Question about Canon PIXMA MP170 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Computer shutdown When the printer is connected to the computer the computer is unable to shutdown. This occurs even if the printer is switched off after being used to eg print a word doco and is switched off before the computer is shutdown. THe computer seems to freeze whilst in the shutting down process. The only way to shutdown the computer is then to manually switch off.

Sounds Like a Corrupted Driver, or just a Bad Driver, that cannon rushed to make.

    ***sorry for incomplete post***
    Try downloading the latest drivers, the problem could also be Windows, or maybe even your motherboard. (for windows, check windows update, and check the firmware for your motherboard)

4) Now switch ON the PC(only PC and not the printer)

5) Let the PC boot up and login to windows.

Now you will be able to print.If not then follow the following steps.




Please be informed that any Printer Driver software depends upon the hardware make and Operating System. You need to know all these information's to do get going.

Please find the Driver software's of your printer inside the installation disk provided with the Printer at the time of purchase. As you have not mentioned your Printer make I am unable to give you the direct download link. However you can download the same by visiting the website of the company that manufactured the Printer.


Even here you need to be careful to download the correct software for your PC. You need to be exact with the Printer Model number and the OS that you are using.



To install just Double clock on the driver setup.exe file and go on clicking 'Next' until you get the 'Finish' option and restart the PC.




If you feel that my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote for best answer.

I share hp laserjet 1020 printer but when i shut down after start pc printer not access & unable to connect or access denied display occured on other pcs, what i do?


When you share the printer that is connected to your computer for other computers to use this printer, your computer MUST be left on at all times for the other computers to print to this printer.
The reason is, your computer acts as a print server, it collects the print data from the other computers and sends it to the printer.

Print cartridge
When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.
Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.
1. Open the top cover of the printer.
2. Remove the print cartridges.
3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth. Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.
5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.
6. Close the top cover.
7. Try printing again.
If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .

With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

Maxtor 3100 external drive


If the computer is connected to the power line, even if it is shutdown, you probably have in the BIOS settings the option to power it on from external sources like LAN, USB etc that is turned ON. So the USB port are still powered hence the external HDD is powered also.
