It appears that Canon is using an outfit "Just Answer" to deal with product problems. In January I emailed from Australia to get help downloading the software for a Pixma MG3600 printer. After spending $200AUD and a lot of time on emails and waiting for the technicians to reply, I received no help at all. To add insult to injury they billed me for a $60 "membership" which I certainly did not authorise. I recognise there are difficulties with different time zones, but the two technicians I contacted by email failed to get back to me - despite my arranging a time for the second one to call, which was certainly daytime in California. I think you should investigate the performance of Just Answer because it could give Canon - a highly respected company - a bad name.
Dear Mr. Adachi:
After repeated attempts with your marketing department to fix an email problem, I am letting you know I am unable to look at, review and possible purchase products you sell.The problem manifests in that I can not read the emails they send to me. They come to me with BLANK content. I have asked that they include a LINK that says:
"If you are having trouble viewing this email, select this link to view it in your READER.
One whole year has passed, and I send your email(s) to my trash folder. Please have someone resolve this problem - I can not be the only one having this problem.
I am using Window's 7, Firefox (64) - latest version.
Thank you for you time and efforts.
I am writing you to bring to your attention the lack of customer service I experience with Canon lately. My wife & I just had our first child, which caused me to want to upgrade to a new camera. Since I was a young boy my family has always owned Canon cameras. I can remember taking some of my first pictures with an EOS 650. So naturally, when it came time to buy a new camera I just went to canon first.
So I placed my order online Dec 26th and I got my email confirmation so I thought everything was fine. I went in yesterday to find out that Canon just canceled my order without any communication to me. This was due to my gift card not having the 50 dollars because Canon already charged a penny. So without giving me a chance to correct the situation my order was canceled without any warning to me. This issue comes when I call customer support to resolve this issue they said I cant order the item anymore. So I am left without a product because Canon decided to cancel my order due to an error they created. When given a chance to correct they did nothing. So my hours of research on cameras and price were for nothing. However what makes me most upset is the time I am missing taking pictures of my first newborn child.
I am very disappointed in my recent interaction with Canon and feel as if I have been failed by the company I have grown up on. I feel as I might have to look at other options. I really did not want to go down that path but with little resolution from your company, I feel as I have to so I don't miss precious moments of my child. I also don't think I can promote a company that does not care about their loyal customers. As an FYI I have listed my order number below so hopefully, other customers don't have to follow the same fate as me. Thank you for your time.
Order Number: 138728331
Very disappointed found out Christmas that I will not be getting my order per customer service item is discontinued "no longer" available. This is the original e-mail I received at that time item was in stock and Canon even did a soft check on my bank account. Why was I not notified!! I sat in horror because it was a gift and if I had know I would not receive it i would have continued to shop around for one. And to insult me with a different camera bundle for 599.00 with 10% of ??? Iwould never ever recommend Canon to anyone. First time customer, last time customer.
Order Number: 1386xxxxx
We appreciate your business and we look forward to providing you with the same high level of customer service and support you have come to expect from Canon.
Your order number 1386xxxxx has been received.

MY HUSBAND BOUGHT ME A VIXIA HF R8OO CAMCORDER FOR MY BIRTHDAY - DELIVERED 26TH JULY.
THIS IS A FAUTLY PRODUCT. I RETURNED IT AND WAS TOLD YOU DO NOT REPAIR "CHEAP" CAMERAS!!!!
THE SCREEN REFLECTD MY Face LIKE A MIRROR AND I COULD NOT CLEARLY SEE WHAT I WAS RECORDING/ THE SUPPORT TEAM RETURNED IT WITH THE BACKLIGHT DARKENED - MADE IT EVEN MORE DIFFICULT TO SEE WHAT I WANTED TO VIDEO OUTDOORS. I SENT IT BACK - THEY SAID THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS PRODUCT AND AFTER MUCH WRANGLING THEY SENT ME A NEW ONE - THIS WAS EVEN WORSE -IT MIRRORED ME AND WHAT WAS BEHIND ME MAKING OUTDOOR VIDEOING ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE. I OFFERED TO BUY A MORE EXPENSIVE CAMERA BUT THEY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND ONE.
I HAVE BEEN A VIDEOGRAPHER FOR 17 YEARS WITH MY OWN PROGRAMME ON PTTV AND THEN RVTV WITH YOUR OLD CAMERA CANON VIXIA HV40 - NO PROBLEM WITH THIS SCREEN - (BORROWED FROM RVTV.)

