Sometimes, the printing troubles you are having with your Canon printer may not be a problem with the printer itself but with the ink cartridges that you are using in the machine. It can also be possible that any current modifications that you have made to your system may not be compatible with the printer, such as printer driver.
Some tips to fix the issues with Canon printer are mentioned below:
- Install proper driver
- Use good ink cartridges
- Adequate power supply
Install proper driver
You may be facing problems in your Canon printer due to the faulty printer driver. A printer driver is a kind of software that translates the image, document or webpage that you want to print to a format that the printer understands. Printer drivers are most often made for particular printer models or series with different versions depending on the operating system for the computer to which the printer is connected to. So, you should install the right drivers suitable for your system from the official website.
Use good ink cartridges
At times, the ink cartridge or printhead nozzles in your Canon printer may get obstructed or the printer cartridge may be lacking ink. Most printers have cleaning software for the printheads in them. You can run the cleaning software and check if you are able to take prints. The level of ink in an ink cartridge is normally observable. Then shake your cartridge and put it back into the Canon printer to see whether you can print. Canon printers indicate if they are low on ink while printing by blinking an indicator light.
A Canon printer when turned on generally will blink a green indicator light. If the light is not lit, then check whether your power button is turned on. When power is applied, you will be able to hear the sound of the printing mechanism moving inside your Canon printer. Now, you should check that the printer cable connected to your Canon printer is been connected to the PC is firmly attached at both ends.
