Normal 0 This doesn’t help fix all printers because each situation is different and in most cases we don’t have enough information to determine the fix. So hope this will provide some help.

Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Can you tell me which cartiges I need for my mx700 cannon printer,fax,copier

The Canon mx700 printer uses four (4) cartridges: PGI-5 (Black), CLI-8 (Cyan), CLI-8 (Magenta), and CLI-8 (Yellow). The colors all have the same cartridge number so you will have to specify which one you want.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

Cartrige error 1203, what do I do to solve this problem?

It seems your courtige do'nt support in your printer. To continu your printing you need to replace ink cartige. In older cartige you may try the following tecnique:
1. Open your unsupported in cartige.
2. Take a pice of tissue paper and wip smothly both the connector plate and cartige head.
thank you.

Canon MP510 wont recognise cartridges

Using replacement cartridges that come without a chip seems to be the problem I had with the Canon Pixma 510 printer they are cheaper
but if they do not show the ink levels then its inconvienent so I have but Canon products with a chip and they work perfectly.

Cyan ink tank not recognised

I phoned Canon Tech Support Center this morning. They had me replace the ink tank giving me the U150 error code and are sending me a replacement tank. HOPEFULLY this will solve the problem.
