Please excuse my posting this here. Is there a better place for this or is such a question too far afield to post? I just don't know.
My issue is a Canon PIXMA G6020 All-in-One Mega Tank printer. I purchased it last October (2020) when my Epson printer died (after many many years of service).
I purchased the Canon because I had never been happy with the quality of photos being printed by the Epson. Unfortunately, this Canon has proved almost unusable for me over the past six months. It's a horribly depressing situation because no matter what I have done re help from Canon or anyone else has proved futile. I cannot get this printer to move easily between printing and scanning or copying. In fact, a lot of the time I cannot get it to print at all. The directions are confusing and there are few of them. By now, I think it is a hopeless situation. The fault is probably mine (as I am lead to believe at home) but that does not help.
My only solutions to this are: (1) buy a different all in one refillable tank printer, or (2) keep this printer since it does print excellent photos and buy a scanner/copier separately. I favor solution #2 because I have no idea what printer would fit my needs and still have a set of directions that I can follow.
I understand if this does not belong here, but I do not know what to do next. I can't continue the project I am working on without a printer/scanner.
(2) keep this printer since it does print excellent photos and buy a scanner/copier separately.
That is your best option, even if you get the bugs figured out.
If this printer makes excellent photo prints, then I would not be switching back and forth between copying, scanning, and back to printing --- plus the hassle of constantly switching paper type back and forth = always a chance of getting oily fingerprints on the photo paper or creasing it - and - there is always the likelihood that you may forget to remove the photo paper and print off a bunch of non-photo stuff on the last few sheets of photo paper that you have.
Whatever you get, make sure it is compatible with generic bulk ink.

On a poverty-level Kentucky budget, a 24-exposure roll of film would have two Christmases and a summer vacation on it and we might have to wait another six months before being able to afford developing the film.
I still have trouble remembering that it doesn't cost anything to take thousands of pictures; it just almost seems impossible to be true.
