1) Do the above.
2) Make sure you have connected ALL the cables, power adapter to the wall outlet, and the cable from the computer to the printer. You cannot misplug these because they all have different ports/ends. Check for power light indicator. Are there any noise when you power on the printer? If you do, try to feed the paper into the printer and do a sample print. (Also, make sure you have print cartridges...BIG deal! You will not be printing either way if you have power or not wi/o these, lol) If it prints, you will know the light is misinforming you (or lack thereof in this case).

Try to feed a paper to see if it's only the light that is busted or the whole unit.
Service is required if it's dead.

Usining an multimeter, if you are qualified to use one, chech the output from the printer end of the line cord with the line cord plugged in. If there is 120ac there the next step is to check the power supply. The cover would have to be removed. Can you do this? If not take to the shop.

Trying to get an canon mx450 wireless printer to print. I may have pushed reset. I can get printer to say connected and computer to read green light,


Offering some ideas here: You have paper in it, all the doors are closed all the way and if laser printer, the cartridge is in all the way in. Still for some reason it may be off line. I confess I haven't used Microsoft windows for some time but can you go to printers from control panel and try a test page. Check the program you print from go to File--Print and see if the printer shown is the one that you are trying to print to (sometimes someone in office switches it), or printer is shown in print dialogue window when you hold control and press the P key.

Unable to communicate thru WiFi to print


A solid green Wi-Fi light indicates that it is connected to a wireless network. An orange light indicates that it is not connected to a network.
Another way to determine if your printer is connected to your network is to print the wireless network setup page. From the printer operator panel, press the Setup button (wrench icon) > Network Setup > Print Setup Page. Your printer will then print the network settings. Check the SSID, signal strength, or trouble code.
A quick fix to this problem (especially if your printer was working fine before with your wireless network) can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC.

My printer wireless indicator is flashing red and I cannot print


The flashing status of the WiFi light on the printer indicates that it's either trying to connect to a wireless network or it has gotten disconnected from your wireless network.
A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, check the WiFi light status. Try to print again.

Printer Acting strangely - red led appears after 13 seconds.


If the red error light is on by itself this indicates a Fatal Error: Fatal error indicates one of the following: ? HP sensor lever or PE sensor lever does not move smoothly. ? HP/PE sensor is defective. ? CR motor is defective. ? PF motor is defective. ? Main board is defective. ? Printer Housing is not secured with screw on the printer mechanism. You could try reflashing the firmware which sometimes helps to rectify this error.
