Canon Pixma Megatank G2260 Not Printing- Let’s Fix It Together
Now, let’s see some effective troubleshooting methods that can help fix the printer not printing problem.
Turn On The Printer
Your printer will not print the selected document if it is turned off or not ready for the print operation.
Initially, confirm that your printer is turned on (if it is already turned on, restart it).
To verify it, check your printer’s Power light status.
In case the light is solid green, it indicates that the printer is turned on. Otherwise, it is turned off.
Press the On/Off button on the operational panel to turn on the printer.
Unplug and reconnect the printer to your electrical outlet if necessary.
Ensure that your Canon printer’s hardware and software setup, such as loading paper into the tray, filling the ink tanks, and installing the MP driver, are completed successfully. In other words, make sure that your Canon printer is ready to use.
Resolving The “communication Failure” Problem
If your Canon PIXMA MegaTank G2260 printer and the computer or smartphone are connected to different networks, then there is a chance for a communication failure problem to occur. As a result, the printer will not print or respond to the print operation.
Connect your Windows or Mac computer (or smartphone) and the printer to the same network if they are connected to different networks.
If you’re using VPN, disconnect it from your computer.
Also, if you’re using or configuring the firewall or any security settings, temporarily disable them. You need to turn off these settings because they can also lead to communication failure between the printer and your computer or smartphone.
Configure The Print Settings Correctly
Misconfigured print settings, choosing the wrong printer model, failing to choose the correct printer driver, etc., will also block the printer from printing the selected document.
Check whether the print settings, such as media type, print resolution, printer model, etc., are selected correctly. If not, configure them correctly.
Make sure that the correct Canon PIXMA printer driver is selected.
Installing The Latest Compatible Printer Driver
The printer driver must always be up-to-date to perform the printer-related operation and access the latest printer features.
Update the printer driver if available.
If you have installed the wrong printer driver on your computer, uninstall it and reinstall the latest and the most compatible driver on it.
Now, check if your printer is responding to the print operation.
