I haven't any idea what happened. This is a new printer for me, a TR680a, and it was working fine, I use it on a desktop with a USB hookup, Windows 11. Then about 10 days ago, I went to print, and nothing. I tried all the usual suspects -- checked the port, printer spool, troubleshooter, hard reset, uninstall/reinstall,the printer copies so it's working fine, my PC is just not picking up on it anymore. In frustration I started playing with the PC end of the USB and it worked -- I finished the one project, then it didn't work again, so I figured the cord was just old and cranky, I had to get a new one. I did today. Nothing. I don't know what else to do, please help!!
Isn't there anyone who can help me, I've never had an experience like this before. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the software AGAIN, everything checks out fine, I go to print, it doesn't print I get the error message in the queue and I cancel it, and it says deleting, and it just stays there. I can't make it the default printer until this leaves, but even then, this stuff keeps happening, it's insane, everything checks out, but the printer just won't pick up on the PC communicating with it, but it did a week ago, please, anyone??
After going through the ninth circle of hell repeatedly, I ONCE AGAIN, uninstalled and reinstalled my printer, tried to print, error message in queue, won't go away, and it won't let me make that printer my default. I have two icons, one for my TR8620a, and another for that but it also specifies FAX. Neither one works. Under devices, neither one appears, but under the printer shortcut, both did. My PC started designating the Microsoft IPP Class Driver as the default, so I said, never mind what I said, I designated it in Word, and it printed. I printed stuff off the Internet, and it printed. It also scans. NOW when you go under the printers shortcut, it just says TR800 series, and it's sort of greyed out. It works, I thank God, but intellectual curiosity has its demands. Can anyone explain this to me, I've never seen anything like it, usually hooking up the printer is the least annoying part of using tech (and of using the printer.) Thanks.

See, Danny, I started a new thread because the upshot of my dilemma, which hasn't received any help and very few views, was very different than my original title, Printer Not Responding, figured maybe someone would respond to that and help me understand what's going on, but I know the most important thing is for any forum moderator to taste that power usually reserved for lunchroom snitches and hallways monitors. My "gear" is registered, Canon's knowledge base is as useless as this forum, but enjoy the thrill, and you have one heck of a nice day, too!!!
