Test the parallel port driver and the hardware

If the printer is connected to an LPT port, see whether you can print from a command prompt.
  • If the printer is not a PostScript printer, type dir > lpt1 at a command prompt, and then press ENTER. You may have to do this more than once to fill the print buffer on some printers. Page-oriented printers (for example, laser printers) generally do not start to print until a form feed PCL command is sent or until more information than just a page is present in the buffer. Running the dir > lpt1 command from the Windows directory will fill the page buffer.
  • If you can successfully print from a command prompt, the parallel port driver and the hardware are working correctly. This eliminates the Graphics Device Interface (GDI) and the driver as possible causes. If the output is printed to the printer from the dir command, the print driver or printer configuration is probably the source of the problem.
  • See whether the printer cable meets the IEEE 1284 specification. If the cable does meet the specification, the cable itself is marked accordingly.
  • Make sure that no devices other than the printer are connected to the port and that no scanners, switch boxes, and so on are between the computer and the printer.
  • Perform a power-on self test (POST) on the printer. If you cannot perform a POST, you need to have the printer serviced or repaired.

Test the printer driver

To test the printer driver, see whether you can print from WordPad or Notepad.

If you can print from WordPad or Notepad, either the problem is related to the program that you are using, or Windows may not be running a particular printing command that the program requires. Refer to the "Check the Program" section of this article.
  • If you are using a PostScript printer, load the Apple LaserWriter NT driver. This is a basic PostScript driver, and using this driver can show you whether the problem is related to the particular PostScript Printer Description (PPD) file for the printer.
  • If the printer is not a PostScript printer, load the Generic/Text Only printer driver. This is a basic printer driver, and using this driver can show you whether the basic printing stack is working properly.
  • If you are using a plotter, load the Hewlett-Packard HP-GL/2 plotter driver.
If the printer does not print when you use the basic drivers, refer to the "Check the Printing Stack" section of this article.

If the printer does print when you use the basic drivers, see the "Check the Program" section of this article.

Check the program

  1. Print a different, simpler file. For example, create a new document that contains less information. This test determines whether the cause is the program or something in the document.
  2. Check the available disk space on the system drive by seeing whether a small print job prints successfully.
  3. See whether you can print from another operating system. If printing succeeds, the problem is related to the output file.

Check the printing stack

  1. Remove and reinstall the printer driver.
  2. Check the available space on the hard disk. Print jobs may not print if there is not enough space to spool the print job.

In each case, all that you might have to do to fix the problem is to download and install the latest printer driver from your printer manufacturer's Web site. This article describes how to locate and download the latest printer driver from your printer manufacturer's Web site, and how to install the driver on your computer.

New Version Of Windows? No Problem!

 

Upgrade smoothly by finding the correct drivers for your i i900D printer for Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7. For the first time, users can upgrade with confidence knowing that their computer will run smoothly thanks to the latest drivers and updates required for a perfect upgrade.

 

Why Updating Drivers Is Important


Usually the only reason we look to install or update drivers is because something is malfunctioning. This is not the only reason you should keep your drivers up to date however. Canon is constantly tuning and improving performance of their i i900D printers and the only way to make use of this is by having the latest drivers. Going online and checking for new drivers all the time can be frustrating and is not an effective use of your time, and a simple tool like the driver installer above can keep all of your hardware running on the optimal drivers with top performance.

Sometimes when new hardware is installed, although it works correctly, other hardware which interacts with it may not be, because the other hardware actually needs its own drivers updated. This kind of co-dependency is another common problem and a reason why it's a great idea to have a tool that is constantly monitoring the state of all of your drivers and updating appropriately so you can upgrade and add or remove components in your computer while continuing to run without a hitch.

When your i printer is relatively new, it may be possible to download individual drivers directly from Canon without incurring additional charges. If you are having problems locating the correct drivers for your Printer printer, or are unsure of the exact model, we suggest you run a system i scan first. It's very important you know the exact model of your Canon i i900D printer you would like to update to ensure that it will function properly and to prevent possible damage to your system.
