canon MG3200 - printer not responding




My printer won't print anymore - it gives me this message error: "printer not responding".
I've tried to fix it via the troubleshouting, restarting, reinstalling the driver- and all what's written in the manual online- 

but nothing. It's one month old so it's quite new. 


No error displayed on the led panel.


What's the next step I should take to fix it?


Thank you


It used to work,
no sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't
takes me half an hour of restarting , pressing reset for 5 seconds ,
restarting my computer until something works.

will get another,
probably not be from Canon, but from some company with experience in computer accessories and not just cameras.


I have the same issue! I am even able to print from my phone but not my computer. I have uninstalled & reinstalled too many times, I am really annoyed.

Yeah. I had this problem. I had a lot of problems with this piece of...well this model of printer. I found the best solution is to throw it to the floor and smash it into bits so it will fit in the garbage shoot. It is not only very satisfying but it solves all your problems with this printer. I am so glad this printer was a freebee, included with the purchase of my computer. Thank God I didn't pay for this awful computer.

Erratum...should read 'this awful printer'
