Before we speak over the phone or attempt a screen sharing connection. Id like to cover our bases. And make sure that this is something we can resolve together.

Question, at any point since you installed the printer, did it work?

Also, if you go to system preferences, printers and scanners. Is your printer listed, and if so. How many times?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The printer has been working until today. It is the only one listed in my printers and scanners
Expert:  Dustin replied 1 year ago.

Ok, lets try this ... Crtl click the printer inside printers and scanners.

reset the printing system.

And then reinstall the printer driver from the canon page.

Then try to print.. do you still get the same error?
