I seem to be having a strange problem printing with my Canon BJC 240 printer.
 when trying to print graphics from PSP or Photo suite etc. often times it will print what appear to be random text. With anything I try to print  it will often print part way down the page, then it will  A) print nothing for a few lines, then continue printing the graphic, or B)   spit the page out and continue on another page. other times it will print part way down then I will get the error mssg. stating the printer is out of paper, even though there is plenty of paper. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer, updated drivers and even took the printer in for warranty service where I was told the printer was working fine. Canon support told me it was a windows problem. I am running a Packard Bell 150 mhz.  with Win.95 OSR2  32 meg. ram  h.d. has 882 mb. free space. also have a scanner between printer port and printer. (tried hooking printer alone but problem still continued)......thanks for any help you can offer

Maybe your printer port is setup as ECP, some of the Canon printers are not completely compatible with ECP. You should try setting your port as either EPP or SPP.
Canon also provide a patch for this problem but good luck if you can get it to work. It is available from http://www.canon.com.au/Driver/Win95DRV.htm.

I have it set to EPP, I had contacted Canon and was informed by them that it was a windows problem, I hate the thought of having to reinstall windows.......
