Canon have had a serious problem with some software that would not work or crash every now and then . Drivers can be re installed or upgraded to resolve some problems . try to re install the printer driver disc but make sure to remove it first from your hard drive through the add or remove tab in your control panel .

COMPUTER SAYS PRINTER IS OFF LINE HAVE TRIED MULTIPLE CABLES


Hi,
did you try uninstalling the printer drivers and re-installing?
Drivers are here:

http://support-au.canon.com.au/P/search?model=PIXMA%20iP100&filter=0&menu=Download

Assuming you are running WinXP go here:
http://support-au.canon.com.au/P/search?model=PIXMA+iP100&menu=download&filter=0&tagname=g_os&g_os=Windows%20XP

If you are using something else like Vista or Windows 7, change the selection at the right hand side of the web page, then select the driver software. Do not select x64 unless you are running a 64 bit operating system. It is highly likely you are running a 32 bit version of XP, Vista or Win7.

Does the printer get recognized on another laptop or computer? If it gets recognized then there is nothing wrong with the printer and cable. In that case, on your computer it's the driver or perhaps you have a dodgy USB port. Can you try another USB port on your computer?
Cheers,
Steve

Connect HP 3015 all in one printer to Aspire One


Disconnect the printer from your computer. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Printers. Right-click on the HP 3015 printer and select Delete. Confirm the deletion of the printer. If it asks about removing unused driver files, answer Yes. Reinstall the driver files using the provided setup program. Do NOT use the Add printer... dialogs. If the installation program prompts you to plug in and turn on the printer then do so, but do not do this before it prompts you. This is what generally causes the missing files problem. If it goes completely through the installation without telling you to plug in the printer (which would be unusual for HP printers), plug it in when it completes. It should automatically recognize the printer being plugged in (and turned on, if necessary) and then finalize the driver configuration.

Canon MF 4350d Wont install


Almost the exact same problem. New 4350d Canon printer trying to connect it with Dell 8300 with XP. The computer says it does not recognize. Tried everything - reinstall drivers, download drivers, tried every USB port, swapped cables, spoke with Canon support and finally took the printer back and got a new one (Canon support person decided the USB board must be bad). New machine - same old problem.

Installation


http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=357&modelid=11642

Is where you can download your drivers to install it (after entering your operating system IE Windows XP or Vista). In addition to this you will require an A to B USB Cable (can be found in any computer store). You will also need a standard 2 pin power cord. These are common and are used on many things from stereos to printers. Any printer or computer shop should have some laying around (we have thousands here). Finally you will need to see if there are any ink cartridges in the printer (and if there are whether or not they work). If not then you will need to purchase a Canon PG-40 Black Cartridge and a Canon CL-41 Colour cartridge. This will be your last step though as you won't be able to test your cartridges until it is hooked to your computer.

Good Luck.
Please rate my advice, good or bad.

Canon Pixma MP530 multifunction printer comes up as a fax


This is absolutely the right solution. I used this for my Canon MP780 printer under Vista, as well. I want to include all of the keywords here. It is important to note that the DPR-1260 shipped with Firmware Version 1.12 cannot be seen by Visa until it is upgraded with the Version 1.21 firmware, but after downgrading back to the Version 1.12 firmware, the DPR-1260 is still visible and it now recognizes my Canon MP780 multifunction printer as a printer and not as a fax machine. I plan to post this same solution to other sites, so that hopefully others can get their DPRs working again. Whew!
