Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I have a cannon printer MP 610 connected to an Apple Mac. It has worked fine for the last 2 months but suddenly when I try printing, the document partially prints, stops and then I get the following message... Error Number : 306 A communication error has occurred. Make sure that the printer is plugged in, powered-on, and properly connected to your computer. Then try printing again. All connections are fine and the printer is definitely turned on! Why is this suddenly happening and what can I do about it? Thanks Katrina

SOURCE: i turned power off printer in order to stop it

Hi there
You can try see if this may do it.

Go to Start / Run and type in "services.msc" without quotation marks, then press Enter or click OK.

In the window that opens (Services) look for "Print Spooler" on the right

Right-click "Print Spooler" and select "Properties".

Click on the "Recovery" tab and change all 3 drop-down boxes to "Restart The Service".

Make sure the 2 text boxes underneath say "1" in them.

Click Ok until you are back at the Services window, close it and you're good to go.

Go back into the properties of the "Print Spooler" tab and be sure to click Start to restart the Print Spooler service and it will restart the service immediately.

The Print spooler depends on the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service. Is this service disabled? Go to services.msc look for RPC. Check state: Automatic

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
All The Best: Pineworks

A week ago my mx300, stop printing and can't recognize scanner. Scenario example: 1. Sending document from word or even try to print the test page, print's 1/3 page then stop saying printer is offline,...


Check to make sure you have the most recent software for your printer. Go to Canon's support website to check for the latest software: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mx_series/pixma_mx300#DriversAndSoftware

If that doesn't work, I've sometimes have had to uninstall a printer and it's software, and then completely reinstall it again for it to work. Hope this helps.

I have a cannon MP 160 printer/scanner. It does not work on a Mac


Uninstall all your drivers (and delete the preferences) and download the Mac drivers from this link. The drivers that came with your printer were developed before Snow Leopard came out.

Printer prints blank sheets


I would suggest resetting the printer options to Default first. If that doesn't do it then reinstalll the complete printer software and be sure to deleted all the old software. To delete files completely download <AppCleaner> it's free and is fantastic. Your last resort is to then call Epson Tech Support.

Cannot scan to mac from a cannon mf4150


There is not yet Mac driver support for the scanner portion of this printer.  The printer should work fine, but no scanner as of yet.  Too bad no one told me at the Office store when I bought it.

Pixma MP150 won't print


i cant help you with your problem completely but every time i change the ink the printer states to install the correct cartridges and or that my ink level is low and will not print

all previous occasions with the cannon mp150/160 if there's such a word as stubborn can apply to computer printers i have had to keep rebooting the programming that is switching off and on at length the power supply until the printer finally works or offers the alternative message to press the start button

i have 2 cannon printers mp150 and mp160 because it is just about the same price to buy a new printer than 2 new cartridges

keep rebooting it may take up to 15-30 minutes!
