Question about Canon PIXMA MP760 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Printer not working

I have a problem when I try and print anything from my computer. The printer appears to be on and functioning normally but as soon as I press print on my laptop the computer crashes and reboots and nothing prints. This happens every time! I have tried reinstalling the printer onto my computer using the CD that came with it but this doesn't seem to have helped the situation. Any suggestions?

Re: Printer not working

Http:// Download the newest drivers from here(one of the should work). Uninstall the printer and any software that still may be on the computer. Shutdown the computer and printer. Reboot the computer(with out printer hooked up) and start the new software install. It will tell you when to hook the printerup. Disable any virus protection or spyware programs before you start the install. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

Lexmark X4550 Scanner not working

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).

If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

Deoo All in One 948 appears to reset continuously

if the printer has the same exact status on another computer, you may need to remove the cartridges and the power cycle the printer, then put the cartridges back in.

if this does NOT happen when the printer is being used on another computer then you may need to uninstall and reinstall the printer from your computer.

hope this helps out.

Recently had to reload everything on a new hard drive and reinstalled the Z82 drivers and updated firmware. Printer acts like it is printing but does not print anything. Any suggestions?

do you get anything from the self test? Press Setup until MAINTENANCE appears in the display. Press ?ž?or ?¿until PRINT SELF TEST appears in the second row of the display. Press Enter/Select. The message PRINTING appears in
if that works then it is definitely on the computer if not then you know it is a printer issue. When you plug in the USB cable did the computer react as if something plugged in? Try re-installing the drivers. Make sure the port selected is USB

Printer problem

Sounds like a hardware problem. Try connecting the printer to a different computer (plug and play) and then install the software. Try a different cable.
Silly question but is power getting to the printer?

Error 30

I have the MFC 465CN - I was receiving two error codes:
Unable To Clean - Error 30
Unable to initialize

To fix, I first cleared the memory by unplugging the printer, then holding down the red stop/exit button, keep it held, power up the printer, and dont let up the button until it finishes the start up.

I then pressed the "ink" button and performed a cleaning, alignment, and quality check. After this, everything worked fine.

DO NOT try to print anything from your computer or have any pending print jobs while doing this - it appears that pending print jobs, or anything in the printers memory was interferring with the initilization and cleaning cycle it performs.

Hope this helps...

RX620 wont communicate via powered USB hub.

on a windows system, go to printers and faxes, delete all icons there. unplug the printer, reboot your computer, then as soon as your computer is up, connect the usb cable... now wait.....
after about 5 mins, check printers and faxes if it has an icon for your printer, if it does then print a test page, if it does not show an icon, try another cable, try another usb port or try it on another computer entirely...
