Have managed to install my Canon Pixma 5550 as a Wireless printer, apparently successfully, but it will not print. Job stays “Pending”. The reason given by Diagnostics is that “Enabled” needs to be checked in Policies. However, I have checked this box several times but it does not stay checked even though I’ve clicked the ‘Apply’ button. Any ideas?
try the Canon Asia links provided here and install the drivers again:
Thanks.I was fairly sure that I had the right drivers so concentrated on the setup. After several attempts trying to follow the on-screen instructions, I finally hit on the solution. The problem centred on the printer address and what worked was far simpler than I thought: I ignored the “Network Printer” option but simply filled in the URL like this:
http:// the IP address plus 631. For example: http://192.168.1.7.631
(I think the 631 is to do with the printer queue).
