SOURCE: Canon pixma mp 250 won't

Hi there.. i understand that you're having troubles printing from your computer because of that error message.. dont worry im here to help you out with that..
Here's what you can do:

  1. At the device or at the electrical outlet, disconnect the power cord or adapter (while the printer is turned on).

  2. Wait approximately ten to twenty seconds and then reconnect the power cord.

  3. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request.
normally the reason why it is saying that error message its because the printer is not responding so that's why we will need to power reset you printer..
If you have any other questions, dont hesitate to reply on this message.. thanks and Good Luck!

I had the same problem, and this is the fix.

1. Go to Canon's website and find the "Drivers and Downloads" section. From there, you will need to specify the subcategories of your hardware, and then your specific model (for example: Hybrid (i.e.-Printer & Scanner), Inkjet, MP470 Series)

2. When you find the proper page for your model printer, select your operating system from the drop down list.

3. Scroll down the page. You will see all versions of the drivers and programs to download. Download the latest version of the driver. You should also download the "My Printer" program. This is useful for troubleshooting and maintenance.

4. Keep scrolling until you find the "MP Navigator" program. This is a very important program, and is necessary for the scanner to operate properly. Download this program.

5. One MP Navigator is downloaded, verify that the scanner will use this program when it operates. To do this, go to the Start menu, click on Control Panel, click on Scanners and Cameras, click the printer that you will be using, then click properties. Click the tab at the top that says "Events." You will then see a drop down menu with the options Save to PC, Save as PDF, etc. Verify for each option that your computer is either opening the MP Navigator program, or that the computer will prompt you on which program to open.

This should get your scanner working. Hope this helps!

When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

I HAVE THE MX420 WHATS THE APP THAT I HAVE TO DOWNLOAD TO PRINT


If you don't have the original installation disc, you can go to the manufacturer's website and download the software you'll need. This page has the driver and software.
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mx_series/pixma_mx420#DriversAndSoftware
If you plan on using it wirelessly, you might need to be plugged directly into your computer when doing this initial installation. The cable should have come with the printer and has a USB connection for your computer and the other end will go in the back of the printer. Follow the steps that should be there after you download the file. It's not an "app" you need, it's the "software". Good luck! Canon Support Drivers PIXMA MX420

Hi my cannon MX 420 wouldn't scan if I tried to use the button on the printer. However if I opened the printer file from control panel, there was an option for scanning, which worked great. In the scanning options box read and choose each time you scan. Hope this helps
