Printing problem with Canon iP2600

Just purchased the printer, followed the instruction to the T, the PC set up was easy and i can print sucessfully with black. However the colour comes out faint, looking like 50% of the true colour. Both ink cartridges were brand new.
Checked out the manual, done all i can on the trouble shooting, re-loaded the cartridges, done the head clean, changed my USB cable.
Still printed faint! Can't see how i can the setting for a richer print. I have set it on Vivid Photo as suggested but there is no difference in quality.
Anyone else had this problem?
Confer, the printer works prints black perfectly but not colour.

Appears to be a defective color cartridge. Verify the printing is not set to fast or draft.

I have a canon ip2600. Its pretty new. it leaves blanks where nouns or pronouns should be. Plus phrases. Names of magazines and people. Why would it do that? Hope you can help me. Thank you


It depends on what you are printing -- some web-pages put clickable "hyperlinks" on each noun, so that you can click on any of the nouns, to get more information.

Perhaps, your printer is trying to print each hyperlink in some colour, while the rest of the text is printed in BLACK.

Click Start
Click All Programs
Click Accessories
Click Notepad
Type a few words and phrases, including some nouns and names.
Click File
Click Print
Is that printed-page 100% black -- do the nouns print in black?

You can't reset the ink level on all Canon Pixma printers.You need to turn off the function on printer to show the ink level.On most printers this happen with push resume button and hold it for 5 seconds.
The printer shows empty cartridges but it will printing.
