Question about Printers & Copiers

2 Answers

I have a new Canon Pixma MX850. I have installed the drivers/set up tool for my macbook and printed with no problem. Then I will take my computer with me to work, and come home and try to print. There is an error message saying that my printer is not responding. When I check the LAN settings, it shows my connection is inactive. So I have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers (clearing the printer to default settings each time) and go through the setup process again. This last time that I tried to do this, I'm not able to get it to connect with my network or recognize my ip address at all! I'm so frustrated...PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME!!!!!!

    OUr new MX850 has worked fine for 2 weeks after we bought it but now we are getting the "Printer not responding." error message and I cannot get it to work after following the instructions on the Canon site etc.

    MX850 was working fine after going through the install process. I could print and scan for about two months. After I lost power one night, I could no longer print from any of my computers. The printer's "Display LAN Details" screen reports the connection as "Inactive".

    I can print fine over USB, but that's not what I bought the printer to do. The online help tells me to make sure the connection is "Active", but it doesn't give any help beyond that.

I have a canon pixma MX850. I have connected to my network. Printing works fine. When I go to scan, the printer ask to which computer. I don't understand the question, much less the solution. Ho


Many machines allow network printing but not network scanning. I think you will find that the MX850 driver and MP Navigator software simply does not support network scanning. I suggest you query Canon directly.

Canon Pixma MX850 won't scan - says 'set the pc to start scan'


Do you have more than one PC connected to the scanner? I have both a PC and a Mac connected to it, and I think my scanner is trying to connect to the Mac, which requires image capture software to be installed, rather than the PC. Don't know how to tell it to go to the PC, though...

Colours of printed photos are wrong.


Have you run the head cleaning cycle recently? It should be under "Printer", "Maintenance" tabs.

Duplex printing flips page


That should be a setting somewhere in the printer or the print driver on the computer.
Here's a link to the manuals that comes with it.