how can i get softwear for my sbjc-80 to download on my MacBOOK Air
Hey Yoroku, So I wanted to give you an update on the struggle I just went through to get the 5D Mark IV and 16-35mm lens ordered. It started Friday when I initially made the order after a few issues with raising my limit on my debit card, which was expected.One call to the bank, fixed in minutes. I continued to be put on hold with Canon for 10-15 minutes at a time here and there just to get this ordered. I had many issues with online live chat and then issues over the phone regarding the order. The order was finally placed and suppose to be "all good" on Friday November 3rd, 2017 with a two-day shipping due to the very important project that i have coming up filming the South Sudanese refugees in Uganda coming up. I needed this camera ASAP and have been working non stop to make sure I can purchase this, get it on time, and fund this trip to Uganda. The first issue came when the sales representative put the wrong email, shipping address, and other information in over the phone. I called back several times because I had received no confirmation number, no tracking, or any information. Again, I was put on hold for quite a bit of time. I finally got through and got the information changed and it was again, suppose to be "all good". That was the first cancellation and reorder, which I had to call my bank back and fourth through this whole process because of the size of the transaction.The reorder was suppose to go out Monday morning (yesterday), and I received no update on shipping. I called numerous times, placed on hold for long periods of time, and was told they aren't sure what's going on but it needs to be reordered again. Again, had to call the bank and relay information. Then had to get patched through about five different people to finally talk to someone who could credit the money back into my bank account from the cancelled order and patch my bank in to figure it out. It was grueling. I was on the phone off and on with canon yesterday ALL day long. I have been patient and respectful through the entire process, you can ask any of the reps who I talked to. I have gone through my phone precisely and since Friday, I have logged a total of 17 calls to canon regarding issues that have ALL been on their end without much explanation at all. The order had to be cancelled and it was officially ordered 3 times now. I logged a total of 3 hours and 44 minutes since my first initial call on Friday. It has been a nightmare of an experience. Wayne, gave me a 10% discount and free express shipping for the troubles, which is okay, but i believe I need to bring it to your attention and give you the opportunity to make this right. I want to put it into your hands to prove to me that canon is worth it to go through. That even if I went through this long, excruciating, timely process while I was currently working on a job site and was intervening on the way I make money, that it is worth it. I have a production company that has had many recent large donations and we plan to upgrade all of our equipment, which is a lot going out and investing. The plan was to go through Canon because I assumed you are reliable due to your reputation. I didn't see that through this process. I'm going to buy another lens, the 70-200mm II, in the next few days but now I'm hesitant I may go through this process again and don't see it as worth it right now. My question to you is, can you show me that this was worth my time and the money it interfered with? Please get back to me as soon as you can. Thanks, Sam Mann
..Jake Olson Studios: Response Bullshit. You might want to tell it to Canon. My heavily Photoshopped image is on most of their new packaging. Only the final image matters not how you got there. It never ceases to amazes me how the least successful people like you the industry have the most advice to give. You're a nobody. Why do people like you think your opinion matters?
A Direct Quote from Mr. Olson: Derogatory, insulting, damaging and negative comments coming from a Photographer that represents your Brand Canon. ???
I have your EOS Rebel XT and just sent it into the Costa Mesa, CA office for cleaning. I am extremely disappointed as the service center returned my camera UNcleaned with a note explaining my camera was unable to clean because it is "out of service life." They also suggested that I purchase a new camera as an alternative to trying to have mine serviced! I cannot believe this is how Canon wishes to treat it's customers! Given this, I will NEVER choose canon products for anything again. I will also inform everyone I know that Canon does not back their products for a reasonable amount of time.
I have been in contact with the Melville, NY office and spoken with Charice who assured me she would contact my service center and get back to me with some kind of a solution to all this. My phone number is (hidden) and my email is (hidden) I would like to see if this matter can be resolved.
thank you, Melinda Bendon
Hai sir iam Jebastin newly opened service center so please quotation on 1 Xerox machine.
It is now 9:28 am. CST. I have been on hold for tech support for 24 minutes.
I would like to file a complaint against a partner company that sells Canon scanners. The business name is Imagex in Reston, VA. They are a very shady practice, also they mentioned to me several times they sell scanners to other Canon partners even though they are not supposed to. They sell scanners to a company called Benchmark, about 10 to 20 a week and have bragged about Canon not finding out. They have demonstrated they are doing something they shouldn't and I feel it is unethical so I wanted to let you know.
An appeal to save my passionate work that halted due to financial crunch Hello, I am unemployed and am going through a financial crunch and somehow manage to pay up my household bills. I have passion for saving old family photographs into digital images and permanently store those on DVDs. Now I am unable to continue this as I have been revoked my access to the scanner of the person I used. You are financially well established person. I hope you can buy me a scanner to help me proceed with my passionate work. Please don't pay me cash. I will be glad if you can arrange to get my desired scanner only. The model is Canon PIXMA MG2570S Scanner cum Printer. My computer has become very old and can run only on Windows XP (SP3). I have no money to upgrade it and I don't need to do that if I get the required scanner (cum printer). I don't need to print, but I have chosen that model as it is cheap and supported by Windows XP. Waiting for a positive response. Any query will be entertained by me. Please give it a thought and I urge you once again to move positively to help me. I will send you any other details you may need, if you respond. Required least costly scanner as per my requirement: Canon PIXMA MG2570S Scanner cum Printer. My Address: 86/1/1/2, ABINASH BANERJEE LANE, DISTRICT: HOWRAH. LANDMARK: SHIBPUR UNITED CLUB. INDIA. PIN - 711104. Thanking you, With warm regards, Siddhartha Bhattacharyya.
