Problem with printing from new Canon ImageClass MF232w printer


Hi, I was setting up a printer for use at home.


I'm using a USB connection to a macOS Sierra 10.12.16. I've installed the recommended and optional drivers from Canon's website here:


I have no problem with scanning and copying things with the printer, but when I send things to print, it doesn't print. On the printing que, it says that the job is:


Printing - Connected to printer. 


But nothing is happening. What should I do?



Hi EatAndYeet.


It is recommended that you delete the printer and add it back to the window. Please follow the steps below:


1.  Please open System Preferences > Printers & Scanners.


2.  Once the window is open, select the MF230 Series in the left column, and then click the [-] icon under the printer list to delete the printer.


3.  Click the [+] icon, and then select Add Printer or Scanner.


4.  Select the MF230 Series, and then click the drop-down box for "Use". 


5. Select "Select Software", and then select the MF230 Series from the list of printers. Click OK.


6. Click Add.


Please print a document and verify if you receive the same error. If the issue persists, please call us at 1-800-OK-CANON (652-2666), Monday - Friday 10:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. ET (excluding holidays).
