I bought a Canon G1200 Pixma printer a while back and while I usually just print black & white documents, I print a few things in color maybe a few times a month. When printing any color graphic I often get poor color reproduction, and almost always get streaks of the wrong color all through the picture. When the printer was new I could go through the cleaning process a few times and eventually get an acceptable print. Nowadays I can go through two regular cleanings, the next step cleaning, and the final step big deal cleaning, and still get the streaks. I'm just so sick of it. I spent a lot of money on this thing, and my work looks awful. Is there something I'm missing here? Thanks.
My printer has already been "registered," which is just a marketing tool. And "support" at this point means paying extra for a phone call. In other words, useless. Sadly, the disappointment in Canon products that I've developed because of this printer's poor value and performance can only make future purchases unlikely. I thought maybe the "community" here would have experienced something similar and might suggest a solution I hadn't known about. If that's not the case, I'll make do with B&W printing until I absolutely need color printing capability again, or this printer fails altogether. And then I'll purchase a new printer from someone else. Meantime I definitely won't be purchasing a Canon printer for my kid to use at college.
