Install drivers for Canon® printers
What are the tips to install Canon printer drivers on your PC?
The first thing to keep in mind when you have a new printer is to make sure that the printer driver matches the Canon printer itself. For installing drivers, select 'Downloads' at the top of the Canon official site. This will bring you to a menu where you will be asked if you are a consumer or a professional. On the pull-down menu select 'Consumer'. Choose 'Printers' from the options that appears. This will give you access to all of the printers and scanners that Canon makes. Select the model name of your printer from the next list. Choose your printer's model number. Start downloading. The users should also follow the onscreen instructions at at the time of downloading.
The following are some of the consequences faced while installing incompatible printer drivers for Canon:
- Unstable Operating System
- Malfuctioning of printer
- Unable to reinstall with the orginal software later
Unstable Operating System
Forcing a system to install incompatible drivers and software tend to affect the system stability as the driver or software forces its way to the OS which can cause alteration in the system files. High technical expertise are needed to get back the system to normal. Formatting or reinstallation of OS can get back the system to normal but all the software installed in the C drive earlier may get lost.
Malfuctioning of printer
Incompatible programmes can lead your printer to malfunction. Reinstalling the older driver completely and installing the compatible driver can bring the printer back to function. The ink that you are using should be an authorized one. You should install the cartridge correctly. Mostly these are the reasons which causes the printers to malfunction.
There are certain cases where the fault printer driver, force its way to the System 32 and cannot be reinstalled. In such cases, even trying to install the driver with the original software later may not work. A complete reinstallation of the operating system is recommended under such situation to get the System 32 database to load by default. Manually trying to reinstall the OS without technical expertise can cause other problems.
