Operator error. Press printer's RESUME button.

I tried all the reset codes and so forth you might find on other otherwise useful forums, and i have successfully modded 5 of these to print on DVDs, but this "operator error" and five yellow flashing lights was a tough nut to crack. I was about to give up and toss it when I tried one more thing and it works!biggrin.gif

With the cartridges removed and the printhead carrier in the central position, press the empty printhead's back gently but firmly about a dozen times back against the printhead carrier, pushing it in toward the rear of the printer. I think this may help improve a bad contact between the half a dozen or so rows of little metal contacts on the printhead and their corresponding protruding little metal pins on the printhead carrier. It feels a little spongy (you can feel some give) as you push it in toward the rear of the printer and it gently springs back forward.

This solved it for me. I thought I'd share my idea and successful solution, and I hope it helps you, too.

Canon pixma mp499 is offline how do I fix it?

Make sure that it's powered on. If it is, then it sounds like it's not on your network. Run the setup program and enter your wifi network information into it, so that it gets on your network. If you've already done that, try power cycling the printer. I have to do that with my HP wifi printer every once in a while. When it goes to sleep it drops the connection.

How can i install my printer without a cd

Hi

please follow steps to setup your printer

Install a printer driver locally Installing a printer driver is a Windows function, not a PowerPoint one. Before installing a printer driver, quit PowerPoint and your other programs.

Read over the installation instructions that came with your printer. When in doubt, follow the instructions there rather than the ones below.

  • Click Start, Settings, Control Panel.
  • Double-click "Printers & Faxes"
  • Double-click "Add Printer" to start the Add Printer Wizard

addprinter_1.gif
The Add Printer Wizard Welcome screen
  • Click Next

addprinter_2.gif
Local or Network Printer
  • Click "Local Printer"
  • Make sure there's NO checkmark next to "Automatically detect and install ..."
  • Click Next

addprinter_3.gif
Select a Printer Port
  • If your printer is actually attached to the computer, click "Use the following port" and select the port your printer's attached to.
  • If you're installing a driver only to keep PowerPoint happy, choose LPT1: or FILE: (it doesn't really matter, since you'll never actually print to the port)
  • If you're installing a local driver but need to print to a network printer, look for the printer's port on the network and choose it, if available. If not, choose LPT1: for now. You can change the setting later.
  • Click Next (please select canon from list)

addprinter_4.gif
Install Printer Software
  • If installing a real printer, select your printer manufacturer and printer model here.
  • If you have an installation disk or CD that came with the printer, click "Have Disk" and locate the INF file for the printer (check the printer's documentation for specific instructions).
  • If installing a printer only to keep PowerPoint happy, choose the HP LaserJet 4V/4MV as we've done here
  • Click Next

addprinter_5.gif
Name Your Printer
  • Give the printer a name (this is the name you'll use to select it later)
  • If installing a printer just to make PowerPoint happy, you might want to give it a name that indicates it isn't a real physical printer (PPT Pacifier, or the like)
  • Click "Yes" under "Do you want to use this printer as the default printer" (this option may not appear in all Windows versions; see Notes below)
  • Click Next

addprinter_6.gif
Printer Sharing
  • Click "Do not share this printer"
  • Click Next

  • Click No
  • Click Next

Canon MP276 show a error number B200. How I solve it?

Try removing ink cartridge and see if the error goes away. If it does, you have a bad cartridge. Sometimes that happens to new cartridges as well. When your printer shows a b200 error, the ink carrier will not move, so you have to gently move it to where you access cartridge to remove it. This is for all canon printers that have a 2 cartridge ink system. For printers with a removable printhead, see solution below:

IP4300canon printer

The problem is that the ridiculously cheap little plastic piece on the door hinge that is supposed to trip the switch that tells the printer that the door is open is either a) broken off or b) no longer aligned so that it pushes the switch all the way. I solved the problem by removing the top cover and gluing the switch open with super glue.

To open the cover, find yourself a small, flat piece of metal (or stiff plastic) about 1/2" wide and a few millimeters thick. (A very flat-bladed screwdriver will do, but I made myself one out of the non-sharp side of a straight-edge razor blade.) Push this into the 5 slots marked with an arrow around the sides and back of the printer (they're toward the bottom of the sides.) Pry up on the cover at the back and then pull straight up on the front. There are two flat vertical pieces that slide into slots at the front that have to come up - they were tough to make come loose, just try not to break them off.

Pick up the electronic control panel that is on the front right of the printer. (You might have to remove the silver piece of plastic at the right front corner. It pulls straight up to remove.) The switch is the little black plastic piece on the left side of the electronic control panel. Push it to the "open" position (opposite the resting position) and glue it in place. Reassemble your printer and voila! no more annoying "door closed" message!
