SOURCE: Canon PIXMA MP190 'not responding'

There are possible causes of this not responding status message you get. you will try out these option i have listed here and see which one resolves the problem. after each one, try to print from a file and from the web.
1. Configure driver to correct printer port
On the 'Ports' tab of 'Printer Properties' window, select the correct port for the printer driver.
From the Windows desktop, open the printer's properties window.
Click the Ports tab.
Below 'Print to the following port(s)' section, select the port to which your printer is connected.
Click 'Apply' to accept the changes.

Click General tab and then click 'Print Test Page' to confirm the changes corrected the issue.
2. Checking USB Connections
You should disconnect and reconnect the USB cable at both ends to ensure there is a secure connection on the device side as well as the computer side. It may also be necessary to try a different USB port on the computer. Additionally, you may need to disconnect other USB devices, temporarily, in order to determine if a conflict exists.
Disconnect one end of the cable and then reseat it ensuring the cable is firmly seated into the USB port. If the USB cable is plugged into a hub instead of directly into the computer, try connecting the USB cable directly into the computer.
Repeat step one to reseat the cable on the other end.
3. If there is still no communication, then it may be necessary to try a different USB cable or a different port on the computer.
when you are through, restart the system.
4. Uninstall and Reinstall the Driver
If the MP Navigator or the MP drivers are no longer required, or if they are not installed correctly, uninstall them.
Caution: Uninstalling means deleting software, such as MP drivers, from the computer. Once the software has been deleted the unit cannot be used through the computer until the software has been reinstalled.
Note: Login as a user with Administrator privileges to uninstall . Turn off any programs running in the background, such as antivirus programs and firewalls before begining.

Login as a user with Administrator privileges to install on WindowsXP/Vista/2000.
Close any antivirus software that may be running prior to installing the drivers.
Turn off the printer and disconnect the cable connecting the computer and the printer.
Insert CD-ROM in the computer. (The CD-ROM will start automatically and the following window will be displayed on the screen.)

SOURCE: Canon pixma mx340 4-in-1 wireless

error 6000 is a paper jam, which means there is something in the flag that senses whether or not there is paper in the path. Look very carefully in the area just before the paper comes out before the printing area. You will likely find a small piece of paper stuck, or a small object. Often a small inspection mirror helps.

To whom may it concern, I current have Canon MX340 and I tried to print out some papers but it showed "Printer not responding" What should I do now? Thanks, George


George,

It sounds as though either the printer is not talking to the pc or the pc is not talking to the printer.
Unfortunately you do not say how you communicate with the pc. Is it wireless or via usb?
I would probably reinstall using the cd if its a wireless setup. Can you print via usb? If you can then do the above.

Repost if you are still stuck.

Is the Printer switched on? Do you have enough rights to use the printer wirelessly? Have you printed documents over your wireless connection previously?

I can't print anything on printer, and when I try, it says the printer is not responding. In Printers and Faxes, it says it is ready.


helaineliew,

Sure sounds like you have another printer as the default. Click on start. Then click on control panel. Click on printers and other stuff. See which printer is set as the default. If the Canon Pixma mx340 isn't change it. This should solve your problem.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank you.

My Canon MX340 is all set up wirelessly and has the blue light on. But when I try to print something from Word is shows that the printer is not responding. I know it prints because I used it to copy...


You MUST put in the password of the router in or it will never connect. Pressing a number key several times quickly should change the number to letters.

Hi, my canon mx340 keeps pausing during printing. any idea why?


The pause state which occurs intermediate to printing is mainly due to the cachins process/ Spooling/

To avoid this > go to Device properties of Printer. >Check for and option relating to print option >It would say "print directly to printer" or "Print only after complete buferring or sppooling" >Choose the option relating to "Print immediately" or "Dont wait for spool"
everything will be fine.
if you still encounter this problem then it is mainly due to heavy traffic on the shared network link. try to drop a leased link for thhe printer. The MFD(multi functionDevices) usualy require aheavy bandwidth for their operation.
