My old yet reliable PIXMA MG8120 stopped printing for me yesterday after I set up a new PIXMA PRO-100. I'd printed a photo on the old machine before installing the PRO-100 and printing the same photo for comparison. I then went to print the rebate form on the MG8120 and get "Stopped - 'Filter' failed, 1 page" error message. What I've discovered thus far indicates it's the printer's incomatiblity with the newer Mac OS.
Despite being unsupported, the MG8120 did not have any issues with Mac OS 10.15.2/Catalina up until yesterday. The scanner still works fine and the printer still functions for my wife's MacBook Air running Mac OS 10.14.x.
Does anyone know of a way to put back what may have been overlayed during the PRO-100 installation? Or is this a lost cause?
Thanks in advance,
Did you ever find a solution?
I had precisely the same problem - except that i have owned both printers for years. Yesterday i updated my printer driver off the Pro-100 site, and it has taken down my MG8120. (I already lost the scanning function off my current MAC when I upgraded to Catalina...and am able to drive the scanner off my not-upgraded to 64-bit laptop). This is super annoying, especrtially as i just got another ~$75 worth of ink for the 8120 yesterday!!!
I use them for different stuff...and would like to continue doing so!!!
PS: i do love my pro-100
ah yes! the print dialogues are different on the two printers -- you will have to rebuild your favorites on the Pro-100. but the print quality is so amazing!! Assuiming that you are using something like LR or PS, be sure that EITHER you (1) use ICC codes for your paper or (2) if you only use Canon paper, use the print pro plugin ... (but don't do both)
