Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer
Hi! I'm quite puzzled by a printer/mac problem I have.
About six months ago the printer (an Canon Pixma IP4200) suddenly stopped printing. I have a powermac G4 tower (running on OSX 10.4.10 at the time). I thought it was the printer, so I took it in and was told it was ok--that it printed fine for them. Indeed when I got home I hooked it up to an older G3 (running 10.3.9) and it worked perfectly. The only thing I could think of was that an OS update possibly did something. I have since updated again (to 10.4.11), hoping that would undo something, but no luck.I have literally spent hours on the phone with both Canon and Apple and neither could solve the problem. I have checked cables, ports, downloaded and installed new driver, logged in as a root user, etc. and nothing gets more than a test print from the printer. (It shows up in the USB chain in system profiler.) Any suggestions would be most appreciated, as I'd rather solve the problem than go out and buy another printer which could suddenly do the same thing!
Thanks in advance!
Hi there , i had a similar problem with the Canon Pixma IP 5000 when hooking up a wireless network.It stopped printing & the only solution was to uninstall printer/software,reboot & install as if you were hooking up printer for the first time.Sometimes software can be a problem if not installed in the right order.I had to completely remove sound card software after installing with antivirus already running.Antivirus had to go on last for everything to work.Still fine after 3 years! Hope you get printer running on newer OS.
