How to Clear a Paper Jam on a Canon Inkjet Printer

How to Clear a Paper Jam on a Canon Inkjet Printer | Canon Support for Scanner | Scoop.it

For many people, maintaining a Canon Inkjet Printer in the home or office can be expensive and frustrating. There are numerous error messages and they always come at inconvenient times. Many Canon printers today have LCD monitors to help us understand problems that arise, however, many inkjet printers do not come with such monitors. Most of us do not read the Canon Inkjet Printer manuals thoroughly and have little to no idea what the blinking error light means. Paper jams are among the most common problem with Canon Inkjet Printers. Follow these instructions to learn how to clear a paper jam on a Canon Inkjet Printer:

Instructions

1

Protect yourself from shock. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the Canon Inkjet Printer. This is an important step when working inside ANY electronic device.

2

Unhinge the back access panel of the printer. It seems repetitive to say this, but this door will be in the BACK of the printer.

3

Look through the opened back panel and look for paper. Remove any and all paper you find jammed there.

4

Close the back access panel. Make sure that it latches into place and looks the same way that it did before you opened it.

5

Find the front or top access panel. This is the panel you would lift to change ink cartridges. Open this access panel. If the carriage that holds the ink cartridges moves, then you forgot to unplug the printer, go back and do that now. Look for paper that may be jammed in this area of the printer.

6

Remove any paper you find jammed here. When pulling from the front there will be resistance from the paper feeder. Pull slowly or the paper will rip and create a more stressful problem.

7

Close the front access panel. Make sure that it falls or latches back in place. It should look the same way that it did before you opened it.

8

Plug the printer's power cord into the wall outlet, and attempt to print again. If the printer prints the job, then you have successfully removed the paper jam.

How to Diagnose Canon Printer Problems

How to Diagnose Canon Printer Problems | Canon Support for Scanner | Scoop.it

Canon is one of the largest manufacturers of printers and copiers for home and office use. Canon printers come in several types and models, including laser, inkjet, photo and the very popular all-in-one printers that copy, scan, print and fax. As with all technical equipment, printers can misbehave. Follow the steps below to diagnose Canon printer problems.

Instructions

1. General Issues

1

Check for a paper jam. Paper jams occur when one or more sheets of paper become stuck in the feeding or printing mechanism. Gently remove any jammed paper and reset the printer.

2

Check ink levels. Those ink cartridges run out fast. If your printer looks like it is printing but nothing comes out on the page, you might be out of ink. Try replacing the cartridge and printing again.

3

Check for a clogged print head. If you know you have ink, the print head might be clogged. Navigate to "Control Panel > Printer > Right Click > Properties > Maintenance > Clean Cartridges" to attempt to clean the print head.

4

Reinstall printer drivers and software. If none of the above helps, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer and software to correct possible software bugs, errors or conflicts.

2. Canon-Specific Issues

5

Check printer drivers. Navigate to "Control Panel > Printers > Right Click > Properties > Update Driver" to check for a new driver for your printer. You can also find drivers and software on the Canon Support site (see Resources).

6

Resolve the Waste Ink Error. Press menu on the printer and press scan/copy to enter service more. Press the right arrow to access "NVRAM." Set ABS-M level to 0. Set ABS-P level to 0. Press "Stop" to exit.

7

Resolve Wrong Cartridge Message. Turn off the printer and unplug the power cord. Remove the cartridges and the print head. Clean the print head in lukewarm water. Set it aside to dry. Clean the contacts gently with an eraser and wipe with a tissue. Reinstall the print head and reinsert the cartridges. Run a cartridge alignment.

8

Resolve E0D02 error. Clean the cartridges and the sender strip. The sender strip is behind the rubber drive belt behind the main hatch. It runs horizontally across the machine. Wipe it gently with a lint free cloth.

The Canon MP170 Won't Print Though the Ink Is Full

The Canon MP170 Won't Print Though the Ink Is Full | Canon Support for Scanner | Scoop.it

If you recently inserted a new ink cartridge into your Canon MP170 printer but have found the device still isn't producing copies, you need to troubleshoot the situation. Typically, this is due to a minor programming or connection problem and is corrected with only a few short steps. Once it is corrected, you can return to printing the documents as if nothing had happened.

Instructions

1 Check the power on the Canon MP170. If the printer is not currently turned on, your computer is unable to send the print request to the hardware.

2 Inspect the printer to make sure there is paper in the printer.

3 Look at the USB data cable connection. If the cable is not hooked up completely, the printer is still not going to receive the print request.

