Question about Canon PIXMA iP1800 InkJet Photo Printer
My canon pixma iP1800 went offline and I can't get it to go online again. Used windows add/remove to delete printer. Tried to reinstall using 2.05 driver. Tried to swap USB cables. Unplugged power for 10 minutes. and then reinstall. cleaned out registered versions from registry. Each new step got a clean Reintall.
Best I could do was get the driver to install and get an online status, but when I tried to print, the thing went offline and I was back to scratch. install to online was done by using 2.05 driver on lpt1: printer port, but I'm sure my computer only has USB.

I think I will save you some time telling you that there is no driver for Pixma IP1800 running on Windows 98/ME.
The printer had been built to work on windows XP/Vista, and drivers for 98 were never made.
Here or here you find two of the many threads on Win 98 driver for Pixma IP1800, all of them end in nothing. I can speak portuguese, the links wrongly provided are drivers for XP, and won't work on 98, and there is also no brasilian website distributing drivers for this printer on win 98, that was just a legend.
This printer won't work on Windows 98.

Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
