SOURCE: ip4200 - printing issues!

Hi, Perhaps you can try: remove the USB connection of the printer; uninstall and remove all drivers of the Canon IP4200; reboot your PC; plug in your usb to the PC from the printer; power on your printer; let windows auto detect "New Hardware found"; let windows auto install drivers; test print. If after plugging in your usb and powering your printer Windows did not auto detect "New Hardware found", it's possible that your printer's usb cable is defective. If Windows auto detected the Canon IP4200 and auto installed all the necessary drivers but failed in the test print, repeat above steps but instead of auto install, use the original CD driver and not the new drivers (Let me choose which drivers I want". RESET - User manual is available from the Canon site. There are 2 versions, 1 is a Quick Start Guide in pdf and the other is a User's Manual (On-Screen). Both does not say anything about reset, however you may want to google "fix your own printer" and variations of resetting all sorts of printers are available. Some works, others are ... well you can always give it a try. Or in the On-Screen Manual,you can also try the Troubleshooting/Printing Does Not Start. Another thing that you can try is installing the printer in another PC using the old CD drivers and see if it works. If it does, then it is a driver issue with the new PC. If it does not, you're back to reset . Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck and kind regards.

When you plug your printer into the computer, what does the computer say?

Count how many flashes you are getting. Look in your owners manual to see what it says for that number of flashes.

SOURCE: Pixma IP 4200 does not print

On the first question it sounds like the Mac might have a problem with its port. Check cable, try another device in that port. You really should ask around on a Mac site as this is not a printer problem since it works on another machine.

For the second person, you're using the machine plugged into a network? Is it plugged into router? If you're having an IP address conflict, you can get the problems you're describing. Make sure that you use a static IP address that is much higher address than any dynamic machines might be assigned.

For example, if you're using dynamic IPs, for example in the area of 192.168.1.100 and up. If you have four OTHER devices on your network, they may be 192.168.1.101, .102, .103, .104. So, the highest IP address they should be assigned is 192.168.1.104. Too allow for guest IP addresses, you should set your printer to be 192.168.1.109 so none of your devices or a guests device will ever be able to have a conflicting address.

Printing


Likely your purge unit needs cleaning...

Make sure by printing out a test page from printer (not from computer).

If test page is good, you have a software issue. If test page is bad, you need to clean your head and/or purge unit.
