Previously used above mentioned all-in-one printer in the Windows XP operating system on my Dell 2400 Series machine. All applications worked. Tried to move printer to current computer within the Windows 8.1 environment. I can print and make copies with no problem. However, the scanner application does not function. Spoke with Canon technical support and did several tests including uninstalling, re-installing and rebooting system with no solution. Checked the Microsoft web site and spoke with technical support with no solution here as well.

Can anyone enlighten me as what is the possible solution for this issue? Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a Canon i850 printer which I have immensely enjoyed using these past four+ years. For one thing, I've never had even one paper-jam during that time.

My understanding always has been that it is best to have separate components, so that's why I've always owned a dedicated printer. However, it appears that the present-day trend is more toward all-in-one units. Actually, I'm in the market only for a printer, but if the Canon MP600 all-in-one is technologically advanced far beyond my i850, then I would strongly considering buying one.

The MP600 has a scanner (which I don't need, although it would provide me with a back-up) and it has several modern features of convenience which my i850 doesn't have. What I would especially like to know is whether or not the MP600 produces appreciably better results with both text and photos than my i850. Also, would it be faster and cheaper in the long run than the MP600? While quality of results is more important than anything else, speed, economy, and convenience also enter into the equation.

(I was also considering the Canon PIXMA iP6700D photo printer, but from what I've read so far it appears that the MP600 all-in-one is more highly-regarded.)

I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has an opinon on this matter. Thank you very much.

When I tried to install a new Canon Pixma ip6220D printer on my Sony Vaio Windows XP Media Edition w/ SP2 desktop I receive an error that the computer cannot detect the printer after I hook-up the USB cable to the computer from the printer. This is after a balloon dialog appears in the system tray noting that new hardware was found - the hardware being a Canon ip6220D. The Canon software notes that it could not detect the printer and that there was a printer driver failure. Eventually a Windows error box appears noting that an error occurred installing the new hardware.

I have the same problem with a printer that previously had no problems. That printer is a HP Photosmart 3210xi.

I ran malware check using Threat Fire 3 which didn't find anything.

I have tried different USB ports with no success. I have tried USB ports that other devices use with no success.

Any suggestions on how to attack this problem would be appreciated.

My Canon PIXMA MX700 Printer isn't functioning as a network printer. During installation of it as a network printer, what it does is say "Communicating with printer." for a while and
then it says "The printer in the network could not be detected
automatically. Set the IP address of the printer to be connected." And no
matter what I select it starts over with "Communicating with printer." I corresponded with Canon via email, but in the end they just said to call their technical support. The printer is wired into the modem and plugged into the computer via USB, so I don't get the problem.

A:Canon PIXMA MX700 Printer

On my Canon MX870 I use the wireless connection but there is also an eithernet port. I believe what you are seeing is the wireless wizard attempting to connect wirelessly to the printer.

If you are using the wired or wireless connection you should not need to use the USB connection on the printer. Perhaps this has something to do with the problem?

Does the printer show up on the Windows 7 network map? Does it show as being connected in the routers settings?

Did everything instructed for troubleshooting printing problems i.e. all maintenance, print head alignments (including manual alignment) etc. Printer will NOT print black and white TEXT. I have all new cartridges including black. Color prints ok but no black and white text printing. What could be the problem here?
 

A:Canon Printer - Pixma iP6600D

Your print head has likely failed. Thats the piece thats under the cartridges and it is removal to be cleaned or replaced. Instructions for manually cleaning the printhead can be found here: http://www.inkjetoasis.ca/io_help.asp

To order a new print head you can call Canon @ 1-800-OK CANON, I think its about $70 but if you like the printer then its worth it since most new Canon's use considerable more expensive cartridges because they have the print head built into the cartridge.

There is a firmware upgrade from Nov 08 that might be applicable since it specifically is for FAX problems. There is a list of serial numbers that need the firmware upgrade – be sure to read the instructions as firmware can be tricky. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/c...tegoryid=2613&modelid=13371#DownloadDetailAct

The latest driver is 1.10 from 2006 that is probably already what you are using.

