I have just downloaded the MP navigator in order to scan from my Pixma MP160, which I have had for 3 years now, but have never used it for scanning. The icon appeared on my desktop, but when I press the scan button and I choose MP navigator as the program to use, it tells me that the driver is not installed. How is this possible? I downloaded it from the Canon site and I do not see any separate downloads for drivers...

Does anyone know what I should do?

Thanks

Someone seems to have left Canon out of the dev loop for Win 10 drivers. Does anyone know of a workaround, or should I just set up a corporate account with Kinko's? I currently cannot print to paper, and sometimes I need to.

Hi,

I've been trying to install my printer (a Canon PIXMA MP499) to my computer with a wireless connection and when I do the steps on the CDROM, it does everything okay but as soon as it gets to the MP Drivers it comes up with an error message saying "error occured while files were being copied. : 001 0000" . It also comes up with the same error message when I try and install it using a USB connection method.

If anyone can please give me a solution as quick as possible that would be really great!

Thanks

Make sure that when you are installing the software you are logged on as Administrator or an account with Admin. privileges. If that doesn't work try these:

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.

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.

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).

This is an extremely basic question ...

I only turn my printer on when I need to use it, which is not too often. By chance, I happened to look at Control Panel/System/Device Manager/Disk Drives while it was connected, and I was quite astonished to see the following entry:

Canon MP600Storage USB Device

followed by all my regular HDs (3 in all).

Is this normal under VISTA? I ask as I have some problems with certain USB-attached devices, and am trying to isolate the problem.

Bought a Canon MP 750 on Wednesday. Seems to print well, but not happy with the results of walk up copy and also scan to computer/print.

Original printing from the computer, print alignment, print nozzle checks etc are all OK. It seems there is a problem with the scanning - copies come out significantly less colour intense, at times with bits even missing from the copy.

Rang Canon for support and returned machine to store on Friday & got a second one. It seems to fare no better.

At this stage I will be ringing Canon again on Monday - but in the meantime I'm interested to hear from anyone else with this machine.

Can anyone tell me what happens when you select the copy button, and then "colour"? Do you get the following message:

Colour copying......

or do you get

Scanning.....

followed by a request for the next page or to click OK to exit?
This then followed by

Colour copying....

as above?

The reason I ask is that on the first machine we only ever got "colour copying" followed by the scan and the print out.

On the second machine, the first two times we did a copy it gave us the scan message on the display first, followed by the copy message. However from the third copy on it has always only ever been "colour copying...."

If I use the software to scan into the computer I can set different scanning resolutions....but when I print out I don't see any marked improvement.

My Canon Pixma MP series printer is not working.

When I turn it on, it makes a shuddering noise and then flashes the codes E 3 on the display. It makes the same sound then when I turn it off.

Writing to Canon, they thought it was a paper jam which is more or less impossible as there is no paper in the machine. Then they advised to disconnect the printer from the power supply to reset it. This hasn't worked. Their final suggestion is that there is a hardware fault. However, as there is only one service centre in the UK, by the time I can get it fixed (even though it is under warranty), it would certainly cost quite a bit in postage...

I've been advised by others to try cleaning the chrome bar which I have done now and to try and force a bit of thick paper through to clear out any remnants which may be in there. I'm not sure how I would accomplish this as there is no form feed button and it has never been easy to make it grab the paper anyway...

I've since been made aware that these phantom paper jams seem to be a common problem with Canon Pixmas... I heard someone could fix them by removing and replacing the paper tray which would be easier if I had a front-loading machine.

Any advice which will save me buying another printer would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

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 just installed new color and black and white ink cartridges and now all of my emails and internet print jobs are printing in a light blue - documents in Word print fine in black and white. The nozzle check printout only showed light blue and black. Does this mean that my ink cartridges are faulty? It was working fine prior to replacing both cartridges. Thanks.
 

A:Canon Pixma MX330 Problem

If you perform a test print, you should get a quality check of each color (ie: red/yellow/blue and black or magenta/yellow/cyan and black). If you aren't getting a proper test print, the ink is low/empty or the print head is clogged). There should be cleaning and deep cleaning options in the printer options. You can attempt cleaning until the test print is correct.

Hi, i'm having problems with getting my scanner/printer to do anything. To begin with whenever i turned it on the LCD always said

"Printer error has occured. Turn off power then back on again. If problem persists see the manual"

and so i turn it off and the message only reappears, it seems to not be able to load properly.

I did get it to load once or twice, (how it hapenned is beside me) and successfully printed something off, but on attempting a scan the same message came up midscan. Now i'm back to square one, with only ever seeing the error message all the time and the printer/scanner giving me no options and not loading properly.

Does anybody have any good advice?

the driver discs also told me that the driver cant install properly either, am i likely to have these problems if my laptop only has Windows XP? Also, for some reason i think it only loads properly if it's been left off for hours, why is this?

