Question about Canon PIXMA iP5300 InkJet Photo Printer
My Canon IP5300 does only work for a day or two and then it's over again.
Ihavere-installed the driver, changed the USB cable and aftereachaction(!)the printer is working fine again but only for a coupleofdays.
The IP5300 is connected to a PC with Windows XP installed.
Iassumethe problem is a HW problem with the USB connector (as said,Ichangedthe cable already) but to be honest, I have no clou.
Does someone do recognize this problem and can help me with a solution?
SOURCE: slow printing
I'M USING MY BJC 80 ON A PACKARD BELL M35-U-57, VISTA HOME BASIC. CONNECTED THE PRINTER WITH A GENERIC USB-PARALELL CABLE, NO DRIVER. FIRST HAD THOSE 5 TO 7 MINUTES DELAYS FOR PRINTING. WENT TO THE PRINTERS "PROPERTIES", "ADVANCED OPTIONS" AND TICKED "PRINT DIRECTLY", IN THE "PORTS" SECTION I DISABLED "BIDERECTIONAL PORT". IT'S WORKING SWEET. NO MATTER THE QUALITY. ANY COMMENT OR SUGESTION: email@example.com

Your expert wanted me to remove all the XP upgrades from the Add/Remove Programs menu (26 files individually) and restart after each one. Upon further investigation, I discovered a much easier solution. I found that Clearing the Block from the Windows Firewall fixed my problem. I clicked on a box "Unblock" in the CAPT Windows Firewall Utility window. Presto I can now print.
I fixed the problem on my own and was not able to use any of the "expert" advice. Please do not charge me for the "help".

Tuday I buy an other new cable and SUCCESS!!!: my computer see de printer ("new hardware found" when attach usb cable) , create virtual usb port, install the drivers (I have the drivers downloaded from the Canon web site) and printer is working fine.
Anyway, thank yow again for your support!

I can suggest you one thing. If you can't do it yourself, get a friend who can.
Make a small hole (using a drill) in a new cartridge. This hole should directly go to the ink cartridge. (Make sure you don't spill ink everywhere!) Make a similar hole in the old cartridge. Take a syringe and pull out some ink from the new cartridge. Put it into the old cartridge. If you can see the ink level, fill about half of the old cartridge this way. Close both holes. Now use the old cartridge in the printer!
(You can repeat this process whenever the old cartridge runs out of ink).
