Firmware update hosed my printer!!

A failed firmware update has hosed my printer, a canon mx310...is there any way to reset the thing, as simply re-running the update proves fruitless...any ideas?

    I have the same problem. Accendently I downloaded the firmware instead of the drivers :(. During the installing procedure the upgrade stops and notifies me that it received an error. I tried several things, installing it again, but nothing helps. Is there a button for resetting the MX310 printen?

    Ditto this! I tried updating mine using the OSX updater, and it froze near the end so the firmware is corrupt now. I tried again using Windows, but same result. The printer is unusable now. Help?

I should imagine the firmware has stored incorrectly onto the IC chip (memory) within the printer, it is normally possible to just replace this chip, and then reinstall the firmware onto a blank chip, or contact CANON and ask them if yuu can be a pre programmed chip for your specific printer, hope this helps

How do I run a firmware update to a canon mx310


Firmware is downloaded from the manufacture.
if you go to www.canon.com
go to your country. Go to support and downlaods.
get your model entered.
Once selected it will take you to the model (mx310) and you can select the firmware to download.
you will have to run it on your computer and usually can hit run when you are downloading it.
Here is a link to your model it may or may not work. hope this helps
thanks

NO COLOR PRINT


Probably a bad purge assembly, one side cleans black and the other cleans color. Sometimes the hoses come off underneath, and sometimes the pump just fails.

I lost my cd to install canon MX310 software


Hi
You don't need the CD, just go to this site: Driver Update and use their software to update your driver.
Wish you best of luck

How can i make phone calls on canon mx310?


Are you sure the phone cable is in the right jack? Look for the icons beside the 2 jacks - the one that looks like a phone connects to the phone. You should also apply Canon's firware update at http://www.canon.com and search for fumx310swin1040en.exe if you have Windows or for an iMac the file is MX310 series Firmware Upgrade Utility Ver. 1.040 (Mac OS X) with a file name of fumx310sosx1040en.dmg

Too bad Canon can't be bothered to email it's registered users to notify them that the machine they sold us was shipped with defective firmware and attach the fix to the message to save us from hunting for the solution.
