Canon U.S.A., Inc. has recently become aware of a situation where select Canon inkjet printers continuously reboot or power down after the Canon logo appears if the product is connected to the internet. If this occurs, the printer cannot be used.
When a printer is powered on and connected to the Internet, it will access an external server. Beginning on May 30, 2022, an update in information sent from the external server to the affected printer models resulted in an error that caused it to go through a continuous reboot or power down.
On June 7, 2022, the matter was resolved.
Note: If the printer continues to reboot, turn it off or unplug the power cord from the printer. Wait up to ten seconds, and then power on the printer.
▆ Recommended Action
Although the matter is resolved, we recommend that the affected printer models’ firmware be updated to help prevent risk of reoccurrence.
Below are options to update the firmware on the affected printer models.
On nearly all the affected printer models listed below, the firmware can be updated from the printer’s operational panel while it is connected to the Internet. The printer’s display will typically indicate when a firmware is available for updating via the operational panel.
See the table below to confirm if this option is supported by your printer. If supported, click "Yes" under Option One for your printer model in the table below. This will take you to Canon’s knowledgebase article for detailed instructions on updating the firmware.
For printer models whose firmware cannot be updated via the operational panel, the Remote User Interface (also referred to as Remote UI) can be used for this purpose.
See the table below to confirm if this option is supported by your printer. If supported, click "Yes" under Option Two for your printer model in the table below. This will take you to Canon’s knowledgebase article for detailed instructions on updating the firmware.
Alternatively, the firmware for each of the affected printer models can be updated immediately using an updater that is currently available on Canon’s website. To use the updater, see the requirements listed below. Please click "Yes" under Option Three for your printer model in the table below. If the website does not automatically detect the computer’s operating system, select it from the Operating System drop-down.
v Requirements for Option Three:
Affected printer models and link to its respective firmware update procedure:
(Update Firmware from Operation Panel)
(Update Firmware using Remote UI)
(Update Firmware using Updater)
PIXMA MX490 / MX492
Note: If Canon determines that additional models are affected by this situation, we will issue an updated Service Notice.
If you have not already done so, please register your Canon printer at MyCanon. By registering your product we will be able to notify you via email of any future announcements regarding your product.
This information is only for residents of the U.S.A. and its five territories. If you do not reside in the U.S.A. or its five territories, please contact the Canon Customer Support Center in your region for registration purposes.

Danny, are you all fixing this issue? Your printer is now worthless and clearly due to some issue with Canon. I use printer (pixma 110) with my iphone only so your fixes are not helpful. How can i use with my phone

Given all the posts about this topic it might be good if this was posted at the top of the board like a "sticky".

I have the same issue with a Canon maxify MB5050. Is it possible to produce a firmware update for this printer (my os is ubuntu 20.0.4 LTS) ?
