Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer
It's a sign of a dying printer. My guess is that it is a plastic gear skipping or missing teeth. I've had several inkjet printers with this issue, but how long it will continue to work after hearing this can't be gauged.I had one printer that lasted almost 2 years after it began to "snap"... Another printer died in just a few weeks. What will end up happening is the printer will most likely throw an error up, and that's when it's toast. If it were a more expensive printer, it might be worth fixing, but this model can be purchased for less than $80.
There's a reason those printers are only $60 - $80. For your next printer, I suggest reading a LOT of online user reviews, especially if you are going to go cheap. There's nothing wrong with going cheap, but you have to be even more careful. When I buy printers, I even read the reviews for the ink cartridges it takes, just to see how long they really last.
