Hi

If it is offline, please check all the following that make your printer off line.

1. Check the power supply cable if it is connected. Remove the power cable at the printer and then plug it back again. Check if it brings back to READY STATUS.

2. Check the USB or port connection if is properly connected from your computer to your printer. Remove all the connections and plug it back again.

3. Check the power button of the printer if it is turn on. Check the power light of the printer if turn on.

4. If you check all the cable connections, power connections and power light, Just set up again the printer once more and set it as default printer and print the test page.

I hope it will helps you solve your problem. Post comments if you need more help. Regards and thank you for using fixya.

Where is Canon printer service center in louisville KY?


Hello, Tanya -

I tried using the Canon Find A Service Location web page,
https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/service-repair/servicelocation?cm_sp=CSO-_-support/service-repair-_-Service-locations
but, it seems the search logic does not accept MP495 as a valid Canon printer model number. Do you mean the PIXMA MP495? If so . . . this is what came up when I entered PIXMA MP495 and a Louisville, Kentucky zip code:

While trying to find more information on the Canon MP495 printer, I came across information about the 5800 error code and the ink absorber being full, here:

Question:
HI an error 5800 came up on my canon printer mp495 that my ink absorber is full. How do i clean it? . . . [snip] I have the printer about 2yrs and i haven't updated software

Answer:
Unfortunately, there is no quick or easy fix here. This message indicates a hardware problem, specifically that that the internal "ink absorber system" is full. The ink absorber is a series of pads/tanks, which catch drips from the printhead when parked, and is also used for maintenance tasks like cleaning and purging.

Eventually this absorber fills up, and the printer shuts down operations, as continuing to operate it can result in ink overflowing the system, damaging your desk, flooring, etc

While it is sometimes possible to temporarily reset the counter, this is dangerous as the system will likely overflow. Cleaning/emptying/replacing the system is a difficult and messy process as well, best left to a qualified service technician. This service is generally not practical though - it's going to run you $150-250 for repairs, which just isn't worth it for an older printer. This is a 7 year old model, that was built for a service life of no more than 3 years. If you have reached the point that the absorber has filled, then other wear items like the printhead, feed rollers, etc are also going to be at the end of their lives and need service/replacement soon.

Given the costs and complexity of fixing this issue, you'd be better off replacing the printer. You can get a brand new and better machine, with current technology and a fresh warranty, for about $80, which makes more sense than investing in the older machine.

I can recommend replacement options for you if you'd like, or if you'd prefer to try having it serviced or working on it yourself, I can advise further on those options. Replacement would be your best bet though, economically speaking.
+++

From other information I found, it appears the Canon PIXMA MP495 came out in mid-2010. Do you recall when you purchased your printer? As the long explanation I posted above states, the estimated service life of the PIXMA MP495 was no more than 3 years.

So, your only option seems to be to purchase a new printer.

Sorry.

Since you've already performed a Factory Reset, which ought to take care of anything along the lines of corrupted system files, you might want to double-check that you have the correct drivers. Canon Support Drivers PIXMA MP495
Once you have the correct drivers, try doing a factory reset on your printer while it is not connected to your computer. Once complete, try using the USB cable that came with your printer to connect it to your laptop and install the drivers.
There is the possibility that your printer, even after a factory reset, is trying to automatically use WiFi for its connection to your laptop. Assuming you're using DHCP and not static IP addresses, try giving your printer a static IP address, as it may be fighting with some other LAN device for a particular IP address.
If it turns out you do have the correct drivers and you are using WiFi for the laptop to printer connection, I would suspect something is wrong with the WiFi connection on your printer's side or in your router's configuration. Make sure you have the printer's MAC address in the appropriate table in your router's filtering configuration, if you're running MAC address filtering.

Quikshiptoner is a good site for ink and toner that I generally use. It has black and color ink for the MP495. I'd just go there and search for the printer you need and it should come up with the correct ink / toner that you need.
