Question about Canon PIXMA MP780 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I recently reformatted my computer and now I cannot get the printer to work. I can copy but it will not print from the computer. I have been unable to install the drivers because the wizard cannot find the necessary software. Please help, I have tried using the CD that came with the printer but it will not read the CD. I know my CD drive is working I can open other CD with the drive.

You have answered the question you posed. Simple- you cannot print because the DRIVERS for the printes is NOT INSTALLED.

Solution: Go to the manufacturer website, download the drivers relative to your printer model, install the drivers, and now you can print.

Oh, if your drive can read other CD's then the disc you are using is either DIRTY or DAMAGED.

Good Luck

My all in one printer/scanner is not scanning. prints and copies fine, but does not scan


Form your issue that you are able to print and copy but unable to scan it is very clear that it is a software issue. Copy and scan fuctions work this way.

Copy - completely related to hardware.
Scan - related to software

uninstall and reinstall the full version software from Hp for the operation system of your computer.
