My canon mg5220 printer is not printing anything. It just says error when the pop screen pops up. It doesn't give me an error code.


Hi Savannah,
Try deleting the printer entry completely and add it from scratch.

Here's how:
  • Go to System Preferences
  • Print & Fax.
  • Select the printer you want to remove,
  • Click the - (minus) button at the bottom of the panel.
  • Reboot the system.
  • Run Software Update to check for the latest third-party printer software and updates.
  • Make sure the printer is powered on, has paper, and doesn't have any issues such as a paper jam or low ink.
  • Adding, managing, or removing print queues may require an administrator account name and password--make sure you know one for your Mac.

How to add a printer

To add a USB printer
Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party printers, so simply connect a USB printer and the print queue will be automatically created. If you do not see your printer in the "Printer:" pop-up menu after connecting it, go to the "To add a printer via the Print & Fax preference pane" section below.

To add "Nearby Printers"
With Mac OS X v10.6 you can quickly add a "Nearby Printer"--a nearby printer is a printer connected to the USB port on a Time Capsule or AirPort base station, a network capable printer that supports Bonjour, or a printer being shared by another Mac. Snow Leopard uses Bonjour technology to find nearby printers.
To add a Nearby Printer, all you have to do is select the Nearby printer you want from the "Printer:" pop-up menu:
7d955333-f928-4e87-9d2a-9a1442c03a9a.jpg
Snow Leopard will automatically create the Print Queue.

To add a printer via the Print & Fax preferences pane
Control-click the System Preferences icon in your Dock and choose "Print & Fax" from the Dock menu. If the Print & Fax lock icon appears locked, click the lock icon and enter an administrator name and password when prompted. Click the + (plus) icon below the Printers pane on the left to open the Add Printer application.

From the Add Printer toolbar you have these default tools:
  1. Default - Used to get a list of all printers that your Mac can see via USB, Bonjour, and so forth. Tip: If you have a long list of printers, use the search field to find the printer you are looking for. Just click the printer in the list that you would like to add and Snow Leopard will add the printer driver for you.
    • Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party printers. If an additional or updated printer software is available, Software Update will offer it to you. If you do not see your printer listed in the "Print Using:" pop-up menu or a Generic printer driver is selected, then the printing software may not be available from Apple. For more information about supported printers see this article. You can also visit the printer vendor's website for printer software, or contact them for technical support.
    • Once the driver is set, click the "Add" button to create your Print Queue.
  2. Fax - Used to add a queue for the Fax device connected to your Mac.
  3. IP - Used to add your printer network printers that don't use Bonjour or are on a different network subnet from your computer. Printers that support the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP), Line Printer Daemon (LPD), and HP Jetdirect (Socket) can be added in this manner. See your printer's manual or support documentation for information about how to setup the printer to use an IP-based printing protocol.
  4. Windows- Used to add your printer being shared via the Windows printer sharing protocol (CIFS). Tip: See Mac 101: File Sharing for details about how to add your Mac to a Windows Workgroup. This is often needed to see Windows printer shares.

Note: Any applications that are open before you add a printer will need to be quit and re-opened, in order to see all the features of the new printer.

I can't connect the printer with my laptop. The printer is connected to my main computer and I'm trying to get my laptop to recognize the printer.


You will need to add this printer as a network printer using the main computer as the server. This is easily done, but is different for each operating system.
winXP= start>settings>printers and Faxes>add a printer> add network printer (next will search for printer)
- sometimes you must share the main computer by opening windows explorer and right clicking on the c: and select sharing and follow the screen
- Hope this helps, send more info if you need more help

Already installed driver from downloading online. cannot find driver printer in the devices and printer option of the control panel. cannot find driver when i started printing...


If you have not previously installed your printer or you did an uninstall before downloading the new driver, you now need to add the printer using the new driver.

In Windows 7, click on Devices and Printers.

At the top of the window you will see Add a device and Add a printer

Click on Add a printer.

Choose either Add a local printer or Add network, wireless or Bluetooth printer.

Follow through the choices and if the install program is not able to find the dowloaded driver, point to the location where your driver was downloaded. If you did not make note of the location you could run a search or download a second time making sure you save the driver to a location you can remember. You can then say Have Disk when asked and then browse to the location you saved the printer driver on your computer

If you have the correct driver for your printer and operating system the printer should complete installation

How do I set it up for wireless


Install a printer on a home network The most common way to install a printer on a home network is to install it as a stand-alone device on the network, and then add a connection to the printer on each computer that is on the network.
If you're not sure what type of network printer to install, decide if you want to:
  • Use a wireless printer. These printers use a built-in wireless card and plug into a power source, not your network or computer. After you turn on the printer, you need to refer to the information that came with the printer to set up a wireless connection to each computer on a home network. Security options for wireless printing are determined by each printer manufacturer.
  • Connect a printer directly to the network. To do this, you need to plug in the printer to your network hub or router. How to install these printers depends on whether the printer and your network device use an Ethernet, universal serial bus (USB), or another type of connection. You also need to refer to any installation information or tools provided by the printer manufacturer.
  • Connect more than one printer directly to the network. To do this, your hub or router must be able to support more than one printer connection.

  2. On the toolbar, click Add a printer.
  3. In the Add Printer Wizard, select Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer, and then follow the steps in the wizard.

Need to reinstall print 6988


If you're on XP, download HP Deskjet Basic Feature Software/Driver and then install this software.

Next, go to the "Printers and Faxes" part of the XP control panel and add the printer. Unless the printer has its own server (very unlikely for home use), then even if it is installed on a wired or wireless network, you need to add it as a local printer (again this should be done even if you have it connected to your local network), then add the printer. You may need to add a new port for the networked printer.

I hope this helps.

I have a new computer and need to add my printer, but I no longer have the CD. How can I add the printer?


Drivers if needed can be downloaded from HP's Website. Note if you have Vista - no drivers are needed, just power on the printer and plug in the USB cable.
