Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

My canon printer MP980 is constantly pausing spontaneously. I have to click on 'resume' to get it printing again, and then after e few pages it happens again. I have a new Imac, with my old Imac I had no problems at all. I upgraded everything, installed the latest drivers etc. What else can I try?

Canon LBP6000. Data transfer to the printer timed out, or a transfer error has occurred. Click [Resolve Error] to resume printing, or click [Cancel] after pausing the job, then try to print again.


Best to un-install the printer drivers, softwares related to this printer. Go to Canon.com and download the latest drivers and software. Connect the printer to the computer and let the computer recognise it and then install the drivers from your download. You can also check if there is any damage to the cable as this could also stop the communication between the computer and printer.

    Printer keeps pausing itself!!


    dev_24ind: The parallel port cannot be used for printing by default. Heaps of people have made this mistake. You need a N Boot Rom installed and N system software. Almost certainly you don't.
    Get a Network Multi PDL Printer Kit C1 for IR3300 (contains N Boot Rom and NIC aka ethernet port). A technician can install this and update system software and you will be able to print. You will be able to print over a network (which is the preffered option) use Remote User Interface and Pull Scan using Canon Network ScanGear (google it).
