Hi guys and gals!

I was having some major issues with my ... up until now ... fauless Canon i965.

1) It seriously clips the paper at the end of the picture when printing borderless prints, often fraying the paper edges and making an inky mess along the edges (2cm in).


2) The CD printing tray has given up the ghost - a mechanical issue I guess needing a repairman, but it takes the tray in, makes a grinding sound, then spits it out insisting the tray isn't loaded right, or not using printable labels. Had no issues with that before recently.

3) Most annoyingly, it prints really, really, really slowly. It used to print fast, but now it likes to sit and think about a print job for a while before it has a go at doing something about it, and then it slowly does one band at a time; gradually it will speed up to full speed, sometimes slowing down then speeds up again.

I have messed about ith spool settings and they make no odds; I even printed off a draft quality letter - boy did that take a long time ... it used to spit out draft letters really fast.

Conclusion - I had none of these issues up until recently. The printer is 18mths old.

Can anyone help a litle damsel in distress?

:thumbsup:

Thanks you all. :flowers:

Hello Canon i965 owner and welcome to BC.

Canon i965 Support can be found here, but it sounds to me like that printer just needs a serious cleaning.

I've had the printer in-and-out of a repair centre too often, and it still prints slowly; now the repair folks are saying it could be my PC - and in the same breath saying they'll have another look at it!!!

The CD tray simply wont function correctly, and the printer has had very little use, and is only a little over 12mths old.

It is most annoying :thumbsup:

The only thing that could possibly be computer related to the problems you describe is an excess of temp files clogging your virtual memory. Give Ccleaner a run and that will remove that possibility. Let us know what that finds in MB to delete. Don't do anything with the issues tab unless you have a specific registry issue you are trying to resolve.