Probably your best approach for resetting everything to default is to just uninstall the software and reinstall it. If that doesn’t work you would want to check “Printers and Faxes” & “Cameras and Scanners” to make sure they are removed and also look in Program Files to remove any residual folder left by the software. Usually an uninstall and reinstall works fine.

I take it you read the manual and set the machine to FAX/TEL Auto SW.

I take it you have a “land” line for your phone – a LAN is a local network. If it is a DSL line you usually don’t want the regular phone filter on the modem connection. The hookup varies according to the type of DSL – Canon recommends contacting the DSL provider.

If it is just a regular phone connection you could have a poor line connection. I had some modem problems many years ago and also had a little noise on the phone. The phone company traced the problem and I had no more modem problems. The firmware is supposed to help with tha... Read more

I have just purchased a mp620 and have been trying to install it for the past 2 hours!!!

First I let win7 try to detect it, but it could not print out a test page due to "printer not responding" error on the print queue. I tried to trouble shoot, but this was pointless.

So then I tried to install with the supplied CD. this was even worse. I could not get past the printer detection phase - the printer was switched on, and the usb was plugged in, but it could not detect.

I tried swapping it out with a different usb cable to make sure it wasn't the cable, but still nothing.

I then tried to install the latest mp drivers from the canon website, rebooted, but still nothing.

As the subject suggests I have a problem with the Canon MP130 printer. Well not actually the printer itself but the built-in card reader. For a while I have had a long pause during startup, also a "USB mass storage device" lost it's driver. I thought it may be due to crap on the computer so I formatted and reloaded Windows XP, but alas to no avail. I then searched google and found the microsoft article "Long Pause During Windows Startup Process". So I thought can't do much. Then I found in the hardware profile the entry under the failed usb device "USB\04a9" this turned up results in google to some printer components. I tried changing USB ports on the computer but no good. I then disconnected the USB Printer from the computer, and "voila" the computer started fine and no "USB Mass storage device" error. I do not use the printers card reader so is there anyway to disable the reader.

"Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

Do i have to get a new printer or is there a fix?

Please help.

Welcome to Seven Forums

First off please try and fill in more detailed information on your system, you can use one of these programs to help Speccy - System Information - Free Download Or |MG| HWiNFO32 3.65 Download
On some laptops removing the USB device then turning off the system and then removing the battery for about 5 minutes and then reversing the above will fix the problem.

With a PC it's about the same as resetting the CMOS. Which you can find out detailed information on how to do this on your motherboard by going to the manufacturers site and downloading the manual for instructions. Unplug your printer and then give that a try.
Thanks for updating your system specs in advance.

We bought this printer, a Canon Pixma ip6000D, about 3 years ago, used it maybe five times, and then one day it stopped working. Here's what it does now:

Sometimes when I plug it in the green power light will come on and the computer will recognize it and install the driver...but it doesn't power on or responded to any commands.

Sometimes when I plug it in the power light alternates repeatedly between green and orange and still doesnt power on.

Other times nothing at all happens when I plug it in.

Also, very rarely, the LCD powers on in addition to the power light turning on...but it shortly dies after this. When it does this I still hear nothing going on inside the printer.

Any ideas? Or is it busted/in need of repair?

Thanks a bunch.

P.S. I am willing to open it up if need be.
 

A:Canon Pixma IP6000D Printer Problem

zack: If your PC recognizes the printer and installs drivers, that's wrong.
Try this, first, find the START HERE Instructions that came with your Printer. Then find the CD that came with it. Follow the instructions exactly. You don't want Windows drivers.
In Control Panel ADD/Remove, uninstall any software and drivers for the Canon Printer. Also remove the printer from Printers and Faxes.
When you have all Canon stuff removed, use the START HERE sheet and install everything back.
If there is no mechanical problem with your printer, you should be good to go.
If you have a mechinical problem, you're on your own because if it were mine, I'd junk it and buy another.
I have had just a little luck repairing printers at the shop, but for the most part, they are cheaper to replace.
Since you have used it only 5-6 times in 3 years, get a cheap one.

