Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Smoking printer previously unreliable.

Previously, when the printer was ready for use, it would only work about half the time. Then when I was ready to print on another day, I would get the print-outs from the time I couldn't get it working properly.
This week, the printer was actually smoking and being afraid of causing a fire, I shut it off.

    If your printer is still umder warrenty then you can go to vendor.



Good call turning it off. Most likely the power supply board shorting out.
You didn't list the model number, but I can assure you, that unless it's a VERY high end printer, it's not going to be worth repairing/replacing the board.

Burning smell

The burning smell can be cause by the Fuser. Maybe a piece of paper got jammed or if you have used any special media like labels or glossy paper if any of that got stuck in the fuser it will stay there until its burned out. Another thing could be that the HVPS is shorting out thus causing the smoke and the burning smell. The best option is to inspect the interior of the fuser and make sure there are no paper jammed in it.

49.4c02 problem.

A 49 error is a corrupt print job. Delete your pending print job then reboot the printer. OR unplug the network cable, reboot printer, it will say Ready. Do not plug in network cable otherwise you will get 49 error. Plug in USB cable, download Firmware upgrade from HP.COM, then plug network cable back in and watch as the previously corrupted print jobs translate fine and print print print ;)

Network USB composite device not ready What do I do - this use to work but I re-installed the HP printer software and here I am.

You may have placed the HP printer on the USB port previously assigned to the router. I would delete the hp drivers completely and reload. Be sure to specify a USB port not being used or install a new port at the prompting.

Previously operating Canon Pixma IP6700D is now not recognized

Question: Was it working on this same computer and the same Windows Operating System before? If so, I'd re-install the software for the printer. If you have a different Operating System, then I'd go on line and get the latest update drivers for that operating System. Hope this is helpful. Bud

Some subtle meaning here perhaps generated by the printer software.
Check out the term in Windows help, but you may have to go to Canon support.
