My Canon 3240 printer will not print. It may not be in the right mode, but I don't know how to change it. I try to print from screen, it looks like it's sending data but nothing prints. Any ideas? tmast

Go to your Control panel and select printers. You should see your printer in the list, if not add new printer. If you do see your printer, Right Click on it and select Properties. At the bottom of that page click on print Test Page. If it does not print, you will be given troubleshooting tips.

Does it do anything at all? Can your computer actually see the printer? If it can, try the Canon printer utilities to change the mode on the printer. Report back if that doesn't help.

My Canon iX4000 has changed its colours during printing, with Red noticeably being printed as green. I have a Canon 5PGBK & Calidad 922 Cyan, Magenta & Yellow Cartridges. Do you think the...


Welcome to Fixya
If this happened recently then try to reset the printer to factory state. Please see procedure below:
1.Connect the Canon PIXMA iX4000 printer to the power cord. ( note : If the automatic power-on function is enabled in the printer, the printer enters the service mode for the first time, but it will never enter the service mode if the printer is turned off by the Power button. This is because the printer remains to be turned on internally if the power is turned off by the Power button. To prevent this, disconnection of the power cord is required before starting the printer in the service mode ) .

2.With the Canon PIXMA iX4000 printer powered off, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the Power button. (note : Don't release the buttons. The Power LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

3.While holding the Power button, release Resume/Cancel button. (Don't release the Power button.)

4.While holding the Power button, press Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons.

5.When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button 4 times to reset waste ink counter in the Canon Pixma iX4000. (note : If the Power LED does not light in green the printer does not enter the service mode, disconnect the power cord and plug it again. Then start from step 1 to start the printer in the service mode again).

6.At the end of the service mode, press the Power button. The paper lifting plate of the sheet feed unit will be raised.
Note :

Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.
Other specified number of time(s) according to the function listed in the table below.

Time(s) LED indication Function Remarks
0 times Green (Power) Power off
1 time Orange (Alarm) Service test print
2 times Green (Power) EEPROM information print
3 times Orange (Alarm) EEPROM initialization
4 times Green (Power) Waste ink counter resetting
5 times Orange (Alarm) Destination settings
6 times Green (Power) Print head deep cleaning (Cleaning of both black and color)

Thank you for using Fixya!

Since I don't know what operating system you have on your computer, here are the steps for all Windows operating system from Canon for your printer. If these don't work, let me know but usually once you change the settings for black and white only, it works fine.

Go to the printer itself and click the wrench icon until you see maintenance then use the arrows under the screen to go to print test page. If test page is blank, use maintenance again to do a deep clean.

Canon LBP2900 printer but i don`t know how to print back to back


I take it you are using windows,
Open control panel, open printers and faxes, right click on your printer icon.

Left click on properties, left click on printer preferences, left click on page setup, down near the bottom there is a box called duplex printing, tick that and you are on the way.....

Canon pixma ip 3000 will not exit the error mode. every time i try to rest it it retunrs, any ideas?


Try turning it off at the mains, it should re set the printer.

Also you can if you have any print jobs in the printer que delete them, you can find that by going to your system tray, normaly if there are items waiting to be printed your printer should be residing there, right click it & choose your printer, from within the screens that are open you should see print jobs in que, select them & delete them
