Check your cables are in the correct positions., Turn the printer off and reboot your computer. Check the computer and see if it " finds" the printer. On the PC, press "start" look for and click on "printers and or accessories" Your printer should be displayed there. Click on properties. If the PC cant find it, I would say the cable is damaged or disconnected or the software for your printer has been deleted or failed. You may have to reinstall the software again.
F9-88 is a printer board communication error, either printer board has failed or the memory chip is no longer working. try unplugging printer cable and rebooting machine, or unplugging machine for 10 seconds and powering up again to reset the code.
This is usually a communication issue between copier and finisher, check connection to copier. Reboot, if error is still displayed you may need to dig deep into copier removing cleaning and re-seating main-controller sub pcb's checking cables ribbon cables ect. however this job is not recommended for anyone other than qualified technicians.
Most likely it is a corrupt software installation.
You can try the easy things first:
1) Unplug the USB cable from the computer
3) Plug the USB cable back into the computer, see if the communication error happens again
If that doesn't work, time to reinstall the software:
1) Go to Control Panel > Add Remove Programs OR Programs (depending on which version of Windows you have)
2) Remove every piece of software related to your printer
3) Unplug the USB cable from your computer
5) Disable any Anti-Virus or Firewall software that you have running
6) Re-run the printer installation software
Please ensure the communication cable between the printer and the system is good, if not please have it replaced. The board may be bad and needs replacement. Have the cable replaced, shut down the printer and reboot it
This error code is a communication error between the Reader Unit and the Copier (Printer Unit). Shut down and un-plug the Copier. Unplug and reset all the connectors on the rear and sides of the copier. One interface cable is responsible for communication between the reader unit and printer unit. This may solve the problem. Possible the cable is defective see if cable or cable socket is damaged.
This error also can be caused by a defective reader controller/DC Controller or Main Controller PCB.
If the simple cable check does not solve the problem a service call by a Canon dealer will required.
check your cables, remove the USB from it, and reboot, plugging back after reboot. Also check your Device Manager to make sure the printer is not having driver related errors, or the driver is missing for the printer.
