engine. You need a shop to replace them since you need the service mode to reset the counter and clear the error.

Have a 1 year old Pro9000 thats starting to give

Use a Q-tip and a little water to wipe the wiper assembly on the right side of your machine. Unplug the printer when the carts are in the middle and look to the right with a flashlight. The wipers are supposed to wipe excess ink from the bottom of the printhead.

Unused ink tank

I am getting a Service error code 5200 on my i990 printer with the message,
Cancel printing and turn the printer off and then back on.
If this doesn't clear the error, see the printer manual for more detail. The manual dosen't help. Can you!
