First you need to check that the printer has the same problem with a new cartridge, otherwise may be a cartridge problem. After this try doing a nozzle cleanup. You will find the option on printer properties in control panel, or opening canon software from start menu. If after this you still have the problem then you should open the printer and clean the waste ink well and printer head.

What you have is a dried up color cartridge. You can try to use the <clean print heads> in the diagnostic tools section of you priner software. (usually, just try to print something & the window will appear) Sometimes you have to clean heads, then print test page like 2 or 3 times before it clears up. If that doesn't correct it, don't worry. Have your color cartridge filled (staples, office depot, & other stores do it cheap) - or - replace it with a new cartridge. You may have to run the clean print heads program after installing a new cartridge, but this will definitely fix your problem.

If you don't have the original installation disc, you can go to the manufacturer's website and download the software you'll need. This page has the driver and software.
If you plan on using it wirelessly, you might need to be plugged directly into your computer when doing this initial installation. The cable should have come with the printer and has a USB connection for your computer and the other end will go in the back of the printer. Follow the steps that should be there after you download the file. It's not an "app" you need, it's the "software". Good luck! Canon Support Drivers PIXMA MX420

My Canon MX420 prints blank pages?

You may be printing a PDF from within a web page and using the browser's print button instead of the PDF reader's built in print button. Just a guess since I'm not a clairvoyant and have no idea what the situation is. Care to fill us in?

Won't print it always says document in queue

This sometimes happens if a print job freezes before, or during the print. I would suggest two things. Open up your print que, which you should be able to access from the bottom right hand side of your screen in your task bar. Right click, and open print que. If there is a print job in the que that says printing, try to right click on the job and cancel it. If this does not work and you have not done so already, restart your computer and your printer! Go back into the que if you have to and if the job is still there, right click and cancel job again. Then, retry printing a something different from your printer. This should solve your problem.

I have my Canon MX420 printer hooked up, my computer recognizes it's existence, and the printer prints fine by itself. However, every time I try to print from my computer via wi-fi, my computer says...

If your printer has the network cable plugged into it then your halfway there. Make sure that as well as having a hard line network cable plugged into your router, you need to connect the printer to the wifi signal as well. On your printer, push your settings button, scroll to your wireless lan setup, and connect to your router and if password protected, enter in the password and you should then be connected to you router, now try printing using your laptop or device through your wireless connection, and it should print. Please post back if you need further instructions or help!

Try to print something out ( like report or similar ) and if the print is fine that means that you have some dirt on scaner, clean scaner verry well with moisturized cloth and dry it after.
If the lines are also on print that means that you have to replace drum ( toner crg. ). To be sure that is the drum problem, remove it from the macine and on green long roller ( drum ) look for lines. If there are lines, change it.
Use genuine crg. - allways
