Canon Installlation Problems


G

gbirnie

We have the Canon D880 printers connected by USB to our computers. We have
recently updated the PCs and when trying to install the old Canon D880
printers it is not working properly. They are on the XP operating systems and
when doing the install it does seem as if it does work and says that the
installation is complete. However when printing a test page or anything from
the PC it does not work. I have been through all the whistles with Canon
themselves and they are now saying that it is a Microsoft Windows issue. Does
anyone have any suggestions on how to get these printers to work? Here is a
copy of a few of the steps we have tried thus far on Canon's side, even
though I am not giving up on them yet either. I was just hoping someone would
be able to help out.





Dear Gabrielle Birnie:

I went through these processes and at Step 5 where you install the printer
again, it does come up as the printer has installed correctly, but it never
prompts for you to plug in the USB cable. When I do plug in the USB cable it
made a copy of the printer under the "printers and faxes" folder. I did try
to print a test page from both while in Selective Startup Mode and both
attempts were unsuccessful.

Gabi Birnie:

Thank you for your reply and information.

Let's try the following to rectify the issue:

1. Uninstall the driver using the 'uninstall' option of the Canon unit
listing under 'All Programs'.

2. Once uninstalled, go into the Device Manager. If still listed, delete
'Canon iCD800' with the yellow question mark and 'USB Printing Support'.

3. Follow by disconnecting the USB Cable and placing the computer in a
Selective Startup mode as previously outlined.

4. As the computer is restarting, disconnect the power cord from the D880
for 30-60 seconds. Plug the power for the unit in again and ensure a normal
display is seen in the LCD. Do not connect the USB cable.

5. Proceed to perform the installation of the driver and only connect the
USB cable when prompted by the software.

6. Try a test print while in the Selective Startup mode.

7. If successful, repeat steps 1 and 2 in the previous Selective Startup
instructions, click Normal Startup and then restart your computer.

8. Try another test print once the computer has returned to the Normal Mode.

Should you be unsuccessful, it is recommended to contact the Personal Copier
Technical Support Group at 1-800-828-4040, 8A-8P EST, Monday - Friday or
10A-8P Saturday for further support. The technician will be happy to walk
you through steps to resolve the issue efficiently. At the time of your call
please be near your unit and have the 8 character serial number from the back
of your unit handy.

I do hope this information is helpful to you. Please let us know if we can
be of any further assistance with your D880.

Thank you for choosing Canon.

Sincerely,

Deborah

The PCs are on a network. I have tried installing this same printer on 4 PCs
now and none seem to work. They are not upgraded PCs though. Some may have
been downgraded from the new Vista program. We have decided not to use that
program within our Circuit. The items listed under Universal Serial Bus
Controllers are as follows:

-Intel(R)8280IG(ICH7 Family) USB Universal Host Controller - 27CB

-Intel(R)8280IG(ICH7 Family) USB Universal Host Controller - 27C9

-Intel(R)8280IG(ICH7 Family) USB Universal Host Controller - 27CA

-Intel(R)8280IG(ICH7 Family) USB Universal Host Controller - 27CB

-Intel(R)8280IG(ICH7 Family) USB2 Enhanced Host Controller - 27CC -USB
Printing Support -USB Root Hub -USB Root Hub -USB Root Hub -USB Root Hub -USB
Root Hub Then in the device manager it does have an other devices marked with
a yellow question mark. When clicking the + to expand that it says Canon
iCD800.

Thanks again for all your help,

When doing what you suggested on another PC (a barebones with nothing on it
besides XP) the printer does install correctly without the error.

When you go to print a test page, a test page does not print still. The
screen flashes but nothing happens and after a few seconds the queue goes
back to ready as if a test page did print.

you have experienced with the D880 and installing.

Unfortunately, the error message you have provided indicates a possible

Startup:

1. Click Start and then Run.

2. In the Open box of the Run window, type msconfig and and then click OK.

3. In the General tab of the System Configuration Utility window, click on
the Selective Startup radio button.

4. Remove the check in the Load Startup Items box.

5. Click the Services tab.

6. At the bottom of the Services tab, click Hide all Microsoft Services
box. The window will refresh.

7. Under Service column, uncheck each box that is left in this tab.

James,

There is no error given while trying to print. While installing the drivers
I do get an error that reads "An exception occurred while trying to
run"shell32.dll, SHHelpshortcuts_RunDLL_AddPrinter". I can still make copies
and receive faxes though. Yes, it is connected straight to my PC.

Thank you for the help. This one has me kind of stumped!

Thanks,

Gabi

Hi gb,

Interesting scenario; looks like a phone call and lots of oh-hold time
coming up! Aint' progress just great? <g>

One thing I didn't notice anywhere in the list here, but which is so
basic I'd think it must have been checked, but what about the
possibility that there is either a bad cable or something on the printer
that tells it to use COM or ethernet or USB or ... whatever?
Just thought; I've been stumped by simpler things before.
Apparently the printer "thinks" it printed? That to me says
something in the communications area at least, not the innards so mcuh.
Cabling, interfaces, special USB cable, whatever?
This is all WAG, but: Have you tried to see if it'll print from a COM
port? If it works that way, maybe there's a CMOS chip lockup inside,
that might free it.

