ERROR: "There are ports that cannot be used with their current settings"


I had to replace the wall my printer was plugged into. (plaster and lathe fell off so I had to replace with drywall.) Printer was unplugged and removed from the network for about a week while the damage to the room was repaired. When I plugged it back in I get the error: ERROR: "There are ports that cannot be used with their current settings"


Drivers are still installed. My computer is a Windows 10 64bit system. Printer is powered on and connected to my home network via a CAT6 Ethernet cable as it was before. It worked before being unplugged and it was not hit by falling plaster as there was a shelf above it that did not move. I have wiped the outside of the printer down with a soft damp cloth to remove dust. I am in the same house and the printer is in the same room it was before. Printer still powers on. It has ink and paper. I am at a loss. Please help.



Printer model is: Canon7720Capture.JPG

That didn't work. I tried that simple, obvious option before I bothered yo seek help. Printer has been replaced with different brand. New printer works flawlessly. I'm done with the Canon brand.
