Did you install the canon drivers for the printer?

Windows vista ha a 'built in' version for this printer, and reports suggest they work better than the canon ones.

You will need to remove the device by doing the following steps:

Right click on My Computer -> click on Device Manager on the left of this window

Select your printer from the list that appears. Right click on this and select delete.

Restart your PC.

Yeah, I had the same problem with my Pixma MP830 and I had to pay $9.99 for the solution. :P I called Canon’s technical support for help even though I have an expired warrantee, so that’s why this little piece of information was so expensive. Oh well, at least I didn’t cry and I’m happy that it’s fixed. lol
So this is the problem, just like everyone keeps saying: THE USB CORD IS IN THE PHONE JACK AND THE FAX THINKS THAT THE PRINTER IS “ON HOOK.” The thing is, in the back of the printer you have a column of jacks, the one on top has an icon of a phone and the one on bottom has a picture of an “L” or laptop. TAKE YOUR USB CORD OUT OF EITHER ONE OF THOSE, NO MATTER WHICH ONE IT MAY BE. What you may not have figured out by now is that there is a THIRD jack that is nowhere near those two. If you’re facing the front of the printer to the far right of the backside of the machine, there is this deep cavity that has your third, miracle jack in it. It’s even more to the right than the two jacks I described previously and its icon looks like a sideways, three-pronged cactus. Plug the square end of the USB cord into that jack, and the In Use/Memory light should stop blinking, and your printer can stop acting like car because the annoying, turn-signal clicking should stop as well. :)
You’re problem was probably the same as mine, when you moved your printer, you neglected to find your instructions manual (because you probably neglected to put that in a safe placed too lol) and you forgot which jack the USB cord went into.
Well, I hope my help was clear and that my $9.99 can go towards helping all those with this same problem and that you get some use out of my own stupidity and what seems like a waste of my money. lol

I've had a similar problem trying to print to a printer that was not on my laptop but connected to the network through a desktop that was connected to the WiFi router and a cable modem.

If you can see the printer, maybe the driver is already installed.
In my experience, I had to log on as the administrator to print to the printer but I have windows 7 on all 4 of my computers.

I don't have xp anymore.

Maybe xp is the problem.

Pixma MP780 that will not print


Hi

If you have installed the driver and can print out a test page that means your computer is communicating with your printer.

Try to use wordpad and before you print, hit on ctrl-p then choose the pixma as your default printer. then try to print the document, you can use microsoft word as well for testing.

keep me updated

I can no longer print wirelessly on my Canon PIXMA MP780 with my PC's


Hello. If I am not mistaken, I believe that you have an issue with your computer driver. I completely understand, and strongly agree that Mac's are far superior than PC's. In that case, I would like to help you with the PC issue. One problem you might have is that your driver may have not been installed properly. Go ahead and finish that.
