Hi,
Try getting it from the Australian Canon page, the URL is shorter:

http://support-au.canon.com.au/contents/AU/EN/0100127601.html

Hope this helps

Enter your OS to get the proper drivers. Your OS can't read addresses/paths with more than 128 letters/numbers in it. Please rate this solution accordingly if it helps you because that helps me, too.

Ok no problem you can change the name and still download it. When you find the driver and are ready to download click "Save As" as opposed to Save or Open. A window will open and the second to last line on the bottom you can type in the name you want to save it as. MyDriverForSound for example. Then once the file is finished downloading just click "Open". That will open the file and install the driver, the computer does not care what the name is, the last three letters which are automatically assigned tells your computer it is a driver. If you have any questions let me know.

Don't forget to rate this 4 stars before logging out.

Error message 6A00


Hi

The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Software for canon pixma mp780


Not knowing where you are from, I can only give the following help.

Do a Google search using the following text:

pixma mp780 +driver

Note the "+driver" (no space between the "+" and the word "driver").

This will bring up a lot of sites where you can dowload the drivers.
