Re: Possible software problem?
I don't remember a little camera light on the control panel of my 6110 (though there is a little telephone light on the left side that usually indicates the fax/modem line is in use), but it sounds more like an electrical fault. I suppose you could try to replace the power cord and power supply, but my guess is that the fault is intermal. You're most likely looking at taking the printer in for service. Good luck.

Assuming that you haven't put the camera into a mode in which flash is disabled, either the charging capacitor or flash bulb is defective. It will have to be serviced so the appropriate part can be replaced.
It sounds like a driver problem. Unplug the printer from the power and computer. Uninstall the drivers completely and then use the original disc that came with the printer to reinstall everything. Leave on automatic updating.
It is possible that you have the camera on an inappropriate setting. For example, if you are outside during the day and your camera is set to AUTO, there is little chance for the flash to go off because the camera doesn't need the extra light. If you want to force your camera to flash, set it to a mode other than AUTO and then turn on the flash. Good luck!
The flash light intensity can be adjusted between +3 and –3.
The light intensity adjustment must be set to ON in the custom setup operation (page 61). • The indicator appears in the control panel.
Turn dial B to select a light intensity adjustment value in the following steps. (This selection is also possible with dial A.)
0 → +0.3 → +0.7→ +1.0 ... +3.0
0 → –0.3 → –0.7→ –1.0 ... –3.0
The display shows the light intensity adjustment value except when the value is 0, in which case the display does not show the light control range.
If the camera’s flash adjustment mode is selected, the actual flash light intensity will be the total of the light intensity adjustment value set on the FL-50 and that set on the camera. The light intensity adjustment value displayed is that of the FL-50 only.

Unfortunately it does not give any possible solutions for blinking lights.
The user guide on the other hand does. You can download this under Downloads -> Product / Software Manuals
Here is a summary of what the flashing lights could mean:
Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error
Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
Three flashes: Paper jam
If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
See Paper Jams
Six flashes: No print head installed
Install a print head.
Seven flashes: Print head is defective
Contact the Customer Care Center.
Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
Ink used for cleaning is absorbed in the waste ink absorber placed in the printer. Eight flashes indicate that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so that you can continue printing.
Important If this error occurs, replacement of the waste ink absorber and maintenance of the printer are required. Canon recommends to contact the Customer Care Center as soon as possible. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible.
Nine flashes: Ink tank is not installed properly
Open the print head cover and press the button of the ink tank and reinstall the ink tank properly.
Ten flashes: Battery level is low
Charge the battery. For details on how to charge the battery, refer to the manual supplied with the battery.
Eleven flashes: A specified period of time has lapsed without receiving a response from the digital camera or digital video camcorder / The digital camera or digital video camcorder connected is not compatible with this printer
Disconnect the camera cable, press the printer's RESUME/CANCEL button and reconnect the cable. If the error is still unresolved, there is a possibility that you are using a digital camera or digital video camcorder that is not supported by this printer. Use digital cameras or digital video camcorders that are compatible with this printer.
POWER lamp flashes alternate green and orange:
An error that requires contacting the Customer Care Center may have occurred.
Disconnect the printer cable from the printer, and then turn the printer off and unplug the printer from the power supply. Plug the printer back in and turn the printer back on after leaving it about 10 minutes.
If the problem remains, contact the Customer Care Center.
Sorry the manual doesn't help much either... this is what it says, "POWER lamp flashes alternate green and orange Turn the printer off and unplug
the printer from the power supply. Plug the printer back in and turn the printer
back on. If the problem remains, contact
a Canon service representative."
You could try the following reset code which works when reseting after emptying the waste ink tank:
Turn off printer 2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button. 3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume
button go. 4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH
buttons go. 5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking. 6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume
button 4 times. 7. Press the Power button and the printer should
turn off, if not, press the Power button once more. 8. Your printer should respond as normal.
