Driver for Canon LBP-1120 Lasershot on W7 x64

Q: Driver for Canon LBP-1120 Lasershot on W7 x64


I have been searching several websites, downloaded a lot of junk and tested a great many so called solutions. In spite of all efforts I could not find a working solution for the LBP-1120 on W7 x64.
Although I guess most LBP-1120 users got tired of searching and simlpy threw away their printer, I refuse to do that. So I'm running it on Virtual PC under W7 x64, a complicated afair if one has to print just a few copies. The latest thread on this (and most other forums) is of 2009, so did anything happen after that date?
Does any one know of a working (tested!)driver solution for this printer? It's a shame that Cannon did not provide a decent driver. The vista / W7 x64 does not run on x64 platforms in any mode! Even for old Epsons I was able to find W7 x64 drivers.

Kind regards,
The Netherlands

A: Driver for Canon LBP-1120 Lasershot on W7 x64

First, make sure you uninstall any previously installed printer drivers in add/ remove programs which may conflict with the installation.

Check Device Manager for driver issues.

Select the newest version from the list. Then click download.

Do not turn on the printer until the software is installed.

Hi EugeneBek,

Welcome to the forum.

Sorry, the only drivers I can find for the Canon LBP 1120 are the 32 bit ones. There are no 64 bit ones for this printer yet from what I see.

I'm going mad trying to use this printer!
I have found only the Vista 32bit drivers.
I tried to install them (by manually select them, not with an exe application, so I can't choose the vista or xp compatibility check) to my windows 7 32bit but at the end I got an error about the spooling service that was blocked during running.
can anyone please help me? thanks!

It is best to uninstall the old drivers and run the exe file in compatibility mode for the new driver.

Hi sorry for probably another printer issue but this one is a little odd.

I have a canon pixma ip3000 and when i installed it on my W7 64, windows update found it and made it work...great

Problem is my dad is having the same problem with his newer canon pixma ip4500 except windows update isnt finding a driver for it.

The canon site only has this add on driver for some maintenance utillity but doesnt actually have the main driver ! so how can we get this newer model working ?

Thanks for any advice

Download the Vista driver from Canon. You may have to install it in Compatability Mode.
If you are using Win 7 64bit get the Vista 64bit driver. Win 7 32bit get the Vista 32bit driver.

Here is the tutorial. Option One or Two.

I notice that there are a number of posting in regards 64-bit drivers for Canon printers but no other posting for the Canon LBP 5100. I purchased this printer around 12 months ago and simply love it, mainly due to the auto duplex that make printing out PDF such an easy task.

I intend building a new computer in the coming months and have more or less decided on installing Windows 7 Home Premium or Pro (Retail) 64-bit. The only major problem I can see with the 64-bit is with the Canon Printer LBP 5100, the canon website shows a 32-bit driver for Vista but no 64-bit versions. Contacting Canon NZ I received a reply stating that as far as they can ascertain there will be no 64-bit drivers for this printer unless Canon Japan decides different.

Questions please: I have been told that Windows 7 will come with a driver for the Canon LBP 5100 but can't find any information in regards this, so my question is does Windows 7 come with a driver for this printer?
If it does will the auto duplex still work?

Anyone knows how to contact Canon Japan (in English) about a 64-bit driver for this printer?

Had anyone that uses this printer come across a work around for a 64-bit driver for this printer.

A:Canon LBP 5100 64-bit Driver

Their is a similar post above yours for the lpb 5000. And from their question I can ascertain that windows 7 doesn't come with a driver for your printer since they can't be theirs to work. Even if W& did cone with a driver it would be a printer driver (just basic ) and most likely wouldn't include the applications needed for duplex. Sorry but after 7 is released on the 22 nd maybe with enough inquiries cannon will get with the program. But from their point of view i assume they would just rather sell you a newer model printer.

I uninstalled my Canon iP3000 software, and then when I tried to reinstall it, it got to a stage in the setup process where it asks you to connect the printer to the PC. But where the PC would normally detect a new hardware device, it didn't. My guess is that the driver wasn't uninstalled, although when I look under drivers, I can't see anything under Canon. (I have Windows XP pro). The installation cannot proceed without this, and the computer doesn't detect the printer.

