In run window type services.msc and the go to print spooler option just stop and restart the service. and also switch off and switch on the printer and try to cancel all the documents form print spooler it will remove all pending jobs. Go to printer and faxes option and choose the printer model which you installed just right click on it you will see the option of use printer online. Also I suggest you to change the usb port and the cable also still if you facing the problem follow these steps, right click on my computer and go to properties then hardware in that click on device manger and check there is any other device is listed if it is there just remove it and click for scan for hardware changes when he prompt for driver reinstall the driver cd.

Turn off the printer, try to move the print head by yourself. If you can move it smoothly, maybe print head or the holder problem.

Canon pixma MP540 printer: unable to print black ink pages....ok with blue etc.


Have you checked the ink level on the black ink cartridge? It's probably out. Or if it's a new cartridge, make sure the tape covering the connecter has been taken off.

Canon MP540 Error 6C10


Try keeping the paper only in the bottom tray (there's a tray in the bottom) Try pulling any paper out of the top and just close that top tray. Open up the head so that u can see the ink cartridges and turn the printer on and off and maybe it will center itself again. If it's still not working (even if lights aren't red and print head wont align in the center) try manually moving the head back and forth like 18 times so you can lubricate that rail in the back that's holding it. After that, re-turn it off and on again.

My ip3000 status says "collecting printer status". I have checked the cords and turned it off and back on. Still won't print. Thanks.


If lights are flashing on the printer, I need to know how many flashes to know what to do. Unless the printer is on and with a ready light, you won't be able to print or collect status.