4 Remove the USB data cable from the current USB port on the computer and insert it into a different USB port. Sometimes, some USB hardware does not function with certain ports, and USB ports also are capable of dying out, preventing anything form connecting with them.

5 Open the document you are attempting to print, then select "Print" and look at the print options. Make sure the Canon MP170 is selected as the go-to printer. If it isn't, the print request is being created for a different printer.

Setup Secrets for Canon Printers

Setup Secrets for Canon Printers | Canon Support for Scanner | Scoop.it

I finally decided to abandon my 5 year old Canon inkjet printer (and my even older separate Canon flatbed scanner) and move up to an All-in-One (AIO) model. For me, this meant getting a model without a fax capability. I never fax and didn’t want to waste money on unneeded hardware that would unnecessarily complicate the machine.

Instead, I wanted the absolute best combination of photo printer and scanner/copier that I could find. I settled on the new Canon MP990. So far, I’ve been very happy with it. It’s fast, photos are sharp and accurate, and scanning quality appears excellent. Perhaps my biggest surprise was to discover how much Canon’s application software has improved since my prior printer and scanner purchases. For example, Canon’s MP Navigator EX scanner software includes an OCR feature. In my brief testing, it converted a page of plain text into an editable TextEdit document with amazing speed and accuracy. The more I explore what this AIO can do, the more cool features I uncover.

In my decision making, there was one more significant advantage of the Canon MP990 over many other models I considered: I could connect the MP990 via Ethernet (in addition to USB or Wi-Fi). This meant I could share the MP990 to all the Macs on my local network via the Ethernet port on my AirPort Extreme Base Station. A critical point here is that both the printer and scanner components of the MP990 can be accessed from my Mac via this Ethernet setup. If I instead connected the MP990 to the USB port on the AirPort Extreme, I would only be able to access to the printer (because the AirPort Extreme does not support scanning over USB).

Is the MP990 the absolute best printer/scanner combo I could have gotten? I don’t know. I didn’t do side-by-side comparisons with all its competitors. I’ll leave that to others. This column is not meant as a review anyway. Rather, I want to alert you to a few setup problems you may have if you too decide to buy this, or a similar recent, Canon AIO.

Are you running Snow Leopard? If you a running Mac OS X 10.6.x, you’ll have a bit of work to do before you can use the printer. First, be sure to install the latest Canon Printer Drivers Update for 10.6, available from Apple. But that’s not enough. Even with the update installed, when you launch the Canon Setup application (from the included CD), you will be greeted with this message:

If you click the “Check Latest Info” button, as advised, you are taken to a Web page from which you are supposed to get the needed drivers. Unfortunately, the page doesn’t yet list the MP990 (it only goes as high as the MP980, at least as of today). Don’t despair. There is another page from which you can get the.

After installing these drivers, and assuming you have already properly set up and connected the printer to your Mac or network (via the instructions included with the MP990), you can now add the MP990 to your Mac’s printer list via typical methods — such as by accessing Add Printer from the Print & Fax System Preferences pane.

But wait. You’re not quite done. The Setup application didn’t tell you this — but you still don’t have any of the included Canon utility and application software. To get these, go back to the Canon CD and run Setup again. This time, when the above dialog appears, ignore the warning and click OK. Next, select Custom Install. From the window that appears, select to install everything but the MP drivers. Now you’re really done.

Can’t use scanner over network (Ethernet)? Having finished all of the above, I still was unable to access the MP990’s scanner from my Mac. Printing worked fine over Ethernet, but not scanning. The scanner hardware was working; I could scan-to-print from the MP990 itself. But I could not get any software on my Mac (such as Mac OS X 10.6’s Image Capture or Canon’s MP Navigator EX) to recognize the scanner. I suspect I would have had a similar problem with a Wi-Fi connection, but I did not confirm this.

It turns out that what I needed to know is contained in the the MP990 On-screen Manual (which gets installed to your Mac from the CD). The critical section is “Advanced Guide > Scanning > Canon IJ Network Scanner Selector Screens > Canon IJ Network Scanner Selector Menu and Setting Screen.” This is not an immediately obvious place to go and is not easy to find. To save you the trouble, here are the key steps you need to do:

1. In your Mac’s menu bar, locate an icon that looks like a scanner with an arrow pointing to the right. Click it. Select “Open Settings…” from the menu that drops down. This launches Canon IJ Network Scanner Selector.

