Question

Canon iR1018j

Hello, I have Canon "iR1018j" Printer and Scanner. I have a problem with connectiong this Printer/mfd to a PC. I have windows 10 based operation system and every driver I download from Canon is not recognizing my device when I connect my printer to Pc over usb. Printer is a little bit older modell so it does not support network. Things I have tryed:
- Downloading drivers from Cannon.
-Trying manually adding Device under "Devices and printers" by selecting Virtual Usb 000.
-Searching for any other driver on windows update option ( No new driver found ! ).
-Trying putting compatibility to win xp/7/8.
- Using multiple usb cabel.
- Tryed the tipps that Canon gave with trying to plug usb at proper time.

And nothing worked, can anybody that has expirience or same printer maybe answer my question

Some maybe neccessary info :

Modell of my notebook : Acer aspire 5560G
OS: Microsoft windows 10 Home - newest update.
Updated BIOS.

http://community.usa.canon.com/t5/Office-Printers/Canon-iR1018j/m-p/222983 echoes my thought on this one.

Someone else has to try their laptop to this printer. The USB port could be blown and only another person can test that as you might only have one PC.

I did post a reply

But the reference link held it up. In short, test with another PC and what if the port on the printer is blown? Only one way to tell.

How?

I am sure usb ports on my pc are working properly. How do I check if the port on the Printer is broken? Anything else then another PC, becouse I am sure ports are fine.

You may be stuck with Canon's service.

I can't guess why the usual test is not possible but once in a while folk can't do that and it must go back to the maker.
