For some reason my Canon MX7720 printer, which has worked fine for five years, suddenly won't print. It gives the error "printer is performing another operation". I'm using windows 10. I didn't make any significant changes to the computer before this happened. In an attempt to repair I have:
At this point, the printer is unusable. I've read thread-after-thread that talks about this error, but I have yet to find anyone who seems to have an actual fix.
Incidentally, at one point today, the computer just began spitting out two pages of unprinted paper about every ten minutes, but I still couldn't print.. I have no idea what that was all about. It stopped after one of the reinstalls.

I'm actually connecting through USB (which I have always done).
Interestingly, when I try to print the LAN details, nothing happens. At the "Print LAN details? screen, I tap "yes" and I get a "beep" and the "yes" button briefly highlights, but nothing actually prints.

This morning I re-booted the printer (which I had done before) and for some reason, now it's working just fine. Maybe it heard me saying that if I couldn't get it sorted out today I was buying a new one. Thanks for your help.
