check to see if you see your printer in there anywhere
open word or note pad type a few words and then click print
see if that picks up printer

if nothing go to my computer c drive and then program files see if you see your printer anywhere in there

if not you may need to reinstall before reinstalling
you'll have to right click my computer properties then hardware then device find your printer driver in there there uninstall
some printers need to be plugged in to pc and turned on before you install
HOPE THIS HELPS

My 6530 works OK as a copier but not as a printer or as a scanner. I suspect that the USB interface is defective.


It is could be a software related problem. Software called drivers are needed to run the printer. The drivers for your printer can be found on the CD disk that came with your printer. They can also be downloaded from the manufactures website, click their downloads/support button and select your model of printer. Download and install the drivers for your specific model of printer and for your specific version of Windows.

Take care!

Cant install canon ip90 printer. Downloaded driver not found by wizard.


Do this:

In XP default view, from the Start menu, select Printers and Faxes, and then double-click Add Printer.

  1. Make sure that the USB cable is unplugged from your computer and your printer. USB devices work differently from older devices and usually need to have the drivers installed before you connect the device.

If you don't have an installation program, plug the USB cable into your computer and your printer. This should trigger the Add New Hardware Wizard.
Uncheck all options except

Specify a Location.
Click Browse.
Browse the folder where you have your downloaded driver
OK.

If the driver not match you have a wrong driver.
In that case go back to Canon and get the right one and do the same procedure again.



Have a great day
Pablo :-)

MP210 driver does not work with ASUS LAPTOP WITH Vista


On Canon's support page for this printer PM210 Support there are 3 different driver files available. One is for XP and Vista 32-bit systems, one for XP 64-bit systems, and one for Vista 64-bit systems. If you know what system you have select it in the drop down menu and download and install it.

Scanner problems


You may have a printer driver error.

Remove the USB cable from the PC.

Uninstall the printer from Add/Remove Programs from control panel.

Get your printer driver with the CD that came with it and install the printer again. Or download latest printer driver from canon - type "canon mp510 driver" into google.

Install new driver.

If its still not working, it may just be a connection problem between your computer and the scanner - check the USB cable is ok.

If its not that (more than likely not) then the workaround is to go into MPNavigator on your PC (start programs, printers, Canon MP510, Canon Utlilities, MP Navigator 3.0 (or whatever version ures is ))

then you need to set a short cut to that... it allows you to scan directly from that program.


Hope it works

Canon mp160


First step I would try is; unplug printer usb cable, then power down printer, reconnect usb cable to printer, power printer back on. If all this fails then lets try one other possible fix. Go to start select RUN & type services.msc, ok now you should have a services window that popped up. On the right hand side locate "Printer Spool" and right click on it, then select "Restart". this should refresh your printer spool. Hope this was helpful.

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.
