I printed to this new inkjet wirelessly a few times a couple weeks ago, but simply can't anymore. 


Windows 10 sees the printer, and its properties, and shows a print queue where every document eventually stalls because the printer is in an "error state". Rebooting hasn't solved the problem. The troubleshooter hasn't solved the problem. Turning off/disabling WSD in the printer and in the computer (and even removing that key from the registry) hasn't solved it. I can get ink levels, LAN info, etc. etc. but simply cannot print.


I've removed the printer as a device and reinstalled it, completely, and even let it install all the extra crap that Canon bundles in, like printing coffee mugs and getting template layouts for baby photo frames or whatever those services are.


I've run the Canon and Microsoft troubleshooters. They've turned up nothing. Its drivers are the most recent ones from Canon - the only ones from Canon for Win10 64-bit.


My Android phone sees the printer, over Bluetooth. It can change settings and get maintenance info including ink levels etc. but simply cannot print. The SELPHY app gets as far as sending a document, then just spins while small red text says "Check the printer".


To ensure the wifi signal is strong enough I've moved the printer to exactly zero feet away from one of the network mesh nodes. Its signal strength shows up in the IJ Network Device Setup Utility as 100%. The connection with my computer is also at 100%. 


My eero network sees the printer and correctly identifies its MAC address. It shows a solid connection.


Just to make sure the thing can print at all, I used one of its built-in apps to print out a Sudoku puzzle from the cloud. It printed just fine.


Any ideas at all? I've spent over three hours doing nothing but try to fix this, and have absolutely nothing to show for it. Short of getting a human from Canon support to help me, I can't find any other option but printing sudoku puzzles or sending this thing back to Amazon and finding some more functional printer.

I don't print WIFI so I am throwing out some guesses.


Disable and Re-enable your spooler service.


Set a static IP outside the range of your router's DHCP addresses. You can get your gateway info by typing ipconfig /all at a command prompt. Also it will give you the subnet mask which should be

Also, if you do not have Fast Startup turned OFF, turn it OFF. 


All sorts of perverse errors that resist correction can occur if the hibernation file used by Fast Startup gets corrupted.


Control Panel, Power Options, Choose what the power button does link.  Then on the page that comes up activate the Change settings that are currently unavailable link then UNcheck the Fast Startup checkbox then hit the Save Changes button.