I had originally installed the printer software with Ashampoo, so I used that uninstaller to uninstall, but it seems even that didn't detect everything.

Could anyone offer me some advice?

The software that ARE checked is MP drivers, On screen Manual, My printer, My image Garden, Quick Menu, Adobe RGB (1999), and Easy web-print EX. The bottom software is ''XPS driver'' and it is not checked...Do I need to check this or not?

I have a Lenovo Flex 3 1120. When I bought it, I went for the hard drive option that had the cheapest price since all the other options were HDD of various sizes and I knew I was going to upgrade to SSD anyway. The flex 3 I have though, does not have a HDD and uses an eMMC embedded storage. When I went to install the SSD, there is an empty space for where the hard drive would sit and there is no SATA connection. There is a socket in the board that is labeled "SATA conn1" but no cable.
I called support and was told it is possible to use the SSD and boot from it. The cable and caddy can be purchased but she said Lenovo will not supply the part. I found the part number I think,  1109-01051, but apparently no one else sells it either. There was one on ebay, but it's gone. anyone know where I can find one?

update: the item number is actually 5C10J08424. I still had a hard time a seller with it in stock. One website wanted about $70 for it not including shipping. I finally found/bought one on for about $20 including shipping. I'll update once I get to try it out.

Hi there @JPMESQ, I hope you find your Support Forum experience a positive one! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you have a question about USB compatibility. I am happy to help with this. According to the USB 3.1 specification, which is referenced here: USB -, "The USB 3.1 standard is backward compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0." So in terms of the connection it should work, but the performance will be limited by the slower standard. It is possible that some devices using USB 3.1, may not themselves not be backwards compatible, but that would be a case by case issue. I hope that addresses your question, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

Hello, need help!

I have a Windows 7 64-bit PC. I have downloaded the S820 driver from Canon's site, but it keeps failing on me. The PC recognizes the printer, but as an USB device. It won't let me print to it. It only gives me 3 options when I right-click on the printer - Create Shortcut, Troubleshoot, Properties.

I was told the INFCache.1 file was causing issues with USB devices. I went and deleted that file, unplugged the USB plug, reinstalled the driver, plugged it back in. It recreated the INFCache.1 file and it tried to install the printer, but it failed.

I thought it was a compatibility issue, so I tried the XP driver, Vista driver, etc. and none of those worked.

I haven't worked with Windows 7 much, so Windows 7 gurus, please help out a n00b.

Just after some help with the MP780 on 7 x64.

The printer is plugged in via USB to another machine on the network. On the 7 machine I am running through the add printer wizard, which finds the printer and looks for drivers.

The first problem is that it can't find the MP780 drivers on Windows Update, which I think it should.

After it fails there, it asks to find the inf manually. I have downloaded the drivers from the Canon Australia website but that's just an installer. I have also downloaded drivers from other random driver sites but it just gives me fax and scan infs, nothing else.

Any ideas for me?


A:Canon MP780 Driver Issue

OK if you can install this it might work - make sure the driver package is unzippped to a folder - or just select the setup.exe file and do the following if it wont unzip - this resolves an OS mismatch when the driver wont install on w7

To install a driver OR program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista/xp etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.

Driver page v6.20 - to download firstly click on the file, go to nxt page then - under disclaimer is download - select "i have read the instructions etc" then select download -in "red" and then click save

If that doesnt work try installing it thru device manager and pointing to the folder the driver is unzipped to.

Have a new Vista 64 Home Premium machine. Have a Canon i950 printer on my XP machine. Canon does not have a Vista driver for the printer. In these forums, found a post explaining there is a "driver add-on" that makes the i950 driver work in Vista.

Obtained the add-on. It requires that the "base driver" be installed (B3319MUX.EXE). When I run the driver's setup program, get "The Printer Driver Has Not Been Installed" message at the 60% completion point. Have tried the install in compatability mode and "run as administator" (Both XP and 2000), but get the same message. I am also logged in to an Administrator account.

Does anyone know of a way to get the base driver installed on Vista 64? Thank you.

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.

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.

After six working days of jumping through hoops, I have finally managed to install a brand new Canon LBP6650dn.

