Question about Canon BJC S300 InkJet Printer
First half of a text line is print correctly but second half of the same line is not printing correctly. It is printing with overlapping text. (Overlapping on first half as well second half)
How old is the printer? try to go to the print options and do a realignment of the print heads. if its an old printer possible might need to clean the print head if that didnt work maybe bad print head.... take it to the pro. good luck!
