Brand New Canon Pixma Pro 100 Broken

Hi All,

I ordered the Pro 100 from Amazon a couple of days ago and it arrived today.  After assembling the printer head and ink cartridges, I got a constant yellow warning light, blinking twice every few seconds. The printer would not print and I kept getting a screeching sound coming from the head area.  The error message said to check for any obstructions and if none were found to a Canon service centre to get the printer repaired !!!

Not good for a £400 printer I am afraid.  I bought this printer to replace my lightly used Canon ip4600 that broke after just 1.5 years.  I realise that these are mass produced items but I have not had two much luck with Canon printers in the past either.  My i9100 had a broken printer after just few months.

The replacement Pro 100 should arrive by Monday.  Fingers crossed!!!

Cheers

Reza
