SOURCE: Wireless Connection

I have the same problem and I have exhausted all options that I can think of. Last night I reset the network settings for the printer and started over and at the end, after going through the whole wizard again, it spit out a new network page and looked like the problems were fixed. (was now on channel 11,used to be on 6, also said it was connected to the wireless network when before it said it was not). I got excited thinking it had finally connected, but when I went to print a test page I got the same communication problem error message. I just got off the phone with Lexmark Support and he told me it was most likely printing to the wrong port. When I go to my printers properties page, it is printing to USB001 (Lexmark virtual printer port), and he told me it needs to be on "Lexmark 1400 Series" port. I will try to create a new port tonight and hopefully I have "Lexmark 1400 Series" as an option to choose from.

Jeez this thing is exhausting. I consider myself to be fairly computer savvy and I have wasted 4 nights working on this thing to no avail. How do people who don't know their way around a computer handle wifi printing to the 1420??

SOURCE: USB port problems with hp printer

There are few things to remember using USB.

  • If your System is in hybernation mode, don't remove any attached USB device, because it will damage your USB driver. This is one of the known problem from microsoft.
  • If you have to remove any USB device use 'Safely Remove Hardware'.

To remove currepted USB drivers its not enough to remove your printer drivers.
  1. You should un-install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' from Device Manager.
  2. Then re-boot to clean registry.
  3. Install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' using XP Setup CD.
  4. Then check the Mass storage, PDA etc, it should recognized by XP.
  5. Then install printer driver (don't attach printer to system untill setup finish or setup says to connect).

I think it will fix.
Please let me know your feed-back.

Thanks
Iqbal

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

SOURCE: is a canon Pixma MP160 a wireless printer

Per the information found here, it is not a wireless printer.
If you purchase a wireless print server (similar to a wireless router), you can connect just about any USB printer to it (which would be practically the same as having a wireless printer).
Some wireless print servers that support USB have a maximum of 2 USB ports and 4 or 5 network ports.
The only problem is the additional effort it takes to configure everything to work properly.
Good Luck!

I cannot receive a fax. My mx410 says "Awaiting doc processing"


It sounds to me like you are having connectivity issues. Do you receive faxes over the phone line, wireless server or internet? Are there any other errors?

My MX410 won't print. I get a message that sys the printer is offline. I have reset the print and checked to ensure that is online but I can't get it to print.


Make sure you have the current driver installed.pixma maxifi works real well. Follow the steps on wireless connection or wired. Then search the printer. Make sure both device and printer are on the same network. In the set up you will be prompted to pick the network. Canon.com/ijsetup

My wireless AND usb connection does not work on my Pixma MX452 printer. I can't print from any of my devices. How do I fix it?


It sounds like your printer is to blame. Unplug the device for five minutes and plug it back in. That resets the printer defaults. Try plugging-in another device (ipod) to the USB computer inputs to see if it is functioning correctly. That is to determine which wi-fi device, printer or computer is malfunctioning. Change out the USB cord too. I'm confused by your comment "I can't print from any of my devices".....what other devices are you talking about? Try unplugging everything for five minutes.....computer and peripherals.

We had a power outage, now pixma Mx410 won't come on, any ideas?


Is pinter plugged into a power strip? Try plugging directly into wall. Make sure wall outlet is working correctly, try another item in plug in. Does printer have a power module or brick that is plugged into printer? That power module is there to protect your printer during a power surge, it may need to be reset. Is there a light on that brick or power module? If so, does it light up? If not, could be a bad power module. There is no such thing as "reset" button, so don't look there...It will have to be reset in a series of ways for an "external" module.
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, power strip, or surge protector.
  3. If the printer uses a power module with a detachable power cord, disconnect the cord from the power module.
  4. Wait 15 seconds.
  5. If the printer uses a power module with a detachable power cord, reconnect the power cord to the power module.
  6. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  7. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet. Do not use a power strip or surge protector.
  8. Check to see if the power module or the power cord has an indicator light and if it is on
For an internal module:
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, power strip, or surge protector.
  3. Wait 15 seconds.
  4. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  5. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet. Do not use a power strip or surge protector.
  6. Check to see if the power module has an indicator light.
Not sure if this will help you..but worth a try.....

I just set up my new mx410 printer and every time I try to print it says, 'printer is performing another operation' how to I get past this. It's set up with a usb cord not wireless at this...


Hi, Try this: Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer. Then, unplug the USB from the back of the printer. After a minute, plug the power cord back in. Let the printer boot up for a minute. Then plug the USB in again. Let the USB get connected. If you don't see any errors and you setup your printer, then that should have reset the "other operation".
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a canon MX410. It was working printing remoteless fine. Now it keeps saying printer offline.


I just found a thread in Apple support forum which has fixed this problem for us - we have been battling with it for months. It is probably to do with it thinking it is a USB print queue, instead of wireless. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2528609?start=0&tstart=0
