Question about Canon PIXMA MP470 All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

Vista recognizes printer, but nothing happens after job queues

I finally was able to get Vista to recognize the printer by installing SP1 and then obtaining latest driver from Canon online support. Now, the issue is such: I can send a job to the printer via any program on Vista, the job queues, and then automatically deletes prior to anything being printed. The printer never twitches, despite being on, loaded with paper, good ink, etc. This is a brand new printer. Any help on how I can fix this issue would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Turns out it was a bad USB 2.0 cable. Finally tried the most simple fix, last, and of course, that's what worked. Just had to replace the cable.

HP LaserJet 4100 for all applications in windows 7. When I go to print a document and click on print. The print screen exits, the print job doesn't processes, and the print queue stays empty. Noth


Ideas? Yes. I had this happen on an LJ 1000 while trying to print my tax return. I tried emptying the queue, removing power from the printer, etc, etc. What finally worked was to empty the queue (again), disconnect power from the printer, shut down the computer, plug in the printer again, restart the computer, queue up a print job again, and hit PRINT.
Hope this works for you

On the bottom right of the screen you should see a printer icon. Click on it and it will open the driver queue. Click on the job that is not printing and then delete or cancel the print job.

Check your windows firewall or your antivirus.
Disconnect that for a while and delete all pending documents (queue).

Send a new doc to print and see what happen.
Usually those program are blocking the communication between printer and computer.
If this is your case, set a rule on your antivirus program.

Have a great day!

Only prints on computer restart!


Have you tried a different port?
This will identify if it is a USB issue, possible USB 1 or 2.
It sounds like an issue with your port and not the printer, do you have access to advanced settings on your computer for USB?

Konica Minolta Magicolor 2400W -- Only Prints on Reboot!


I've had that problem before too, and found out that there were copies of the printer that had somehow installed themselves on my computer. All I needed to do was to choose to print with "konica minolta copy 1" instead of the one that I *thought* was installed and it worked. I then deleted the original printer and just stuck with the copy.
