Reinstalling printer driver for Canon ImageClass4150

Q: Reinstalling printer driver for Canon ImageClass4150

I was working on getting the Canon ImageClass 4150 machine to work on a machine with Vista installed. I downloaded the new driver and upon trying to install the installer informed me that I needed to uninstall the previous instances of "MF Drivers" in order to reinstall.

I ran a utility included in the setup zip file that is supposed to remove previous Canon drivers in the 4100 series. I removed it from Add/Remove programs and also in the Device Manager. I've searched the computer (including hidden files, etc) and can't find any previous instances of the driver. Can't figure out what else I need to install.. Any help please?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

MF refers to the model group...ignore the fact that the second link refers to Win 7. Both links are provided as just info to consider.

I have a Canon BJC 4400 bubble jet printer that was given to me. I downloaded a driver for it (version 3.97) but when I try to install the driver a window comes up entitled "Extraction Progress" and extraction completes and then a window comes up saying "Canon Information", "all items were successfully extracted." I click OK and the next window that comes up is entitled "Readme-Notepad" in which information about things such as installation but when I close that window nothing else happens, it goes back to my desktop. I'm using Windows Me. I downloaded a driver for the same printer for my laptop which has Windows XP and it installs without any problem. All steps for adding a printer were followed. Version3.97 is for Windows 3.1, 95, 98, and Me. Any help would be appreciated.

I bought this printer for a buck at a garage sale. They claimed it worked, but had no ink. I paid around twelve dollars for the ink cartridges on ebay, but forgot to check first to see if Canon had a driver for xp. They don't. However, when I go to microsoft's printer support page, I find that printer listed as one that there are drivers for in xp. http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=293360

The question is--should I assume Microsoft is correct, or assume that my printer won't work and just get rid of it?

I just upgraded my home network to a wireless system. I'm running XP Pro on the computer hardwired to the Canon Multipass F50. My laptop is running XP Home and networked via wireless. All aspects of the network operate perfectly, file sharing, internet access, etc. The add printer function allows me to find the canon over the network, I have the driver installed (because I've been using the printer in a networked (shared) mode prior to going with the wireless router. Now when I attempt to print I get an error message that states: "Failed to open printer" Canon's website simply states that there are no drivers for XP to allow for sharing this printer.

Wonderful!! Anyone have a workaround? It used to share until I went wireless.

A:XP printer driver for canon multipass f50

It almost sounds like there's a permission problem with using the printer with the laptop. Try going to the printer properties on the machine that the printer's connected to. Go to the Security tab and make sure that your laptop login computer name is there and all of the permissions in the ACL list are checked. You could also try going to Network Neighborhood, go to the computer that has the printer connected and try to connect to the printer through there.

I have Canon S900 inkjet installed on an XP PC on my win 7 homegroup. Works fine from the XP PC. The Win 7 PC sees the S900 and asks for driver.

A:Canon S900 printer driver installation on Win 7

You should read this other thread I posted last week.

That other thread described my issues trying to get the x86 drivers for a Canon S800 installed as the second driver on an x64 Win7 machine. The S800 was USB-connected to the Win7 machine and was supported out-of-the-box by Win7. However the required x86 drivers were seemingly unavailable from Canon.

I was trying to add the x86 drivers as a second driver for the printer on x64 Win7 so that the x86 WinXP machine (which was also on the home LAN) could print on the S800 hosted by the x64 Win7 machine.

After quite a struggle, I solved the problem. It actually involved THREE separate driver(INF) files and folders. Two of them were on the Win7 installation DVDs, but the third one (which was the primary starting point) apparently didn't make it to Microsoft in time for the Win7 installation DVD production. so this crucial first of three drivers was only available from the Microsoft Updates Catalog site.

So the three needed x86 versions of the three x64 drivers that had been automatically installed in x64 Win7 were my target. Again, two of them were on the 32-bit x86 Win7 installation DVD (just as they were on the 64-bit x64 Win7 installation DVD). But again, the primary first driver was not. And that's what I got from the Microsoft Updates Catalog site.

I then used a program named WinMount to extract the two other x86 drivers from the 32-bit Win7 installation DVD which I had a copy of.
I suggest that you start by de... Read more

A:Driver needed for Canon LBP2900 printer

to get my lbp2900 printer working i used the following workaround
- Installed virtualbox (maybe this is also possible in virtualpc)
- started a virtual winxp image
- virtualbox has a remote usb-bridge to connect to usb-devices not recognised by the host-system, configure the bridge to the printer
- install lbp2900 driver

To print from office/photoshop without installing those in the virtual image, on the host system print to pdf (pdfcreator) and print the pdf in the virtual image.

however i still hope canon releases their x64 lbp2900 driver soon!

I have an older Canon imageclass d761 printer.

There are no 'official' x64 bit drivers on the Canon page.

My other printer, a MX850, works fine (Canon had x64bit driver)..

A:Canon x64 Win7 printer driver for d761

If your computer supports virtualization, use Windows XP mode. Even though my machine runs Windows 7 64-bit, XP mode is a 32-bit "machine" which is compatible with the printer.

