Hi Skormy -- I don't have a Mac so I can't help you, but hopefully someone else chimes in. Perhaps a re-install from the original CD would make the difference, if no one has any better ideas.

Thank you so much for solving my stupid problem. I tried getting the solution from Canon and of course, no such luck. You have been a bit of a life-saver for me! many, ma!ny kudos to you

Oceans of thanks Varice.
After more than one year of working operating panel, I got a "set your PC" message all of a sudden. I checked and found out that the PIXMA was detecting my laptop (with its specific name) and able to communicate with it (receiving the scan orders and delivering the scanned PDF) on wireless. I tried to search my LAN again to detect the error and suddenly the printer did not detect my laptop any longer while kept communicating with it !!
I followed your steps. The only things I needed to do after that were:
1. Restarting the printer, and
2. Checking my laptop was detected (with Save/forward button): it was there once more!
3. The operating panel backed to work again.
It is frustrating that Canon could not address the issue properly and sticked to its nonsense solutions (asking to read the instructions, repeating the very obvious instructions etc). They apparently do not listen to people. Many thanks for your wonderful solution, buddy.
