Install appropriate drivers
Your printing problems might be related to your Canon printer driver. A printer driver is a particular software that alters the picture, document or web page you want to print to something that the printer understands. Printer drivers are often used for specific printer series or models of Canon with different versions depending on the operating system of the computer to which the printer is connected to.
Use good quality ink cartridges
Sometimes, the ink cartridge or print head nozzles in your Canon printer might be blocked or the printer cartridge may be empty. Most Canon printers have a cleaning program for print heads. If you do not know how to start the program, search the Internet or check your printer manual for instructions. You will have to then run a cleaning program and check if you are able to print. Canon printers indicate if they are running low on ink or toner by signaling with the aid of an indicator lamp. You can check this too.
A Canon printer that is switched on usually will have an indicator light. If the light is not lit, ensure that your power button is turned on. When power is on, you should be able to hear the printing mechanism moving inside your Canon printer. Also ensure that the printer cable connecting your Canon printer to the PC is tightly attached at both ends. Other than this cable, there should be one more cable that is connected to the wall outlet.
