    Hi Terry, I only disconnected my Canon BJC2000sp for about two hours while I installed Canon MX300, a three-in one. When I tried to connect the cable from the computer, I had it wrong way round. The contacts touched briefly, maybe I fried something....? Regards, Keith

Why does my 7520 printer print old documents.

Your computer has "queued" various pages to be printed.
When it detects that it cannot completely complete the output, it restarts the sending of the information to the printer.

From the Windows "Control Panel", select "Printers".
Select your printer. Click to "show what is printing".
From there, you can select an item, and choose to "cancel" it.

When I print, on the paper there is several blue verticle lines at the top of the paper and halfway down and some of the lines are broken. Thankyou Tom

Reset the Printer If there is static interference, or loose connections with the product, this can result in bands or lines in the copy, fax, or scan output. To resolve this issue, check the product connections and reset the product. Make sure the product is on, and then disconnect the power cord from the product.
  1. Disconnect the USB cable from the product, and then disconnect it from the computer.
  2. Reconnect the USB cable to the computer, and then reconnect it securely to the product.
  3. Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet, and then reconnect it to the wall outlet.
  4. Reconnect the power cord to the product.
  5. Press the Power button (c02062868.gif ) to turn on the product. If you have duplexer try to open it and clean the rollers of the printer and the duplexer. This usually happens if the rollers are dirty.

Can no longer access Supply Levels info when checking on ink cartridge status. Message = "Information Not Available." Used to be able to see graphic showing tank levels.

You might have to delete the printer tools software and the printer driver and reinstall. Also turn off the printer disconnect the usb and reconnect after you have reinstalled the printer drivers and tools. see if there is an updated driver on the manufacturers website.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Its not printing

First, disconnect and reconnect the printer cable. If no difference, try reinstalling the printer driver by deleting your printer icon, disconnecting the printer cable, reconnecting the cable and see if the printer is found. Then, install the printer driver. Good luck.

Printer stalls when sent a print job.

I'd suggest reinstalling the printer driver.

In Start - Printers and Faxes, find the printer and delete the icon. Power off the printer and disconnect the cable from the printer to the PC. Restart your workstation and log in. Reconnect your printer cable to the PC. The printer should be found. Install the driver and the printer should work. Good luck.

Recurring "cartridge successfully installed" message

Download the Kyocera Driver Deleter tool from here:

Run the tool and delete the driver for your HP. Disconnect the printer, then use Add/Remove programs to uninstall the HP software.


Reinstall the HP software and reconnect the printer when prompted by the software install.

After this I didn't get the message again.

Hope this helps!

When I hit 'file' then 'print' nothing happens

Go to your device manager and make sure that you have a driver for the printer. Or uninstall the printer then reinstall it. sounds like the printer driver has been deleted

Reinstall software each time the printer is reconnected

hmmm...maybe the way to do this is to use the remove hardware icon in control panel, instead of simply disconnecting the printer from the laptop.

also, go to and get the newest drivers, which are almost certainly more recent vintage than those on the cd.
