Question about Canon BJC 80 InkJet Printer
Printer is hooked up to computer and printer light is on, however, when I try to print, the printer does nothing, no lights move or any sound. the printer has not been used for several month.
When you look in the system file, (Start, Settings, Control Panel, Printers & Faxes) does the printer show? if it does not appear, you might have the cable from the printer to the computer w/a poor connection.
Are you getting an error message when you try to print? You should be building up printing tasks in the printer queue. Are you seeing this? sometimes it looks like a small printer in the lower right corner of your task bar.
Are there print cartridges in the printer and are they free to move? If the cartridges don't move, (you should be able to move the cartridges with a little bit of effort), try gently moving them.
With the printer on, disconnect the cable from the printer to the computer. You shopuld a beep, saying that the computer no longer sees the printer. Reconnect and try printing again.

Make sure you select the printer has the default printer under the Printers and Faxes option on control panel.
Simply right click your printer and select the option "Set as the default printer"
To make sure it is solved, go to the printer properties under the right-click menu and hit "Print test page"
