LCD - no backlight?

Greetings; New PIXMA G7020 printer, everthing working so far except there is no backlight for the LCD? Have to use a flashlight to view the dispaly. Was the printer designed like this? Is there a setting to turn a backlight on? Or is it broken?

Thanks,

Techmike

Hi techmike,

 

The display of the PIXMA G7020 is not backlit.

This response is incorrect as stipulated in the manual which also states that it can be "dimmed.". You can't even read it w/o a backlight.

Boy was I wrong!! I can't believe Canon is selling this when you can't read the lcd in normal household light. Wow. What a rip-off. Anyone figure out a solution other than a flashlight next to the unit?

I ended up mounting a sewing machine lamp on the same shelf as the printer. Crazy to have to do that in order to operate a modern printer. I never expected such a basic requirement to have been overlooked by Cannon. Other wise a great printer, with much ink included in the box.
