I know the two canon's I have make some noise, but not like you describe.
Did it just start making this sound? Has it gotten worse or better? Has the print quality suffered?
Do all Canon printers make kind of a loud clickity clack noise for about 5-10 seconds when they start up? It almost sounds like the print head is jammed or something. My i9900 makes that noise if I let it sit for a few days without printing anything.
I've always assumed it's just cleaning the nozzle, and the first time it happened I was a little surprised. It's my first Canon printer, and none of my other printers ever made a noise like that.
I have had it for a little over a year now, and it prints reliably, but I just want to know what that sound is.
Thanks : )