The Scanner Selector software is tucked away in the /Library/Printers/Canon folder, which is why you won’t find it by looking in your Applications folder or via a typical Spotlight search.

2. From the Scanner Selector’s settings, shift the enabled radio button from “Do Not Use” to the item that has the name of your printer.

Over at the MP990’s LCD screen (Canon calls it the Operation-Panel), the scanner settings should now include a network option (in addition to the USB option that is there by default). If the network option is not already enabled, manually select it now.

You can now scan over your Ethernet network.

3. Even after completing all of the above, you probably still won’t be able to access the scanner from the MP Navigator EX application. To get this working, you need to launch the application and click the Preferences button in the lower right of Navigator’s main window (ignore the Preferences command in MP Navigator EX menu; it will be unselectable!). Now, from the Product Name menu in Preferences, select the networked version of your MP990.

Done at last. Or maybe not. You may still have work to do, such as to set up the scanner driver to work from within Photoshop (if you own the Adobe software).

Canon could certainly have made it easier for you to figure all of this out. The good news is that, once you’re done with these setup hassles, you’ll have a great feature-packed printer and scanner. Enjoy.

How to Diagnose Canon Printer Problems

How to Diagnose Canon Printer Problems | Canon Support for Scanner | Scoop.it

Printing Issues on Canon imagePROGRAF Large Format Printers (Mac OSX )

A number of users may come across problems printing from Vectorworks to Canon's imagePROGRAF line of large format printers. This problem may include missing text, incorrect scaling and randomly disappearing geometry.

Normally the issue is not present when the user attempts to Export to PDF instead, but then can become apparent again when trying to print that PDF from Preview or Adobe Reader.

(This is primarily an issue with the Canon print drivers in Mac OSX 10.6)

This may be corrected by going to the File > Print > Printer Settings in Vectorworks, then under the Main menu, in the Advanced Settings tab, uncheck the option for "Fast Graphics Process

How to Install a Canon Printer in Mac Classic

How to Install a Canon Printer in Mac Classic | Canon Support for Scanner | Scoop.it

Mac Classic is any version of Mac that came before Mac OS X, but it usually refers to Mac OS 9 and Mac OS 8 since they were the most recent operating systems before OS X came along. While all Mac OS X computers have printer drivers installed on them, most Mac Classic computers do not. To install a Canon printer on Mac Classic, it must be compatible with Mac OS 9 or lower and have an install CD.

1

Put the Canon printer install CD into your Mac and click the icon. Click on the "Install.pkg" to install the printer drivers on your Mac. Click "Continue" and then "Install."

2

Plug your Canon printer into an outlet and connect it to the Mac via the printer port or USB port. Turn the printer on.

3

Eject the disk from your Mac and open the "Chooser" in the Apple menu.

4

Choose the Canon printer's icon from the list and click on "Select a port."

5

Select the printer icon and click "Close." A new window will open prompting you to set up the printer.

6

Align your Canon printer following the directions on your screen and click "Close" when it is finished.

How to Troubleshoot Canon Printer Problems

How to Troubleshoot Canon Printer Problems | Canon Support for Scanner | Scoop.it

Canon is a brand of computer printers that makes commercial products that are available around the world. If you enjoy one of their printers at your home or office you may at some time experience some slight performance errors. These problems are usually easily fixed by following a simple troubleshooting process, which will take you just a few minutes. If you continue to experience printer failure or the problems become more severe, contact your Canon supplier for technical support.

1. Connectivity Problems

1

Make sure that the printer is connected to a power outlet. The power cable should be connected in the back of the printer and to a working electrical socket.

2

Check that the wire from the printer is running to the correct port on the computer tower. The wire runs from the small, square port on the printer to one of the USB ports on your tower or laptop computer.

3

Turn the printer on. Much of your printing failures can be avoided by making sure that the power is turned on before selecting the print command.

4

Install any updates or replacement software needed to run your printer on your computer. You can get this software from the manufacturer's website and will be notified through your printer drive if there is something new to download.

2. Feeder Problems

5

Pull out all of the paper supply in the printer and make sure that all pieces of paper are flat and whole. Any folded corners, crumpled sheets or torn pieces should be thrown away.

6

Check the size of the paper you are using and check the paper guide on the supply to make sure the paper is the correct size. The paper guide is the small plastic clip that holds the paper steady in the feeder.

7

Open the cover of the printer and make sure there is no paper stuck within the feed rollers. You should pull out the jammed paper if there is any, including any little torn pieces that may be stuck inside.

