All Clogged Up...


I've been on a trip through modern TECH HELL when I discovered that my 3 month old Canon Pro9000 has developed a problematic print head! BUGGERALL! I just went through this same scenario last summer... and wound up having to buy a new printer. Now the NEW one won't print right!

I spent most of the weekend doing cleaning cycles, popping out the printhead, soaking it in hot water, spraying the print head with Windex, searching online support forums... etc.

All to no avail...

I am of the opinion that inkjet printers are becoming more and more UNRELIABLE with each new generation of progress. My old Epson PhotoStylus still prints without any problems after almost 10 years of mosting sitting around... not even being used in the hot summers that would usually bake shut most modern inkjet printheads.

UGH!

p.s. Oh, and the bathtub drain is totally clogged too. So I spent all of Sunday afternoon snaking that, pouring down Drano, snaking some more, plunging it with the plunger for hours on end.
This morning I discovered a cleanout drum in the basement... so that's what I'm doing this morning!

In otherwords, everything in my life is currently CLOGGED UP!
But I'm still laughing about it all....

Two trips to the plumbing store and I still can't get that blasted drump trap cover off! I'm glad I'm not a plumber...

When you said your Canon Pro9000 had a clogged print head, I naturally tied the photo you posted with your printing problem. But, then I read farther and realized your printer probably doesn't have a crawlspace.
