Make sure the ink cartridge is properly installed. Or this is probably common problem with Cannon ink cartridge, replacing the cartridge will solve the problem, but you need check it first under maintenance on Control Panel.

How can i install canon PIXMA iP1200 Photo Printer on my Desk Top?

  1. Power on your PC
  2. Power on your printer
  3. Attach the USB cable to the printer
  4. Plug the other end of the USB cable into your PC

The Operating System (Windows XP, Windows 7, etc.) should automatically detect and install the necessary drivers for your printer.

If this is not the case, you will need the driver installation media from the manufacturer or you will need to download the appropriate driver from the Internet.

My printer doesn't print the right color. it prints more likely red and i cant print any color but red. when i tried to print dark blue the result would be violet. what should i do?

If the printer was interuppted or the ink cartridge was moved off when the set was in printing , some errors can happen.
So we shall try to remove the printer from the PC and uninstall the software before it is reinstalled and then the printer is plugged into to be detected and harware installed.
Now the printer will be linked well and you must try to take a test print. If however there is the problem coming back, I feel the printer harware has some issues and might need attention.
I hope the inks are full and they are of the correct type.
Hope this helps . Good day

I have a canon iP1200 printer but I don't have the disc to install it to my laptop what shall i do?

some usb printers have their drivers in them so that when connected to pc windows will automatically detect the printer and install its driver.
in cases your os doesn't detect your printer.. just search the internet for "iP1200 driver", it is also available at cannon official site, go to download section

Will not print

you need to reinstall the driver to get this printer up and running again, try to find the cd from your printer and reinstall, or donload the recent driver on the web, make sure you select the right OS platform, it is usually easy to follow step by step procedure.

it is not automatic though when you make system recovery, it only repairs your pc not the external peripheral

hope this helps
