CAN NOT CONNECT TO MY PRINTER TO PRINT DOCUMENTS


First check if the printer is already installed into your computer.
Start>Control Panel>Printers and Faxes, then check if the printer was installed. e.g. Canon Pixma MG5270

If not please do the following:
1. Check if your printer is connected to the computer via USB, and check if you properly plugged in the power supply.
2. Look for the software or installer of your printer. Insert the CD to the CD-Rom and Install it until the setup completes.
3. After the installation of the printer, click Start>Control Panel>Printers and Faxes, then check if the printer was installed. e.g. Canon Pixma MG5270
4. Then try to print out some document. Just click File>Print and choose your Printer e.g.(Canon Pixma MG5270) then click the O.K. button to print the document.

I cannot print from my computer. There seems to be printing locked in my printer .this is blocking me from printing any documents from on line


Until you are part of domain network or nothing new installed related to firewall printing might not be blocked. You can check for 2 things to make sure software side is not of problem
1. Printer driver is installed ( to check go to start->settings->printer and faxes and see if the printer driver is listing there or not, if it is there make sure that one is your default printer)
2. Print spooler service is running or not. ( If you are not able to find any drivers in printer and faxes, then for sure you print spooler service is not running, to start print spooler click on start->go to run-> type "services.msc" and hit enter, on the right side of service window search for print spooler service, double click and click on start to start the spooler service.

If above doesnt solve the problem, check followings

1.Make sure all cables are connected proper and there are no loose ends on both side, printer and computer side.
2. Make sure there are no errors on printer ( led's indicating error message)
3. If in network, make sure proper IP address and proper driver is installed and you are able to reach the ip address by pinging. ( goto run->type cmd>hit enter> type ping followed by ip address, it should generate reply )

Can't print even i just try another one


hmmmm it seems like your cable might be the problem. but it will also do that if you havent installed the necessary software for that type of printer. if you are running a usb cable then plug it in to the back of your computer not the front. if you plug it in to the front it will always say that.

How to install your printer software on your computer

So you have just bought a new printer and you're raring to go and print just about anything you can find in your computer. Before you amass all available pieces of paper, though, you should first install the printer software. This way, the printing process becomes smooth and easy. The good news is, most software these days will facilitate the installation on its own with just a few clicks from your end.
Here are a few quick steps in order to install your printer software on your computer:
Step 1: Read the installation manual
Before anything else, read the installation manual carefully. This is important. Take note of special instructions like if you need to uninstall a previous version of the software already in your computer or if you need to tweak some settings like turn your virus scanner off.
Step 2: Insert disk
Insert the disk or any media where the printer software is stored to the corresponding drive. You can hear faint whirring and buzzing sounds - this means the drive is reading the disk. Usually, a new window will pop up, displaying all the files read in the disk. Do you see a "readme.txt" or "readme.doc" file? Open that and read the contents of the file. There are usually important pieces of data or reminders in that file pertaining to your printer software. When you're done, look for a certain file that has a icon different from others and a ".exe" extension. This is the executable file. Click on it.
On the other hand, in case the window doesn't pop up, go to My Computer, click on the appropriate drive where your printer software CD is and look for the ".exe" file. Run that file by clicking on it.
Step 3: Installation proper
Once the executable file is run, the installation process will automatically begin. Get the box which came with your printer software CD and take note of the registration code or key. You might need to enter this data later during the installation process or when you need to reinstall the software all over again!
In the course of installation, you will be asked as to which folder you want to save all information related to the printer software, what type of installation (typical, custom or minimum) and which icon to use. It is highly suggested that you stick with defaults. Tweak the settings later based on your preference. What's important is that you install the software properly first.
Step 4: Reboot
More often than not, before you can fully use a newly installed program, you need to reboot your computer first. After rebooting, run your printer software and check if everything's working as they should.
So there. These are the steps that you need to do in order for you to install printer software on your computer. Just remember to do the necessary precautions like scan the software every now and then to make sure that things don't go haywire. Happy printing!

Software installed for printer but computer not recognising printer when plugged in via usb


Some USB ports are specifically configured to the printer when it was installed in that USB port. When you try to print, in the Print menu, make sure that Name of the printer is your specified printer. you may have installed other printers before.
