Re: MP600 - Says inside cover is open - but it's not!

This is a hardware problem nothing to do with software; somewhere inside the printer a cover is not closed correctly.

Our Canon Prixma MP600 cannt scan to our Windows 7 desktop. Have any ideas why not?

Do you have that icon on your desktop canon mp navigator. Usually by opening that up and clicking scan everything runs properly. One idea maybe not the best is to uninstall and reinstall the printer software. Another is to try scanning (if your model can) from both the printer and the computer by using canons software on the computer.

Those are just a couple of ideas.

My printer canon MP 600 shows error 5100 any time I try to print

In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken .

Sometimes a fault in the processor or main board could cause this issue.

I can print from the internet but not from open office or ms word

Open up your print queue. Cancel All jobs.

Go to the start menu and either click on, or search for cmd. This will open the command window. You also need to open your task manager.

In the task manager, search for a process called spoolsv.exe, or if that doesn't exist, find a process with "spool" in the name. This is your print spooling process. Right click the process, and end it. You can close the task manager now.

Next, go to the command prompt. Type "net start spooler" without the quotes, and hit enter. This should restart your spooling process. Close the command window, and try to print.

If this doesn't work, you should check to make sure you're printing to the correct printer. If it doesnt solve the problem, uninstall your current printer (you may have to end the spoolsv.exe process again), and reinstall the drivers for your particular model, which you can find at the manufacturers website.

Canon MP 600 will not print red

If you do the self test or self cleaning operations does it print red on that? If it does then the issue sounds more like a software issue rather than the hardware. If that is the case then I'd uninstall and reinstall the software drivers and see if that helps. You could also just try cleaning the heads on the red cartridge. Remove the red cart. then use a cotton bud and alcohol (I used my wifes nail varnish remover) to wipe the heads clean and dry it.

Difficulty printing

First of all, delete all the copies of that printer in the folder and try again. If possible delete them all and reinstall the printer.
