Not with a canon but I have seen this on other mfr peripherals. It is worth checking to see if there is a newer version of BIOS etc for your PC at the manufacturers website / support / downloads tab.

I upgrade my dell lab-top to windows 7 but now I can not print anything on my canon pixma ip3000 printer.

Are you directly connected to the printer? Did you download and install the drivers? (For Win7, this will happen in Windows Update. However if Windows Update isn't set for automatic installation for drivers, you will need to start Windows Update and install the drivers. Just check for updates and install.) Was the laptop connected to the network when you installed the printer? (Windows Update needs the network - make sure your firewall didn't block the program. Wired networks are in many ways better for Windows Update since there are fewer dropped connections.)

Does the printer show up in Devices and Printers (Start > Devices and Printers)? What is its status? Try a new cable or a different port. Make sure the ports are working (check the device manager (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager).) If these aren't working (shown by an x in a red triangle or an exclamation point (yellow triangle) then you should try to update the driver for them.)

Once it is working, you may want to download and install the add-on from here:

I hope this helps.

I have Win. 7 and have tried to use my pixma ip3000 with it. According to my pc, I have successfully installed the Win. 7 drivers for this printer. Yet when I try to print a document, I get a message...

remove usb cable, remove driver and restart your pc. after booting re connect printer usb cable from there found new hardware must be appear and then load your driver manually. if no new hardware found replace usb cable, or maybe the problem is in printer itself.

Assuming no hardware issues with your printer/PC, a few ideas you could try:
1. Update your Windows specifically your USB drivers;
2. try the rear USB port if on a desktop;
3. uninstall all the USB devices in your Device Manager, reboot and allow Windows to auto detect/install the USB;
4. download latest drivers and re-install (of course all instances of the PIXMA iP3000 in your Printers & Faxes must have been initially deleted/removed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up, your OS, what have you done so far or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
