Question about Canon PIXMA MX870 Wireless Office All-in-One InkJet Printer
Printer pop-up screen for my MX870 shows "Pause Printer" button @ top at same time showing "Printer Ready" on printer icon just below. In this mode printer won't print. If 'Pause Printer' button is clicked it changes to 'Resume Printer' & icon below changes to 'Printer Paused'-in which case printer still won't print. I'm totally unable to print.
Hello, sounds like your drivers are messed up, reload them to the computer or the connection cable maybe bad. If neither of these fix then the printer is bad.

The parallel port cannot be used for printing by default. Heaps of people have made this mistake. You need a N Boot Rom installed and N system software. Almost certainly you don't.
Get a Network Multi PDL Printer Kit C1 for IR3300 (contains N Boot Rom and NIC aka ethernet port). A technician can install this and update system software and you will be able to print. You will be able to print over a network (which is the preffered option) use Remote User Interface and Pull Scan using Canon Network ScanGear (google it).

I don't have a permanent fix for this because I'm here looking for the same resolution. However, I have found that if you unplug your printer give it a bit and then plug it in, you can then "search" for printers and print stuff.... only for a bit though.
