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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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?

Right, just bought a Canon MP610 printer and have already used in via bluetooth with my Windows Vista computer, but I have now set all the bluetooth software, printer software etc. on my windows xpmc laptop. I searched for bluetooth devices in range and found my mobile and the printer, I paired the printer up with the right passkey and also installled the latest Canon MP610 drivers via canon's website

Anyways when I try to print I get an error message saying 'The printer is not responding' after a while of it saying 'Collecting Printer Status' and then it says the printer is not responding. Not sure why this is because on my Vista comp. had no problems, unusually, but would appreciate anyone's input on this problem.

If anymore info. is needed just ask, will be glad to reply.

All ink ok, letter runs through printer and sounds as if printing, but page exits completely blank. I have carried out all cleaning and head alignment checks.

A:Canon mp610 printer not printing

Reinstall the drivers just in case.
Try several cleaning cycles as it may be a bad blockage. (Unlikely I know but nothing to lose).
Don't know this particular printer but can you remove the print head easily. If so remove it and separate from the ink cartridges then place the jets in a saucer of war water for several hours.

I have a Canon i printer which I have immensely enjoyed using these past four years For one thing I Canon MP600 Pixma vs. All-in-One Canon printer i850 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 MP all-in-one is technologically advanced far beyond my i then I would strongly considering buying one The MP 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 i doesn t have What I would especially like to know is whether or not the MP produces appreciably better results with both text and Canon i850 printer vs. Canon Pixma MP600 All-in-One photos than my i Also would it be faster and cheaper in the long run than the MP 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 iP D photo printer but from what I ve read so far it appears that the MP all-in-one is more highly-regarded I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has an opinon on this matter Thank you very much nbsp

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:

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.

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?

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.

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 that, but if you have any noise on the line it is best to put your phone company on it.

You might try setting your Windows fax up to receive faxes rather than your Canon. If the Windows fax fields the incoming faxes OK it might just be settings on the Canon. You might like the Windows fax better anyway. You view the fax onscreen and if you need a hardcopy you just print it. You could still use the Canon for outgoing faxes.

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.

does anyone, and i mean ANYONE, have any ideas what i can do?!?

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.

Hi all,

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

There is no reason for this to happen as it is fairly new and I've only ever used it twice.

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 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.

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.

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.

Hi there..I have a Canon Pixma MP 970 printer arriving next week...

It has ethernet ability

My O/S is Win XP.

I was wanting to install it so that my wife and I can use the moment we are both hooked up to the internet with vie ethernet via a wireless modem, however we are not hooked up as a network, as I have no need to access her PC nor do i have a need for her to access mine...

I was hoping that when I get the printer and turn it on and use the setup disk(or before I use the disk) that I will see the printer amongst available printers...and then just load the drivers when it says found new printer..

Do you think that will happen or do I need to set up a network I would prefer not to..

please advise, thanks

I have a Canon Pixma 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 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 canon pixma printer problem 4300 inktank 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 canon pixma 4300 printer inktank problem 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 seconds nowhere in the manual is this button listed which I find surprising However that would stop the printer from determining ink levels in the inktank and there was no instructions on how to get the the printer to recognize ink levels again to determine when the tank has to be refilled or replaced I was also wondering if the chip resetter is run by battery because there is a flash when the inktank chip is reset and if that battery runs low causing the resetting not to work In my case there is a flash At this point I m stymied and assume if I buy either remanufactured or original cartridges I can get the printer running again but I would rather use the refill kits to save a bundle as they worked the first time nbsp

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 !

A:Can't find a driver for Canon PIXMA ip5000 printer for Win7 Pro x64

Why not try the Canon site?
Canon U.S.A. : Support & Drivers : PIXMA iP5000
However, the statement on that site

Printer Driver Add-On Module Ver.1.10 (Windows 7/7 x64)
07/20/11 4.10 MB File Name: aomwin110ea23us.exe

This software is a module that expands the functionality of the printer driver for Canon Inkjet printers. Your printer must be installed via Microsoft Update before you download and use this module. By installing this software, you can use the printer...

seems to rely upon Windows Update having the drivers.
If you can't get them you might try changing the Operating System on the above link to Vista 64-bit. It's a considerably larger file and looks like a copy of the original disc for the printer. Otherwise you may be shopping for a new printer.

One other thing that may negate all this, just because your EXACT model number is not listed it usually is because it is part of a Series so the Canon PIXMA ip5000 will probably work, have to be more aware of how things are described versus how the marketing/production of things are done.

I get a bubble error message from the system tray that says:

One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and windows does not recognize it.

When I look at Device Properties the device status says:

No drivers installed for this device.

I know the drivers are installed. Even so, I uninstalled and reinstalled them. I downloaded the most recent drivers and tried that, still no luck.

