I have a Canon S-800 Bubble-Jet Printer (from my Windows 2000 Professional days) that I never fully mastered. Anyway ? here?s the situation by the numbers:
1 - the S-800 has trouble feeding normal 8.5x11-inch paper when a print job is queued. I hear this loud repetitive - KER-CHUNK ? KER-CHUNK ? KER-CHUNK, etc ? and the paper just sits in the feeder bin and vibrates in place. I then get an ?out of paper? message. However, if I print an envelope I get the same KER-CHUNK sound ? but if I nudge the envelope along ? the printer usually accepts it and it prints out. How do I get regular 20-lb paper to feed reliably I wonder?
2 ? The S-800 also came with a thin, flat, roughly rectangular, plastic part (about 6-1/4 x 9-1/4 x 1/16 inches) that fits into the paper input bin. Yet there is no mention of this item in the documentation. I can supply a couple of .jpg?s showing this but need an e-mail address to send them). Does anyone have any idea what it?s for.
3 ? Since the S-800 is circa Windows 2000 I can no longer re-install the program since I?ve been using Windows XP Pro Professional for a while.
Before I opt for an entirely new color printer ? I?m hoping to resolve the above problems. Can anyone assist directly or through referral?
