I have a canon pixma iP4500 which stopped printing. The orange

Resolved Question:

I have a canon pixma iP4500 which stopped printing.   The orange light is flashing 5 times.   I have removed the print head once and put it back but this has made no difference.   Does this mean that it needs a new print head and if so what is the cost of a new print head

As you have described the error light flashing orange 5 times it indicates the print head problem.
Reseat the Print Head and ink tanks
remove the print head and try to clean it with the isopropyle alcohol all you need to do is drop the alcohol in the holes which head pulls the ink from the tanks after cleaning if no success then you have to replace the head.

here is the details of the printer head part # XXXXX price
