CANON PIXMA MX310: printer not responding.


If you go to Start, Printers and Faxes, if it says "Offline", right-click the printer and choose "Use Printer Online." If it says Ready, you should be good to go.

If however there is a problem yet, double-click the Printer there and see if any jobs are in the print queue. You can remove them all buy Right-Clicking and choosing "Cancel All Documents" then try printing a test page. Right-click the printer, go to properties and click "Print Test Page."

If you still have problems, follow up on your question.

My hp printer 3535 wont printer.it says the files are ready.The printer wont print them.


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please check that your printer has paper, has no paper jams and is currently set on the ‘use printer online’ settings by right clicking property and then setting it from there. Also please check that you have selected the correct default printer and drivers in the printer options. If there is any paper jams clear it. You can also check the few things like---
Please check that both ends of the cable which connects the printer to the computer are connected properly. To print a test page right click on printer properties and then click the 'Print Test Page' button and see if you get a test page printed properly. If you do, this indicates that the printer is properly connected to the computer and the computer has the drivers installed.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Connecting USB cannon mp610 printer to computer


You need USB A-B cable and use the USB jack lying on the back-right corner of the printer (not the front one - that is for connecting cameras).

Recognizes printer, won't print


What i'm getting at is if the printer was not used for a long time the cartridges may have dried out.

Every printer has a unique print driver on computer, and each and every printer uses a different one, so there goes it cant be my computer. The way to tell if it is a printer or computer problem on your machine is to Turn off, unplug from computer, ensure your printer has paper, power it on, wait for ready/online lamp, then press the "go" button 5 times super FAST. Status page should print if it does, then your problem is in fact the computer or the print driver not installed correctly on your computer, as I suspect may be the case.

Post back once you have verified if you have a printer or a computer problem.
