Default Printer Problem

Hi guys I hope I’m posting in the right section i need some help with my printer,

I have a canon S200SPx printer recently i had to reformat my comp a few times because of viruses I think. anyway after the reformat I’ve had problem installing the printer.

I can install all the drivers that came on the CD but when the comp tries to detect the printer it doesn't find anything I’ve even tried the manual port selection and still nothing.

I have also tried to install the printer uses the printer and faxes options in the control panel but the computer does not detect the printer.

If I take the USB port out of the printer or the computer and then put t back i get the sound informing me that something has been conected to one of the ports but no detection of a printer.

My actual printer works fine it responds when i press the feed button. I have tried everything but I just can’t seem to get the printer to be detected.

Any help, would be appreciated.

Send a message via ICQ to daappleby

turn it off, run the install program, once it tries to find the printer turn it on. If that doesn't work try getting a different usb cable. If still no joy go to the parallel port. If it still won't ocnnect then there is problem with the prints communication port and you will need to have it looked at.
