Sounds like it's a sensor fault with the auto sheet feeder - but this is part guess work based on the error code list in the Service Manual.

See if we get any Canon experts turning up.

According to the manual, it's something to do with the print head. Can you check if it's properly seated, and clean?

With a print head error there's no green light (and you should get an error message on the connected PC), this sounds like there's green and amber LEDs lit & flashing

Can you get it into Service Mode (See p 1-15) and run a Service Print?  It's a little tricky - basically don't let go of the power button until you've let go of the Cancel button when you get alternate green and amber flashing press Cancel once when the green LED is lit.  That should force a self-test print job and an EEPROM diagnostics printout.  It's that you're looking for.

Do you have the sheet feeder attached?  Does it look OK (no recent knocks?)
