Canon Printer Troubleshooting

Sometimes, the Canon printer might not respond or work due to numerous reasons. Check the printer manual to determine the error code that corresponds to the indicator lights flashing in a specific pattern. Verify if the power cord is connected to the wall outlet. Open the printer cover and check if there is any paper stuck in the paper feed. If you face issues such as paper jams, ink cartridge issues, vertical lines, print quality issue or any other printer issues, reach our support team on the Toll-free number. We are here to assist you.


  • Make sure the power cord is connected to the wall outlet if your Canon Pixma TS 3122 printer is not responding when the power button is turned ON.
  • Continue to print only when the power lamp stops flashing. When printing large data, photos or graphics images it generally takes a longer time to start.
  • The power lamp might flash when the PC sends data to the Canon printer. Observe the ink tank indicator on the front of the printer to determine the ink level.
  • If the ink reaches the upper limit, it indicates that the ink is full. If the ink is near the lower limit line, it shows that the ink is running low. Replace the cartridge or refill the ink tank.
  • Sometimes, the printer may consume a certain amount of ink to return to printable status if the printer continues to print when the remaining ink level is below the lower limit line. Also, there is a possibility that it might get damaged.
  • If the printer prints for a long time, the print head or other parts surrounding it may overheat. Stop the print session for a while and power off the printer for at least 15 minutes.


  • Restart the Canon Pixma TS 3122 printer if it stops scanning. Switch off the printer and press the Power button to turn it on again. Change the resolution of the scan if necessary.
  • Delete the unnecessary files from the scan folder. This might increase the scanning speed. Avoid changing the file name of the scanned document.
  • An error might display when you update to Windows 10. Uninstall and install the driver software, unplug the power cable from the printer and restart it to resolve the issue.
  • A current version of the driver might automatically install. If you have lost the printer manual, download from this website. The manual may help to fix your issues.
  • In certain cases, issues might occur when sending the files as an email attachment. You can manually add the attachments and send it to the recipient’s mail address.
  • Enable the Status Monitor feature to ON that not only monitors the status of the Canon printer but also provides notification to the system. If the issue persists, reach us on the Toll-free number.
