    the solution was simple...as it turned out, my old printer was still on the printer management page and its status was 'deleting'. I needed to open it, and cancel the maintenence job that was hung. Once the job canceled, the old printer removed itself. This removed the contention for the USB port and my new printer works perfect. thanks for your help. bob.

Can you advise which operating system you are using? Assuming 32bit windows: Unplug the printer from the USB and try deleting the printer from the printers folder. Then download the latest driver from the Canon web site. Once you have you have it, in the control panel go to SYSTEM and into HARDWARE tab and then DEVICE MANAGER. Look under UNIVESAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS and check that there are NO yellow symbols. If there are yellow symbols you need to remove the offending item from the list (making a note of it's description) and then reboot your machine. When it comes back up it should advise that new hardware has been found and go through the process of installing the drivers. You can now go the manufacturers web site and download the USB controller driver for your device. If the file is a zip extract it to a folder on your PC. When it asks if it can go online to find a suitable driver, let it do so and you can also specify a location for it look (where you extracted the download above) Once it finds the driver required and has finished installing it, reboot your system and then install the printer driver you just downloaded. Hopefully this will get you back on the go. If you have a windows 64 bit system I'm afraid you are on your own. 64 bit drivers that work are very hard to come by. Let us know if this is any use to you, if not we may more to offer.

Try if one of these solutions help you.
1. Shut down you printer, wait a few seconds, start it again and try to see if you document is printing.

Samsung SCX-4500W restore wireless printing on cryptic error


For those having trouble wirelessly printing to their Samsung SCX-4500W printer from a Windows computer, I have this "easy" 13-step process that usually fixes my most common printing problem:

The symptom:
You haven't used your printer in a couple of days and have just hit the print button in an application you wish to print a document from. Instead of your printed document gracefully emerging from your printer, a Samsung status window appears on your computer above the task tray, cryptically announcing "The current printer port is not supported for the current printer status". You scratch your head in complete confusion.

The solution:
  1. Go into the room where your printer is. Observe that it has dropped its wifi connection and not reconnected automatically - the blue light indicating wifi is no longer illuminated.
  2. Turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, and turn it back on.
  3. Rebooting always causes a blank page to be ejected - how annoying! Open up the tray and reinsert the blank sheet.
  4. Wait for the blue wifi light to come on.
  5. Return to your computer and open the printer job queue window. Locate your document in this window with "Error" status next to it: right-click on it and select restart so its status changes to "Printing".
  6. After a while, notice the status has changed to "Error - Printing" or "Error - Sent to printer". Since restarting the job was not successful, right-click and select cancel. Press the OK button in the confirmation dialog. You may have to do this a second time before the job clears.
  7. Return to the application you printed from and re-print the document.
  8. Double-click on the blue Samsung "S" icon in the task tray. A window titled Samsung SX-4500W Series will appear in the lower right. Observe the status first says "Please wait..." then show the same cryptic message "The current printer port is not supported for the printer status". Grrrr.
  9. Check if your computer really can access the printer by opening web browser and typing its ip address. For me, it is 192.168.1.70. Alternatively, click the "Printer Setting" button in the window of step 8. Observe that the printer reports it is alive and ready for action. This is good.
  10. Check if any other Samsung software is able to use the printer: Open SmarThru 4 software, select "Scan To", "Folder", then hit "Scan" button. Observe that scanning from the printer works absolutely fine. Close SmarThru. So the problem is just the crappy printer driver.
  11. Close any Samsung windows you have open. Navigate the start menu to Samsung SCX-4500W Series->Maintenance. The installer will run in maintenance mode and find your printer on the network (and show its ip address), as well as an option to use it on "Local Port". Select the printer on network and click Next. Select "Samsung SCX-4500W Series printer driver" to repair and hit Next. The driver will re-install. Click Finish when done.
  12. Return to your application you wish to print from and activate the printing of the document again.
  13. The Samsung status window will once again appear in the lower right proclaiming "The current printer port is not supported for the printer status". Ignore this stupid message and close the window. Go to the room with your printer and with any luck, you will find your printed document waiting for you!

Once you are well practiced at this, and can fully appreciate how useless Samsung's software developers are, you can just do steps 1,2,3,4, 5, 6,11,12, and 13.

Canon Pixma MP130 had message "waste ink absorber almost full" for about 2 weeks and wouldn't print. I tried again yesterday and it printed. Today it wouldn't print again with message...


Here is what the Caon site says:

Issue: ERROR LCD: CHECK PRINTER 5B00

Solution: Press ON/OFF switch to reset the multifunction device


Reset the device when it is not functioning properly.
If the device is not functioning properly or to clear memory, reset it.
  1. On the operator panel, press and hold the button for one second. (The display will go blank.)

    Note: It may be necessary to unplug the power cord if pressing the ON/OFF button does not shut off the printer.

  2. Wait approximately ten seconds and then press the button again.

  3. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request.
