Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000R InkJet Printer

Can't print over wireless

I think the wireless card or whatever it is in the printer is broken; can't communicate over wireless (USB is fine); when I tried to (re) set up and detect the printer using the Mac address, it couldn't find it. Am I hosed, or is there a way to diagnose further? Thanks

Re: can't print over wireless

Not sure if you tried this but you need to use USB and the BJ network tool to first configure the wireless. Using the working USB connection configure the printer to use wireless but not ethernet, set the SSID and encryption. Then update that to the printer and try pinging it.

I have a hp officejet 6500 e709 all in one printer, i have been able to communicate without any problems wirelessly until recently. i had an error saying ink was low and had trouble printing, i assumed it...

This is one of the common connectivity issues marring the benefits of having a wireless printer. In this situation your printer will not print when connected wirelessly but would need you to set it up with your system using a USB cable. Try resetting the IP of your system to what is mentioned in the printer and in case there is a router connecting your printer and system then use the IP address of router and put it in your system. This should help you fix this printer issue.

Wireless printer communication unavailable via USB

Hi. Hope you got it working fine now on your Windows 7. If not, go to Start Menu > Devices and Printers > right click on the Lexmark print object > Troubleshoot. Make sure the printer is on and is still connected to the computer via the usb cable.

My lexmark 4850 wireless will not communicate with computer

Disable any Firewall/Antivirus you have running and try a new print.
If still an issue, go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - Right-click on Notepad and choose 'Run as Administrator' (if on Vista/W7). Try to print this notepad document. If it prints, it's Windows User Account Control that is blocking the print. This can be disabled in the Control Panel - User Accounts. 

If it's wireless, you can try re-installing the printer using USB connection in order to eliminate the wireless network as the issue. 
If it's still an issue, you can check your computer manufacturers website for updates for your chipset (USB drivers).

HP P2015dn wirless connection stopped working

There is not wireless netwrok card is HP LJ P2015dn, However as i can understand you r using External Wireless Router or Wireless network or jet-direct card if u r able to work fine on USB than printer printing mechanism is working fine.
If u connect the printer via wired network connection and it keeps on loosing IP address than it may be problem with onboard network card of the printer.
If printer keeps on loosing IP Address than try upgrading the firmware of the printer.
To check the firmware and IP Address of the printer print a configuration page by pressing and holding down green button for 6 to 7 seconds
