My Canon MX860 is printing, or attempting too print, everything (including Word) in PDF.

Sounds interesting! Uninstall the printer and all it's utilities from your pc. Sounds as there might be a bit of corruption in the print driver. Try a roll back of your o/s to a time when it was printing correctly. Then do a disk cleanup, a defrag. Have a restart of your system and then reinstall the software the printer
The roll back/recovery might clear any issues that have happened since all was working correctly. The disk cleanup will clear all the junk on the machine that is extraneous. The defrag should put all files into locations where their contiguity ensures you have a smoothly functioning machine. It may also overwrite some of the
faulty software belonging to the old installation of the printer
Sounds like a fine plan, and it should work.

We have mx 860 and there is no pdf option for scanning to. how do we get that option?

If from the MX860 you have proceeded through the scan menu and selected your computer, and you don't see PDF as an option, you will need to re-install your PDF software onto your computer. This will most likely solve the problem. If this does not work, you may want to try cycling of your PC and the Printer. If this does not work, you should also re-install or update the MX860 software.

Canon mx860 printer not using ink from PGBK 220

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Brand new printer with brand new ink prints BLANK pages

Hi Mike This is an odd one. If it prints the bars then ir should print everything else - cleaning is just wasting ink in this case.
I'm guessing that this is still under warranty, so I would take it back and get it replaced.

Wife got a new computer with Windows 7. Trying to get it to find our wireless printer, MX860 All in one, says it can't find the printer. What can I do?

This is not a straight forward procedure. What you have to do is install the printer as a usb device. When it is connected then you can set it up wirelessly. However it all has to be done using the cd that came with the printer. You cannot repeat cannot set it up by searching in the normal way.

My Canon MX860 always defaults to FAX not PRINT

Use your operating system to choose the printer rather than the driver.
For Windows XP, go Start, Settings, Printers and Faxes. Right click on the printer and choose Set as Default Printer.

Printing labels setup on the PXMA MX860


You don't need to do anything to set the printer up except to tell it you have heavier stock than normal.

Your answer lies in the program you are using to print labels. Please tell me which program you are using and what other office type programs you have on the computer and I will try to give you a viable solution.
