Summary: After several years of seldom use, it eventually just stopped printing completely. At first I thought it was the ink, so I replaced all the ink. Then I thought the ink had dried on the nozzle, so I thoroughly cleaned it.
Summary: Purchased this item about 1-1/2 years ago....worked great...loved it....BUT now will not print whole documents..starts off good for the first 2-3 lines than goes spotty....Purchased a new print head..worked for one or two printings...than went spotty again...Canon says...need to get a new printer.
Summary: My experiences with the Canon S330 have been similar to those of other reviewers here. My S330 worked really well for the first 1-1/2 years, and then the print heads began to fail. The print was fuzzy and ugly horizontal lines appeared. Cleaning the print nozzles did't help.
Summary: I have had mine for almost 2 years, and it has stopped printing black ink. Obviously time for a replacement, grrr. I never was completely happy with the unit. It constantly goes into a lengthy cleaning cycle before it prints.
Summary: This is a review based on the S300 printer, which appears to be nearly identical to the S330 except for the swoosh on the front panel. I bought an S300 for my MIL based on excellent reviews and the small ink tanks being appropriate for her light use.