I am having some trouble with my WiFi enabled Canon Pixma mp495 printer. I have three computers on my home network and all but one of those computers are having problems printing. All have Windows 7 Home Premium and are all connected through wifi. Here is the problem: Whenever I try to print any type of document, the printer will print only half of the first page, and then continue to repeatedly print that first page over and over again. It will not even try to print the other pages within the document. I have tried removing the printer from all three computers (at the same time) using devices and printers, as well as completely removing the drivers using the printui command in cmd. I have also tried re-installing the printer by letting Windows discover it as well as manually entering the IP address of the printer. Another thing I tried was updating the current driver but Windows tells me it is already up to date. I am an intern for an IT department and have asked multiple co-workers but none seem to have a good answer. This problem is very frustrating so any help at all would be appreciated.
 

A:Printer Problems - Canon Pixma MP495

Hi,
I've been having a problem with my Canon printer (I feel like throwing it against the wall!). It has new ink cartridges in it, however, it doesn't seem to be printing correctly. It misses out lines of text/only prints the top half of a line of text/prints very faint etc etc. I have cleaned/deep cleaned it numerous times (!) using the maintenance tools and printed off the nozzle test pages only to see that it still has this problem. This isn't the first time that I've experienced this issue - I had to send it away for repair (whilst it was still under warranty thankfully!). Anyway, if anyone has any tips on how to improve my printing then I would be most grateful. If not, any recommendations on a new printer would suffice hehe.

Can anyone who owns either this model, or a similar one, help me with interpreting the keyboard? I previously owned an HP T-65 (all-in-one) which was relatively easy to setup for FAXing. I use a Sprint calling card for long distance and, with my HP, I was able to store the 800 number on "1", my calling card number on "2", and frequently called parties on 3 thru 10. So, when I wanted to send a FAX I merely clicked on "1", waited for the operator to respond, then clicked on "2" to enter my calling card number, and then "3", "4", "5" or... depending on which of the parties I wished to contact. I have just acquired this new printer and wish to set it up likewise but haven't figured out how to do it and the instructions aren't too helpful to me. Hope someone can simplify it for me! TIA.

I have a Canon Pixma 4300 printer on an XP sytem that worked well. Because the original cartridges cost so much, I've purchased a Premium Inkjet Refill kit from Uni-kit and the first time refilled the ink cartridges, everything worked fine.

However, I just refilled two cartridges and used the chip resetter, which did flash, and this time the printer is not recognizing the refilled cartridges. I get 15 flashes on the orange light on the computer, which signifies that there is an inktank problem. However, it's the same inktank that was working before I filled it.

Each of the two new tanks flash red on the tank lights in one second interval. When I close the cover and then let the print head go back into viewing position, those lamps are then out, suggesting that the ink tank is out of ink. It's filled.

Futher, now, when going to the properties tab on the printer and going to maintenance, all the inktanks are not showing any ink whatsover. Before filling these two tanks, some were close to full and all the non-filled tanks were showing up.

Now Canon suggests that you don't take out more than one inktank at a time. I took out two when I was filling them. I don't know if this has any bearing on the problem and if something other than the chip on the inktank has to be reset.

The other thing is that the Canon User manual says you can shut off the ink counter by pressing the resume/cancel button for 5 seconds (nowhere in the manual is this button lis... Read more

The Canon user manual also advises you to use genuine Canon ink cartridges, not copies or refill-kits.
You can't pick and choose which parts of the manual to follow and which to ignore.

This applies to emails, PDF's, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. However, if I convert the document to an image it prints perfectly. So far, I have replaced the black cartridges, reinstalled the driver, cleaned the heads, and restored Windows to 2 days ago just before this problem began, but still no change. Any ideas please?

