Canon MP470 printer problem

Bought machine in late Oct07 at Staples. Just opened the box after settlement w/ Canon over $50 rebate. Got it up and running. Prints OK, but black ink spot on every page in the same spot, about 2" in from LHS and 1/3 of the way down. It is odd-shaped, about the size of a fat pencil eraser. It is there, whether using black or color print button. I looked at black cartridge, no other excess ink. Pls help.

I think your printer requires a little servicing. Those spots are usually caused by a dirty gamma wire, and probably the fuser is requiring a replacement. Both tasks can be done on-site, but require a little knowledge of the printer internal parts.

Need direction in installing a new printer cartridge in my MP470 printer.

You can find instructions and images on how to replace an ink cartridge in the Canon MP470 user manual, page 46 to 50. You will need Adobe Reader in order to be able to view the manual.

I just bought a Canon Pixma MX700, can't find serial no. for rebate

You need the UPC code for a rebate. You won't find that on the printer itself. It's on the box that the printer came in, usually one of the flaps or on an end panel. Most rebates require that you cut out this square (it says Secondary Proof of Purchase and has the code in it) from the box and mail it with the rebate (that's to keep people honest, I guess). According to a rebate coupon I found for the MX700, it should be a 12-digit (all numeric) code.
I'm not that old a Marine. I retired from the Marines 20 years ago, but once a Marine always a Marine (we make an exception for Lee Harvey Oswald).
