What OS are you using the printer with?  

How are these devices connected?


A few suggestions:


Try printing directly from a mobile device.

Try printing from another connected computer


If these both fail, reset the printer to factory defaults


Uninstall, restart then reinstall the printer.  Retest.

Printer Functions - Canon - imageCLASS MF746Cdw / MF745Cdw / MF743Cdw / MF741Cdw / MF644Cdw / MF642C...


The printer has a 3yr warranty from Canon, you have options if there is indeed a problem.

That error will point to a problem processing the information from the print job it received. To resolve this issue, I would suggest clearing any jobs waiting to be printed and then trying to print again. If the error comes back up, the issue could be caused by the drivers used when printing. We would be happy to assist furhter with the issue. To provide some feedback or some troubleshooting steps, we would need some additional information. If you could reply to this message with the information below, we can provide some assistance.


  1. What version of the Mac or Windows operating system are you using on your computer?
  2. What are you trying to print and what program are you printing from?
