Question about Canon PIXMA iP1800 Printer

Open Question

Printer is unresponsive. Power is on. USB cable double checked. I just replaced the two printer cartridges.Checked printer status and it said printer is not responding.

Drivers are fine and installed. I rebooted my Windows 7 Ultimate and I get the same status. I tried a different USB cable with the same results. The computer recognizes the printer but evidently no information is going to the printer. I went into printer properties (mgmt tab) and tried to turn off printer from there to see if the printer can receive instructions from the computer but no go. Please help! My name is Joe.

SOURCE: Printer doesn't respond to computer

there were many instances why the computer says "printer is not responding" either it is not configured correctly. for a start..

try this go to start- printer- right click the desired printer- open up properties- then click print test pages-

if it does print then it should work on all platforms, if it doesnt then you might have installed the wrong drivers.

try this first

SOURCE: Canon Pixma ip5200 under Windows 7 - not responding

Did you download the latest drivers from the website? It looks like they were posted this month. I would report the issue. It is quite likely there is a compatibility issue. Have you contacted canon at all about this problem? Once I have more information I can try and assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

My printer is a HP- 6210, Message: "remove and


Hello Cliff, welcome to FixYa.

Hard Reset the printer by doing the following:
  • Remove all the ink cartridges.
  • While the printer in ON, unplugged the power cable from the power source.
  • Disconnect the USB cable at the back of the printer (if your printer is connected through a USB cable)
  • Restart your computer.
  • Connect back the USB cable.
  • Plug the power cable to its power source.
  • Turn ON the printer if it does not turn ON automatically.
  • Install the ink cartridges.
  • If the printer prompts for an print head alignment, please do so.

If the problem persists, replace the ink cartridge. The cartridge might be defective since you already have tried to clean the contacts.

Keep me posted.

Printer and status light flashing - feed not working. Have checked cables.


The flashing light could indicate either a communication problem between one of your cartridges and the printer, a short in one of the cartridges, paper jam or the cartridge carrier has stalled. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:
  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Make sure there are no foreign objects or debris in the feeder.
  2. Open the printer cover and remove both the cartridges.
  3. While the cover is open, ensure there are no paper jams and the cartridge carrier is free from obstructions.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.
  7. Close the printer cover and check the light status.
  8. If light on printer is normal, open the printer cover and reinsert the other cartridge. Check the light status.
  9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the light to flash with a new cartridge. You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.
  10. Load some paper.
  11. Try to print again.
If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I can not get anything to print on my Epson NX420 using my IMAC. It says the printer is offline and I can't even print a test page. Can you help?


I'm assuming the printer worked previously from the iMac and now it does not. If you never had it connected, please add a comment to this effect, and include your OS version.

First, Open the Print Center (Printer Utility) and check the status of the printer. It may be listed as stopped. If so, delete any extra print jobs (additional attempts to print the page), then click the Start Jobs icon.

You can verify printer connectivity by clicking Add in the Printer List (if that is not visible, select Show Printer List from the View menu). Be sure to select either the USB or wireless network protocol connection. If the NX420 shows up, you have a good connection. In that case, click cancel and skip the next paragraph.

If you are printing via USB, check the cable (I sometimes forget to plug in my printer cable after downloading from my camera). If you are printing via your wireless network, check the status of the wireless connection from the printer.

Also, in the printer utility window, click the Supply Levels icon to verify that all of the ink cartridge levels are high enough to permit printing.

Are there any error messages on the printer display? A fault detection will take the printer offline.

I Have HP Photosmart 6350 and replaced the three colors ink. I'm now getting error code 9a0036 which tells me to turn off printer and then start again. It doesn't solve problem. Have checked documentation...


First follow these simple instructions:
Remove all the cartridges, clean the contact points on the cartridges and on the printer using soft brush/cotton dipped in alcohol/acetone /spirit.
While the cartridges are kept for drying, do the following:
Turn it off > Disconnect usb cable, power cord, inthernet cable; >remove the papers from the tray >open the back panel door (the rear door where you clear paper jam). Also turn of the main switch which the dc adapter plugged in. After keeping it Off for about 5 minutes, turn on again with only the power cord connected, and again leave it on for few minutes > turn it off > connect all the cables > again turn it On and keep pressing the power button while it boots up. Now you can install the cartridges. Check the status message. Hopefully it should be gone by now.

If the problem persists, there must be internal hardware/firmware problem and will be needed to call for service.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a Canon Pixma MX330 color printer. It gets used only occasionally, usually to print brochures and the like. I recently switched it to copy mode by pressing the "copy" button on the front; now it...


When you double click the Printer and Faxes icon in the Control Panel you will see the printer that your computer is currently using. See.... if the printer image is clear it is online and ready to use, if its blurred then its in offline mode and cannot be use.

To correct offline printer.. some possible reasons is on the usb cable.. check if there is no open wire along the cable...Inserting the USB connector on the other usb slot of the cpu sometimes work just wait first until it is read.

If the printer is still blurred and offline after checking the usb connection, the 2nd thing to do is check the properties of the printer if it is set to offline mode. how? Double click your printer icon. It will display the print jobs window. Click on the Printer tab and uncheck on the "Use printer Offline". Cancel all pending print jobs, close the printer window and try again to print.

Dell photo 924 is completely unresponsive. Power


Pitch it. There does not appear to be a firmware update. That would be the only thing that would have a chance of fixing this. Otherwise, the controller board is shot. The cost of repair is more than the printer, buy a new one.

My HP Officejet J4540 All-in-one printer is showing Offline. I have checked all connections and all appears ok. Could you tell me how to change that status to Ready?


It shows offline if the printer is not communicating. Initially open printers folder and right click the printer icon and check if "use offline" option is not ticked.if its ticked then un-tick it. if everything looks fine then:
1)first try unplugging printer from main power cord for a minute and then plug back in and check after refreshing if it becomes ready.
2)other thing to do is to remove the usb cable from behind the printer and plug back in after 45 seconds.
3)it is also quite possible that the usb port or cable might have gone faulty.in that case try replacing usb cable and check.
thanks ,keep updated and accept the solution.
