Hi, i'm having problems with getting my scanner/printer to do anything. To begin with whenever i turned it on the LCD always said

"Printer error has occured. Turn off power then back on again. If problem persists see the manual"

and so i turn it off and the message only reappears, it seems to not be able to load properly.

I did get it to load once or twice, (how it hapenned is beside me) and successfully printed something off, but on attempting a scan the same message came up midscan. Now i'm back to square one, with only ever seeing the error message all the time and the printer/scanner giving me no options and not loading properly.

Does anybody have any good advice?

the driver discs also told me that the driver cant install properly either, am i likely to have these problems if my laptop only has Windows XP? Also, for some reason i think it only loads properly if it's been left off for hours, why is this?:mad:

thanks xxxxx

Firmware is somewhere between hardware and software. Please give me your printer model #, i will check for you.

The Manual says: "Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cordof the machine from the power supply. After a while, plug the power cord of the machine back in, and turn on the machine. If the same error occurs, contact a Canon service."

I hope, this helps.
