Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer will not print document coming from PC

My Pixma MP830 suddenly stopped recognizing documents coming from either of my two networked computers. It will scan and seems to be stuck in a scan mode even though it is set on "Copy". I know the computers are sending the info to the printer, but the printer is not seeing it. Ive tried it with the Network Discovery both on and off. I have tried turning the printer, computer off, and reconnecting USB connectors. I cannot find anything else in the Properties to try. Please help! I have many color documents I need to print to take to work and am very frustrated with the printer. Thanks.

On your WINDOWS desktop, left click the START button. LEFT click on CONTROL PANEL, then left click on PRINTERS. On the PRINTERS screen, check for an icon of your Canon printer. If it is there, right click on it, and from the drop-down menu, left click PROPERTIES. On the PROPERTIES page, check if SET AS DEFAULT is checked. If it is your default printer, left click on the PRINT TEST PAGE button and see if it prints. If not, try following the onscreen instructions to correct the problem. If your Canon printers icon does NOT qppear on the PRINTERS page, the driver is not there, Go to ,and left click on the DOWNLOADS tab. Follow the onscreen instructions and download and install the driver. You may have to do this on both computers, or set up one computer to SHARE the Canon with the other. Follow the INSTALL WIZARD'S instrictions, and you should then be able to print again.

Printer keeps printing same document so i can not delete it

You have to erase it from it's memory. If you have already tried to cancel it via your pc and it didn't work, try this: turn off the printer. Entirely, from the wall socket. Turn off your computer. Then turn them on again. Both the computer and your printer should erase the document from their memory, so it will stop the printing.