For long distance calling I use a calling card which requires first calling the card company, using an 800 number, where I am asked for my card number followed by either "1" or "2" and then the number which I wish to call, also followed by a "1" or "2". Can someone tell me the series of steps which I need to take in programming in this sequence of numbers into this Canon MP780 printer? TIA.

Has anyone ever run into this crazy problem? I have a Canon Pixma 4300 that I got bundled with my MacBook pro. It's been sitting on my desk inert ever since. I cannot get it to print anything, anytime. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers at least twice, reset the printer... I don't think it's a communication error because my laptop sees the printer, can check the ink, etc. Once I reinstall the drivers I can always print a test page exactly once, then never again. I get no error messages. Nothing.

Opening the print queue box it shows what ever job I'm attempting to print as "printing" but the printer never actually prints anything. If I pull the plug on the printer with a job in the queue I get a "can't communicate with printer" message, which tells me communication isn't the issue.

I'm running OS 10.6.8 on a 2007 MacBook pro. I know it's not my laptop since I've never had any problem with any other printer, including a PIXMA Pro 9000.

I'm thinking there's something either super easy to fix or that this printer is just a lemon that needs to go in the trash. Canon has been very unhelpful. Every once in a while I'll dust this thing off and try to make it work. Is it time to give up?

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

Have you tried the Canon website?

Here's the link: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/suppo...xma_ip_series/pixma_ip3000#DriversAndSoftware

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.

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?

I recently bought this Canon product and it worked very well for about 6-7 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 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 and it worked fine for the next 4-5 pages. By the 6t 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:

1. It's indeed clogged and i need to know what i can do to unclog it
2. 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.
 

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 h... Read more

Hi folks,

This is driving me nuts: Back in the fall when I switched over to Windows 7 Home Premium x64 from Vista Home Premium SP2 x64, I installed the software for my Canon Pixma MX700 multifunctional printer. I used the original Vista driver installer disc, and despite an warning message about a "known compatibility issue" the printer and scanning 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 "scanner not connected" 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 7 x64 and installed them. Still get the same errors.

Tried setting it up to scan via USB temporary connection. If I install it that way... Read more

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 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.

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 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.

I have tried aligning the heads manually and automatically but to no effect.

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.

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.

I'm about ready to dump the printer, but perhaps someone here can help me fix this mystery jam.

When I go to print something, the paper feeds in crooked on the left side, and then I get the jam error. I've felt around in the bottom of the paper feed and I can't find any problem or jammed paper there either. I'm using the paper loader on the back of the printer, not the sheet feeder or anything, and I'm using regular cheap office printer paper.

I read on fixyourownprinter.com about checking the purge unit. Is that something I should try?

Thank you for any help you can give me!

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.
Thanks for your time!

Hi

My Canon MP220 worked perfectly well until my computer totally crashed some months ago. The computer was completely reinstalled to the original settings.

Since then the printer & copier work on the MP220 but the scanner does not. I have reinstalled drivers OK. However, I do not have the original disk which installed the program that I used to scan.Any ideas please.

Thanks

I just got this Canon pixma mp620 printer used and put new ink cartridges in the printer. The printer starts up ok and starts to do it's start up routine but never completes the routine. The cartridge/head assembly slams into the left stop with a loud thud and a grinding of gears. Then the assembly just sits there and an error message of 5100 pops up on the screen. Can this printer be fixed? Or did I just wast money on a piece of junk.
 

A:i keep getting an error message on a canon pixma mp620

It shouldn't "slam" to the left. I'd say a sensor is bad or it's out of alignment. I don't know if it can be fixed or not. Printers now are throwaway items. You can replace it cheaper than you can get someone to look at it. Manufacturers don't even perform repairs when it's under warranty, they simply replace it...as it's cheaper.

Hi all,

When i turn on my printer i get:
"One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it"
"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.

Thanks.

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.

Hi there everyone!

I was fooling around in a computer shop and I saw this All-in-one, I absolutely fall in love and also with the price ($78 USD!!!) I just would like to know if this device is good, I worked with a canon printe before and no problems until it died (lasted for about 3 or 4 years of no rest) it is better to know the opinion of the experts related to this All-in-one.

Thanks in advance for your advices

See ya!!!

A:Is the Canon PIXMA MP250 a good choice?

Cannons are generally good printers. Though I've seen a couple of people on these forums having strange issues with them on x64 systems.
I don't know if it's isolated or a sign of a software problem on cannon's side though.

On a footnote I bought a hp printer not long ago just because of the cheap price.
The paper feed on it is enough to send you into fits though. It will feed paper through and say there is no paper, or my personal favorite it will say there is no paper in the tray constantly when it is in fact full. Cleaning and resetting have no effect on the problem.

Hollyoaks try two things one is install this driver http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/Consumer_Products/products/Fax__Multifunctionals/InkJet/PIXMA_MG_series/PIXMA_MG3150.aspx

I am assuming you have used the Windows feature which I am not a great fan of and also try a cable hook up.

Some system specs would be handy too so that we can see what hardware you have in the machine especially what wifi adaptors you have

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.

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.
