Canon printer problems are no different from those of any other printer, and often occur at the one moment you wish they didn’t. There are a few common problems that occur with Canon printers, and most of these can be solved in a matter of minutes without any major concern. The first problem that many people overlook is that their printer may not have a problem at all, it may just be out of ink. While printer ink can be expensive, it is important to get good quality ink and make sure it is topped up at all times. In some of the newer printer models, the machine will automatically tell you when you need to re-order ink. When you do get the ink, you should consult your user manual on how to properly install it, as this can cause problems down the line if it is not done correctly.
Another common issue that people chalk down to canon printer problems, are actually just paper being jammed in the printer. This is a regular occurrence with many printers and happens when the paper jams when it is about to print. It is important not to panic when this happens, as your computer will usually remember where the printing process was at the time of the problem. Usually the printer will open at the back, where you will be able to examine the problem and remove the paper that is becoming jammed. In more severe cases you may need to take the printer to a repair shop to unblock the jam.
While these are two of the more common canon printer problems, there are a whole array of more technical issues that you may have experienced. It is usually possible to sort these out by looking through your user manual and finding the relevant section, but from time to time you may come across an issue that needs individual help, and in that case we suggest you contact canon printer support directly.
