imageClass MF 654 error codes 99, 852, 853


Hello.   When my mother tries to print using her MacBook Pro (OS Ventura 13.6.6), the following error messages: 99, 852, 853.   Her print jobs are in a waiting loop and eventually disappear.   I have to print off her stuff with my Windows 11 laptop.   

What do error codes 99, 852, and 853 mean and how can I fix them?   TIA.

I don't have access to failure codes, so a call to Canon Support would be worth the time to see what the agents can come up with.

There is the possibility that the codes might be found with a Google search, but that is just a guess. 🤔



These errors are related to communication.  Jobs stuck in the print queue, etc.  

Please share the following information with us:

What is the printer connected to?  How does it communicate with the MAC running 13.6.6?  

Which drivers were installed for it?

Thank you for responding.

It is connected to our home's wireless network because there are no printer cable connectors for this model.    I would have to check the name of the software driver I installed into her MacBook Pro.
