After 3 very simple print jobs, this printer was down for the count. Inability to print anything. Alternating green-amber lights. I've troubleshooted and researched the corresponding technical error code: defect with printer - see retailer. Some printer. Not worth the risk is my advice.

win server 2003 won't recognize mp230
I like canon printerS due to the fact that never have had an issue intalling, printing, sharing printer and what not; however, my brand new canon mp230 won't install in my win server 2003 and I can not find drivers to fullfill our goal of shring this printer among my other terminals, now i like to know if drivers for win server are available at all... please let me know if so....

Resolution may vary based on printer driver setting. Color ink droplets can be placed with a horizontal pitch of 1/4800 inch at minimum.
Photo print speeds are based on the standard mode driver setting using photo test pattern(s) and select Canon Photo Paper. Print speed is measured as soon as first page begins to feed into printer and will vary depending on system configuration, interface, software, document complexity, print mode, types of paper used and page coverage. See www.usa.canon.com/printspeed for additional information.
ISO/IEC 24734, 24735 define the default print and copy speed measurement methods. Print speeds are the averages of ESAT in Office Category Test for the default simplex mode, ISO/IEC 24734, excluding time to print the first set. Copy speed is the average of FCOT, ISO/IEC 24735 Annex D. ADF copy speed is the average of ESAT in General Performance Test for the default simplex mode, ISO/IEC 24735, excluding time to copy the first set. See our www.usa.canon.com/ipm for additional details.
Based on accelerated testing by Canon in dark storage under controlled temperature, humidity and gas conditions, simulating storage in an album with plastic sleeves. Canon cannot guarantee the longevity of prints; results may vary depending on printed image, drying time, display/storage conditions, and environmental factors.
