Question about Canon Pixma iP2600 Photo InkJet Printer
1. Orange "problem light flsashes alternately with green activity light. 2. When print command is initiated a dialog box opens with label: Canon iP2600 series - USB001 Message: An ink cartridge is not installed properly, make sure the inkl cartridge is installed properly, and close the cover. When I follow these insrtructions and close the cover, it sounds like the printer reconects with the B&W and color cartridges--there is a pause between the two resets. The first cartridge reset (I assume B&W) gets a green light and after the second, the orange trouble light is activated.
Could be a faulty ink cartidge.. try a different one if you have a spare... or even put the old one in, and see if the mesage changes to empty cartridge,,,

You can try this it works for my 1500 printer.
Go to the printer settings and turn off the ink low messages.
Switch your printer on and hold the paper feed switch down for the count of five the orange light should flash. Then switch off the power and switch back on again the green light should stay steady. If you do not come right on this one you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

All of the newer printers have ink tanks that are 'chipped out', meaining that you can't just refill a tank with a syringe like in the olden days. If the printer reads the 'chip' on that tank and it says it's empty - it won't work even though there is ink in it.
Some refill places just put ink back into used tanks, but DO NOT have a chip re-setter, so the printer does not either: 1) recognize the tank, or 2) thinks it is still empty.
I have had very, very good luck with an on-line company called ABCINK.com for my Canon MX700. A five pack ( 2 Black carts. and one each of cyan, magenta and yellow) costs me only $18.95 delivered w/shipping. Genuine CANON carts. would have been almost $100.
Your Canon 300 is older than dirt. I know, I had one. Try another ink tank or attempt to CLEAN the print heads and nozzles. But really, I bought one of these old dinosaurs for $30 bucks 10 years ago, so you may want toss this 'boat anchor', because as soon as you, and if you, can get it back up and running - something else will fail.
Go drop $60 on a brand new 4-in-one printer that scans in documents & pictures, can scan in a printed page and convert it to a Word doc using OCR (Optical Character Recognition), makes copies, prints from your computer and has an Automatic Document Feeder and Reader so that you can load up 50 pages to copy, scan or whatever. (Also, it might be time to replace that old Penty 3 processor. FWM, Freekin' Wal-Mart has some ****-Jimdy 15.6 laptops for $325 - $350 out the door with tax and a whole ONE year warranty.)
DO NOT BUY A H-*** MACHINE. THEY ARE JUNK. THEY ALL OVERHEAT & JUST RECENTLY THEY QUIT MAKING THEM. REMEMBER THAT COMCRAP (COMPAQ) GOT BOUGHT BY H-***, SO NO **** FROM COMCRAP EITHER.)
??? SAVY ???
