"The printer is performing another operation."

Prior to printing, scanning or copying, the printer must be setup
completely. If the operation panel displays an error, please take action
to clear the error. If the printer was just unpacked and displays the
following message, press the up, down, left or right arrow or use the
Easy-scroll wheel to select the preferred language and then press the
<OK> button.

It has been sometime since you first asked this question, but to answer it properly for future quieries to this problem, I thought I'd provide useful help, when I found none. After doing every possible thing you know, such as try all ports on your computer; unre-install software; disre-connect power supply; alter settings and etc to no avail, CALL CANON STRAIGHT AWAY AND GET IIT REPAIRED UNDER WARRENTY, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! In my case, it was a Firmware (software iinside the unit itself) issue, that needed to be updated. I spent months trying to get it working, shedding so many tears and wasted time, that if I called Canon immediately, I would have 4 extra months of warrenty, rather than trying to find a quick solution on the Internet. I am not saying this is your exact problem too, but if you no as much about computers like I do from using them everyday, you will save your time and a lot of energy.

    I had the same problem but then tried copying and then scanning a document first. After the two other functions succeeded, I tried printing again. This time it worked! Apparently the process cleared the previous message that said the printer was performing another operation.
