Question about Canon PIXMA iP1800 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Only test pages print perfectly!!

I have refilled ink in my iP 1880 Printer, running on Mac OS 10.5. It works fine usually but then suddenly it stopped printing, I mean you can hear the motion of the cartridges but the ink does not come out. The interesting thing is when you print a test page it comes out perfectly!!
Please help me solve the problem if you can.

If when you print a test page it comes out perfectly, that means that the printer works, and the problem is communication between the printer and Mac.

Try the following:

Start testing a different USB cable and a different port.
Unplug Mac, and eventually remove the battery.
Unplug the printer power cable and USB.
Put the mac back toghether and restart it with printer usb not connected.
When mac is on, reinstall printer software driver, with Mac still not connected to printer, using printer disk or download.
Connect printer to Mac when asked by software.

If that still does not work, test the printer on a different computer, even if it is not common, the printer may have a faulty USB port.

Has a code 016-302 and will not work


This error is almost always caused by a corrupt print job or driver. If the machine was working fine it may be as simple as canceling the print job and restarting everything (computer and printer).
Before sending the job to print again, it would be worthwhile to print a test page. If you can, you know the issue is specific to whatever you're trying to print. If you cannot, you know it's a most likely a driver issue.

Other possibilities:
- a recent OS update/upgrade killed the driver. This happened to a fair number of Windows 8 users.

-You're attempting to print from MAC but don't have the printer/driver setup for postscript. Weird but true, even in 2015 PCs and MACS still use different protocols to print to laser printers. (Not an issue for ink jets)

If this is the issue, here are the directions to setup the printer and MAC to work on your network. Notice the printer (wireless or not) should be wired for config-

PRINTER SETUP:
(1) Connect printer to the ethernet port
(2) On the controler of the printer, select menu
(3) with the cursors (down) select Admin Menu, and press ok (the center key)
(4) the text "wired network" will appear. Press OK
(5) Move the coursor down to tcp/ip. Press ok
(6) "get IP address" will appear. Press ok
(7) select panel. Press ok
(8) press "menu" and repeat (1) to (5)
(9) "get IP address" will appear. Move the cursor down to "IP Address". Press OK
(10) with the coursor select write the IP address among the margins of your Router. The Gateway numbers shlould be the same as the ip number of your router. MAsK is always 255.255.255.0
(11) press menu and restart the printer

IN YOUR MAC
(1)Install the 3110cn modules version 2.1.3 Build 5 (usually in the CD, or in DELL site download area)
(2) Open Setup Print Utility and select "Add a printer"
(3) Select IP printer (any of the possibilities you are offered are ok), WRITE THE ADDRESS YOU WROTE IN YOUR PRINTER
(4)In printing using select Dell

You can move the printer to wireless, just keep the IP address the same.

Hope this helps!

My Canon MP610 all-in-one printer has suddenly ceased to print via the computer. The paper is drawn through as usual, but there is no trace of ink when printing gray scale, and only the faintest hint of...


If problem is same after running a self test from printer, then prob. you have clogged nozzles; remove cartridges and soak (surface) of head into hot water for 20 sec. and test over a tissue. Repeat untill ink is seen on tissue.

If no use, then make sure you have enough ink in the cartridges. Otherwise, refill or replace.

good luck and pls. don't forget to vote. Thanks

I am using refills and my printer won't


Your printer will always think that refills for this cartridge are "empty" because there is no way to reset the ink levels on this type of cartridge. However, if the cartridge is not working you should be able to get a replacement from the refiller you purchased from. There are a few scenarios as to why the cartridge would print in his test printer and not yours. If they printed test pages from a stand alone printer, this does not make sure the electronics are functioning on your cartridge. If they used a test printer (CT-16, shoptester, etc..) it may be that the TSR is out on your cartridge.

Printer stopped printing suddenly


Hi there , i had a similar problem with the Canon Pixma IP 5000 when hooking up a wireless network.It stopped printing & the only solution was to uninstall printer/software,reboot & install as if you were hooking up printer for the first time.Sometimes software can be a problem if not installed in the right order.I had to completely remove sound card software after installing with antivirus already running.Antivirus had to go on last for everything to work.Still fine after 3 years! Hope you get printer running on newer OS.
