Question about Canon Printers & Copiers
SOURCE: Canon PIXMA iP4200 won't print
I solved the problem (I hope more than temporarily) by going out and buying a new yellow ink cartridge. The new one seems to be working, but the cartridge that generated the error message was brand new, too - hardly a satisfactory outcome. I worked out that buying a new cartridge would be slightly cheaper than signing up for one of the Canon support plans. As you can guess, this experience does not augur well for me buying more Canon products in future.
