The fax you see is the one windows install by default with XP/Vista, nothing to do with your printer.
Are you sure the CD you are installing contains the drivers for your printer? If not, download this and install it: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=15402

Print document system responds document is printing system responds that document is printed but no document is printed. Used troubleshooting for alignment and that works with printer?


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print/scan again.

Unable to connect, get error message USB cable not connected but it is. Been working fine until today, about a month old


disconnect printer usb cable, then uninstall the printer from the computer by deleting the driver at the printer console, then connect the printer usb cable up and install using the driver downloaded fromt he kodak.com website. This should solve your problem.

Good luck.

Error: im32fax.dil


start > run > msconfig > ( on the top ) startup > remove fax servece
For a quick fix follow the above steps to turn off the fax service(unless you need the fax service running) The missing dll file may be from your printer/scanner (if lexmark I would say definatley)
Try reinstalling the printer software to repair(uninstall them first).

Computer cannot detect printer


Try this:

Go to the Control Panel, then open Printers and Faxes.

If your Canon is listed remove it by right clicking and deleting.

Check Add and Remove software to see if any part of Canon’s software is listed and delete it if it is.

Leaving the printer on and connected, restart your system.

This should force Windows to recognize the printer and install a compatible driver from its library.
If successful, choose some document to print to see if the printer is now responding.

If this is also successful, then try reinstalling Canon’s software to regain access to special features not part of the Win driver.

Reformatting your drive is often not necessary and can cause the kind of problem you are experiencing; Restore works pretty good in most cases unless you picked up a really tenacious virus and couldn’t remove it any other way.
