    The way we fixed it was by checking the Properties on the Print Spooler service under services.msc. Go to the Log On Tab and make sure that the 'Local System account' option is selected along with the 'Allow service to interact with desktop' box. Then set the Print spooler service to auto and start it. After that you should have no problem installing your printer (s).

Why does my canon mg5420 say "printer not responding"


Whenever I hear of a "not responding" problem in the same sentence as "Wi-Fi" I question the wireless connection. I'm sure you've done the tests, but just to go over them; Is the printer working - can you get a test print out of it locally (setup)? Is the computer actually "talking" to the printer (Check network settings and local connections)? And, can you connect directly to the printer using a USB lead - and get a print? I would be tempted to tell the computer to find a new printer, in order to double check.

When I try to print from my PC the printer doesn't respond at all even though the cable is connected on both ends and the printer is turned on. Worked fine the day before.


I assume you are using a PC- All printers have a list of pending jobs refered to as the print "queue"- it should open if you double click on the default ptinter icon in the printer list- it sounds to me like your print Queue has been paused somehow and all the print jobs are being "held" until you tell the queue to restart printing

Does not respond when computer tells it to print. Long delays and sometimes never responds.


This sounds like the wrong printer has been selected in print manager. If this is the only printer connected to this pc then make sure you have set it as the default printer, either through Control Panel or start/printers and faxes

Not responding to PC instructions to print data


Hi,

You need to load the PRINTED ALIGNMENT PAGE on the scanner glass, then press on "OK" button. It should start scanning the alignment page. That way, you are completing the PROCESS of ALIGNMENT.

Thank you so much.

Test the printer itself to see if it will print a configuration page. This page will tell you if the IP addresss is still intact.

Your printer has an inner setting within the menu that tells it not to pay attention to the computer's commands. The CD that came with the printer contains the users manuals. However, this is not the default setting, so maybe someone pressed the wrong buttons in the right sequence.

The print Head has gone bad. Not using a printer that often will dry out the print head. The print head is where the ink goes. Try to get a cue tip and put some Alcohol in the place where the ink goes through. These should be small sponge like things underneath the ink cartridges.
