Re: cannon pixma ip3300 printer

I have a Epson Stylus photo printer that I keep turned off . I turn it on only when I want to print something which is seldom.From a cold start mine takes over the  two moinutes going through some sort of routine.  I have had and used this printer through three sets of ink and it has always been this way. My other realy old Tractor feed "pin printer" I turn on and print as soon as it as it starts. I think the new printers warm up and go through that routine. I believe it to be normal, Yes.    Even if it is on it stll take much more time that the ribbon one.

The printer head is my be block. In these situation you need to wash the printer head with cleaner., and the same time push some amonia solution with the seringe through the black ink output pin gentaly. Then re assamble and turn on the printer .
I think You may rid from your problem.

Canon Pixma iP3300 printer

Problem solved. press and hold the RESUME button on the printer (just below the power button) until the power button flashes green three times. Release the RESUME button and the paper roller will automatically clean itself. Do this twice and it should work perfectly.