Hi

I hope that someone can help. I have a computer operating windows 7 bit 64. I am trying to install my canon pixma ip8500 printer. I managed to find the official driver on the canon website (windows couldn't detect it automatically) and downloaded it. My computer then recognised my printer as ip8500 ... however I can't print or check the printer status.

When I attempt to print a screen pops up which says "collecting printer status" and then the computer print process gets stuck. I click on the "display print queue" button and the status is "error - printing".

Even aside from trying to print a document I am unable to check the printer status, (eg the ink levels). Whenever I try, the screen saying "collecting printer status" pops up. The status is "error - printing" size "9 bytes". The status will then alternate every couple of seconds ... "printing", then "error - printing", then "deleting - error - printing" and then back to "printing" again.

When I try to clear the queue ... the status query keeps alternating. I am not able to clear the status until I go into 'view' and click on "refresh".

In addition, I've noticed that the printer icon in "devices and printers" will have a green tick on the printer for a second and then a yellow exclamation mark.

I've tried uninstalling the printer and reinstalling it ... but without any success. An... Read more

Every time I change my printer cartridges on my Canon Pixma MP510 I get the error message 6502. Admittedly the cartridges are refills but they have a chip and have always worked in the past. I've tried the re-setting business of holding power button etc but I dont have a resume button so I dont know if I'm using the right button (I'm using reset). Can anyone help - printer is about to go out the window.

Is anyone able to point me to a source that details the procedure for removing the covers of the iP4000 printer, please? I have found a couple of sources for service manuals/parts lists, but none of them provides anything on this basic procedure! I have it for my iP4200 (yes, the one that keeps Canon in business with ink "tank" sales!), and it's quite simple when you know where all the clips are, but for reasons best known to Canon, they do not seem to include this for the earlier 4000. There is a horrible grinding sound emanating from the works, and I need to take a peek inside.

Any assistance appreciated.

I bought a new laptop and it came with Windows 7 Premium. I have a Canon Pixma ip3000 printer. I have looked everywhere.
My printer is not listed. I tried the trick of choosing USB virtual port and then searching for the latest printers. It still wasn't there.

I have the install disk, does not work.

Help!!!

Hello CoCoSD,

Did you try to download the driver from Canon website?
Photo Inkjet Printers - Photo Inkjet Printers - PIXMA Pro Professional Inkjet Printers - PIXMA Corporate and Graphic Arts Printers - Photo Fun Projects - Photo Printer - PIXMA iP3000 - Canon USA Consumer Products

Select your OS and it should work.

I have a Canon iP PIXMA 1500, and it works perfect with downloaded drivers.

Best regards,

Can't someone help me find a Canon PIXMA ip5000 printer .INF file for Win7 Pro x64 ? The Canon website has an Add-on driver for the Canon PIXMA ip5000 printer, but indicates that Windows Update under Win7 Pro x64 has a driver for the Canon PIXMA ip5000 printer (which it does not). Windows Update has a driver in its list for the ip5300 but none for the ip5000. Help !

Why not try the Canon site?

I recently installed windows 10 on my computer only to find my perfectly good printer no longer works.
The drivers wouldn't update automatically so I went to product support on canon website to search there
It came back with the message that there were no drivers for Win 10 and that I should either change my printer or my OS
I don't wish to do either
Could anyone help me with an alternative to this ludicrous suggestion?
I always trusted canon to be a reliable and reputable company but I may think twice in future if a company cant keep abreast with the latest technology

A:Windows 10 renders my Canon pixma 1p4600 printer useless

I would not imagine that attitude will last very long.
 
Surely Canon have been working to get drivers etc ready for the latest OS from Windows.
 
I had a similar experience with a Samsung Printer.....sent an email to their support area....and received a phone call from South Korea to explain the procedure to me followed by an email with the detail printed there.
 
So....send them an email...give them the story.....and hopefully the reply will fix things.
 
Otherwise.....inform them that you will be buying another printer....and it wont be a canon !
