Lousy imageCLASS MF269dw (Windows 11) Won't Print


I purchased an MF269dw to replace an old and reliable Brother laser printer that had finally, after many years of problem-free service, given up the ghost. I went with Canon because of its reputation for quality, in both printing and manufacturing.

Boy, was that a mistake!!

This stupid printer, at random intervals, simply refuses to print. Jobs sent from my Windows 11 desktop (via the WiFi interface) don't get printed. Yet there is no error condition showing on the printer. The energy saver light is often on in this case...but what kind of idiot engineer designs an energy-saving system that >>doesn't<< wake up when it receives a print job?!? That kinda sorta defeats the entire purpose of having a printer with an "energy saving" feature!!!

If anyone knows how to fix this piece of junk so that it keeps me from spending more time fighting with it to do its job than having it actually do its job I'd appreciate it.
