Question about Canon MultiPASS MP730 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Computer won't recognize printer

My MP730 printer was working fine. Then all of a sudden my computer wouldn't recognize the printer. It doesn't matter what computer I hook it up to. I have another MP730 and it works fine on all my computers but the offending printer isn't recognized by any of the computers. What's the problem ? Thanks, Barry

The printer does an Error code 0xc18a0001 Ink failure and the computer doesn't seem to take the printer on I plug it in and out doesn't matter it's just like if I wouldn't plug in any new...


TO clear the error and return the printer to working order you will need to do an ink purge and reset. The problem is caused by air in the ink cartridges. This can happen if you use refilled cartridges or if you let the ink run to low and try to print something. Here is a link to an article that explains what has happened and how to solve the problem.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Canon MP730 not recognized by Windows XP and "In Use/Memory" lite on

first check put the power wires and then connection wires it may be short so that can happen and if that doesnt work open up your printer and check it out from the inside if some thing is not wrong with it, and do try it on other pc.

HPC3180 PhotoSmart printer - works great - I use brand X ink cartridges, and they work fine. But I just formatted my computer and downloaded the latest HP driver and software. My printer just ran out of...

Not Familiar with brand "X".. Know about brand "X" washing powder anmd "DAZ". I take it is not the same.

OH! I hate the words "Just Formatted My Computer". Ypou have actual answered your own question, please please say you have the "OLD PRINTER PROG" or a copy lurking on a long forgotten copy CD?

Yes! it will be trial and error, reload the old version of your printer. New updates sometimes leave out differant suppliers and their progs, infact they may have fallen out, we will never know.

As a matter of interest, reinsert the old cartridge and see if it sees that though empty, then if fails to see that you have your answer.

Were's is "WV" I'm in the UK. Hope all works?

Canon mf6500 not printing

I would uninstall the printer software and reinstall it to your computer. Once installed you might need to reboot computer for it to recognize your printer. Hope this helps!

Canon smartbase mp730

Have you tried doing some maintenance like nozzle check,printing head alignment,clean the nozzles if not then try it by going into control panel - printers and faxes - where you see your mp730 right click and go to properties then click on the last tab which would be maintenance.Try those options if none worked then u might have to replace you print head and that should work
