I was sent this image.
At first I thought that it was a clever use of the Thai characters. However, after looking at the actual Thai character set I realised that it was not.
Then I thought that it could be a mix of real and fake characters, for example the “H” is a ho hip (ห), the O is very similar to a o ang (อ) or tua o (อ), U is a bo baimai (บ) with a tin yiat (◌ุ), T is a ro ruea (ร) and the I is a mai na (เ) with a phinthu i (◌ิ), whereas the C, E and Y are clearly fake, the N is a reversed H (or rather, a reversed ho hip (ห)) and the F looks like an unfinished kho khwai (ค) and the A looks like something, but it isn’t, and the R is a reversed version of the A without the cross bar.

However, it had no supply supply, 24V 2.2 A. By luck, I managed to find a Canon power supply brick CA-CP200 B, 24 V which supplied 1.8 A. Obviously not the correct rating, but close enough to test the printer. Continue reading Selfie Canon?
