Re: canon L:BP3500 with Vista business

Here are solutions to some common problems with Vista that you might encounter while trying to add or use network printers,

If you have used the printer before without problems, try these options:

• Make sure that the network is working and that your computer is properly connected to the network. For more information, see the following Help topics:
View the status of your home network
Identify and resolve home network problems
Troubleshoot network and Internet connection problems
• Check the status of the printer in the print queue, or go to the printer to make sure that is it powered on and ready to use.
• If the printer is plugged in to another computer and shared on the network, make sure that computer is turned on. If it is turned on and the problem persists, contact the computer owner to make sure that the computer is connected to the network.
• If you are trying to print to a printer that you added using a TCP/IP address instead of a printer name, make sure that your computer is connected to the Internet or the network where the printer is installed. If you recently experienced a power outage, the printer TCP/IP address might have changed. The new address will not work with the printer port that you used to connect the printer to your computer. Try to add the printer again. For more information, see Add or remove a printer.
If you recently installed a new version of Windows, changed the printer driver software, or are trying to print to the printer for the first time, you might need to install printer drivers that are compatible with the version of Windows that you're running. If you are trying to use a printer that is plugged in to another computer and shared on the network, make sure that a driver for your version of Windows is installed on the other computer.

Hope this helps

My cannon ip6000D printer is saying its offline and wont print.. please help


Go to system settings and select the 'Printer' option.

Right-click on the printer and enable the 'Use Printer Online' function.

Cancel all the printing jobs till that moment and redo the process.

Sometimes the 'Printer Offline' message occurs due to a 'Job Stuck' issue.

Check all network connections and functions.

Be sure the network interfaces work properly.

Turn the printer off and on to see whether the device is working properly.

Prints one or two lines & then stops & says "outbind" error

Hi lhessel,

The best solution is to contact Cannon on the net, ask for tech support and download any updates available for your printer (make sure they are for the operating system you are using, i.e. Windows XP Home or Professional Version, Windows Vista).

I have installed cannon pixma ip 2600 on my vista and it will not print says an error occured

Some time ago I helped I friend with a simular problem, a Canon printer and Windows Vista. An error message came up when trying to install the printer driver. I looked through the windows register using regedit.exe and deleted all occurancies of Canon. (Be careful when doing this) . After doing so I restarted the PC, downloaded a fresh driver (by saving it to disk), doubleclicked to unpack it and finally installed. This might help you. Good luck!

Vista + cannon BJC 250 = error

Go to

and try the XP driver. If this doesn't work, you may not be able to interface this printer to Vista.
Let me know if this works.

Windows vista drivers

Sadly if printer manufacturer doesnt support Vista then you are out of luck. Sometimes if a printer has a big userbase, for example design studios or printing firms. Then a 3rd party might produce unofficial drivers. I have had a look but cannot see anywhere that are offering Vista drivers.
