Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

When I upgraded to Windows 7 yesterday, my Canon laser multifuncition printer doesn't print. It shows up as an "unknown device" in the device manager which lists it as a "FP-L170/MF350/L380/l398". Windows 7 2010 does recognize the fax, Microsoft XPS Document Writer, the Quicken PDF Printer, and a send to OneNote printer. Since Windows 7 states that all USB devices will be recognized as such and that no drivers need to be downloaded, how do I get it to recognize the printer mode of the Canon laser multifunction printer?

Don't believe everything they say as Windows 7 does have some bugs to be worked out. Take out the printer program completely and then download the program with windows 7. Windows update should fix that for you by plugging in the device after you take it out. You can download the correct driver from the canon site if needed.

WHY I CANT INSTALL CANON LBP6000 IN MY PC WIN 7 BIT 64


You may want to download the Canon Driver Installer first to help download the print driver. I checked the latest list that Canon is offering, I see the LBP5000 but nothing for the LBP6000. I have used a previous model's driver for other manufactures, I don't see why the 5000 driver wouldn't give you most, but not all the features the 6000 offers. You also may want to see if Canon offers a firmware upgrade which would make it compatible with Windows 8.1

I am having problems installing canon iP5200 with Windows 7


Did you upgrade the computer from Windows XP to Windows 7? If so, did you uninstall the driver before you did the upgrade? The old driver files may be causing the problem.

To fix, go to this link, and in the search box in the center of the screen type "windows 7" and click on the Search button. Then select the link "ERROR: Cannot communicate with the printer after upgrading to Windows 7". There will be step-by-step directions for resolving your problem.