I called Canon and was told to Google it. Nice support!

Anyway, printing works fine. I haven't figured out scanning yet, but hopefully will soon...

I have a Canon MP190 printer. I was having issues with weird messages every time I tried to print something. I figured I may need a driver update. So I went to Canon's site and downloaded the latest driver for my printer. I deleted the prior driver per instructions. The current driver just won't install. I followed the directions, but it fails to either find or install the updated driver.

I get a pop-up telling me Windows is searching Windows update for the driver. Problem here is the driver I downloaded from Canon has nothing to do with Windows update. I have Windows update shut off. So it is looking for the driver in the wrong place.

I tried to manually picking the driver out of various places on my computer, but I don't see it?
When I type MP190 in the start search box I find/see the downloaded driver location. If I double-click it-it unzips the WinZip Self-Extractor download. Then I get a welcome to the MP drivers setup program, I disconnect the printer cable from my laptop, and exited all running programs as asked.

Next I choose my place of residence--USA. Click next, accept license agreement, installs drivers. Click complete, confirm printer cable is plugged into computer, turn on printer. I get a pop-up telling me Windows needs to install driver software for your MP190 printer. Then I click "Locate and install driver software (recommended)" It starts to install and the driver icon spins like it is installing, but then fails to install.

I just purchased a new Vista Home version computer. I started downloading old software/updates/etc. I have a Canon imageClass D680 multifunction printer/copier [Canon PC1200 /iC d600/iR1200G] with the original CD but it is not compatible with Vista.

I went to CanonUSA website and downloaded their Vista version of the driver. NOTE: I have done this numerous times and saved it to several different locations [Program file folder in both Vista and one I created in my user "Program" folder] because Vista notified me that I did not have Administrator authorization - I got on line and learned how to disable the user limitation so I could have Administrator rights.

I have restarted my computer in both my personal user account and Administrator account over a dozen time in order to bring up the new hardware notification window and driver wizard. Since the cd version did not work, it prompts me to browse, I click on the corresponding folder, and then I get the same message EVERY time . . .

[paraphrased] "windows cannot locate the driver for the hardware, contact the manufacturer to get the driver."

You guys out there are more tech savvy then me - please help. I do not want to trash this printer/copier - it works great (it worked fine with my old XP machine just a week or two ago).

Is Vista that bad? (All my Canon printers and cameras have been great).

Error is WindowsUpdate_80070BC8, which doesn't help much. I haven't been able to find a 64 bit driver on any of the Canon sites, but I have found an XP 64 driver, on another site.

This status code is listed as ERROR_CORE_DRIVER_PACKAGE_NOT_FOUND

Attempting to update the driver from the printer properties finds a couple of drivers, but they also fail to find a core driver package. Add printer wizard finds a compatible driver on my machine, but that also fails for the same reason.

Hi all,

OK ... for a few days (maybe a week) now I have had trouble with my Canon MX870 Printer/Fax. I have been using it successfully for the past 16 months now, via USB connection, installed on both my Windows 7 laptop and my Windows XP PC (I just unplug it and plug it in to whichever computer I need to print from).

For some reason, it has decided not to recognise the drivers on my laptop. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall (no go). I also deleted every instance of MX870 from the registry that it would allow me to (some it wouldn't for some reason - no access - yes I am Administrator). Reinstall again ...still no go.

The Windows 7 Updates were failing to update the Fax component which I thought was the problem, then all of a sudden it was successful ... still no printer. Now, it is unsuccessful again.

But ... I don't use the Fax component ... never have ... with no problems for 16 months.

The reinstall from the CD is successful, but when I plug in the printer, it fails. "Device driver software was not successfully installed. Please consult with your device manufacturer for assistance getting this device installed.

Thats a long story. You might of already did this. Start and go to devices and printers. Make sure the printer has a check mark in it. That will make it your default printer. With the printer hooked up to your computer and powered up reboot your computer. Lets see if Windows 7 will pick it up or sometimes it will ask if you want to install the driver. Windows 7 comes with a lot of drivers built in.

Beat my head against the wall so decided to post because I finally have it working.
My setup:
Machine 1: Windows 7 64 bit
Machine 2: Windows Home Server WHS (or in your case any 32 bit Windows OS) with Canon Pixma MP780 printer

Can't install 64 bit drivers on machine 2 (under additional drivers) such that machines on the network can connect to this shared printer.
Canon only provides 64 bit drivers for fax and scanner and not printer on their website because the assumption is that a native driver is built into Win7 (64bit), which it is. The problem is that canon on both machines refers to this printer as two different names in the .inf file.

On the 32 bit side, it's called: "Canon MP780 Series Printer"
On the 64 bit native driver (that windows provides), it's called: "Canon Inkjet MP780 Series"

So, when I tried to connect to the network'd printer, it tried to look for it locally, on windows update and times out and fails (looking for the wrong name and therefore a mismatch).

Btw, I tried creating a local port on the 64 bit machine and gave it a UNC path to my WHS which works but after a reboot it doesn't so that's not "non techie" friendly and a pain in the neck.

Here's what I did:
Look for the driver under c:\windows\system32\driverstore\filerepository\<for your printer>.

