I keep getting this message from my computer when I turn on my Canon MP160 printer: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43). It was working perfectly a few days ago then...

Code 43 is the death code - the unit that is generating it has stopped responding to the commands from the pc, it's dead and nothing will bring it back to life.
Nothing left to do but buying a new printer.

My HP Deskjet F380 has the latest printing software installed; it spools and is attached to my laptop in the correct USB port; but it doesn't print. The message is "no connection." It printed...

Verify that the USB connection is fully inserted in the back of the printer itself. If all is well there, try to think if you've run any updates on your laptop recently, or installed any new software that could be conflicting. If yes, try removing the new software or recent updates, and try a test print. If this still does not work, try disconnecting the printer, powering down your machine, starting it back up and then reconnecting the printer to the USB port. Sometimes you have have a glitch in the USB port that causes your computer to stop recognizing a device seemingly out of nowhere. If none of the above seems to help, it might be as simple as a USB cable that's become faulty. Hope this helps!

There can be some situations when the printer installer will not work on the computer. Sometimes there is a fault in the CD or sometimes there is a fault within the program. In any case, the printer can still be installed on the computer using the Add Printer Wizard feature of Windows. The wizard lets you choose the port where the printer will be connected as well as other settings of the printer. or get more help from here . Hope this helps you.

Try disconnecting unit from USB port, restart computer, and reinstall unit. Might try another USB port on computer. It also may be a bad printer/scanner! Try it on another computer.

Light is blinking, doesnt print, it prints before but now it doesnt. appears online and ready on the computer.

If the port had been changed to LPT1 the printer will not work.

LPT1 is the large parallel port, while you are using USB on this printer.

the red light came on probably because of a jam , or because of one of the documents in the printer cue.

The easiest thing to do is

Unplug printer usb.
Go to control panel>installed printer.
Delete all the instances of this printer from there and chose to delete drivers if asked.
Reistall the printer using the printer disk, plug in printer data cable only when asked by setup wizard.

If you have a different USB cable, also use it, just in case.

If that does not fix the problem , then there is an internal fault in the printer.

Can't print to mac wirelessly (could do it a few days ago)

I had the same problem until recently. You have to install the drivers FROM THE CD that came with the printer, instead of selecting the drivers from the default list. Then, when selecting which printer driver to use (you'll have two options) choose Canon IJ and NOT Canon MX310 series. This is a problem with their MX310 driver, which is solved using a default/generic Canon InkJet (hence, the IJ) driver. Hope this helps!
P.S. This only works on Mac OS X. I have yet to figure out how to print wirelessly through Vista. Will keep you posted.

Cannot print from Lap top using usb adapter to cannon printer.

It sounds that your problem might be on the USB to paralel adapter. Do you have another printer ti try it with ? Check the configuration for this adapter.
Good luck
