    My canon mx850 also is plugged in, connected with a 9.8 ft. high speed usb 2.0 device cable, and does not respond to printing command from my dell inspiron laptop 600m. Instead, it makes a clicking sound. The In Use/Memory button also flashes. On the laptop it says that the printer is offline and to make sure the printer is connected and the power is on. They are.



    Any suggestions?

I had the same problem. I had moved my printer and when I hooked it all back up, there was an annoying clicking sound, the "in use/memory" light was flashing and there was no communication with my pc.

This is a tad embarassing, but if it helps someone, so be it lol. I had plugged everything in without looking.... my usb cable was plugged into the phone jack >.<.

Check all your connections.... then check them again ;)

Im having problems with my canon printer


I'm not exactly sure what causes this problem, but here is what I did to solve it on the Canon MX850.

Go to Canon, search for your printer model (I searched for MX850, but you would do MX700), click drivers and downloads, and download the IJ Network Driver as well as the MX700 series MP Driver.

Install the IJ Network Driver first. It will require the printer be connected via USB, even if you use a network. Then install the MP Driver.

After that I was able to scan to the computer.

It is possible that your ink cartridge is damaged. Try using an old ink cartridge that worked before and try to print again.Even if the ink cartridge you are using is full of ink, when sensitive electrical components are damaged, it wouldn't work.

You can also try using a different printer to rule out the possibility that your computer is the problem.

Error Number : 300 The printer does not respond. Make sure that the printer is plugged in, powered-on, and properly connected to your computer.


I had this problem with a Canon IP5200R connecting to a Mac Book Pro running Leopard. I had setup the printer as per instructions using the setup utility, could print a test page using the utils but could not print from an app.

My solution was to delete the printer (System Prefs > Print & Fax) listed in the system preferences and then re-add by clicking the '+' in the pref panel, then selecting 'More Printers' from the popup window. If you have the printer connected to the network correctly it should show up and you can simply re-add it. My printing now works correctly.