In my case, for the Pixma MP780, it was : prnca00l.inf_amd64_neutral_4049bfb7d4c077ab

I was curious if I could install a x86 printer/scanner driver on a x64 system?

I had to install the x64 driver through Microsoft Update. When I installed the software that controls the scanner the software says no scanner detected.

The software works fine in XP and I still see driver support in x86 Vista/7.

Since I installed the printer driver through MS update there is no uninstaller. If I wanted to uninstall it, do I go to Device Manager and delete the printer driver from there? How likely would 32-bit drivers work a 64-bit system?

A:Canon MP730 Multi Function x86 x64 printer & scanner driver assistance

You can go to device manager>properties>driver tab>install driver to install it.

As far as using a 32bit driver on a 64bit system I'm pretty sure it won't work.

Have you tried using the Cannon driver installer?
They have a listing under multifunction for the Smartbase Mp730 if this is the one your referring to.

Then again it doesn't say what OS it is for.
My impression of the site is that it first has you install their down-loader which will scan your system and then provide the correct driver.

I would give this a try if you haven't already.

My Canon printer is no longer connected to my Local Area Network, although the printer shows that my WiFi is operating.  When I click on "Devices and Printer," I see that my computer has a problem with the Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter
driver.  When I click on the printer, I receive error code 10, and the driver update will not install.  I have Windows 7 Ultimate and am not sure what to do.  Should I try to reinstall the driver for my printer model that is available online
from Canon?  Will that fix the Teredo Tunneling Adapter driver, or is that a different problem?  The fixes I read on line for the latter (i.e., change the registry, make changes as the system administrator etc.) sound a bit formidable.  Is there
something I can try first?  Am also concerned from a security perspective about downloading drivers etc. from the internet.  Any help would be much appreciated.

I recently uninstalled and reinstalled the software (Multipass Manager 3.01) for my Canon C5500 printer; during the reinstall, I am receiving the following error "Failed to register mpservic.exe to windows NT as domain or service". Can anyone give me any insight on how to make the software register this executable to the service MPSERVICE? I tried to remove all entries for the Canon printer in the registry and reinstalled the software; but I am receiving this same error everytime and the software is uninstallled after the error. Please help!!

A:Reinstall of Canon Multipass 3.01 software for Canon C5500 printer

Two things to try: If you have anti-virus software, disable it, uninstall the cannon stuff. Reboot (be sure av is still disabled), and reinstall. Then reenable av, restart for good measure.

Another suggestion from Canon, though not apparently EXACTLY your issue:


Also, see this document.. it most likely is not related, but..

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 trusty old Canon printer S400 finally has decided to act up and quit on me after several years. I am getting an Error 5700 when I attempt to print to it. I can not locate what this error means.

If someone knows, I'd appreciate it.

A:Canon printer error 5700 on S400 printer

I don`t know what the error means, but have you tried uninstalling then reinstalling the printer?

Check the cables for damage and connection.

If this doesn`t work then maybe a new printer is in order.

Regards Howard

I get a printer error that I have two of the same cartridge installed (which I don't). I did the maintenance cleaning. I was able to get it to print for awhile by opening and closing the lid, but now it is not printing. I use Canon cartridges, and several are new cartridges.

A friend has a new 64 bit Win 7 computer and an "older" Canon BJC 250 printer that she wants to be able to use just as she did with XP. It connects with USB and Win 7 recognizes the connection but the printer does not show up anywhere, such as on Devices and Printers page. I have dowloaded the Canon driver but am stymied at that point. Suggestions and help appreciated.

A:Canon BJC printer and Win 7 64 bit

I've looked at Canon's driver page for the BJC-250 and unfortunately that model is not supported on windows 7, nor is it supported on Windows Vista. The last driver that Canon released for that model was for Windows XP in 2003 and that definitely won't work on Windows 7.

Canon have evidently decided that the BJC-250 is too old for them to spend money writing new drivers for it. This is not unusual as other device manufacturers have also done the same with some of their discontinued models.

So if, as you say, you've already downloaded a driver for it I'm puzzled as to where you got it from.

The bottom line is that you'll have to buy a new printer for Windows 7.

My MX 870 printer is not printing. The item are backing up in the queue. (the WiFi light is on , if that means anything) I recently added a second computer, (lap-top), in a network.


A:Canon MX 870 Printer

Hello and Welcome to TSF!

I wonder if you have an Auto IP or DHCP setup for this printer. This need to be a Fixed IP, any wireless device with Auto IP assigned is not recommended.

See if the Printer IP matches with the wireless computers in your network, click on Start=> Printers and Faxes or you may also find this from Control Panel. Locate the Canon printer, right click on it, go to Properties, Port Tab and in here you shd be able to see the IP Address. From the Canon printer, look in the Menu Setting, under Network or TCP/IP setting to locate the IP Address, make sure it's on Static and the IP matches the IP in all computers in your network.

Is it possible to get longer use out of cartridges for the lowly BJC-2000SP (black and colour) and BJ-30(black). Mine run out almost straight away. I've tried what the manuals say about draft mode and speed settings.