If anyone else is thinking of buying one in the UK, note that

(a) the supplied software disc is only compatible with Win 7 32bit

(b) Canon UK online and telephone support were basically no help and the drivers on the UK site do not work

(c) via a contact in Canon UK, I finally figured out the answer.

What you do is go to Canon U.S.A. : Consumer & Home Office : imageCLASS LBP6650dn
and follow the instructions.

This will install the printer as an "unspecified USB device".

Right click on that, run Windows troubleshooter, and when it tells you that the driver is missing, click on "Fix this problem".

Everything will then be sweetness and light - at least until you try to override the printer defaulting to single-sheet feed. But that's another story (which as yet has no end) ...

Which driver do/did you use? There are 3 there and they all have this note...

Before starting the driver installation, connect only the LAN cable first, do not connect the USB cable at this time.
This is necessary for your printer to acquire IP address automatically before you start the driver installation and enable driver installer function.

A:Canon Scanner driver problems

The issue IS that although the Canon supplied driver for the 64 bit Windows 7 OS loads the WIA driver is required for the scanner to operate.  The WIA driver that came with the 4200F is 32 bit and will not load.Contacted Canon support and finally got them to understand the situation.The outcome is that they are sorry for the inconvience - BUT there is no 64 bit WIA available.Looks like the only solution is to purchase a new, compatable, scanner.Canon won't get the business.Thanks to all.

I pulled an old printer out of the closet to use on a new PC that I am building...just to have a printer connected to it. It doesn't work with the print driver provided with WinXP and Canon no longer supports it. Does anyone know where I might find a print driver for it. It prints test pages very nicely.

I have a custom made computer Win 7 -Home Prem 64

My regular HP printer broke down (but was working wirelessly just fine)

So I want to substitute an old Canon Fax Phone L80 I have that worked OK on a Vista OS (another machine)

The system "found" the L80 as I plugged it directly into UBC

Says driver not found.......Win couldn't find one automatically and I have no disk

Manual downloaded a driver from Canon....I have no idea how the particular driver arrives and what file it is supposed to download to, maybe that's my problem,

Still can't find driver by hitting Add New printer.

Help file was incorrect, as to what tabs would appear when trying to manually download

So even though the L80 shows up in "Devices & printers" I can't get the driver driving!

What am I missing.........any ideas?

thanks in advance if you can give me a clue

Hi folks,

Her indoors is not happy!!

I have converted her Lenovo laptop into a dual boot (XP/7 32-bit) - the intention being to get everything she uses onto 7 and "convert her" to 7 too

In XP she has been happily using her wireless connected Canon MG6150 and was comfortable with its scanner driver (Scangear).

In 7 I located the printer on the network and Win 7 got the driver for it. The "printer side" of the driver is fine but the "scanner side" is very minimal (it's a WIA rather than TWAIN) and she's not a happy bunny.

Should I remove this printer and start over, using Canon's own software? Bearing in mind that this printer is already wirelessly connected, what's the best procedure - install the software first from Canon's site and then connect the printer? If so, how do I stop it from searching Windows Update for a driver?

Just to let you know, I removed the printer, downloaded the Canon software and driver, re-installed and I have a happy wife now

When I attempt to scan a document, the canon dr-2010c pulls it in half way then stops. It freezes and nothing else can be done. If I cancel and try again, an error message tells me the driver is busy. I have also gotten an error that the device cannot be locked and another program may be trying to use it. I do not have any other scanning software on the computer. Could this be a port problem? maybe the scanner is sharing a port with something else?? I have a HP deskjet and an Okidata printer installed, but they always work fine. I dont know what is causing this conflict. any ideas???

It's on the list of supported scanners for VueScan, which works without
requiring there be good Windows drivers installed.

It worked for me on Vista 64. You can try it free before paying for it. If you like it you can decide whether to buy the program or use the money for a new scanner. You don't need a driver for the Lide 30--this program does it all.

I've searched this online, but I haven't found a solution that works.

Basically, I have a Canoscan FB 320P Scanner, and no installation disk. I've downloaded the drivers from the Canon website, and a few other places. Anytime I try to scan anything, I get a common error message, that reads, "The parallel port may be used by another application 0x00060800"

I also have an HP Deskjet 695C connected with the scanner.

