Re: Canon MX 310 - printer not detected message

Hi, I will assume that you are installing the Canon MX 310 to a Windows machine. Before going thru the install procedure, please check that you have USB enabled by right click on My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Manager, and at the very bottom USB Controllers should be there with no red or yellow markings. If they are not there, please restart your machine, press del or whatever it is to enter CMOS/BIOS setup and verify that the USB ports are enabled. In some instances, it may take some time before the PC recognizes the USB device such as your printer. You really have to give it time or one trick is to Cancel the printer port detection and just go ahead with the installation. When all is installed and finished, you can change the properties of the printer to USB port from the Parallel/LPT1 port. Another is to plug the printer straight in to the USB port (or try all the other USB ports) without installing it first. Allow/let Windows to autodetect and auto install. Put in the CD only when Windows does not know where the drivers/installers are located. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Can't seem to find how to put ink into my canon mx 310 printer

I'm assuming when you said "fine catridge" you meant FINE cartridge. FINE is an acronym for the Canon Ink Cartridges. Anyhow, plug your printer into the electrical outlet and turn the power on. Wait about 1-3 minutes and open it up and the Ink Cartridge holders should move to the left for you to properly insert your Ink Cartridges.

I am trying to hook up a Canon MX 310 to my MAC and tried to download the driver and end up with an error message. Failed many times and just can't figure it out...can you help?

Depending on which Mac OS you are running you shouldn't need to download a driver - most Canon printers are included in the Apple software from X10.5

MX-310 has fax's in memeory but keeps printing the first page of the first fax only. Screen says check paper size. When i push ok it only will print the first page over and over. How do I change it?

If your Canon MX-310 has been set up to print faxes as they are received, then what is actually in memory is a "received fax report". If you select a particular fax in this report, it will print the first page of the fax to remind you of the content.

Your Canon MX-310 will store fax documents in memory if:
  • Ink is low or has run out
  • The paper size and type is not set correctly
  • Paper has run out
  • The Output Tray is closed
