Question about Canon PIXMA MP470 All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

Vista won't recognize my Canon MP470 Printer

I've installed all the drivers and software from my support disc that came with the printer. Tried 2 different USB Cables but my laptop with Vista still won't recognize the printer. I had the same problem with an HP printer of similar function. I believe I have all the right drivers and software. A person who sold it to me said to make sure my firewalls are turned off and I did this. They also mentioned that anti-virus software can cause problems. Anyway, how can I get Vista on my laptop to recognize this printer. Greatly appreciate any help you can give. Thanks, Mike

My MP470 worked perfectly yesterday and this morning it won't print. I send the command and it thinks for a minute and then it says "job stopped." I've tried rebooting everything and it...


This type of problem is often caused because recently installed software is incompatable with your current software. If you have installed any software since the printer last worked, try uninstalling this software first (this usually works).

If this does not solve the problem, or you have not installed any new software first run your antivirus/antispyware programs. Make sure that you disconnect your computer from the internet before running antivirus.

If you are still having problems, then preform a system restore. To do this on XP follow these steps:
  • Start
  • All Programs
  • Accessories
  • System Tools
  • System Restore

Hope these solutions help.

Vista recognizes printer, but nothing happens after job queues


Turns out it was a bad USB 2.0 cable. Finally tried the most simple fix, last, and of course, that's what worked. Just had to replace the cable.
