1 Answer

Unable to connect printer to pc

I have been trying to connect my C5180 to my Vista PC, I download new drivers & anything else I thought I might need. The problem I am having is that it is not even showing when I plug it in, and I also have used different pc and USB cable.
I like the printer, but I right now it is just a very big paper weight.

Ok this may sound silly but I had exactly the same problem with a Cannon, tried new cords from the same Computer shop and other PC's with no success, now for the good news, by chance I tried another brand of USB printer cord bought from BIG W and it burst into life. So I suggest try another brand. Also make sure your computer USB port is set for USB 2.

ML 2240 printer not detected by Windows 7


Hello,

Try installing it in safe mode.

To go to safe mode, do the following:

Restart and tap F8. Use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode with networking and hit enter. Install the driver from there and follow the on-screen instructions.

If no go, check the device manager of any question mark. There might be some outdated drivers that cause this problem. You can use RadarSync (free version) to scan your computer for outdated drivers.

After fixing all driver related issues, try installing the printer again.

I hope this helps!
