Yes, the flashing light on start-up is actually the Waste Ink pad is full
a Canon tech suggests that the job is very difficult (unfortunately even for them)
HOWEVER....
good news is that you can override it for awhile...

  • turn off power
  • press & hold RESUME button, then press POWER button
  • continue to hold POWER then release RESUME button
  • Press RESUME Button 2x quick
  • Release both RESUME and POWER
  • Green light will now blink, then stop
  • With Green light on....press RESUME 4x
  • Push Power button to turn printer off
this should resolve the issue
remember to rate the solutions...anything less than FIXYA actually lowers my rank...I didn't make the system...just wanting everyone to understand the impact of their vote....so if you need further help...just ask....hope it fixya'd...if it did then rate please!

I have a Cannon i560 printer and the light on printer flashes five times orange then flashes green, what is the problem and how can I fix it.


5 flashes indicates a faulty printhead or possibly a problem with the p/head contacts. Try removing the head which is easier if you take the cartridges out first(no tools required) and re-seat it having checked the contacts for dirt.

If that doesn't work it may be that the waste ink tank is full. Try this ...
