APPLE STYLEWRITER 2400 POOR QUALITY

I have a number of problems with this printer as listed below:

1. The combined ink cartridge keeps leaking so that all three colours now look black (it's a brand new cartridge and not refilled)

2. The print quality is sooooooo poor and the clean up option seems to help very little.

3. To get any sort of printout that is recognisable, you need to print on best all the time, otherwise white lines are more frequent than black dots!!!!

4. Now the question, I am asuming that the printer heads have now finally reached their "peak" and are slowly going to that grand old printer heaven in the sky. If I was to buy a whole new colour outfit (the holder as well as the individual black and colour cartridges) would the canon model, which cartridges' fit with the apple,  fit with the interface that is already fixed to the printer, or do I need to buy an Apple printer head????

Any ideas to this question or any of the above would be most gratefully received.

Your Question :
Now the question, I am asuming that the printer heads have now finally reached their "peak" and are slowly going to that grand old printer heaven in the sky. If I was to buy a whole new colour outfit (the holder as well as the individual black and colour cartridges) would the canon model, which cartridges' fit with the apple,  fit with the interface that is already fixed to the printer, or do I need to buy an Apple printer head????

My Answer :

The answer is YES.  The only difference betwen the Canon And Apple model is the apple talk connecter, and some revisions on the main board ROM. The printer mechanism is identical.

It also sounds like your purge unit needs replacing - when you clean your heads and some automated processes - use ink it goes into this high density pad.  when it gets full (after quite a long while), it needs to be replaced.  It would also account for some of your probs. Any Canon service agent can do it, Apple will charge you a bit more for the same job - I suspect (as they usually do).

I worked for canon in their systems devision for many years,  - I used to train CASAs - (Canon Authorised Service Agents).
