Question about Canon W8200PG InkJet Printer

Pc and printer wont talk to each other

Hi i have just bought a Canon W8200 wide format printer but i cant get my pc to talk to the printer. I have just done an ipconfig on my pc and i have found my ip address, the submask and the default gateway. when i put these values in the into the printer it will not print. I was told that when i put the ip address in the printer to change the last digit but to keep it in the same range, so i changed 2 to 3 on printer and still no joy. i have also tried a ping and i am getting timed out messages. i have tried crossover cables too and still no good. I cannot consult manuals as it was bought second hand and i did not get any installation software, but have downloaded the drivers from canon. i also have tried running through a wirelss router but yet again still no joy. any intructions to solve this problem would be appreciated and even though i'm not a computer whizz i can work my way around a pc (just) i am running windows xp thanks

    thanks for your help but still no joy.

    got a little bit further on the driver install as the w8200 came up in a "add printer" window.

    when i used the utility program i had to re-input the ip,subnet mask and g/w default back in to the printer menu.

    I did a ping on ip,subnet mask and g/w default which test ok, but the ip that printer is set to, i get timed out messages.

    i have tried all combinations of crossover cable and normal ethernet cable. i have tried direct from pc to printer and through a netgear wireless router with both cables.

    any more ideas?

    thanks in advance

I own a canon w8200 pigment large format printer. I replaced two cartridges, Magenta and Yellow. The printer did a nozzle check that seemed to take too long. I then received a 'waste ink tank full'...

1.Waste ink absorber
Use SERVICE MODE>COUNTER>PRINTER>W-INK to check the waste ink
absorber. Replace if the waste ink level is near the limit (14400).
After replacing the tank, perform SERVICE MODE>INITIALIZE>W-INK.

The printhead is clogged.

See the following guide:

Error code on canon w8200

Clean the round rod that the print head moves along and also the metal work above where the carrage rollers run.
I wipe mine with a drop of oil after cleaning as error is indicating that the carrige is sticking and not moving at the correct speed.

Canon imagePROGRAF W8200 InkJet Printer Problem Printhead Error! Turn Power Off!

you need to enter a service mode before the error message pops up. hold down paper source button + online.
that should override the message before it pops up.
go to replace print head selection. or do a clean. it may still be working. let me know if this doesn't work....but at least you can still get past the message now! marty