HORRIBLE PRODUCTS AND EVEN WORSE SUPPORT
PIXMA 922 fails to stay wirelessly connected. Hundreds of internet threads on it and Canon fails to admit it is their problem, fails to support the issue and each tech guy contradicts the one before him. Will never buy Canon again!
Beware Cannon printer driver downloads! "Extended survey" that downloads with printer drivers is an invasion of privacy!! Get out of my computer with your "collecting" of usage information monthly for a year or more. I guess we're supposed to TRUST that's all you're collecting...
Purchased Cannon heated mattress pad, king size and last winter it was too hot even on level 1. This year it seems to be working well but now after one week the one control won't light up and won't heat anymore. This is a lousy product and defective. Rest warmer was a much better pad than this./

sorry canon, i love your ergonomics and build of the c100 and c300 series, but I can get 2 ursa mini 4.6k camera's one with ef and the other with pl mount option for less what you guys are offering for one c300 mark 2. You guys have lost it IMO. you will lose many customers for being out of touch
this is not a review but a customer request. Well, this is more of a wish and hope for thefuture, I am in the market to upgrade my canon 70 D to a proper cinema camera, I love the c100 Mark 2, and can"t offord the C300 or c300Mark 2 at this time and your new c700is out of the question. So, I was hoping that canon was updating the c100 model to include 4k recording, with a few other upgrades, cause I must say, " the Ursa mini 4,6k camera with the new 4.0 firmware update is looking real nice for just $5000". If you guys are currently working on an upgrade with new specs, could you please let us loyal customers know cause... I am real close to pulling the trigger on the blackmagic unit. any announcement would be cool,, like canon making updates to it's c100 model to compete with black magic and Sony's 5000-$7000 models.. your support answer was this...ear Lee Ewell,
Thank you for contacting Canon product support. I understand that you have questions about upgrading from your EOS 70D to something in the 4K range. I can certainly help you with this today.
At this time there are no plans to retro fit so to speak the original EOS C100 to 4k compatibility. I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you at this time.
Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.
Thank you for choosing Canon.
Technical Support Representative..
i am sure this was just a typical employee corporate response to my ? so i will try to go furthur up the mamagement chain
This is Lokesh Kurra, I am very much serious and angry as my product order was cancelled.
This is regarding a complaint, my product order number:135093472. I ordered rebel t5 on Tuesday so that by the end of the week. I could attend a marriage and Niagara Falls. But yesterday at 4.24pm I got a mail the order was cancelled and today they told me to re order. The new order number was :135113387nd now the shipping is on Monday. So my whole schedule was gone and now depressed.
They didn't even call me regarding the order getting cancelled and moreover they say the reason we don't know. That's not an answer for the question I asked.
So I don't know whom to complain regarding this.
I want to know why my product order was cancelled even though I paid the money.
Thank you soo much. I hope you would react to my mail asap.
a few weeks ago, david villa-customer relations (hidden)x2222 was checking into and was going to find a solution-he has never called back.-hence-one problem is your customer service had disintegrated to zero on all levels. I was told to go to image garden to scan as a work around since canon stopped using mp navigator. When I get to Image garden to use as directed by canon, It reads"CANNON DISPLAY THE SCAN RESULT IN MY IMAGE GARDEN BECAUSE YOU DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION TP ACCESS THE FOLDER IN WHICH THE SCAN RESULT IS SAVED. - HOW CAN I NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO ACCESS A FOLDER I CREATED? I AM NOW AND ALWAYS HAVE BEEN THE OWNER OF THIS COMPUTER.
CANON "SUPPORT" HAS GONE FROM GREAT TO NON-EXISTENT. IT'S OBVIOUS THAT CANON BELIEVES COST CUTTING SHOULD TAKE CUSTOMER SERVICE AND REDUCE IT TO A SHELL OF WHAT IT USED TO BE. AS A CUSTOMER OF OVER THIRTY YEARS, PRAISING THEM FOR GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE, GOOD BYE TO CANON!
I was promised to be contacted by the corporate offices in writing four days ago within 2 business days to no avail. From my point of view they should reimburse me for a $7.90 payment to Fedex office because HP told me to return to them TWO to boxes but the prepaid postage label was only good for one and I had to pay for a larger box and some insulation to send them both back. They reimbursed for the copier cost but not for for the additional expense.
I have a Canon SureShot Camera and a Canon Printer and they do a GREAT job for me.
The problem I have is I have to many emails so I am deleting all unnecessary ones.
I CANNOT "Unsubscribe" to Canon Advertisingg emails Because the 1st letter of my email address is lower case and either Canon Or my iPad insists in making it a capital and then it will not be accepted. Anyone else have such a problem. It is Very Annoying!
