    After selecting the new USB port, does that indicate it is a Virtual USB Port of just USB 002? As with Printers, they need all the available voltage and current from a USB port and USB 001 would have more believe it or not. It is not supposed to work this way in reality but it does, that there is more voltage at one port than another.

    If you are getting steady results now, than leave it that way, otherwise, move your USB cable up to the ports on the back closest to the Mouse and Keyboard and then the socket closest to the edge of the case. I know it sound weird, but this is in fact the ports that get the most current and voltage from the system. I've had to do this out in the field at customer's homes.

    Let me know what results you have from this please and we'll get to the bottom of it. In the long run I'll probably give you some instructions to delete things deep in the system and do a full uninstall of the Canon software and then reinstalling it all once again. Its a mess, I know, but very common unfortunately.

    You already have the one and only tool. The only other thing is a maintenance reset, but your issue appears to be in the system setup for your printer and its creating a virtual USB port as a driver.

    I found drivers for a Canon i250 but not a 255. I was going to suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the software. However, often after uninstalling it is advisable to run a registry cleaner.

    Let me know about the product number and we can take it from there.

    The thing that needs to be done is to remove the virtual USB002 port from in your system registry. This will either happen elegantly or not, that's what we need to discover.

    So, removing all the printer software, running a registry cleaner, and then reinstalling your printer it in the correct sequence will probably fix your problem.

    Please look on the back on your printer where there will be a label reflecting your model number as opposed to the name of your printer on the front. These can be different. So check that and include the serial number and we can get to the bottom of this and get you fixed.

    Regards,
    Worldvet

Canon mx320 printer error has occurred 5200


You need to reset the printer. Try the steps:

• Plug in the power cord of printer.
Press Resume button 2 seconds
then press the power button until the green light on (when pressing the power button,Resume button)
• Then release the resume button, but do not release the power button.
• While the power button is still pressed, press the Resume button 5 times. Led will light turns green orange with the last glow orange.
• Release both buttons simultaneously.
• Led will blink briefly and then will glow green.
• And the computer will detect new hardware, just ignore ...
• Press the power button again then the printer will flash and. Printer is ready for use.

Have problem with canon ip1800 refil black and color and everything sets and blinking orange 4 and green 1 time


acording to the canon led error codes, it means the absorber pad (for the waste ink, inside the printer) is full. you can try using this software tool http://www.ziddu.com/download/4287279/Software_Resetter_CanoniP1900.zip.html to reset the printer or do it manualy:
  1. Press and hold power button with your finger and then take in power cable
  2. Hold power button, then press resume button with your middle finger twice.
  3. Let in power button
  4. Printer doesnot blinking any more.
  5. At this step you had done Manual Reset Step and printer could be use again.
  6. But if manually your printer still error, you should use Reset Software permanently
any way, your printer absorber pad /for the waste ink/ must be cleaned.

The printer flashes orange light five times, and green once


Probably your waste ink counter. Should be cleaned or replaced before resetting but usually you can get away with resetting once.
1. Start with printer OFF
2. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
3. Release RESUME
4. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
5. let green light blink until printhead has finished moving.
6. Select functions below with RESUME, execute with POWER

0 presses - green light - Test Print (exit service for i960)
1 press - orange light - EEPROM info print
2 presses - green light - EEPROM initialise
3 presses - orange light - reset waste ink counter.

This also applies to the i550, i560, i950, i960

Normal 0 Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

When it blinks 4 times orange it means that your ink has run out. You should replace the ink cartridge.
