    I actually solved the problem myself when I discovered that I had reconnected the printer wrong after taking my computer in to the Apple Store for a lesson. Thanks.

If you look carefully at the printer you'll note that there is no button for "Print" and the reason for this is that all the other functions are for using the printer as if it wasn't connected, nor needed a computer.

All your printing functions that DO use a computer require you to interact with the printer via the computer.

In short, to use the printer from the computer you'll need to make sure you've installed the correct drivers (see your installation CD or the Canon website) and then plug the printer in using a USB cable connection to your computer. If the computer recognises the printer you'll then be able to print.

In a nutshell if your printer is connected and drivers installed properly it doesn't matter what your printer has selected on the printers own control panel, you just print :)

Hope that helps.

How do I speed up the rate on my xp-412 in copy mode?


The printer "program" in your computer should let you go to "Properties" or some other title and see if the "PRINT MODE" is set to the rate you want, prior to printing the document.

What button to press to copy a document ?


If you are putting a document into the printer and want to make a copy of it, press the key that says "copy" on the printers keyboard. Then choose the number of copies you want to make and press the "ok" or "enter" key on the keyboard of the printer.

If the document you wish to make a copy of is located in your computer and you dont have a copy of it to place in your printer - then you need to print the document. Not copy the document. Copy means make another one. You can't copy something that you dont have in your hands. Understand? To print a document that you dont have in your hands, find it on your computer. When you find the document you want to print on the computer, click on "file" in the upper left side corner of your computer screen and slide down to "print" and click on it. Then click on "ok" on the next screen to start printing your document.

If there is no "file" command in the upper left corner of your computer screen when you have the document that you want to print open on the computer - try right clicking with the button on the right side of your mouse in the center of the document and find the "print" command on the drop down list and click on it. Then click on "ok" on the next screen and this will start the printing of your document.

Hope this helps? Good luck!

How do you know whether to scan or copy your document?


Scan it if you want to "embed" part of the document into a Word document or a PowerPoint presentation.

Copy it if you want to give an identical copy to somebody.

How to print a regular document from Microsoft Word, Excel.


Instead of pressing the start button to print, you need to press the small ON/OFF button. The start button works to copy/scan. But to print, you will need to turn the printer on first. Once the printer is on, the computer should recognize it fine and allow you to print from your applications.

Canon jx200 fax machine


The fax automatically turns off Auto Print and stores faxes in memory when either ink or paper is low. The memory will store up to 30 transmissions or 60 pages maximum, so it is important not to leave this too long if you have heavy transmission volume.

Faxes can be retrieved as follows.

If you want to choose only certain faxes to print:
1. Print a list of documents in memory for reference:
Press Menu. Use arrows (up & down) to select Memory Reference, then press Start/Copy. Use the arrows to select Doc Memory List, and again press Start/Copy.
2. Print a document from memory (using the list printed in #1):
Press Menu. Use arrows (up & down) to select Memory Reference, then press Start/Copy. Use the arrows to select Print Document, and again press Start/Copy. The LCD will show the first number in memory (e.g., TX/RX NO. 0001).

Use the arrows to choose the document you want to print, and press Start/Copy. The LCD will then toggle between "1st page only?" and "Yes=(*) No=(#)". Press * to print only the first page, or # to print all pages.
3. Delete selected document(s) from memory:
Press Menu. Use arrows (up & down) to select Memory Reference, then press Start/Copy. Use the arrows to select Delete Doc, and again press Start/Copy. The LCD will show the first number in memory (e.g., TX/RX NO. 0001).

Use the arrows to choose the document you want to delete, and press Start/Copy. [Note - if the arrows do not result in another number displaying, there is only one document in memory.] The LCD will show "Yes=(*) No=(#)". Press * to delete the document. Continue to select documents until each document you want to delete has been handled.

If you want to print all unprinted documents in memory:
1. If you want to have a list of documents in memory for reference before performing this procedure, to be sure you have them all, follow step 1 from the above procedure for printing selected documents.]
2. Press Menu. Use arrows (up & down) to select Memory Reference, then press Start/Copy. Use the arrows to select Print All New RX, and again press Start/Copy.
3. Delete all printed docs from memory:
Immediately after printing all documents, you will have the choice of deleting all documents. The LCD will display "Yes=(*) No=(#)". Press * delete all, or # to retain in memory.

To delete all documents at a later time:
Press Menu. Use arrows (up & down) to select Memory Reference, then press Start/Copy. Use the arrows to select Delete Printed RX, and again press Start/Copy. The LCD will display "Yes=(*) No=(#)". Press * delete all, or # to retain in memory. To finish then, press Stop.
