SOURCE: Canon PIXMA MP190 'not responding'

There are possible causes of this not responding status message you get. you will try out these option i have listed here and see which one resolves the problem. after each one, try to print from a file and from the web.
1. Configure driver to correct printer port
On the 'Ports' tab of 'Printer Properties' window, select the correct port for the printer driver.
From the Windows desktop, open the printer's properties window.
Click the Ports tab.
Below 'Print to the following port(s)' section, select the port to which your printer is connected.
Click 'Apply' to accept the changes.

Click General tab and then click 'Print Test Page' to confirm the changes corrected the issue.
2. Checking USB Connections
You should disconnect and reconnect the USB cable at both ends to ensure there is a secure connection on the device side as well as the computer side. It may also be necessary to try a different USB port on the computer. Additionally, you may need to disconnect other USB devices, temporarily, in order to determine if a conflict exists.
Disconnect one end of the cable and then reseat it ensuring the cable is firmly seated into the USB port. If the USB cable is plugged into a hub instead of directly into the computer, try connecting the USB cable directly into the computer.
Repeat step one to reseat the cable on the other end.
3. If there is still no communication, then it may be necessary to try a different USB cable or a different port on the computer.
when you are through, restart the system.
4. Uninstall and Reinstall the Driver
If the MP Navigator or the MP drivers are no longer required, or if they are not installed correctly, uninstall them.
Caution: Uninstalling means deleting software, such as MP drivers, from the computer. Once the software has been deleted the unit cannot be used through the computer until the software has been reinstalled.
Note: Login as a user with Administrator privileges to uninstall . Turn off any programs running in the background, such as antivirus programs and firewalls before begining.

SOURCE: Wireless printing does not work

For an effective wireless connection, the printer should be connected to one of the LAN ports of a configured wireless router. This way, every pc(mostly laptops with wireless capability) can print to the printer. You will need a wireless adapter for desktop pcs to access any resource made available wirelessly ok. Good luck

My Pixma MG5250 has run out of Cyan ink, how can i continue to print with just black ink?


With the canon single ink inkjet printers it is not possible to use only the black cartridges for printing. You will have to put a new cyan cartridge into the printer to continue printing.

My Pixma MG5250 has run out of cyan ink, how can i continue to print with just black? I use a Mac.


As long as the cartridge that is telling the printer I'm empty is in the printer, you can't go on. I did reset all my colour cartridges in my printer, because I only print in black. Still now and then a cartridge is telling it is empty. I think the printer still wants to mix colours in the black. Lucky me, I can reset my cartridges all the time.
I'm not sure you can do the same on the canon. Try to get a chip resetter that is sold on all refill stores.

Try holding down the Stop/Reset button on the top of the printer for approximately 10-20 sec. It should start to print. If not try a different cartridge.

CANON PIXMA MX310: printer not responding.


If you go to Start, Printers and Faxes, if it says "Offline", right-click the printer and choose "Use Printer Online." If it says Ready, you should be good to go.

If however there is a problem yet, double-click the Printer there and see if any jobs are in the print queue. You can remove them all buy Right-Clicking and choosing "Cancel All Documents" then try printing a test page. Right-click the printer, go to properties and click "Print Test Page."

If you still have problems, follow up on your question.
