Question about Canon PIXMA MP180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

3 Answers

Canon MP180 printer/scanner

A few months ago my printer started to give me this message "USB device not recognized. One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it." This happened just out of the blue. I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it numerous times to no avail. Finally when I had all but given up, I was successful and the thing has run properly since then.

I contacted Canon but by the time they did get back to me, the problem was solved. They didn't really offer any suggestions anyway.

All of a sudden it is happening again however, I have not been succesful in getting reinstallations to work. I have tried using the CD that came with the machine and I haev also downloaded from Canon's website. I still get the message "USB device not recognized. One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it."

Of course I can't scan and I can't print. I am by no means an expert but I am not a novice with the computer but this has me bamboozled (and very very **********!!!).

Help.

Thanking you in advance.

    The two soloutions were not helpful. In fact I wonder how the individual who posted, not just once but twice, thought that posting "how to print" was even relevant to my difficulty.



    I am sorry if I sound nasty, I don't mean to be. I came here searching for an answer or at least some help.

I am having the exact same problem and have tried the same fixes you have. I even bought a new usb cable and that didn't help either. Have you had any success since the post?

    I fixed my problem!!!! I threw the printer in the dumpster, forcefully I might add, and brought home an identical printer from the office and hooked it up. It worked without as much as a hiccup. I'll never buy another Canon printer.

Try and scan something again, but with the lid up just a little. I am betting that the light for the scanner is not working. Call Canon to find out if your unit is still under Warrany if that is the case. They will be help you fix it, or replace the scanner, depending on the Manufacture's warranty policy.

Try disconnecting unit from USB port, restart computer, and reinstall unit. Might try another USB port on computer. It also may be a bad printer/scanner! Try it on another computer.
