The number of orange flashes between green flashes indicates the type of error, as outlined below. Check the cause and take the appropriate action. Two flashes: Out of paper, paper jam or paper feed error Replace the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button. If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam and press the RESUME/CANCEL button. Three flashes: Paper jam If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, replace the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button. Four flashes: Empty ink tank One of the ink tanks is empty. Replace it. If all of the above won't help, unplug the printer from the power cable, wait a while, and plug in. If that didn't fix you, I guess it's time to get in touch with canon, or a repair lab you trust. Good luck

Cannot get my canon to respond. Has worked fine in the past. I push to bring online and the light still blinks yellow.

Your machine does a longer green flash and then a series of orange flashes and then green again. I need to know how many orange flashes between the greens to tell you the problem..

My canon s520

The user guide for that product says that 7 flashes means the printhead is defective and that you should contact Canon's customer care. If you've recently replaced the print cartridge(s), try putting the old one(s) back in. If the printhead is truly defective, there may be no choice but to contact Canon or replace the printer.
