OS not supported...

I have a Pixma MG 5420 printer.  It is 5 years old.  I have used it on my Mac desktop(2009) since I purchased it.  Printer and computer have been compatible until yesterday.  Now suddenly my printer is offline.  I tried several things but ended up reseting my printer, which of course deleted the printer from my computer.  When I tried to reinstall the printer drivers I get a message that my OS is not supported and the drivers will not install.  What the world is going on?

Visit this page

 

Select your version of OSX from the download's dropdown.  Download the compatible drivers for your MAC OS.

 

A word of advice.  I suggest you remove the printer from System Preferences > Printer and Scanners and uninstall any previous Canon Drivers before installing new drivers for your printer.

Rick,

Just want to say THANK YOU for the help.  I had gone online to the Canon website and tried to download the drivers, but obviously I was not in the right spot.  I did just what you said and now my printer is back up and running!!!

Again, Thank you kindly!
