You will have to reload your printer. Plug the printer to your computer and reboot. The Plu and Play should recognize it. Then the Ad Hardware Wizard will pop up. Load the CD that came with the printer and the Wizard will allow you to load and configure the printer driver. Once the drivers are loaded you can print a test page. If it is a USB printer then load the drivers first, then plug your printer in and reboot.

Try to reseat your cartridges. Unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset itself. If that doesn't help, try to clean your cartridges and check if print quality improves. If you're using Windows, go to Start -> Programs -> Lexmark X74-X75 -> Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center -> Maintenance -> Clean print nozzles to fix horizontal streaks.

Priter does't respond when i used it to print a document

Printer isn’t responding? Please check the following:
i. Is it powered on? If so good.
ii. Is the printer cable connected from printer to your computer? If so good.
iii. Check to see if printer is properly installed. Go to start/control panel/printers and faxes. When the box pops up with the list of installed printers check to see if your printer is listed. If not listed it means your printer is not installed. This also invariably implies that your printer cable (from printer to computer) is bad. Change it and your printer should install and you should be able to print then.

Doesn't scan. Only print and copy. Say's no USB

Usually the scanner and printer have separate drivers, even though both are included in one machine.

Check HP's website to see if there's a separate driver for the scanner or a program which installs both drivers from the same setup program. You might have to check device manager to see if a scanner is listed and if the driver is properly installed.

In XP and VISTA, go to control panel/device manager and see if there are any yellow caution signs by the 'imaging device' icon. If there is no 'imaging device' icon, either the driver is not installed or not installed properly.

One additional factor... HP usually requires that the driver be installed before the hardware is connected. After drivers are installed, New Hardware Wizard should find your HP devices and install them properly. If not, you might want to unistall them altogether and reinstall.

Hope this helps.

Prints purple instead of black

Seems like you have a similar problem to the 'orange' print, although if the print starts out black and turns purple, this may be down to the printer not working properly, rather than the software or drivers. If so, it's worth checking with the shop you bought from whether the Canon warranty is still valid.

The following might help if it's a driver \ software problem:
Download the latest drivers and software from the Canon website.

Before you install them (before you double-click the stuff you've downloaded), un-install all of your printer software then shut down your computer, even if the un-install program doesn't tell you to.

Switch off your printer, then unplug the usb cable from the printer (not the pc).

When the computer restarts, install the new software and drivers exactly the same way as in the original instructions that came with the printer.

Only turn the printer on and plug the usb cable in when the instructions tell you to.

If this doesn't work, the printer may be faulty. If you contact the dealer you bought it from, they may have a warranty running with Canon that lasts more than the guarantee period. It's worth a try, though you may have to pay for a courier to pick up and bring back your printer.

Even though printer cartridge was recently refilled, documents are not being printed properly.

I suspected a possible cartridge filter damage, so the cartridge was replaced. I am pleased to report that documents are being printed without a hitch.
