Question about Canon Pixma MX410 All-In-One Printer
Hi, I am trying to uninstall my MX410 series printer and it all uninstalled except for the MP Drivers. When I hit uninstall, it comes up with a message "Disconnect the printer cable from the computer and then try again". The printer was wireless and is long gone now. It is certainly not plugged in so I don't know what's going on. I wouldn't worry about fixing this, but because of it my new printer won't install. If it helps, when I go into device manager the entire page is blank. I searched for a solution to this and tried all the suggested fixes with no luck. Thanks for any help!
Have you tried uninstalling the drivers in safe mode ?
You should print these instructions before continuing.
They will not be available after you shut your computer down in step 2.
Click Start and then click Shut Down.
In the drop-down list of the Shut Down Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.
As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8.
On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press F8 when the boot menu appears.
Use the arrow keys to highlight the appropriate safe mode option, and then press ENTER.
If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.
If Windows launches before you can choose a safe mode, restart your computer and try again.
In safe mode, you have access to only basic files and drivers (mouse, monitor, keyboard, mass storage, base video, default system services, and no network connections). You can choose the Safe Mode with Networking option, which loads all of the above files and drivers and the essential services and drivers to start networking, or you can choose the Safe Mode with Command Prompt option, which is exactly the same as safe mode except that a command prompt is started instead of the graphical user interface. You can also choose Last Known Good Configuration, which starts your computer using the registry information that was saved at the last shutdown.
Safe mode helps you diagnose problems.
If a symptom does not reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and minimum device drivers as possible causes.
If a newly added device or a changed driver is causing problems, you can use safe mode to remove the device or reverse the change.
There are circumstances where safe mode will not be able to help you, such as when Windows system files that are required to start the system are corrupted or damaged.
In this case, the Recovery Console may help you.
NUM LOCK must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function.

Just to add to CoachTim's excellent solution, i find that removing the printer from the usb port as well as turning it off helps. But make sure you uninstall printer completely from add/remove programmes and check in the folder after that there is no canon printer listed. download this UK driver http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0024838.asp?model= Restart your pc before re installing and re connecting printer.

You need to carefully clean the encoder strip. It's the clear strip behind the carriage that runs all the way from right to left. A damp Q-tip should remove any grease or fingerprints.
