I'm the latest to join the conversation on the Canon MX922 issues. For several months I was happy with my new printer and even stocked up on ink. I spent hours today reading through this forum and I keep shaking my head that this problem has been discussed for years! and Canon has yet to give a diffinitive solution.
I was glad to see that there have been some MAC solutions but those of us out here with Windows 10 are still looking. I tried the many suggestions, and have removed and reinstalled software several times, but still no lasting solution.
I too will be looking for another printer (not a Canon) because I really didn't want to settle for the USB cable method and hope to find a workable wireless printer.
Canon, you sure don't know how to support your customers or how to keep them happy!

I have a Canon MX 459 HARDWIRED to my PC WIN 10 and this solved the problem:
Push the OK button on the printer Twice ( You'll hear the printer beep ) BEFORE you send a document to the printer. ( Also make sure you don't have anytning waiting to print in the printing Que ) This wakes the printer up and it works every time for me.
I tried this fix on my daughter's MX479 hooked up to a MAC that is on Wi-FI but it didn't work. When I hard wired it to her MAC it does.
Hope it works for your model too!
I'm AMAZED that Canon can't come up with a simple "Wake Up and Reconnect" Option for WI-FI.
