I hAVE A PIXMA2500...

I hAVE A PIXMA2500 ALL IN ONE CANON. When I push button to start. It does not start. I have the orange button under it which is on.

Technician's Assistant: What Canon model do you have?

Pretty sure it is a 2500

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Canon printer?

Almost a week. It was ok last week when I was scanning, but then I got a messahs :black ink almost full?

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the Operating System (OS) on the computer or device you're printing from?

Don't know what that is so --never

Technician's Assistant: The Printer Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

No thanks
