6 Troubleshooting Steps to Fix Canon Printer Problems

If you’re facing trouble with your Canon printer as it is not printing appropriately or even turning on at all, then you don’t require instantly replacing it or taking it to the technician.  On the occasion of any technical issues with your Canon printer, you can try a few troubleshooting solutions given below to get your printer back in working condition as quickly as possible. Otherwise, you can call on the Canon customer support phone number to get the assistance of technical experts to resolve your printer problems.



Here’s exactly how to troubleshoot your Canon printer:


Step 1 – Check if your Canon machine has its status lights blinking in a particular form and then see the user manual to make sure if there is a matching error code. Continue with the directions in the manual for how to resolve the related problem or follow further troubleshooting solutions if it’s not showing a particular error message.


Step 2 – Check the electrical cable is inserted into the power outlet, and the USB cable is connected to the PC properly. Unlock the top cover of your printer and check it visually to make sure if there is a part of the paper jammed in the paper feeder.


Step 3 – Reboot your system and try to print something new document in case the PC has stopped detecting your printing machine, or the print queue has stopped answering because of the printer software error.


Step 4 – Navigate to the ‘Control Panel’ window on your computer and click the ‘Printers and Faxes’ icon, followed by the ‘Add a Printer’ option in case your Canon printer isn’t appearing on the list. Continue with the on-screen steps so that your PC will take a test to recognize your printer.


Step 5 – Access the Canon printer software and select the ‘Options’ or ‘Properties’ tab. Click the ‘Clean Print Heads’ or ‘Test Alignment’ option, relying on which edition of the program you’re using. Wait for your Canon printer to complete the alignment and then take a test print of documents. Check to ensure if the test document printed appropriately.


Step 6 – Try to remove and reinstall the Canon printer software that is supplied with the printer, and then go to the browser to Canon’s official site and download the recent release of the printer software and drivers. Before downloading, make sure that your PC is compatible with driver version.


Now, you can get a test print to ensure the problem is resolved. If the issue still exists, contact canon printer support phone number for more repairing options and solving the printer-related problems within the shortest time.

Sparks Fraud- Warning about Phone Scams


What you need to know


Scammers have been calling our customers and pretending to be from Spark, in an attempt to gain personal details and then scam money from our customers.

The most important thing to know is Spark will never call you out of the blue and ask for personal details like bank account, credit card, or internet banking details.


How to recognize a scam


The scams follow a few different patterns, but the most common story we hear is scammers call claiming to be from Spark’s technical team and say your computer has issues and unless you sort it out over the phone you will be disconnected for weeks or even months. They may ask you to:


- Turn on the computer and look through the computer’s logs
Go to a webpage (such as Team Viewer) and download remote access software
- Give credit card information or an international money transfer so they can charge you for the phoney services
- They might put a password your computer and refuse to remove it until you pay them.
-  If you think you’ve received a scam call and want to let us know about your experience, you can email us at scamhelp@spark.co.nz or fill out the form below. We monitor the details you provide us in your emails and use them to block scammers where we can, or if appropriate share them with the Police.


What if I already gave my information to a scammer?


- If you have shared bank details, call your bank immediately to let them know.
- If you have shared any other details, make sure you change passwords for your computer, email, or social media accounts.
- If you’ve done anything on your computer at their request, then you should immediately disconnect your computer from the internet.


How to avoid being scammed


Be very cautious about providing personal details, particularly banking or credit card details, to someone who has called you out of the blue. If you have concerns about the call’s legitimacy or if you feel uncomfortable, hang up. Some other helpful tips for keeping yourself safe are:


- Make sure to keep your software and anti-virus programmes up to date.
- Don’t use the same password for your online banking, email, and social media accounts.
- Change your passwords regularly and don’t go back to old passwords –always set up and use a new one.
- Look out for your friends and family and please spread the word and share ways to keep safe.


How can I report my experience to Spark?

Review: "Strong Signal" (Cyberlove, #1) by Megan Erickson & Santino Hassell
Strong Signal - Megan Erickson,Santino Hassell

"What did scare me was the possibility of Kai not wanting me in person. Of him realizing how stoic I could be. How I tended to hold things close to the vest. How overprotective and paranoid I got sometimes. When he realized that I'd fallen in love with him via the Internet while across the world."


