Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Refuses to print

When trying to print, it refuses saying "error number 300"It's not opening the printer connection, even though everything is properly connected. I've already had that problem before, but by switching off the printer and restarting it, it worked. Now this trick does not do it anymore!

    I'm using a iMAC OSX v.10.5.2.  I dragged all the Canon information to the trash.   I went into Apple system preferences, print and fax, and dragged the printer to the trash.  I emptied the trash.  Restarted. Inserted the Pixma CD and used the  "easy install".  Put the usb cable into the back of the computer. It now prints.  I also have a Time Capsule but it will not print from it, cable has to be into computer.  To scan I plug it into the Time Capsule.

Disconnect and switch off printer from pc's usb port. Go to add/remove programmes and uninstall printer software and drivers. Go to printer and faxes folder or go through control panel and ensure the pixma printer is deleted, if not right click and delete. Re-start pc and install drivers from your printers cd rom and re connect printer when prompted and not before (if no prompt when software finishes connect printer). Your pc should then idenitify your printer and auto install drivers. If the same error occurs, it's more than likely a hardware failure, and requires replacing.

Hi Daniel, I just had a quick look and other people here have posted problems regarding error code 300 on the MX850. Take a look here when you get a minute to see if any of the solutions posted help you out at all. It's a long shot as this link is for Apple users but it might point you in a direction you hadn't yet tried. All the best.

My HP470 OFFICEJET refuses to print

Hi there,
I did manage to solve the problem in the end.  As it seemed to be a communication problem, I restarted my Mac (as opposed to switching off the printer and on again) and it worked!!
Might need you some time in the future though....
Thanks, S Walsh

Printer paused-unable to read

HI there,

1. First, clean your printer. Get some spray-n-wipe cleaner and a clean cloth and clean the entire inside of the printer. Also ensure your paper isn't dirty. Now print a test page. Does the symptom persist?
2. Remove all jammed paper. Check the paper tray first. Look closely at the paper rollers nearest where the paper exits the printer; this is a common source of jams. If you’re trying to print labels, they will often jam just before exiting the printer.
3. Try to print a test page. Does the printer still jam? If you can find no source of the jamming, check the printer's message display window and refer to your user’s manual to look up the printer error code.

Ink cartridge (not) installed properly

For the Canon iP1800 printer are you sure you're using the 30 for black and 31 for color?

And make sure they "click" when installed. That should confirm that they're nice and tight in their ink compartments.

Besides that, maybe reinstalling the printer drivers could do something?
