If you get a canon printer in error state status on your contraption, by then, you need to make port settings changes. In the first place, press Windows key + R on your comfort and a short time later sort devmgmt.msc. Further, you need to tap on the Enter catch to open the device chief.February 3, 2021 at 12:56 #41938Bruce BannerParticipant
Step 1: Fix Port issues.
Windows 10 has some problems with the ports when it comes to printers. You can quickly fix this by following the steps: –
Go to Device Manager. You can do so by right-clicking on the Start menu and selecting “Device Manager” from the power user menu. On the Device Manager window, click on the view menu and select “Show hidden devices” options from the drop-down.
Now, you will see Ports (COM & LPT) options available in the Device Manager window. Expand the category and right-click on the Printer Port. From the pop-up menu that appears, click on Properties.
Next, click on the “Port Settings” tab. From the options available, select “Use any interrupt assigned to the port.” Next, check the box that says – “Enable Legacy Plug and Play Detection.”
After making the selections, click on OK to save the changes and close the Device Manager. You will now need to restart your computer. After restarting, you should be able to use your printer. If not, move to the next step.
Step 2: Reinstall the driver.
Firstly, open the Device Manager by right-clicking on the Start menu. From the power user menu, click on Device Manager.
From the Device Manager window, click on the Printer option to Expand the list. From the list, find your printer and right-click on it. A context menu opens up. From this menu, select “Uninstall Device” to remove the current driver.
When you click on Uninstall Device, a warning pop-up will appear on your screen saying “You are about to uninstall this device from your system.” Click on OK to proceed.
After the uninstallation process completes, restart your computer to let the changes take effect. After restarting, connect your printer to the system, and it should start installing the printer automatically. If the system asks for the driver location, insert the CD that came with the printer. Restart your computer again after installing the driver.
Step 3: Manually update the driver.
If the problem persists, you must go ahead and update the driver for your printer. Go to the manufacturer’s website and search for drivers for your printer. Manually download the latest version of the driver.
Once downloaded, double-click on it to start the installation process. The installation file will update the existing driver automatically. Make sure that your canon printer is connected to your computer at all times.
Hope this works.
