Have searched online for a possible solution without any results.

You could ask a Canon technician if you click here there are 26 online at the time of this post.

for what the flashing lights mean... Do you have them sonewhere in your manual, or pdf on teh driver disc?

I would guess, if the printer has had soem significant use, that it's an error saying that the waste ink "pad" is full.

(If it's like my old Canon s630 the "pad" is a think sheet of felt like material that covers the whole of the bottom of the printer case. It said it was full when it could EASILY have taken 5 or 6 times as much ink!)

Assuming this is the problem you might be able to "reset" the counter using this method;

Obviously I make no promises as to what will happen!

Good luck!
