     I do not recall saying it was a paxama it is a PIXMA MG2900 series 
printer & scanner...I also am not a guru, and for what I have learned 
over the years, most I have forgotten...Age here is now 74 and I can't 
remember alot of commands that I use to know...
So I am in need of  some help...I have used HP printers and they all 
have worked fine, this  is the first time trying this Canon...

Thanks Larry;-)
