Trying to get an canon mx450 wireless printer to print. I may have pushed reset. I can get printer to say connected and computer to read green light,


Offering some ideas here: You have paper in it, all the doors are closed all the way and if laser printer, the cartridge is in all the way in. Still for some reason it may be off line. I confess I haven't used Microsoft windows for some time but can you go to printers from control panel and try a test page. Check the program you print from go to File--Print and see if the printer shown is the one that you are trying to print to (sometimes someone in office switches it), or printer is shown in print dialogue window when you hold control and press the P key.

Idle printer status


If your computer is USB connected make sure that the cable is connected and that the printer is powered up. If you are connected to the printer over your network through wifi or ethernet, make sure that each device (computer and printer) is connected.
If all of these are in order and the printer still shows offline, try re-installing the software that came with the printer. Sometimes the software needs to be re-installed due to corrupted files.

Desktop computer windows xp...sons laptop windows 7 ..wireless router....same internete signal...can his laptop find my printer..or do i need to run same cd on my sons laptop..to get it to install on...


Hi,

Yes it is possible, you have to install the pritner software on your Sons laptop.

1) For sharing, if you have a network printer connected to your router, then select the network option while installing the printer (If you would have given us the printer model and make we could have given step by step instructions).

2) If the printer is connected to your XP computer and you want to share it, share the printer from XP as mentioned in the steps below.

>> Open Printers and Faxes. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Printers and Faxes.
>> Right-click the printer you want to share, and then click Sharing.
>> On the Sharing tab, click Share this printer and then type a share name for the shared printer (e.g. MyPrinter), click on Apply and Ok. (as shown below)

Now goto the Windows 7 laptop and follow the steps as mentioned below,

>> Click Start >> Click on Devices and Printers >> Click on Add Printer (as shown below)

>> A new window will come up, click on Add a network printer (as shown below)

>> The laptop will search the network for the printer and display it on the list, click on the printer and click on next. The laptop will install the software required, do ensure the printer installation disc is in the laptop in case if Windows 7 wont have the driver it will take it from the disc.

Regards,
Shrey

Don't know where i plug in my printer


I think you are new with the PC or Printers, if not, I am sorry to underestimate you, not actually, Well, I was just trying make you concentrate, This printer is to be connected to the PC via USB port using USB cable, here's the pic representation : usb-printer.gif The Flat terminal is to be connected to the PC and the Smaller terminal is to be connected to the Printer. Don't worry, It fits with the corresponding ports. printer-usb-port.jpg USB port on the printer looks similar with the above shown image. 67411-usb.jpg You have to connect in a similar way as shown above to the PC.. Good luck...
