    I have a canon muti pass that does not always work from my usb port on my 98 se system.It will fax from the computer to the fax but will not always print.sometimes it does not recognize the printer or it says no paper in printer.If i shut it down after it does not recognize the printer the next time I start the system up it says I have print jobs in the Que to print and would i like to print them now.Sometimes it works sometimes it comes back with no printer recognized or no paper etc..... The printer worked fine when i first put it on the system but after a while it started acting up.I need to use the usb because I have hardlocks for software that do not like a printer running thru them.Hence the USB.Any help would be a Good thing. Thanks to all JW

    Welcome to TSG since youre new ill give ya some guidelines.
    When ya post put your OS, and device types first makes it easier for those who find your post later to catch up on your prob. Ok on to the prob try uninstalling your printer then reinstalling. Make sure that you remove the device from device manager. Hopefullythis will help good luck
