Question about Canon PIXMA MX340 Wireless Office All-in-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My Canon Pixma MX340 all-in-one printer is not responding. Everytime I try to print something it says printer is not responding. It is my default printer and I've already tried going to devices and hardware and troubleshooting it. The troubleshoot says that there is a print job in the queue that is preventing other print jobs from printing so I cleared my queue. After I do that it says that the printer is ready, however when I try printing again I get the same message! How do I fix this?

Uninstall and reinstall the software. Corrupted software can cause all sorts of weird issues.

SOURCE: printer will not cancel print job

Sounds like the printer spool is frozen.

Assuming you're using WinXP and logged in as an administrator (or with admin permissions)

START
Control Panel
Administrative Tools
Services

Locate the "Print Spooler"
Right click on this and choose "restart"

This will restart the print queue and will probably try to print the job again or delete it properly. If it tries to restart, just right click on the printer job and choose cancel again..

You may need to repeat but that should at least get you back up and running with other print jobs again.

SOURCE: job in queue

Let me exaplin the cause why the jobs get stuck in queue: When ever we try to print there is a windows service called print spooler that manages the print jobs in queue. We can clear the jobs in queue by just disconnecting the usb cable and restarting the print spooler service. Here are the steps to restart the print spooler : 1.Click on start 2.Then click on Run 3.In the Run box type " net stop spooler " Then press enter Note: Type the text with out inverted cotes in the run box this will stop the print spooler service Next we have to restart the print spooler 1.Click on start 2.Then click on Run 3In the Run box type " net start spooler " and press enter Once done reconnect the usb cable and check for the jobs in queue. If there are no jobs in queue you can set the print directly settings to avoid this issue in future. Just open the printer and faxes folder and right click on the printer icon and select properties and then click on the advance tab and under it select the option print directly to printer and click on apply and Ok to save the settings. Once done try to print this should resolve the issue.. Wish u success..

The answer to our problem ended up being a firmware upgrade to the Canon iR7095. I would look into that as your possible solution.

I can't print anything on printer, and when I try, it says the printer is not responding. In Printers and Faxes, it says it is ready.


helaineliew,

Sure sounds like you have another printer as the default. Click on start. Then click on control panel. Click on printers and other stuff. See which printer is set as the default. If the Canon Pixma mx340 isn't change it. This should solve your problem.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank you.

You MUST put in the password of the router in or it will never connect. Pressing a number key several times quickly should change the number to letters.
