Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer
When trying to print, it refuses saying "error number 300"It's not opening the printer connection, even though everything is properly connected. I've already had that problem before, but by switching off the printer and restarting it, it worked. Now this trick does not do it anymore!
Disconnect and switch off printer from pc's usb port. Go to add/remove programmes and uninstall printer software and drivers. Go to printer and faxes folder or go through control panel and ensure the pixma printer is deleted, if not right click and delete. Re-start pc and install drivers from your printers cd rom and re connect printer when prompted and not before (if no prompt when software finishes connect printer). Your pc should then idenitify your printer and auto install drivers. If the same error occurs, it's more than likely a hardware failure, and requires replacing.
