SOURCE: canon pixma mp600 error code 5100

try this solution..from fixmyprinter.com

This particular error had stumped me for a while, but I finally found the cause. As others had pointed out before, it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.

SOURCE: can't print to mac wirelessly (could do it a few days ago)

I had the same problem until recently. You have to install the drivers FROM THE CD that came with the printer, instead of selecting the drivers from the default list. Then, when selecting which printer driver to use (you'll have two options) choose Canon IJ and NOT Canon MX310 series. This is a problem with their MX310 driver, which is solved using a default/generic Canon InkJet (hence, the IJ) driver. Hope this helps!
P.S. This only works on Mac OS X. I have yet to figure out how to print wirelessly through Vista. Will keep you posted.

SOURCE: Can't print from MacBook, through Time Capsule, to Lexmark x5470

turn on the printer sharing via the system preference panel on the computer that is on the system via usb.
Then on your wifi computer look for shared printers and you'll see your printer in the list under the host computer name... use that setting and it should fire up for you!
let me know how it goes...

I have recently purchased a MacBook Pro, replacing my P.C. I can print but can't scan and send documents. I like my MP600 and would like to be able to use it in this way. I have the computer connected...


Hi
Did you install the Canon Software onto the Macbook?
Try this
Open your applications folder and locate an app called "Image Capture"
Open it. It may say that there is no image capture device connected, but it gives you a browse button. Click on it and wait a moment (make sure that the printer is powered up first of course). With a bit of luck you should suddenly see your printer listed. Give it a click and do OK or whatever it asks and then the scanning softare should start up. It will give you the c hoice of what to do with the scan in the 'scan to' box.
Post back if it works. (it generally does.)

My Mac os X v 10.5.5 suddenly won't print to my Canon MP600. I keep getting error number 306. I have restarted both the printer and Mac. I have restarted my wireless airport. Nothing works. Any ideas?


My MP600 came up error 306 for no reason. I unplugged everything and plugged it back in again (I found a clump of dust at the USB port on the hub, which could have been involved) - the printer worked again no problem.