8

Clean out the feed rollers with compressed air to remove any dirt inside the printer and refill the paper supply.

3. Ink Problems

9

Check the ink levels in your cartridges to see if you have to replace the ink. You can do this through the control panel of your printer software. If you don't know where to find these controls, just search your computer for 'printer drive'.

10

Open the cover of the printer and wait for the ink cartridges to stop in front of you within the printer. This will allow you to take them out and replace them with full ones.

11

Pull the cartridges out of the printer. The number of cartridges and how to remove them will vary with your model of printer, but usually there is a small clip holding the top edge of the cartridge in place. Just push this clip back and pull the ink out.

12

Pull the protective seal off the head of the new ink cartridge. This is where the ink comes out and when you pull off the seal it will allow the ink to descend.

13

Drop the ink cartridges into the printer and push each cartridge into place. If there are clips you will hear them click when the cartridges are in place.

14

Run a diagnostics test on your ink heads if your ink problems persist after refilling the ink. This will help you clear out the heads.

Why Does My Canon Multipass Printer Print Boxes Instead of Text?

Why Does My Canon Multipass Printer Print Boxes Instead of Text? | Canon Support for Scanner | Scoop.it

The problem of a Canon Multipass printing only boxes is not uncommon. This issue actually can be seen on any printer, particularly older ones, and also will sometimes manifest in nonsense characters instead of just boxes.

Driver Issues

The most common reason for this problem is an incorrect or outdated print driver, which can be corrected easily by downloading the newest driver from the Canon website.

Spooler Issues

Sometimes the print spooler can become overwhelmed and lose track of jobs, causing nonsense printouts. This can be fixed by turning the printer off and then unplugging the connection to the computer for 30 seconds.

Memory Overload

Many printers (particularly older ones) have very little memory and are easily overloaded. Avoid this by limiting the amount of pages you send to your printer at once.

Canon MX870 prints incredibly slow via WIFI

Canon MX870 prints incredibly slow via WIFI | Canon Support for Scanner | Scoop.it

I have an MX870 with an iMac quad core running OSX 10.6 and a net gear router. I don't use a USB cable because the run would exceed 15' because of the way the furniture is layed out where the computer and printer are, and the USB cable is too long to power the connection. This has happened with every printer I've used. However, the printer/computer and router are all physically within about 6 feet of each other at most (I'm just trying to avoid running a USB cable directly across the carpet in the middle of the living room). So I use the wireless printing option. However, even when i have a document that is composed of nothing more than 1 black and white sentence and nothing else on the page, or a envelope that I'm putting nothing more on than an address, it always takes between 2-3 minutes from the time I hit print, to the time the paper comes out of the printer. Even with wireless printing, this can't be right. There has to be some way of speeding up the process. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks

Canon Pixma MP800: Troubleshooting Guide

Canon Pixma MP800: Troubleshooting Guide | Canon Support for Scanner | Scoop.it

Canon designed the PIXMA MP800 as an all-in-one printer, copier and scanner. It appeals to the home user who needs these office services but is limited for desk space. Even the best Canon printer can stop working. Troubleshoot your PIXMA MP800 to help find and fix common underlying problems that may affect the printer's performance.

Make sure the MP800 is plugged into a reliable power source--for the best results, plug it directly into an outlet instead of using an extension cable--and powered on if its front display panel is dark.

Check the front and back paper feeder slots if the MP800 makes strange noises or stops printing halfway through a printing job. The device may be clogged. Remove any pieces of paper that may be stuck.

Review the front LCD display screen for an error. The error message typically describes what's wrong and how to fix it.

Adjust the MP800's print head if your printer results look crooked or off-balance. Press the "On/Off" button to turn off the device, then turn it back on. Insert two A4-sized (letter size) sheets of plain paper into the MP800's top feeder slot. Press "Maintenance" on the MP800's display screen and use the arrow keys to scroll down to "Manual Head Align." Push "OK" and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the alignment process.

Clean the MP800's scanner bed if the LCD screen displays an error saying, "Cannot Obtain Clean Scan" or if your scanning results look streaked, splotched or obscured by debris. Canon recommends wiping the glass with a clean, lint-free cloth. Solid debris deposits can be removed with water. Don't use glass cleaners, as this may damage the MP800.

Dial the Canon printer support line at 8555172433 if you still can't get your PIXMA MP800 printer to work correctly.
