Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer
One day my IP4200 just stopped printing. Two long phone calls to Canon did nothing. I've downloaded the latest drivers after deleting the old ones and still nothing. We logged in on a root account (mac G4 OSX 10.4) and still no printing. It will perform a test print but just blinks green when asked to print a regular job.I finally tested this printer on another computer (mac G3 OSX 10.3) and it works. So I guess I know it's not the printer. It seems to work fine on the G3. Very frustrating--is there something else beside drivers? Is printer software something different? Please help! I posted this problem originally on 8/2/07. Thanks!
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.
