My printer is not working again. I was able to print something after you sorted it out but the same thing is happening again. I checked everything again, closed it down, unplugged it and waited for one minute, but it still does not work. What shall I do?
Expert:  Viet - Camera Tech replied 1 year ago.

I'm sorry; it is strange. I will help again. Please try the following:

1. Disconnect the power cord(s) from your internet modem/router device(s) for a couple of minutes, then re-connect.

2. Turn off printer, then disconnect power cord from printer for a couple of minutes, then re-connect, then turn on. Then wait a few minutes, then see if you can print something.

3. If that does not work, please do the following on the computer:

  1. Make sure printer is powered on.
  2. Click on the Apple logo / menu at the top, then click on System Preferences.
  3. Then click on Printers & Scanners (or Print & Fax.)
  4. There, click on the Canon printer, then click on the - (minus) button at bottom left, and confirm Yes to delete it for now. Make sure there is not any Canon item showing there for now.
  5. Then click on the + (plus) button at bottom left, and see if it detects your Canon printer.
    - If yes, then click on the Canon printer, and add it.
  6. Then see if you can print now.

Please let me know if there is still any issue. Thank you,
