Hi, I will assume that you are installing the Canon MX 310 to a Windows machine. Before going thru the install procedure, please check that you have USB enabled by right click on My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Manager, and at the very bottom USB Controllers should be there with no red or yellow markings. If they are not there, please restart your machine, press del or whatever it is to enter CMOS/BIOS setup and verify that the USB ports are enabled. In some instances, it may take some time before the PC recognizes the USB device such as your printer. You really have to give it time or one trick is to Cancel the printer port detection and just go ahead with the installation. When all is installed and finished, you can change the properties of the printer to USB port from the Parallel/LPT1 port. Another is to plug the printer straight in to the USB port (or try all the other USB ports) without installing it first. Allow/let Windows to autodetect and auto install. Put in the CD only when Windows does not know where the drivers/installers are located. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Izaakzakei cant get my printer connected to my laptop i have downloaded the driver but its still not working


Hello,

You need to install the softeware first with the printer unplugged from the computer!

Insert your softeware disk and restart your computer, if computer doesn't detect new software when it is rebooting....than go into your control panel...click on install new software.

Once that is installed, you'll need to restart again with the printer hooked up this time.

Again, if computer doesn't detect new hardware, go into control panel, click on install new printer, you will have to select the make and model, or if you have the disk, select have disk, then next...you computer should install the hardware for you printer.

After installed, restart again...to see if if new software and hardware is detected and is being installed.

Go to your printers, from your control panel, and see if your printer is there, if not select, add new printer, it will take you through the process from there. Make sure you select this to be your default printer!

Happy printing!

Printer is showing error 0xc18a0206


Pinters require compartiblity with computers especially with older devices that relied on disk program installations. Newer printers are plug and play least least requirng software installations by the computer user to attain an experience. Once connecting an older printer to a newer computer that least detects an interpretation, a missing code is prodced especially when no sotfware compartibilty is available.

I bought the HP Deskjet 5650, but I'm not sure how to install it to my home computer.


First find the installation disk that came with your printer in the box. Install the software by placing the disk in your CDROM of your computer and then follow the instructions on the screen. when the software has finished installing, connect your printer to the computer with your USB cord and the computer will automatically do the rest.

Some operating systems already have the driver for your printer and the software is not necessary. To check and see if your computers operating system already has the necessary drivers, just connect your printer via your usb cord. Your computer will recognize the printer once the cord is connected and you will see a pop up message around the right hand corner of the monitor screen that says "new equipment detected" and the computer will do the rest.

Good luck!

Can you give me steps on how to connect to my computer


I am assuming that this printer can be connected via usb. Make sure your computer is on, then put in your software disc, it will automatically play. Click Install and follow the prompts. It will tell you when to plug in your printer (it should connect to the usb port in the back of the computer).

Lexmark does not distribute replacement install disk for all models.

Contact Lexmark here, to see if the disk for your printer is available.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
Note:some printer does not work on Vista, if you do not find any driver download for Vista on your model page, that means your model is not Vista compatible.

Need help hooking up my canon MP 240 tp my pc.My pc detectsthe printer then says no printer detected.


You need to install your printer first.

If you already have installed your printer, do this:

disconnect printer from computer
cancel documents in queue
if using a straight USB connection, delete all instances of printer. else remove duplicate printer icons.
reboot & reconnect printer (swap cables if not detected)

If you don't have installed your printer do this:

Get your printer software from: www.canon.com

USB printers (Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP only)
  1. Make sure that the USB cable is unplugged from your computer and your printer. USB devices work differently from older devices and usually need to have the drivers installed before you connect the device.

  2. If you have an installation disk, insert it into the drive. If there is an installer provided, it should run or be executed here. Follow its instructions, and it should take care of installing your printer in a few moments.

  3. If you don't have an installation program, plug the USB cable into your computer and your printer. This should trigger the Add New Hardware Wizard.

  4. Click Next, and then select Search for the best driver for your device. Click Next.

  5. Uncheck all options except Specify a Location. Click Browse. Browse to the disk, CD, or directory where your printer drivers are located. Click OK, and then click Next twice. Note: You can download some drivers from the web. Consult the web site of your printer's manufacturer, or see Where can I find driver updates for my Windows computer?
  6. When all the files are copied, click Finish.

  7. Turn on your printer. Windows should detect the printer's presence and finish the installation. If the option to print a test page is offered, do so. This will confirm the installation. Click Finish.
