No pages found error on iMac MG7120

I have an MG7120 that is directly connected (via a hard cable) to my iMac. I downloaded the most recent drivers and installed them without any problems. The printer was easily recognized and set up as my default printer. Now whenever I attempt to print I am getting the dreaded "Stopped - No Pages found" error message in the print queue. I have totally reset my printing system on my iMac. Then re-downloaded and installed the drivers yet again and then re-added the printer. Once again everything went fine but still getting the error message. I have tried doing all of these steps a total of 4 times and can not get the printer to complete a job. I know this seems stupid and the re-install should fix it so any help would be greatly appreciated cuz I'm stuck. Thanks in advance!

Re: No pages found error on iMac MG7120



Thanks for the reply, I will give this a try. Just to clarify, when you say to "reinstall" the printer are you saying to NOT download the newest drivers from the Canon website? When I first attempted to install the printer I got a message on my iMac telling me the "software was not available from the servers" for installation (normally Apple has this stuff readily available so not sure why this is the case).  This is why I went to the Canon website to dowload the drivers in the first place. Thanks again for the help, I truly appreciate it!
