MULTIPASS C555 INKJET ONLY GIVES ME BLANK COPIES

An other method that might also work for you, is to clean the print head with some rubbing alcohol. Even though the cartridge is new, the print head might be in need of cleaning. It works for me 100% of the time no need to mess with drivers.

"mp service" applet won't start (for Canon Multipass) Nothing on the system has changed, but suddenly this morning I can't print - get messages that I need to start the "MP Service" under administrative...

You may have to install updated drivers from Canon:

The last time I did this they were for Windows XP SP2. Also, XP is now on SP3 and there have been many security patches lately.
Sometimes "MP Service" does not start, so you have to manually start it by going to ControlPanel, then AdministrativeTools, then Services, then MP Service. However, you seem to have done that.

Printer installation?

You will have to reload your printer. Plug the printer to your computer and reboot. The Plu and Play should recognize it. Then the Ad Hardware Wizard will pop up. Load the CD that came with the printer and the Wizard will allow you to load and configure the printer driver. Once the drivers are loaded you can print a test page. If it is a USB printer then load the drivers first, then plug your printer in and reboot.

Windows Vista

You can use the C555 as a printer only with Windows Vista if you use an emulation driver. That is, you tell the computer that it's printing to a different model printer (Canon BJC-4300), and the C555 will work if you put it in Printer mode. The other catch is that you must use a parallel port and cable for this to work.

Full instructions are here. Type "windows vista" in the Search window and click Search. Then click on the link "Does my product support Windows Vista?".
