How clever I am as well as being potty.

I tried to print photos a few weeks back and just had yellow and black photos so gave up. I tried cleaning, deep cleaning but no joy with other colours. This morning I thought I´d look on the internet to see if there was a remedy before forking out for a new printer.

Easy peasy, only needed a bit of kitchen towel, job done, all is well [tango_face_grin]
Another demo advised printing something at least once a week using all colours, thats also easy, just print a photo, smallest size you can make.

[tango_face_grin] Who´s a clever old gal then [tango_face_wink]

I’ve got 2 printers, the small one now doesn’t do Bluetooth and so it’s had to be hardwired. My big monster do all printer is so old there is not a driver for it (it’s a known problem so no point suggesting go looking) nd I have to create on PC , send it to the old laptop and then pr8nt from that.

Pr8nters are a pain if not in use all the time. I just never get around to printing anything any longer

Other than drivers, I've never had any problems with laser printers, since the late 80s

I often print stuff.
online bank statements for a start.
The HP photo-smart is a lovely little printer 
but
the first one went wrong and had to be returned and they sent me what I thought was a new one, turns out they send a reconditioned one which also went wrong, then the next and finally the next so I gave up with photo smart. Bought this cannon almost 3 years ago and this was the first trouble.
What I learnt with the photo smart was always get the refund not a replacement and then start again with the order.
