My Canon CLC 1180 worked last week printing from any program we used. Now for some odd reason it won't print from any program/software like Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop. Tried and installed the latest driver I could find and all that seems to allow me to do is print through programs that just use a default print setting like Preview or Mail (unless there is some other print driver i should try). Physically the computer looks to actually send the file to the printer, we are able to select the printer and all printing specifications, but after the file sends on the computers end it just seems to disappear and never even shows up. Its like the computer is rejecting the file. Also, I am using a Mac OSX platform.

The paper on the CLC-1180 is held to the Transfer Drum by static attraction. Certain papers or media will not work with machine. One thing you can try is to check the flex the paper. Flex the paper and see which way it has the most flex. If the paper has more flex or bend in the Landscape direction load the paper in the Letter "R" direction, or Portrait direction (letter). If the paper is too stiff it will conform to curvature of the transfer drum and Jam.
Canon does not recommend the use of Transfer Material in the CLC series. Canon does have a recommended Heat Transfer Paper for Fabric item # 6094A082AA that will work with the copier.
Canon does recommend aftermarket transfer paper do the damage possible to the fixing rollers. It's possible you could get a Service Tech to adjust the Attraction charge in the copiers service mode to make this paper work better. The CLC 1100 series this very fussy about paper and some papers will just not work. The newer Canon Color copiers use a Transfer Belt which eliminate the bends and provide a straight through paper path much improving the performance with odd or heavy papers.
Depends on what you want to do with the copier. This a graphic's machine if you require high quality photo type output this is a perfect machine. It's not fast and will not run heavy stocks. It performs best with Hammermill color laser paper. If optioned with the Fiery Print Controller it will produce great print from photoshop and other graphics programs.
The CLC-1180 is Service intensive and will require frequent service calls and I highly recommend you have a service contract.
If you just require general office color such as Powerpoint , Word and don't require photo quality output, I would recommend the ImageRunner C-3200, ImageRunner C-3380 or ImageRunner 5180. These machines require less service and cost less per copy to operate.
No, you can not print on a #10 envelope. The copier is not designed to. There are to many bend that have to be made to make a copiy and it has to wrape around the transfer sheet / drum. I take it you have tried and it jams ever time.....
Did you change the Magenta stater/ developer? A E020 code is saying that the toner desity is low. Try replasing the developer and run the ATDC for Megenta and see if that helps. You may have a problem with the developing ass'y it self. You may be able to take another colors dev. ass'y with the hopper open and see if the code goes away. The sub code 0124 means that it is the Magenta dev. ass'y
