The bad news first... Vista hates and will not drive cannon products.
The other bad news... Cannon went out of the printer business and never wrote a vista driver.
Now some more bad news... vista is not really as fully developed as the XP os and don't really know if it will ever be, it's pretty, but it's one problem after another.
The solution is either buy new printer/scanner or revert Ur system to an XP os. This is the sort if issue that windows went back to selling and supporting XP.
This is a very traveled road!

Cannon printer offline


Hi. You haven't said what operating system you're using or wether or not this is a recent thing. However if you are using Windows XP or Vista you can go to control panel, printers and scanners, under XP, or printers and other hardware under Vista, right click your printer and see if there is a check/tick against use printer offline. If there is uncheck it and see if that works.

I hope that helps but without anything to go on its only a guess. Good luck

Need to download windows vista to install my hp psc 1410 all-in-one printer-scanner-copier to my new computer.


why??? If your computer is New it should have VISTA on it, or Windows XP, which is compatible with all printer scanner types. All you need to do is use the installation disk you got from the all- in -one-printer-scanner-copier and insert it into the disk drive and let it load up and follow instructions. if you do NOT have the disk--go to the website of the maker of the all-in-one and download the thing from there.

Purchased a new HP computer with a Vista operating system- My Cannon Multipass F30 printer is not compatible with Vista and cannot locate a driver- is one available ?


Not that I am aware of. There are a number of products that are not Vista compatable. Your choice is to get a new MFP, or downgrade your PC to XP.
