I purchased a Canon PIXMA MG2922 printer as a backup. Never been opened. Never been taken out of the Canon PIXMA MG2922 box. Never been used. Just sat up in a closet.
One of my trusted printers failed to operate so I decided to open my Canon PIXMA MG2922 backup.
The printer will not initialize.
Everything is checked out paper, ink cartridges, door closed, unpacked properly, and made sure all of the packing tape and plastic pieces were removed.
When I plug the printer power cord into the wall outlet (various outlets), the only thing that happens is the Alarm light is solid orange. That's it. The printer should be making noise (loud) according to videos.
When you push the power button, the power light is solid green and the alarm light is solid orange.
I have tried numerous methods of resetting this printer and everyone has failed.
I know it's an inexpensive printer but, Canon come on. How about some Quality Control.
Thanks for any help.

Since I have received NO HELP regarding this subject, I have decided to throw out the BRAND NEW Canon PIXMA MG2922. This was a waste of money and time.
I am unable to determine the cause especially with it never been used. I was thinking about purchasing a working used Canon PIXMA MG2922 and swapping out the circuit board and / or ribbon cables but, why bother.
Canon, I will never purchase one of your products again.
I hope someone reads this message and stays away from Canon printers.
Thanks for posting!
