Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Installation - 85%

I've had my printer for 2 1/2 years, worked fine up until this month. It stopped printing. I uninstalled/reinstalled several times. I can install the software but it stops at 85% and won't connect. Is it my printer or computer?

    I tried your suggestion, downloaded a new printer driver. I thought it worked but when I tried installing the printer programs it wouldn't let me because of the new driver. I uninstalled the new driver and reinstalled the printer with the CD, it worked this time. But I have no idea why! I worked on this situation for over a week,steady. I appreciate your quickness and willingness to help.

My pixma MP 495 worked fine for several years. Then for months it took more time to get started but finally it always did. Now, though the wifi light is on, both computers say the printer is offline.


You can go into device manager, locate the printer, and uninstall it. Turn computer off and reboot. It should reinstall the software - then see if it works. If nada then go the software route.

Try uninstalling all printer software and reinstalling a fresh copy to see what happens.

BJC 85 not printing after head replacement


I have similar problem. Print head won't print, then I clean with alcohol, and get rid of old ink inside. But then head seems to just shut down. I have several print heads and printers that have plenty of ink, but head won't work. I refuse to think the print head will break so easily. I used my BJC 85 for YEARS with no problem whatsoever, and suddenly, since last winter, I have 4 printers that have stopped printing.
I usually end up just buying another used printer on ebay until that one stops printing.

Did you repaired old drivers? if so first uninstall your products drivers and also its folders from program files, then uninstall "wrong update" and reinstall scanner. sometimes built in scanning modules comes wrong but everything works with original scanning software, use different software to scan and some of them may work perfectlly.

Printer will not stop printing until it runs out of paper


Delete all printers, uninstall related drivers and printer software. I have uninstalled and deleted related folders (but don;'t delete from Recycle Bin in case you need to put them restore them). Boot up and Windows should reinstall correct drivers through the internet. Reinstall photo programs with disk that came with printer.

Uncompleted printing job


My Lexmark Z715 printer has always worked fine until this morning. I turned it on and the light blinked so I turned it off and then on again and the cartridge slamed one side of the pinter and then slamed the other side. I tried it several times and always the same. It would not stop in the middle so I could check it out. Does it need replacing?
