Canon Support Sucks

Is it OK to vent a bit of frustration in here about the Canon support.  I went to their e-mail support for my Pixma MG5422 Printer since my Photoshop software can not find the scanner  after upgrading to Windows 10.  I filled out that long form with my e-mail address, phone # etc. etc. Model and serial #'s etc. etc.  Everything worked just fine until i hit the "Submit" button.

That one didn't work.

I guess Canon figures that typing it all out would relieve your frustration...but thewy don't want to hear about it.

Same problem here. I enter in the details of my issue, [tried submitting it] but the submit button doesn't work. I've tried it in Firefox, and Opera. I cannot submit the support request.

Re: Canon Support

I have a Canon Pixma MP250 and I use a Compaq Presario CQ57, I use Windows 7.

Since I have re-filled my ink cartridges I cannot use my printer as now it isn´t recognised by my PC and it doesn´t respond, and also my Scanner doesn´t work either and I don´t know why, this has nothing to do with ink cartridges.

Please can you help me, when I turn on the printer the light comes on.

Many thanks.

Re: Canon Support Sucks

This is now 2019 and I’m still having the same issue. Filled out the email support form - tried on both my iPhone and laptop and when I click on submit absolutely NOTHING happens.

Re: Canon Support Sucks

Hello, trippydaisy!

Canon USA no longer offers technical support via email for our PIXMA printers. While the email support form is still active on our website for some camera products, it won't allow you to "send" an email if a printer product is selected. We apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience this may have caused you.



Our technical support team can still help you out over the phone by calling 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666), Monday to Friday from 8AM to 8PM ET. They can provide you with step by step troubleshooting and if that doesn't help clear the error message then they can explore other options with you. 

We're confident that they will be able to help you out!

Re: Canon Support Sucks

I tried to get advice about using a new Imageclass MFP with Windows Vista 32Bit.  The phone support had an insanely long wait period.    The online chat kept trying to send me to a paid just answer support site, even after I specifically stated I did not want it (it was obviously all robotic).    I just need technical support!!

Re: Canon Support Sucks

But how can we get printer support?  The online chat refers us to a paid support website.  The phone support has incredibly long wait times.  There has to be a better option.

Re: Canon Support Sucks

I would heave this printer if i hadn't ordered more print cartridges. i have it hardwired to my computer and it still won't print! Very frustrating! I'm not trying wireless anymore- it is hooked up to my computer with cable, but it still won't recognize it! Not sure what else i can do. I've uninstalled the  program, reinstalled it, etc., everything i can think of, but still no go. And, they won't respond. Very bad, sad, customer support. Fix it!
