Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000R InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Can't print over wireless

I think the wireless card or whatever it is in the printer is broken; can't communicate over wireless (USB is fine); when I tried to (re) set up and detect the printer using the Mac address, it couldn't find it. Am I hosed, or is there a way to diagnose further? Thanks

    Thanks. I had done all the configuration using BJ network tool; in the end, it was NOT the printer, but my wireless network. Thanks for the post.

    Error 306 reports Communications error between iP4000R and IMac. Have tried the usual reset checks.


    Thanks

    Yup, I'm having the same problem. The printer is able to be seen in the BJ Network Tool when connected with USB. Then I check all the network settings/password/etc and send them to the printer. But when I disconnect the USB, the printer is lost and cannot be seen in the BJ Network Tool.



    I've done a hard reset on my router (an Apple Airport Extreme) and double-checked all the settings. Now I'm completely out of ideas... Please help!



    Thank you!

Not sure if you tried this but you need to use USB and the BJ network tool to first configure the wireless. Using the working USB connection configure the printer to use wireless but not ethernet, set the SSID and encryption. Then update that to the printer and try pinging it.

Printer unable to communicate with computer.


Are you using the wireless network printer function or is the printer connected by a USB cable? If you are using the wireless network, launch the printer's Wireless Setup Utility and run through it. (Check for problems with IP, signal strength etc.)

For USB, try resetting the printer (unplug it from the wall for 10 seconds). Check that the computer is looking for the printer on the correct port. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel. Double click on the Printers folder and right click on your Lexmark printer. Choose Properties then click on the Ports tab. Check that one of the USB port options is checked. (If you have a newer OS, Start > Devices and Printers and then right click on the printer.) Also try a new USB cable and a different USB port. If you have a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.

I hope this helps.

Going from USB to PC card


It may not be compatible with either software version or it's possible the version of "driver installer" is only compatible with the USB, If you'd go into device manager on your PC and make sure you see drivers for the modem,network adapter,ports and usbs for the 860 you should be able to set up a dial up connection. This will help you do that. https://www.wireless.att.com/support/tutorials.do?tutorialPage=page2&universe=att&deviceId=8330&tutorialsCategory=Connection+Methods You also may want to take a look at this article https://www.wireless.att.com/support/tutorials.do?tutorialPage=page2&universe=att&deviceId=8330&tutorialsCategory=Getting+Started&tutorialId=214910
