Canon Inkjet Fax repair/replacement

Canon PrintheadLast week my office inkjet printer and fax died, or so I thought. It was a multi-function unit that tripled as an inkjet printer, fax and scanner — Canon MultiPASS MP730. I spent a few hours cleaning, Googling for tips on how to fix it and eventually ordered a $50+ printhead. I also called a local-ish Canon repair facility but they wanted $75 to look at it. After realizing the downtime, the drive or shipping that I was going to entail and the fact that it was no longer a new model, I decided to look at new simpler products.

Canon, after realizing I was disappointed in their tech support, offered me a voucher to purchase a new machine with free shipping … so I did. This time I bought a one purpose stand alone fax machine that would replace the all-in-one machine.

Fast forward a couple days: The part, that was not available locally, arrived (printhead) as did the new discounted Canon Fax JX200. Since my old machine was still on the desk, I popped in the new part and voilà … the old fax worked fine. Hmm.

So I’m stuck with a new still in box discounted Canon JX200 fax machine … unopened. Any interest …. make an offer before I put it on Ebay or try to return it.
