Question about Canon PIXMA iP4300 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Cannon MP510 - Cannot communicate with the printer. Bi-directiona

The "printer status" of my Canon MP510 printer has stopped working and, instead of showing the printer status while printing (including the remaining ink volume), I get the error message :

"Cannot communicate with the printer. Turn Enable bi-directional support on in the printer's Properties dialog box".

The printer is connected by a USB cable. The "enable bi-directional support" option is also greyed out in the printer's properties.

I have un-installed and re-installed the printer drivers but the problem still persists. The printer prints correctly and printing parameters can be adjusted as normal.

Basically, my computer can send information to the printer but cannot receive information back !

Because the printer is not responding, access from another PC on my home Network is not available - it is shown as 'off-line'.

Any assistance that can be offered would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

John

The printhead always burns out the black first, it's the most used.You will need a new printhead QY6-0070-000, around $50.00

I can't get my canon MP510 printer to scan. Can


If you are pushing scan and then black or color and the scanner is not working then check to see if the scanner loaded whth the rest of the options. Click start, chose printers and faxes, choose scanners and cameras, right click WIA Canon MP510, choose properties, check status. If not active or not there, you will need to reinstall.