Just WAGs; nothing of any real help here I know, but figured it couldn't
hurt...I "lucked out" and had an HP sent to me once that they had left a
"test" jumper inside it. Apparently they didn't actually put paper in
them for their tests or they'd have HAD to known it wasn't printing.
I'd think. YUK! Anyway ...

Regards,

Twayne

How old is the 880...If 2-3 years old or more,you might 1st,locate all canon
files on pc & delete them,also look in %Temp% ,and in regedit,delete all.Once
finished,on restart or shutdown unplug canon.Run pc a time or two without it.
Once thru,plug in canon to another usb port,once in xp,let the "found new
hard-
ware wizard" run,but dont let it exit..At this point,install canon cd,if
you already
havent,run the canon software installation (this actually gets it
installed),once
its thru,exit the hardware wizard.Next install canon updates for SP2 &
SP3,get
those from canon downloads,restart pc...Also,you said "computers",if a pc or
more doesnt run canon,download the "print-migrator" from microsoft,install to
pc that canon works on,create migrator shortcut,move shortcut to non-working
pc,it should run once migrator is opened...

I went through these processes and at Step 5 where you install the printer
again, it does come up as the printer has installed correctly, but it never
prompts for you to plug in the USB cable. When I do plug in the USB cable it
made a copy of the printer under the "printers and faxes" folder. I did try
to print a test page from both while in Selective Startup Mode and both
attempts were unsuccessful.

Gabi Birnie:

Thank you for your reply and information.

Let's try the following to rectify the issue:

1. Uninstall the driver using the 'uninstall' option of the Canon unit
listing under 'All Programs'.

2. Once uninstalled, go into the Device Manager. If still listed, delete
'Canon iCD800' with the yellow question mark and 'USB Printing Support'.

3. Follow by disconnecting the USB Cable and placing the computer in a
Selective Startup mode as previously outlined.

4. As the computer is restarting, disconnect the power cord from the D880
for 30-60 seconds. Plug the power for the unit in again and ensure a normal
display is seen in the LCD. Do not connect the USB cable.

5. Proceed to perform the installation of the driver and only connect the
USB cable when prompted by the software.

6. Try a test print while in the Selective Startup mode.

7. If successful, repeat steps 1 and 2 in the previous Selective Startup
instructions, click Normal Startup and then restart your computer.

8. Try another test print once the computer has returned to the Normal Mode.

Should you be unsuccessful, it is recommended to contact the Personal Copier
Technical Support Group at 1-800-828-4040, 8A-8P EST, Monday - Friday or
10A-8P Saturday for further support. The technician will be happy to walk
you through steps to resolve the issue efficiently. At the time of your call
please be near your unit and have the 8 character serial number from the back
of your unit handy.

I do hope this information is helpful to you. Please let us know if we can
be of any further assistance with your D880.

Thank you for choosing Canon.

Deborah

been downgraded from the new Vista program. We have decided not to use that
program within our Circuit. The items listed under Universal Serial Bus
Controllers are as follows:

-Intel(R)8280IG(ICH7 Family) USB Universal Host Controller - 27CB

When doing what you suggested on another PC (a barebones with nothing on it
besides XP) the printer does install correctly without the error.

When you go to print a test page, a test page does not print still. The
screen flashes but nothing happens and after a few seconds the queue goes
back to ready as if a test page did print.

1. Click Start and then Run.

2. In the Open box of the Run window, type msconfig and and then click OK.

3. In the General tab of the System Configuration Utility window, click on
the Selective Startup radio button.

4. Remove the check in the Load Startup Items box.

5. Click the Services tab.

6. At the bottom of the Services tab, click Hide all Microsoft Services
box. The window will refresh.

Haven`t read all , but I would suggest uninstalling and then
reinstalling the printer .





We have the Canon D880 printers connected by USB to our computers. We have
recently updated the PCs and when trying to install the old Canon D880
printers it is not working properly. They are on the XP operating systems and
when doing the install it does seem as if it does work and says that the
installation is complete. However when printing a test page or anything from
the PC it does not work. I have been through all the whistles with Canon
themselves and they are now saying that it is a Microsoft Windows issue. Does
anyone have any suggestions on how to get these printers to work? Here is a
copy of a few of the steps we have tried thus far on Canon's side, even
though I am not giving up on them yet either. I was just hoping someone would
be able to help out.





Dear Gabrielle Birnie:



Thank you for your reply.



Based on the specific issue you have described, we recommend contacting
Canons live technical support at this point. While I understand email may be

James,

There is no error given while trying to print. While installing the drivers
I do get an error that reads "An exception occurred while trying to
run"shell32.dll, SHHelpshortcuts_RunDLL_AddPrinter". I can still make copies
and receive faxes though. Yes, it is connected straight to my PC.

Thank you for the help. This one has me kind of stumped!

Thanks,

Gabi

installed and we can not install the printer now. I looked on the website for
drivers, but there are only drivers for service pack two.

When trying to install using those drivers it acts as if it works but when
you print a test page nothing occurs. Do you have the updated drivers or any
suggestions to take to install this printer on this new PC?
