I've had my printer for about a year and now I'mhaving some issues. I followed the guide to get the printer connected to WIFI even though it was never removed, and I'm getting the e36 error code. I connect the printer to the Canon wifi, then connect the print app to my wifi and the code appears. Very frustrating, but any tips on how to just get this thing to print?
e36 is Easy Wireless Connect has failed.
You also mention "I connect the printer to Canon Wifi".... Does this mean you have named the wireless network in your home "Canon Wifi"? or maybe you are referring to the printer's broadcast which it cannot connect itself to.
Here's what I recommend.
Connect the printer to your wireless network. This will be a 2.4Ghz broadcast from your router. Once the printer is connected to that, any device on that network, a computer, mobile device, etc, will be able to print to it.
Visit this site:
Press the Set Up tile, then expand the section on Wireless Set up. You can choose the method that applies to your situation,
The printer also supports wireless direct printing. This makes it possible to print directly to the printer from a computer or mobile device without a router or wireless network. While this is handy, its not very practical as the printer can only be used by one device at a time, which it has to be associated or connected to. This means you would have to individually connect or associate a device with the printer each and every time you want to print.
Connecting the printer to a wireless router is preferred since this allows any device to print without constantly changing connections. To connect the printer, you will need to know the SSID or broadcast name of your 2.4Ghz wireless network. You will also need the wireless password.
Once connected, you can connect your mobile device to the same network. Now the phone can print as well.
