I've removed and inserted that the printer twice, but no avail. I was able to print into the wireless printer however, perhaps not today. Additionally, restart printer and Mac, but my strategy is not choosing the printer. What am I overlooking here tell me in order my Canon printer gets online and also help me to resume printing?
