My canon MP730 printer went offline after I tried printing an address on a custom sized envelop. A repair Technician remotely got it back on the ready mode but I now get the message that the printer is not...

This is rather "ancient" model as printers go, it come on the market in 2002. It is still available, this meant Canon done something ok with it...

You done everything what is available for home/small office user. I will try to help you solve this problem, but seem like motherboard on this printer is on the way out.

Please follow this procedure:

1. download and install ccleaner for all users, do not install yahoo or any other bar! I hate all bars with passion!
2. disconnect USB cable from your printer (or computer - whichever is easy)
3. uninstall all printer related programs and delete printer from printer folrder
4. switch off computer and wait 20sec
5. switch computer on and run it in safe mode (taping f8 during boot-up will allow you this selection) as an administrator
6. run ccleaner, as last run registry clean
7. restart computer in "normal" mode
8. install your freshly downloaded printer software and when ask, connect USB cable.

Simple removal of the printer and re-installation do not work as Windows have nasty habit of hiding old files adn re-use them even if you supply new ones.

If printer do not respond to this installation, to verify that this is a problem, try to install it on another computer. If it works on another computer, then you have something installed on this computer which prevent you from correct installation of the printer.

If that is the case - disconnect you rcomputer from network, disbale firewall and antivirus, then run ccleaner and clean everything what you do not need, go to tools and remove any program which you do not use or need, check your boot sector and disable all junk loading on the bootaup, be it any messanger, itunes, adobe or whatever installed itself there but it is not essential to run the computer. Run ccleaner again, then re-boot in safe mode and run ccleaner again, including registry.

Repeat steps 2 to 8 from above. but with disabled antivirus and firewall.

If your computer still will not see the printer, change usb port.

Hope this short advice will solve your problem, please let me know if it worked, canon unfortunately do not provide firmware flush options for home users.

My Epsom S20 printer takes ages to respond to Word

Are you using the correct driver for it?
to find the driver open printers and faxes right click the desired printer, go to properties.
Click on advanced tab and check the driver there. It should match the model of the printer.
If it does the driver may be corrupted.
The uninstall current driver( the install Cd that came with printer should have uninstall option there) then reinstall it again.
This should fix the problem.

Printer won't respond to demands

Hi cmiller59,

This is a quite common issue. Try this, un-install printer and printer software. Reinstall software first before you connect any cables. After reinstalling software power down your computer. Connect all cables associated with your printer. Power on your system, windows will detect new hardware and the wizard will ask you what you want to do. Place installation cd in the cd drive and in the hardware wizard choose have disk and click next. I hope this helps, if not, hit me back, we have other options.

Thanks for using

Sincerely, cyyyd7

Lexmark2350 printer/scanner

A simple wuestion first...You did remove the protective film off the cartridge contacts? Take the cartridge back out and have a look in the slot- does everything seem to be in order- no bent wire holders or snything and when you reinstall it does it fit snug? If every thing seems okay, Turn the printer off and unplug it for several minutes. plug it back in and turn it on

Is the problem solved?