All other USB devices are working.

I did have a virus problem 2 days ago that I cleared up. The printer malfunction seems to coincide with that time frame.

A:Canon Pixma IP 5000 Printer proper storage after cleaned?

If you are storing the printer, take the ink cartridges out, if you are going to use it again in the near future put the cartridges in a plastic bag to stop them drying out, or if storing for a long time when ready put the bums on the cartridges in shallow water, (done this myself no problems,) and also used non genuine cartridges, although I will say, the non genuine ones, some of them tend to make the printer dirtier sooner, not all are like that, same applies to toners for laser printers, most of them are ok but just some are not made as well as the genuine ones.

A:USB Connected Canon Pixma- computer shuts down when printer turned off.

Do not use a power strip to control the printer, use the printer's own Power button. The printer button, unlike the power strip button, initiates a shut down procedure that parks the print head where it won't dry out. This is the case with the MP950, Canon claims. -

I use Canon Pixma printer with Windows 7. When I want to scan and e-mail the colours of my computer change radically. I cannot get a full picture reproduced either. Only part of it is reproduced. I had to do a system restore to get the computer to remove the ugly colours. This is the second time that it happened. Please help.

A:Canon Pixma

As regards not being able to reproduce a complete picture, try reducing the 'PPI' setting in your scanner software prior to scanning. Whilst 300 ppi is considered the optimum setting for photo scans which you intend to print, that's way too high for an email. Try scanning at 150 ppi or even 100 ppi if it's only for an email attachment.

The scanning time will then be much shorter and there will only be half as much data for the PC to cope with (compared to scanning at 300 ppi).

I updated my driver for this printer in order to use it with a new VISTA computer. In doing this, my XP laptop, can no longer use this printer. Is there a simple solution to this?

A:Canon pixma MP 780

Updating drivers usually doesn't affect the hardware itself. Its strange that it simply stopped working because you installed vista drivers on another computer. My Pixma was simply a plug-and-play from my vista desktop to my XP laptop.

Can you provide more detail? Does the computer detect the printer but it simply doesn't print? Or is the printer undetected completely? Maybe you could try uninstalling then installing new drivers for it.

Have returned to my Canon Pixma Pro9000 printer after 2 months of non use over the winter. The printer flashes yellow and green and the rollers run when turned on for a moment. But it does nothing else. Will not move inks to remove position when lid opened. Installed new printer drivers but the printer is non responsive even when non connected to computer. Tried hard reset. Did not work. Turned off and on, checked paper paths and guide settings. Not sure what to do next. Thanks

Hi folks This is driving me nuts Back in the fall Can't MX700 Pixma Canon with scan when I switched over to Windows Home Premium x from Vista Home Premium SP x I installed the software for my Canon Pixma MX multifunctional printer I used the original Vista driver installer disc and despite an warning message about a quot known compatibility issue quot the printer and scanning Can't scan with Canon Pixma MX700 functions worked fine I use the Pixma on the LAN via a wired ethernet connection Worked fine for occasional scanning in November December and January Then for months I had no need to scan anything just printing over the network with no problems Last weekend I needed to scan something I usually just push the scan button on the printer verify the computer it's going to scan to it lists them and away it goes This time my computer threw an error about the scanner driver saying the scanner wasn't on the network Huh If the scanner's not on the network how did the computer know it was trying to send a scan So I bailed on that and instead used the MP Navigator EX software on the computer It failed too giving the quot scanner not connected quot error either using Navigator's direct interface or telling it to open the scanner driver which brings up a slightly different interface when it worked First I went to the Canon site and d l'ed all the latest drivers for x and installed them Still get the same errors Tried setting it up to scan via USB Can't scan with Canon Pixma MX700 temporary connection If I install it that way it works but it's not a long term solution And it stops working after a reboot The odd thing is the scanner works over the LAN after I set it up for USB when using NAvigator because the scan to lan button on the printer doesn't work of course again until reboot I've googled the heck out of this and tried many things such as a weird solution involving deleting a link to MSN Web Resources which doesn't exist on my machine so I can't do it I'm at wits end Some update to Windows or some other change caused the original installation of drivers software not to work after January sometime and nothing I do gets the scanner to work consistently And it's particularly interesting that it works temporarily after I set it up to use the USB cable but that it dies again after reboot MS firewall and Security Essentials are disabled through all this no other AV etc software running HELP Marc

A:Can't scan with Canon Pixma MX700

I had this problem too & I also have a MX 700. I didn't have quite the probs your having, but when I went to scan something, it would just sit there doing nothing.

The way I found after playing around with it was like this:

I had to go to Start/Devices and Printers.

I R clicked on the printer/scanner and clicked "Start Scan".

Once I did that, it worked for me. You'll get a window with all the options for scanning. For some reason Windows took over the scan feature, but it works, so I'm happy.

