“MX922 Printer in error state.” SOLVED! (at least for me.)
Had this problem for a few days. Tried to solve it myself. Rebooted laptop, re installed printer drivers, turned it on and off, rebooted router, etc. No luck.
Called Canon service. Technician led me through various procedures. We isolated problem to a router port issue, not the printer or the laptop. He emailed me information to help solve the issue with the router manufacturer and/or the internet service provider.
(By the way, you CAN print a ‘test page’ straight from the printer without a computer by going through the MX922’s own menu to its ‘Set Up’ screen. It has a pix of pliers, screwdrivers, etc. Then you must click down through to “Print LAN settings”. It is buried three or four screens deep in the ‘Set Up’ sub-menu.)
After all this, I opened a Bitcoin account and had to consult a credit card account to do it. My security program, Bitdefender, interceded with its own secure pages. I ran a scan after this transaction just to see if the security software had found anything on the laptop since the last time I checked. It didn’t, but informed me I had to update it. Which I did.
Then voila! Suddenly the MX922 started printing out the official Canon test page the tech and I tried to print out earlier. I tried printing out another document. It printed too!
The updated security software had found traces of a hotel’s WiFi that I had been using earlier in the week. I’m guessing the hotel’s WiFi had changed some things around and Bitdefender must’ve set things straight again.
So, it you get a “Printer in error state” message, it might be because an unsecured Wifi connection you may have used had switched your laptop's communication ports around.