Well, wasn't this just bloody lovely.


When I started this book for the first time a couple of months ago, I kinda lost interest and put it down (it wasn't you, book, it was me). But today, I know the reason why:


The universe was trying to tell me to wait for the audiobook.


Because it was AMAZING. Big A, Big MAZING.


This was my first audiobook with dual narrators, and Guy Locke and Eric London where just perfect for their respective roles. They absolutely nailed it. I think I'm spoiled rotten for all future audiobooks to come.



Sometimes in my reviews I provide a plot recap, but I think at this point, almost everyone and their mothers have read this book already: Twitch streamer twink with social anxiety builds an online friendship (later relationship) with a muscled soldier hunk who's stationed overseas in Afghanistan. Great premise, very imaginative and unique, 10 out of 10.



One thing that I just absolutely LOVED in this book was the fact that Kai and Garrett didn’t just jump right into "filthy webcam sessions" (blurb's words, not mine), but they took their sweet time to get to know each other. To comfort each other. To TALK to each other. OVER THE COURSE OF SEVERAL MONTHS! Two gay guys who actually talk first before jumping into bed, now imagine that. But don't you fret my dears, there are still enough shameless dirty scenes later on where they are getting their absolute freak on. With a lot of hot dirty talk, I might add.



I only subtract half a star because I liked the first half of the book better than the second one. Once the guys meet in RL, the story dragged a little for me.


But it was a great story nonetheless, one that felt real and somehow still magical at the same time.

„Or was it because…in the billions of people on this shitty planet that I’d never be able to meet in person, the Internet had handed me one person who seemed to be absolutely perfect for me?“

Thraxas Under Siege (Thraxas #8)
Thraxas Under Siege - Martin Scott

Title: Thraxas Under Siege
Series: Thraxas #8
Author: Martin Scott
Rating: 3 of 5 Stars
Genre: SFF
Pages: 272
Format: Kindle digital edition







Synopsis:   Spoiler


Turai is besieged by the orcs. Everyone, including Thraxas, must pull duty on the walls. At the same time, it gets out that there is an artifact that can raise storms and it is missing. If it falls into the hands of the Orcs, Turai is doomed. The head mistress of the Sorcerer's guild hires Thraxas to find said artifact. He is also hired to find 14,000 gurans of hidden treasure, the finders fee which will enable Thraxas to get in on a high stakes card game. Because hey, being under siege doesn't mean life has to stop.


While this is all going on, it is deep winter and the winter malady is hitting people right and left. Sometimes a little to close to Thraxas's circle of acquaintances. The book ends with the orcs over running Turai and Thraxas dragging Makri and Lisutarius into a boat and escaping.



My Thoughts: 

Thraxas is dense. There is no denying it. People literally falling ill, with no symptoms beforehand, as soon as they step into the Avenging Axe and he doesn't suspect a thing? Throw in that an orcish sorcerer named Dazeez the Unseen is known to be out and about and you have to roll your eyes.


This was exactly like the previous books. Thraxas complain, Thraxas eats and fights, people harass Thraxas, Makri prances around in her chain mail bikini, Thraxas ignores said spectacle. Thraxas solves some of the issues and not others.


The card game was the highlight for me. In it Thraxas is playing against an orcish sorcerer and other high lords of Turai. The stakes are Makri's hand in marriage or the storm artifact. What a game.


The ending was ok.  It could either be taken as the end of the story and series, or just a temporary set back. In the omnibus edition, this is the last story but i know there are 2 more, as I have them in my tbr list. So I'm wondering if Martin ended the series and then picked it back up again. I am glad to know that there are more Thraxas stories. We all need more stories about fat gluttons who are more worried about their bellies than beautiful women. Even beautiful women who fill out chainmail bikinis :-D

Review: "Fierce & Fabulous" (Sassy Boyz, #1) by Elizabeth Varlet
Fierce & Fabulous - Elizabeth Varlet

*** DNF at 61% because of CHEATING! ***


Note: the cheating wasn't completed, but only because Ansel's hookup freaked out when he realized that Ansel was a guy. Ansel would have totally gone through with it though.


So fuck this shit!
