Maybe your printer is like V'ger. It saw what you were trying to print, and broke the connection to stop it from happening. It wants you to merge with it. Become one with the printer, Monty. It'll be a brave new world.

So that shot where V'ger lady walks through the metal wall is a direct homage to the woman walking through the wall in Solaris, right?

PS - Don't merge with the printer, I imagine it would be an uncomfortable conversation with your doctor.

Tried your method with holding the stop button and the start button, then pressing the stop button twice, but it didn't work.

We love you, Monty, if you can get out near Billerica I will take a look at your printer for you.

Maybe take the file to Kinkos or some other printer place and have them do it for $0.25?

The whole point of owning a printer is NOT HAVING TO LEAVE THE HOUSE.

You know he works at a grocery store, right?

Monty, my guess is along with Chris that your printer hit it's time and purposefully started to not work, the only way to 'fix' that is to do a reset, like the double secret reset, otherwise it will just continue to not work.

Otherwise . . . if the issue does lay with your computer, what kind of phone do you have, or other computer type thing? You can install an app that connects to that printer. Do you have anything to try that on?

Tell me where to get an inkjet printer, because this shit's getting chucked in the dumpster. I have to print out some DVD covers for Christmas presents within the next month, and I don't have time to dick around with this BULLSHIT.

At the printer store.

And, yes, you definitely have time to dick around with this shit.

What is your current address, both home and work, and what theater do you normally go to?

There is a Staples about 3.5 miles from your place, or a Best Buy about 0.75 miles from the Dedham Showcase and a Staples about 1.5 miles from there, or just get it delivered.

But anyway, if you do a little more searching you can probably find the reset code that will work.


Try this...

Code:
Hard Reset

A persistent Canon printer error calls for a hard reset. The process is easy, and it returns the printer to the factory default settings. Locate the "Stop" button and hold it down until the printer alarm sequence begins. Release the button after the alarm flashes 19 times to restore the factory default settings. It also erases any custom network settings. Uninstall the printer from your computer network and reinstall for a fresh start. It acts as a newly installed printer with the original settings.



Since I do not have your printer, I can not try them myself.

Why would you be printing DVD covers for Christmas presents?

Because I re-gift the DVD copies from Blu combo packs to my various family members, and want them to look semi-professional. I have no need for the DVD copies, and my family members have a "good enough" attitude towards DVD, so it's win-win.

I assume you have been standing over your printer this entire time, occasionally tapping it on the side, waiting a few seconds, grumbling, "Fuck!": REPEAT(0)

Ironically, in BASIC, you have to use the print command to display "Fuck!"

10 set device("printer") to=1
20 if device("printer")=0 goto 30, else end
30 print "fuck!"
40 go to 30

I haven't programmed BASIC in 30 years, but print/go to is stuck in my head forever.

AHHH, I see your issue, Monty, you either need to turn on your printer, or you have commented out line 10.

Don't stick your dick in there.

Dude I would print your shit, but if you're wanting them before Xmas, I am not sure I have the time to properly ship them as they would require a DO NOT BEND type of packaging and walking into a Post Office.

I think you should make limited edition "stick figure theatre" covers, instead of trying to print some internet hack job cover. A sharpie and your imagination can do wonders.

Printed out a couple of pics today...but I need to keep it plugged into the USB port, which is a pain-in-the-ass. Still, enough to spruce up my Christmas movies.
