Text Printing Problems (Canon S600)

by MikeH / April 6, 2005 2:46 PM PDT

I've had a Canon S600 printer for quite some time now and have never had any problems with it up until now. The printer will no longer print black text. It will print colored text and pictures but no black. I've tried two new ink cartridges, performed the auto and deep cleaning printer utilities, and tried cleaning it manually but nothing seems to fix the problem. Any thoughts on why this might be happening?

2 to 3 year printers.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / April 6, 2005 9:47 PM PDT

The printers in the consumer arena are working from 1 to 3 years and tend to develop a fault. Repair exceeds replacement costs so you replace the printer. Some can't accept this and spend a few months looking for some quickfix or cheap repair shop. I've seen this too often and just find out how old it is and if the usual SELF-TEST fails and its old enough a new printer is installed.

Canon S600 Text Printing Prob

I have an old S630 that has the same problem when used with WinXP. Driver upgrading and print head cleaning has not solved problem.

Did you ever get yours corrected?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
