    This printer came free when I purchased a camera. I don't know what kind of cable I need to attach it to the printer. No instructions came with it!!!

I have a Windows 7 machine. By default, windows 7 assigns the LPT1 port to the printer. Make sure it is set to use USB.

I'm getting the same problem, I think it's something to do with conflicting with my flash drive. All is well until I put in a flash drive and even take it out again. I then need to reboot the PC, there must be a fix for this!!

Canon MP470: "Print Head is not installed. Install Print Head"


Some printer brands have a cute scheme that reads a "new" cartridge as good, but the refilled one has a small fuse link that is burned out by the printer. Try factory new cartridges. Unplug the printer power for a bit to reset the printer.

Many 'refilled' cartridges aren't refilled. Try a new c artridge and see what happens. If it still doesn't work, you need a new print head.

2-sided printing


The option you're after is "duplex" which is in the "printing preferences" (printers > MP470 (right click) > printing preferences)

I believe the MP470 doesn't have a built in duplexer so this would require you to manually put the first printed page back in, as per the instructions which usually accompany the printing job.

From painful experience it requires a little out-of-body viewing ability to put yourself through the path the paper will take to understand how it goes in.

...BUT once you've got it, I'd recommend making a note with a template you can pin to a wall or similar so you don't have to go through the whole "how does it work again?" process.

Printing blank paper


try a few things, your printer maintenance my need to be adjusted, such as settings. i have one at work and i hate it, canon printers are so non-user friendly. do you have both a black and a color cartridge in it, if so you will have to tell it in the maintenance settings, if you only have one or the other installed you have to put both in it wont print with only one cartridge. if you just bought it and still have everything that it came with...take it back and buy a lexmark.
