Mine was one of the Pixma MX 490 printers that started power cycling off and on on 5/31/2022. I found and applied the firmware update following the directions listed on the Cannon site. Now the printer won't turn on at all.
Anyone have any suggestions as to what to do next?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I tried the firmware update and I don’t get the box show in the instruction for number 4-6. I decide to do away with wireless altogether. I bought a usb cord from Amazon. Here are the steps to go the USB route
Unplug printer and modem
Wait 5 minutes then plug printer back up
Reset wireless network settings to factory default settings
Download your printer Driver CD
(If you don’t have it, you can get it free in Canon website. Search your product and download)
Be sure to use a USB cord and you can print now!!
If you have a Mac go in system preference>printers and scanners> delete the printer by clicking it and press “-“ (minus) button (because it’s looking for wireless connection) then press “+” (add) button and it will add your printer back.
