Do you have Canon service support telephone number please.

what happens when you try?

I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.

  2. Control+Click in the left side printer list (or optionally, right-click on a specific printer if one is shown) and select “Reset Print System…”

If you know the Canon Service Centre number that I can call, that would be helpful. I cant locate that!! Thanks.

ok, though there are additional steps we can do, as we need to rule out the wifi router, but I will mark this question to remain open if you wish to resume.
