COPY CON doesn't work on today's printers except now rare models. Since this is a printer from 2002 that's a fair life span so it's time to learn about printer drivers as well as think the printer has finally failed.
My mate has a Canoni550 and today it won't work and I couldn't fix it. He has a Lexmark 4300 Scanner attached to his machine and that prints out via 'Lexmark Imaging Studio' on his machine and it prints perfectly on the Canon.
So the printer is okay and the connections must be okay, I guess.
When I try a plain print out of Notepad I get a blank piece of paper ejected - i.e. the connection is okay, the printer is initiated but it sees nothing to print.
When I try a command line 'copy con' I get nothing.
anyone got any ideas what might be the problem or how I should proceed?
