Hi. What did you do before it happens?
Please try this manual resetting of the printer.
Remove the USB cable into the printer and leave the printer on.
Remove all the cartridges.
Close the cartridge door and wait for the INSERT INK MESSAGE to appear.
Disconnect the power cable and from the power source supply.
Move the carriage using your hand from the original position to the other side of the printer and then move it back to original position. Wait for couple of minutes
Reconnect power cord and turn on the printer.
Return all the ink cartridges and close the door. Wait for the calibration process.
Print the test page to check if it working.
Reconnect the USB cable and try to print again.

If not try to clean the print head using a clean cloth with rubbing alcohol and then rub the print head into a plain paper with alcohol.

Hi! I've got same problem. Canon userguide says that 5 flashes means the print head is not installed/not properly installed, or it is defective.Not yet sorted problem out - new print-heads are expensive!

Go to the Canon Web site http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=232&modelid=8047 (may have to copy and paste into browser. I believe it is either a Print head (7 flashes) which will require repair/replacement of print head - or - a waste ink error that requires a reset. There are other posts on this site that explain how to get the printer into service mode to reset.

i80 Canon printer will not print. Printer head will not cycle when turned on. First the green light came on then the amber light would flash seven times, green flash once then back to amber flashing seven times. Now the green and amber flash simaltaniously seven times. What can I do.

This will only slightly help...my cannon printers waste tank was never actually full, there is just a built in counter system that figures when it might be getting to that point.
To reset the count before you cant print at all because of it:
A) Turn the printer off.
B) Press and hold RESUME, then press and hold the POWER button.
C) Release the RESUME button, Next press and release the RESUME button twice more while continuing to hold the POWER button). The printer's carriage will move a around a bit.
If by some miracle we did that correctly on the first try, you are now in "Service Mode".
D) Press the RESUME button 4 times (clear waste ink counter function). The light will change color with each key press. Press the POWER button to commit the change, and return to the top of the function selection menu. Press the POWER button again to restart the printer.
Now for to check the waste pad...(excerpt from http://www.neilslade.com/Papers/inkjetstuff11.html)

This according to the user's guide:
The remaining ink level cannot be correctly detected.
Replace the ink tank and close the Top Cover.
Printing with an ink tank that was once empty may damage the printer.
If you want to continue printing in this condition, you need to release the function for detecting the remaining ink level. Press and hold the RESUME/CANCEL button for at least 5 seconds, and then release it.
* With this operation, releasing the function for detecting the remaining ink level is memorized. Please be advised that Canon shall not be liable for any printer malfunction or damage caused by refilled ink tanks.
See Replacing an Ink Tank.
