A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Frequently, issues are caused simply by a break in the signal sent from PC to printer or vice versa. Unplugging and re-plugging the printer allows the small amount of on-board memory on the printer to be cleared, with the result that the PC recognizes the machine properly. Programs continuing to run in the background of the operating system (OS) can cause the signal to be lost. Rebooting the PC ends all programs that may be running and makes a 'clean' start, allowing the signal to be detected.

As long as i have my usb cable hooked up to my printer and laptop it works but when i disconnect the cord its offline.what should i do?


It may not be configured to the correct port.The port selected could have been the USB port that's why when you disconnect the USB cable printer goes offline and would not print wireless. Follow the steps below if you are using a WINDOWS computer: For windows XP :
  • Click on start then go to printers and faxes.
  • right-click on the default printer canon pixma mx340 series
  • go down to properties
  • click the ports tab
  • check to see which box is checked.If the usb port box is checked,that answers the reason why printer goes offline and would not print wireless when USB cable is disconnected.
  • In the list of ports ,look for tcp/ip with the correct ip (192 number) address of the computer.
  • when you find it,tick the box,click on apply then ok.
  • if you do not see it anywhere on the list ,you need install the software.
For win vista
  • click on start,in the search box key in printer then hit enter on the keyboard
  • right-click on the default printer canon pixma mx340 series
  • go down to properties
  • click the ports tab
  • check to see which box is checked.If the usb port box is checked,that answers the reason why printer goes offline and would not print wireless when USB cable is disconnected.
  • In the list of ports ,look for tcp/ip with the correct ip (192 number) address of the computer.
  • when you find it,tick the box,click on apply then ok.
  • if you do not see it anywhere on the list ,you need install the software.
For win 7
  • click on start,in the search box put in devices and printers and hit enter
  • right-click on the default printer canon pixma mx340 series
  • click on printer properties
  • check to see which box is checked.If the usb port box is checked,that answers the reason why printer goes offline and would not print wireless when USB cable is disconnected.
  • In the list of ports ,look for tcp/ip with the correct ip (192 number) address of the computer.
  • when you find it,tick the box,click on apply then ok.
  • if you do not see it anywhere on the list ,you need install the software.
Let me know if you need assistance in configuring wireless connection and installation.

How do i change the language bak to English? And how do i print from my macbook laptop onto the printer


TO CHANGE THE LANGUAGE:

From the printer control panel, press the 'Spanner' icon.

Press the right arrow button, and then press OK

Press OK again.

Press the arrow buttons until the language that you want appears on the display, and then press OK.
If you are sure, press the right arrow button, and then press OK to change the language.
To print from your macbook laptop you may have to install additional software onto your laptop from the installation CD. Insert the CD and wait for the 'Welcome' screen to appear. (Note if the 'Welcome' screen does not appear after a minute, then click the CD icon on the desktop). Double click 'Install' and follow the screen instructions.

Some additional notes that may apply to your machine(s):

If the printer is connected to a desktop computer through the rear USB port and you decide to connect a laptop computer to the printer through the Quick Connect laptop port, then the Quick Connect laptop port connection overrides the rear USB port connection. The active print jobs on the desktop computer may be cancelled. Pause or cancel active jobs on the desktop computer before switching between ports.

To summerise:

Pause or cancel active jobs on the desktop computer.

Connect a USB cable to the laptop computer and then to the Quick Connect laptop port on the front of the printer.

Warning-Potential Damage: Do not plug in or remove the USB cable from the Quick Connect laptop port while a memory device is being accessed by the printer.

If you have not yet installed the printer software on your laptop then install it now.

Hope this helps

Looking for printer software hp656c for my laptop windows 7 (32 bit)


Thats quite an old printer, it should work with a generic printer driver for basic text printing, otherwise try some of windows 7s built in HP injet drivers. I doubt you will find a specific windows 7 driver for this model, its out of support life

My dell printer won't print


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Samsung ML-4500 with IEEE 1284 to usb cable not working


Windows XP/VISTA (do not install the CD)
1) Plug the cable into the USB port on your computer.
2) A prompt that says "Found New Hardware" will appear. Windows will then install the USB printing support driver automatically. You do not need to install the driver from the CD.
3) Plug the cable into the printer.
4) If your printer is already installed, click on Start, then Printers & Faxes. Right click on the printer you are connecting to and click on Properties. Click on the Ports tab and check the ‘Virtual printer port for USB’ port. Click OK.
5) You should now be able to print.

With XP, the biggest clue is to FIRST plug the cable into the usb slot, THEN the other end of the cable into the printer.

Printing problem with Lj1020


I would suggest logging onto the companys web site and downloading the newest driver.
And see if there are any update locations for your printers software.
Sounds like a bad driver or printer software corruption.
Also check on your menus to see if there is a way to clear or reset the printer memory.
You most likely have some file corruption.
