Now it is the damn printer

I have to print some documents and get them in the post in a few days.  I go to turn the printer on and it won't stay on.  Of course there is nothing on this because the damn printer manufacturers don't care.  Everything today is junk, made in Mexico or China with the damn cheapest parts they can use.  This started with that areshole Bill Clinton and continued with that arsehole Bush and every damn president that came behind them.  Trump ran around telling how he was going to get tough on China but he caved or was just lying.  Tucker Carlson has been exposing the threat from China but he also found out that Congress is in bed with the damn Chinese.  Even Hollywood.  China is hacking into government computers and have stole just about every secret the US has and the damn Democrats keep yelling about Russia.  I wish someone would shove Russia up the Democrats collective arses.

I don't have the money to buy a printer so I will have to make a 32 mile round trip to my sister's house to get the documents printed.

    After a lot of searching and going deep into the level of search pages; I will go 10 deep without hesitation if I need something, I found a service manual for the printer.  My guess is that the power supply board went out on the printer.  Looking at the manual, you have basically got to disassemble the whole printer to get to the power supply board.  Not sure if it is worth it.  I really need a printer to handle documents in my work.  Colour laser printers are out of the question as they are too expensive.

    I need ink for my old printer, but I keep putting off buying ink for it. I just know the moment I spend the big bucks, the darn thing is going to croak. Hope you can get figured out what is going on with your printer.

    I found the manual.  Nothing in it about printer turning on, then turning back off.  I guess another item to take to the landfill.  You can't repair these junk printers.  I had to toss another printer because the ribbon cable broke.  What I would like if I had the money would be a nice colour laser printer.  Ink jets are horrible printers; they are nice when they are new but they quickly develop problems.  I had purchased a head cleaning kit for this printer but hadn't used it yet.

    I hate damn printers.  I'd rather go back to "old-timey" typewriters, rather than have to fuss with damn printer cartridges.

      technology is not always great..and when folks can see a very legitimate design fail with out a lot of hard thought..makes you wonder if all it is ,is about a damned quick buck for a product..has always been my theory so ..THE old type writers were the thing for shur..ink was cheap and they barely b roke down.lol..

      Yes, and the ink is a rip-off.  I buy the after market inks when possible.  I have two other printers in the shed but the ink is too expensive for them.  My sister gave me this CX7800 because I could get cheaper inks.  I printed with it earlier in the week without any issues.  Now it just keeps turning off.  The old printers were more reliable but they don't make drivers for them.  With Linux, it is easier to get old printers to work.  I am going to see if I can add a parallel port to my Linux box and get an old Canon printer to work.
