Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer

2 Answers

Just stopped printing

My iP4200's been working fine for 7 months. One day it just stopped printing-says the mac (g4 OSX10.4) is not communicating. Spent hours with canon--they think it's the computer (new drivers don't work, printing from root account doesn't work, etc.) It WILL print a test print when commanded to via the printer utilities, which baffles me. Any ideas?

Do you have another computer to connect to for a test to eliminate the computer issue. If that does not work. The printer interface is probably bad. You should still have warranty. Make Canon repair it. Also try the simplest thing. Anew cable.

G4 imac won't power up every time


Bummer, sounds like power supply. I used this guy when the logic board went out on my powerbook and it's been purring away for 18 months since. I spent days searching for cheapest parts and most reliable service and turns out he was both! Apple wanted $1200 for new board (no warranty) and he repaired with warranty for $350. You can check out the testimonials page if you're leery (like I was).

Kodak 5100 will not print consistently


I am currently having the same problem with a 17" iMac Intel Core Duo.  The printer worked fine for a few months, now it will only print in black and white and sometimes in color that is extremely faded.  I have tried every troubleshooting tip in the book and still no luck.

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.

Printer won't communicate with computer


go to system preferences select print and fax locate the printer in the list to the left and select the minus symbol underneath then restart the system. after rebooting go back to system preferences select print and fax connect the printer and click the add symbol under the list select the ip tab which looks like a globe if the printer doesn't pop up in the ip list you must use the default ip address which should be 192.168.1.1 but if that is not it you will have to contact support again to find out the correct address once you find it in the add print fax you just select add then select it in the default printer drop down menu at the bottom of the screen and you should be ready to print

Pixma IP 4200 does not print


On the first question it sounds like the Mac might have a problem with its port. Check cable, try another device in that port. You really should ask around on a Mac site as this is not a printer problem since it works on another machine.

For the second person, you're using the machine plugged into a network? Is it plugged into router? If you're having an IP address conflict, you can get the problems you're describing. Make sure that you use a static IP address that is much higher address than any dynamic machines might be assigned.

For example, if you're using dynamic IPs, for example in the area of 192.168.1.100 and up. If you have four OTHER devices on your network, they may be 192.168.1.101, .102, .103, .104. So, the highest IP address they should be assigned is 192.168.1.104. Too allow for guest IP addresses, you should set your printer to be 192.168.1.109 so none of your devices or a guests device will ever be able to have a conflicting address.
