 I don't remember when I bought this latest Canon printer, but about two weeks ago, it decided not to print. I called technical support and described the problem. The technician gave me the choice of taking it to one of their repair places, or simply replacing the machine.

After looking at replacement printers online, I came to the conclusion that it would be cheaper to buy a new printer then to try to repair the old one. So I ordered an upgraded piece of equipment. It showed up a few days later, and appeared to be working beautifully. But when I tried to copy something, it wouldn't do it. Back to tech support.  After testing a few things, the tech said it was not a good piece of equipment and to send it back.

In the meantime, I had seen in the literature they had sent, that some models printed directly on CD's. That intrigued me, someone I called sales, I asked about it. Yes, they had printers that did that. The short story is that I upgraded and now has a printer that, prints, fax's, and is supposed to print on CD's. All the hardware and software is there, but I cannot get it to work. So when I finish this blog, I will be back to Canada technical support.

It's Christmas eve, and time for a bit of humor – –

The Usher:
An elderly woman walked into the local country church.
The friendly usher greeted her at the door and helped
her up the flight of steps. "Where would you like to
sit?" he asked politely.  "The front row please," she answered.  "You really don't want to do that," the usher said.  "The pastor is really boring."  "Do you happen to know who I am?" the woman inquired.  "No," he said.
"I'm the pastor's mother," she replied indignantly.
"Do you know who I am?" he asked.  "No," she said.
"Good," he answered.


  1. Sounds like it'll be a great machine when it's all over.

  2. Having a nice Christmas Eve except I bought the wrong kind of yeast for the cardamum bread. (Not fast acting but I got it to work.) Now hoping the dough rises. It's gonna be another late night, ha!

    Good luck getting a printer to work. Remember Seinfeld? "Serenity NOW!"
