No error messages appear at all. I use a macOS. Connect to printer via USB. 

macOS comes in multiple versions that can impact how the community directs your next steps.

Tried this and still having the same issue. Any other suggestions?


Do you have the MG2522/MG2525 CUPS Printer Driver Ver. installed?

We look forward to your reply. 

Driver version is currently installed/being used.


When you add the printer in printers and scanners, what is listed for name, kind and type. Does it list the Canon driver being used? 

We look forward to your reply.
