Re: Connecting my new PIXMA MX700 to my computer

Please read your owners manual.

It's very simple to connect a printer, and ever simpler to read the part of the manual that tells you how.

Perhaps you should get a friend to help you. If I say "Power Cord" and "USB Cable" will you know the difference? If not, I probably couldn't explain it to you through type.

If you think you could tell them apart, then do this:

1. Make sure you have a USB cable. Most printers don't come with a cable to connect to a computer. If yours did, you'll have two cables in the box. The USB and the Power cables.
If you don't have a USB cable, you'll have to go buy one.

2. Put the CD into your CD ROM drive, follow the instructions. When the computer tells you to, plug your USB cable into the back of the printer and the computer. Plug the power into the printer. Turn the printer ON.

The computer should detect the printer. Follow the instructions on the computer screen.

That should be all there is to it.

Canon Pixma ip3600 message saying printer is not online

This could be a problem with the port. If you have the printer attached to a USB hub, directly connect to the computer. Try connecting to a different USB port and test the current port with a known working device. Consider trying a new USB cable (minor damage could be a factor in signal loss).

I hope this helps.

I got a new computer and I am trying to install the all in one but I do not have the disk.

Have you looked on CANON's web-site for a "downloadable" version of the software for your printer?

Canon MX700 network problems

Once you have it installed and working on the USB port go to the properties page of the printer.
1) Select the "Ports" tab.
2) Select "Add Port".
3) Select "Canon BJNP Port".
4) Select "New Port".
5) Fill in the IP Address of your printer and select "Next".

Make sure that the Port is checked back in the properties page and select "Apply" and your done. Do a test print and your printer should work on your network. You may still need to fix the settings on your firewall or router to allow access if it does not print.