Then it tells me that it can't find the Twain source, to re-check the connection, and try again, but to no avail.

I want to get it so that at least the scanner shows up in the control panel under installed imaging devices. I tried going into the control panel, and adding a new imaging device. It always searches for an .inf file -- is that what I'm missing? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Anyone aware of a fix so that windows 7 64 bit can install and use caroscan 5000f flatbed scanner?

A:canon carascan 5000f driver

I just checked here - Film and Negative Scanners - USB Flatbed Scanner - CanoScan 5000F - Canon USA Consumer Products and see there are no Windows 7 drivers for that scanner

You could try Vuescan from Hamrick if you don't find a suitable solution. The software allows you to use your scanner on a 64-bit OS through its program by providing its own 64-bit driver. It usually offers more options and tweaks over the standard software issued with the scanner. The downfall (if you want to call it that) is it will set you back $40.00 for the Standard edition or $80.00 for the Pro edition. There is a 30-day trial version as well.

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.

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

Hi all,

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.

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.

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I have a Canon LiDE 200 scanner with an older driver.

I have tried uninstalling the scanner (in Safe Mode) and then restarting the computer, but it doesn't change anything. The new driver from Canon is just an executable and so it runs and installs itself somewhere, although when I check in Device Manager the old driver is still there.

Now if you have CS6 (on Windows 7) it comes with two versions of Photoshop—one is in the Program Files folder (64-bit) and the other is in the Program Files (x84) folder (32-bit). I opened Windows Explorer and navigated to the PS plug-ins folder in Program Files (x86), then I restarted Photoshop. Voila! Problem solved! I can now scan from my Canon LiDE via the PS File > Import menu.

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."

I have deleted i560 from my computer following the "uninstall" instructions on the setup page. That went smoothly. So, how do I respond to the "c is not a registered protocol" to start the installation?

W8 Release Preview 64 bit found my USB connected Canon Pixma iP5000 printer, but didn't install a driver. WU says there is an update available, but that will not install. 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.

Checking properties for this printer in Devices & Printers throws up the following event:?
Driver Management concluded the process to install driver prnca00m.inf_amd64_26559657092dd606\prnca00m.inf for Device Instance ID USBPRINT\CANONIP5000\7&8F48641&3&USB005 with the following status: 0xBC8.

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.

This printer is installed OK on my W7 installation on the same machine.

The 64 bit XP driver installed OK on this W8 RP installation, and printed a file OK, but attempting to upgrade results in the same error. After installing this XP driver, WU reported that the update installed, but Update History shows 'Failed'. Now WU isn't offering the update.

TIA for any help.

Does anyone know where I can get a W8 32bit driver for my Canon Pixma iP5000 printer? Canon just wash their hands of any responsibility.

I have a PC running Vista HP/32 with a Canon IP4300 installed via USB, specified as shared. No issues on that PC.

I also have a new laptop with Win 7 HP/64 which when we try to add the printer it can see the the printer, but says it can't find a driver. When we direct connect the IP4300 to the laptop, it installs the driver fine (driver is embedded in Win 7 so no disk is required).

When we put the printer back on the Vista PC, and try to add the IP4300 again as a network printer it continues to say it can't find a driver.

All other network aspects, sharing files/folder between the 2 pc's, are working 100% okay.

Is this because win 7 it trying to load a Vista driver? Can we load the driver manually, if so, where can we find the driver?

thanks for any advice here.

A:Canon network printing driver problem

What steps are you performing to add the printer? I have found that sometimes I need to click the "Add Devices" button instead of "Add Printer" button for a networked printer to get it to connect and work. Why, I have no idea.

Win 7 doesn't support the Canon BJC-4000 ink jet printer. Any other drivers that will work? I love this printer!

Double check the # on it cause it's not in the directory. It must be different since it doesn't pull up on my website I am checking.

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?

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.

Preciously I had my Canon i9100 installed on a windows XP machine and working well.
I have since updated to a windows 7 (64bit) machine and can't install the old driver from the CD. "The CD Rom cannot be used with the current operating system."
I am aware there is a patch which I have downloaded but it can't patch what is not there.
Please advise me of how to proceed.
