I hope someone can help! I had the five blinking lights on the Canon ip3000 and I cleaned the printhead to new shape and it still won't fix! It's weird, when I completely remove the printhead, the printer stops blinking orange, but as soon as I put it back in, even without the ink cartridges, it starts blinking again and won't proceed. Anyone know what I should do?!
