Customer Question
I have a...

I have a pixma 2922 that the blinking orange light keeps blinking.. cant figure it out what to do to correct this... I guess I am a dinosaur

Technician's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old the Pixma is? And has this happened before?

Nope first time.. it is about 3 years old..

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

Pc and it is about 8 months old

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

Was printing with a lot of color.. noticed it was blinking but wanted to finish... thought it might be the color.. so I bought a new ink cartage

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the printer expert to know before I connect you?

I think that's it.. thanks

I understand that you have an orange blinking light. This is typical of an error on the ink. I also understand that you have purchased. Did you clean the ink cartridge before installation?

Have you held down the stop/reset button for 10 to 15 seconds?

Have you plugged the printer for 1 minute?

If I understand the issue, you have a pixma Canon 2922 with the orange light flashes three times and will not let you print.

Is the cover open when the printer is trying print?

Have you removed the rear tray and placed a flashlight in the paper tray?

Three flashing orange lights for this printer means one of two things.

1. paper jam in the rear paper tray, or in the machine

2. the cover is open or cracked open when trying to print
