Can I connect my canon mp240 printer by wireless


The Canon Pixma MP240 canot be connected to a router wirelessly. You could buy a USB printer hub which would allow you to connect your printer to a wireless router. Basically, the printer would connect to the hub over USB, the hub would connect to your router over the netowrk cable, and this would allow you to connect to the printer wirelessly.

Printer says "printer is currently


The printer is connected to the rest of your computer with connecting hardware. If the connecting hardware such as connecting cords or connecting pins are damaged or not secure, then printer would be offline. Users facing the printer offline issue are recommended to check the connecting hardware and if the connecting hardware is found damaged, they would have to be repaired to solve the issues.

I keep getting ''Printer connection failed'' message


Hi,

It is seen that if there are any issues with the printer drivers, issues like connection failure may occur. There are chances of drivers being outdated and corrupt. In such situations, you have to update the drivers. If there is any yellow exclamation mark next to printer driver, You need to replace that corrupted driver with the correct one. Before the installation, you also need to check for compatibility. Sometimes, incompatibility would cause issues like printer connection failed, etc.

Get more information and help to fix Printer Connection Failed . Hope this information helps you.

Printer 6540


First of all u need to assemble the printer and need to ensure that the printer has a steady green light on Power..
If any light blinks it means there is some problem with the printer..
To connect the printer with your Laptop u need an USB cable which has a rectangular connector at one end wich will be connected to the Laptop's USB Slot and the other end of that cable will have almost square connector wich will be connected to the printer...
Before connecting the printer U need to install the Software on the Laptop and connect the printer when system prompts..
remember the printer should be powered on while connecting to the system..
