Re: Help! My Printer wont work

I had a similar problem with a Multipass F30 - check that the Canon Service "mpservice" is running. In the situation I had it was set to automatic, but the service was stopped. You can locate the Services by going to the Control Panel, then Performance1.gif & Maintenance if you are using catagory view or directly to Administrative Tools if in Classic View. Double click on Administrative Tools and then open Services. Scroll down and locate mpservice to see if it is running. I hope this helps.
It may also be worth removing and reinstalling the software - I was able to find an updated copy of the Canon software online and that helped get the printer working again.

Why wont printer start up ?

It could be a number of reasons:
1. a simple solution is to initiate what is called, 'power recycling' (although this is assuming that the printer did already work at some prior point); this is where you turn off the printer for about 5 minutes, then turn on, which usually allows the system to reengage itself.
2. did you install the software for the printer? If you did not then your PC might not know the printer is attached. Is the software installed properly?; meaning you must unplug the printer from the PC, then install the software, then connect the printer to the PC after the software is completely installed. If you did it in reverse, then you need to uninstall the software, then start over by doing what I just mentioned.
3. the USB port you have the printer cord inserted into could be bad on your PC.
4. the printer itself has an internal problem and needs to be repaired, or if the warranty is still in place, have it replaced with another new unit.

I loaded my printer cd onto my laptop and when I get to the connect the printer with a usb cable I can't press continue.

You might have installed the software/driver already while the printer is connected. You can uninstall the driver/software first then re-install the driver/software then reboot the pc. Once done, just connect the printer. It should work.

Hi, I'm trying to print in b&w. The printer says " no cartridge" although all four of the cartridges are in. It says "open scanner cover, then reinstall ink". If I lift the cover it then says "install...

Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts, tighten the cartriges onto the slots.

I've lost my set up cd and although the printer and copyer work I cannot scan a document onto the computer.

Scanning a document to your computer may require the Lexmark OCR scan software which is only available in the installation disk. Try to contact Lexmark technical support to request for the installation disk. Thank you for choosing Lexmark.
