First, make sure that the power is on. If needed, open the front cover and open the paper output tray. Open the paper output cover and wait for the ink cartridge carrier to move to the right. The ink access door should open automatically when the cartridges are in position. Push down on the cartridge lock lever until it clicks; the lever forms a U-shape in front of the individual cartridge. The Black cartridge is on the right. Color is on the left. Pull the old cartridge straight out. Prepare the new cartridge and gently push it into the cartridge slot until it touches the back of the slot. Push the cartridge lock lever up until it clicks to lock the cartridge into place.

I hope this helps. See the pictures and video clips here: https://support.usa.canon.com/kb/index?page=content&id=ART137790 .

  1. Unplug the power and the USB cables from the printer.
  2. Open the cartridge door and hold down the power button.
  3. Reconnect the power cables while still holding down the power button.
  4. Close the cartridge door and release the power button. The ink cartridge is now reset.

I DON'T KNOW. I HAVE HAD FREE ADVICE WHEN CALLING CANON. CONSIDER TURNING OFF PRINTER,
REMOVING CONNECTORS AT PRINTER FOR HALF A MINUTE, PLUG IN CORDS AND TURN ON PRINTER.
IT MAY RESET ALL. REINSTALL INK CARTRIDGES, LOOK FOR PAPER JAM AND RELOAD PAPER. PRINTER MAY REQUIRE YOU TO PRINT PAGE TO ALIGN PRINTING etc.

You go on your computer open the start menu and go to devices and printers. Click on it. Click on your Canon Mx320 icon. Then it will say scanner management and you click on Scan Photos or Documents. The printer is just waiting for you to do it from the computer. From there you can preview the scanned photo or documented.
Press "OK" in the printer as well.

CANON HELP LINE RECENTLY POSTED. 1-800-828-0294 - MY PIXMA HAS A SMALL SCREEN BUT NO LIGHT. I WISH IT DID. I DON'T LIKE GETTING ON MY KNEES TO READ THE DARN SMALL DARK PRINT.
IF I ONLY WANT ONE COPY, I JUST PUSH THE 'OK'
BUTTON A FEW TIMES THEN THE BLACK PRINT ONE.
I DON'T BOTHER READING THE DARN THING IF I DON'T HAVE TOO. I DO HAVE A SMALL FLASLIGHT NEARBY - I USE SOMETIMES ;-))

Tip

Fix Error Code 6000 and C000 on Canon printer


When there is an error code 6000 or C000 on a Canon printer, do not rush to go through the reset or any magic "press button" things. Even if you clear the message, the problem won't go away and the message will reappear. The message 6000 and C000 refer to an obstruction in the printer. Usually something on the way of the carriage unit. It can be a dirty timing strip which needs a cleaning, but most of the times it will just be a pieced of a ripped paper or any other object inside the printer. The tricky part is that it will usually be at one or the other end of the printer. Take yuur flashlight or flashlight app on your phone and shine some light inside your printer. I almost guarantee you that you will find something!
This will apply to all Canon pixma Inkjet printers!
Some are MX922, MX925, MX927, MX928, MG5320, MG5220, MX452, MX870, MX712, MX722, MX892, MX882, MX860, MP620, MP620B, MP630, MP640, MP600, MP800, MP610, MP810, MX950, MG5420, IP7220, IP3000, IP4000, IP4200, IP4300, MX830, MP830, MX452, MX472, MX432, MX452, IP2920, MG5220, MG5120, and many other models.

download driver for Mac
download on mac install on mac .
apple should find the printer if MAC is connected to same IP network once the driver is installed .

don't download from a windows p.c !
must be a MAC to get correct file system for Mac .


might also need scanner software

I have actually installed networked printer on an Apple System and as long as MAC and printer are on same ip network it should detect the printer once the driver is installed on the MAC
