Question about Canon PIXMA MX850 Multifunction Printer

1 Answer

I have an Canon MX850 printer -- when I try to print anything using the BlueTooth connection, it says the printer is offline. How do I set it "online"? It is plugged in. It is the same as it has always been, but somehow it has been turned "off-line".

Hi Cynthia
Any recent changes like moving cabinets or furniture?It doesn't have to be anything large,a Blue Tooth connection is really short range and it doesn't take much to interrupt the signal.
Take a look around for anything that may be out of place or new.

I have a canon pixma MX850. I have connected to my network. Printing works fine. When I go to scan, the printer ask to which computer. I don't understand the question, much less the solution. Ho


Many machines allow network printing but not network scanning. I think you will find that the MX850 driver and MP Navigator software simply does not support network scanning. I suggest you query Canon directly.

Go to Printers and Faxes and right click on your printer. Select Properties from that menu. One of the properties says something like set as Default Printer.

Printing labels setup on the PXMA MX860


Hello,

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.

RE: Canon Bu-20 bluetooth printer adaptor. I just purchased one and there are NO instructions in the package. Do you know of an instruction page/manual?


With my MX850 printer the bluetooth setup instructions were only in the on-screen printer manual, not with the bluetooth adapter, and not with the printer documentation.

In my case it didn't help as Windows is not discovering the bluetooth adapter for some reason.
