You need to install your printer first.

If you already have installed your printer, do this:

disconnect printer from computer
cancel documents in queue
if using a straight USB connection, delete all instances of printer. else remove duplicate printer icons.
reboot & reconnect printer (swap cables if not detected)

If you don't have installed your printer do this:

Get your printer software from: www.canon.com

USB printers (Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP only)

  1. Make sure that the USB cable is unplugged from your computer and your printer. USB devices work differently from older devices and usually need to have the drivers installed before you connect the device.

  2. If you have an installation disk, insert it into the drive. If there is an installer provided, it should run or be executed here. Follow its instructions, and it should take care of installing your printer in a few moments.

  3. If you don't have an installation program, plug the USB cable into your computer and your printer. This should trigger the Add New Hardware Wizard.

  4. Click Next, and then select Search for the best driver for your device. Click Next.

  5. Uncheck all options except Specify a Location. Click Browse. Browse to the disk, CD, or directory where your printer drivers are located. Click OK, and then click Next twice. Note: You can download some drivers from the web. Consult the web site of your printer's manufacturer, or see Where can I find driver updates for my Windows computer?
  6. When all the files are copied, click Finish.

  7. Turn on your printer. Windows should detect the printer's presence and finish the installation. If the option to print a test page is offered, do so. This will confirm the installation. Click Finish.

  • POWER button is pressed, release the STOP / RESET, then press the STOP / RESET 2 times in a state of the power button is pressed.
  • Release both buttons simultaneously.
  • The printer will proceed in a while (a while), then the LCD panel will show the number zero (0)

  • Press the power button, then the printer will die.
  • Press the power button again, then the printer will be lit and ready for use.

Hanif, Go to

and download the necessary drivers and burn a CD for future.
Connect the printer to the PC and Allow Windows to detect it. When it asks for drivers point to the directory where you have downloaded the drivers.

I need to download the software/Canon Pixma MP 240 series printer


http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=2610&modelid=17161#DownloadDetailAct

go to this site and put in your operating system and you will get the drivers you require. I would uninstall the all of the older drivers reboot then install the new drivers. Remember not to connect your print to your computer until the new installing driver tell you to.
Hope this does the trick for you, good luck. Please leave a rating, thank you kindly
