Follow these steps:
1. Unplug the printer.
2. Uninstall the driver.
3. Re-boot your computer.
4. Then reinstall (from the CD if you still have it)
5. Follow install instructions with printer.
6. Test the printer/scanner/etc.
7. If this doesn't work... go to canon's website and download the most current driver for the printer. then redo these steps using the downloaded driver for step 4.

If this doesn't work, return the printer if you still can.

Cable connectivity with my laptop through a "parallel to usb cable". My laptop has no parallel port but only usb ports.


make sure you follow this step :
1. install driver USB to Paralel port (LPT1) before the cable connected to PC
2. After the driver installed, install the cable - and it supposed to be detected
3. the last think u have to do is install the scanner/printer driver

if it is not work, i guess the problem is on the USB to paralel adapter, or the driver not installed correctly
