Hello Kamar,
First a question or two. Does the 1720 connect to any other wireless device like a router or remote hard drive? If it does then then problem may be in the Pixma printer. If you do not have a router that also will be a problem. This wireless printer will not work without a router or WAP while the laptop can thru it's 100base-T hardwire connector. If you do have a wireless point then go to the following Cannon website to access the wireless configuration help.

Now is step4 you are instructed to get the name(SSID) and the network key of your wireless hardware. Your wireless hardware may be configured to not broadcast the name so when you reach step7 you may have to enter the name in the address screen.

We hope that this helps. If you have other questions. Please return and post them here.

Which port does the phone line plug in for fax capability

There are usually two telephone jacks on the rear - one is marked LINE and the other is PHONE or EXT. The phone line from the wall should go into the jack marked LINE. If you want to attach a handset as well, or pass-thru for regular calls, hook the phone to the PHONE or EXT jack.

How do I get rid of the lines when I make copies. It dose not happen if I print a scan

If you are using the ADF ( automatic document feed ) for your copies, raise the scanner cover and clean the strip window to the left of the main platen. If you are using the platen for copies and getting lines where scans are clean - you have a physical issue and it should be checked out by a technician.

Canon pixma 882

bad cartridges or you set it not to remind you of ink running low
If so maybe try to remove the head and let it cap.
Unplug it for 30 minutes and re-install head etc.

Can't connect wirelessly from inspiron 1720 to canon pixma mx 882

Hello Kamar,

Is your 1720 hard wired to your router? if so, you may not have the WiFi switched on on the PC. Do you have 5 vertical bars in the bottom right hand corner of the screen? If not, you need to switch the WiFi on with the switch at the front of the left hand side panel. o
Once WiFi is active, make sure the printer is on and in WiFi setup then install the printer software on the 1720 and follow the instructions.
I hope this cures the problem.

Kind regards,

Canon mx 882 printer looses wifi connection

It could be that your printer or your router is losing the ip address. You can set a permanent IP address in the machine on the same range as your router. eg 192.168.x.50.
This means the router will always find it and you can also set the address in printer port settings on your computer in the control panel.

The printer head (with ink cartridges) runs back and forth on a silver track. The serial number is on a white sticker on the track. You may need a flashlight to find it.
