Why does my canon pixmar IP4200 keep saying two

Maybe one ink chip is faulty. Try to remove one and leave in the other (do the same for each one) to see if printer says something different. Otherwise your ink sensor could be broken.

My canon ip4200 is showing up as "offline" and i cannot figure out how to change it to "online" status. can anyone tell me what I need to do? Thanks!

make sure it is turned on. Remove the cable to the PC and plug it back in again. It is possible you have more than one printer showing up. Go to printers and make sure you're iP4200 shows up and is online.
If this doesn't help, go to Device Manager and see if the printer shows up in the Device list. If it doesn't, then the cable connection needs to be looked at. If it does, make sure the driver is installed properly.

I have a canon bjc 80 connected via usb to acer laptop with vista on says hardware successfully installed & sounds like it is printing but will not feed paper or print !! have not used a disc to install...

Purchase a PCMCIA parallel port adapter. the USB to parallel adapters are a pain to set up and are flakey at best. The PC card adapter provides a native parallel port to laptops without one, and works perfectly in ALL cases, even with the scanner cartridge.

Only Prints in Magenta

The cartridges may still be at fault, or there is a problem with the processor board in the printer. I have also seen problems with the ink jets in these.

cleaning the ink tanks did help a lot but it's still not perfect, can age of the printer affect print quality at all
thanks so much, amanda

Canon Pixma 4200 does not print double-sided with Mac

First, I'd strongly suggest you update your drivers.. there are newer drivers that came out in Nov 07, Dec 07, Jan 08 and even Feb 08. Here's the link to Mac OS drivers for your specific printer...

Please download and install all of the applicable drivers/software, because I have found that features such as color management come from the Easy Photo software, not the driver stuff.

The second link here is the directions on how to set up the duplex printing in Mac OS systems. It's a step-by-step and seems pretty comprehensive.

Good Luck!
Let us know how it works out for you!

Red colour prints brown

Just replace the non genuine inks with proper Canon ones and then do about 4 full cleans, that should fix it. If not you will have to replace the printhead, which is usually caused by using non genuine ink. Good luck