Mine is hooked up via USB also, but I'm not on a x64. Driver prob maybe?

Anyway, that's how I got mine to scan, I hope it helps.

I have a canon MP560 pixma printer that I am not able to print using the canon black ink. The cartridges are new OEM Canon cartridges. The printer has been idle for 1 year and is essentially new. I did a couple of black only deep cleanings but still prints black in a blue tone. I had Canon customer service tell me it could be a malfunctioning print head. Is there a way to clean the print head using alcohol and will this possibly clean the head without damaging it? I have used this method on other printers. Does anyone have another suggestions.

My Canon Pixma iP3000 printer worked fine when connected to my HP Vista computer. Now I have an HP p6616f-b with Windows 7 (64 bit) and I cannot find definitive info on the web as so whether or not they're compatible with one another. If they are, I'd need new software. Anyone know if compatible and where I could get software? Thanks

A:Canon Pixma iP300 compatibility with Win 7

Have you tried the Canon website?

Here's the link:

The printer is compatible and Windows will download the driver from Microsoft Update as per the information from the above link. You can download additional software from the Canon website for it though from the link above.
You can also check the Microsoft Compatibility site located here: ip3000&Type=Hardware&tempOsid=win7

I have a Canon Pixma iP5000 printer. It worked fine for about one year but now has all print jobs have a pink colour, to the partial exclusion of blue. I have tried all the suggested maintenance procedures, alignment, clean print heads etc and I have checked the installation of the print cartridges. I have also re-installed the software.
Any help and suggestions would be appreciated.

Anyone know why my magenta cartridge gets contaminated with black ink when the printer is left unused for a few hours?

Sounds like the black cartridge may be leaking.

The printer won't start and the YELLOW ALARM light is flashing.

The Canon Troubleshooting Guide advises to count the number of flashes and then refer to the User Manual.

I cannot find anything in the User Manual that indentifies errors in terms of number of flashes.

Anyone know where to find these error messages ?

I just got my
Canon PIXMA MG6450 out the box that my new job bought for me. I've pulled the tabs out as directed, plugged it in, the orange triangle with a bolt in it light is on, and when I press 'on' it does nothing. All other forums on the Internet keep saying 'go into settings..' Etc but it's literally not turning on to do anything. No idea with technology and don't know what to do any help greatly appreciated!!

I recently bought this Canon product and it worked very well for about - months but when we came back from vacation the black color faded and and gradualy disappeared I took the cartridges and the print head to the guys that refilled my cartridges no problem here only second refill no leaks or dryed ink problems and they told me that the Canon MP520 Pixma Problem printer head was clogged and that the pump that was responsible for the cleanining and deep cleaning funtions was not powerfull enough to unclog the head They unclogged the print head Canon Pixma MP520 Problem and it worked fine for the next - pages By the t page black vanished again I took the printer head back to the guys and they told me that it doesent have a problem So one out of two It s indeed clogged and i need to know what i can do to unclog it The printer head is uncloged and i don t have a clue what i m supposed to do now except posting on forums Thanks in advance nbsp

A:Canon Pixma MP520 Problem

The print heads on the 520 are odd ones, if not unique for this type of machine from Canon - most of the other #8 based machines have the Black #8 in them as well - the MP520 doesn't, and uses that large #5, which is meant for text printing as its black - this is not the normal photo ink, which the #8s have in them, and is a bit thicker than the other colors (including the #8 Black). This means that it will clog a bit more often, including deeper clots between the actual head and the cartridge. What the refillers are using are flow sensors, which only detect if the ink is moving through the assembly, not if they are impeeded, and do so with a bit more pressure than what the printer normally generates.

What does all this mean? Well, here's what I would do...

1 - Using 409 or Fantastik (NO WINDEX) and a Q-Tip, I would clean all electrical contacts between the print head assembly and the printer (all those spots on the face of the print head, and all the little wire contacts inside the machine) to make sure no ink overspray is causing faulty print quality.

2 - Ye Old Desert Dish Trick - Take a desert dish and put a layer of 409 or Fantastik on it, and lay the PRINT HEADS into it (DO NOT SUBMERGE THE ASSEMBLY INTO THE 409 or FANTASTIK - only the print heads on the bottom) While it sits, make sure you keep the ink cartridges sitting in their respective slots, as you don't want the top of the print heads drying either. Come back an hour or so later and scrub the heads with a Q-Tip and the cleaner. Wet the contacts with the Q-Tip and reinstall into the printer WET. Insert the cartridges and run the printer through a head cleaning.

3 - If this doesn't help it out... it's time to consider contacting Canon for new heads, since these old ones are not working. Unfortunately, since you used a refill service, any warranty was voided, so Canon would charge you for the heads.
