Panic over works perfectly
This is a discussion on Printing to the new canon printer MG6250 within the AirPrint forums, part of the iPad Help category; Panic over works perfectly arthur...
Exactly how did you get it to work. I have updated the firmware to 2.00 but its saying that their is no air-printer available but it is connected to the network. I can confirm this because i can print from my laptop plus i have printed out the Network configuration page. Any help
I have the same problem. I have updated my Canon MG6250 to the latest firmware (I think 2.0) via USB but still my iOS (5.0) devices cannot find the printer. The printer is directly connected to a WiFi router via ethernet cable and I can I can print from my iMAC (OSX Lion) just fine, which is connected via WiFi to the WiFi router. The iOS devices connect to the very same network and very same WiFi router as my iMac.
To all of you who where able to print with airPrint: How is you network setup? Maybe we can find a key difference here.
Thank you for your help. It works :-)
Just to add some info :
- Nothing to change for me on my ipad
- I had some difficulties to find the update program using the canon website (only results for Mac and not windows and I don't understand why) but using google it was ok tipping that : MG6200 series Printer Update Utility Ver1.1 pour Windows
- Then I faced another stupid problem : the firmware looks like an autoexecuting one but it was not…I had to open it using an extractor soft
- After that I only had to follow the instructions (very clear and available in a lot of languages)
- Note that the printer has to be linked via usb when updating
Note also that the only way for me to have the good info for the question “Do I need to update or not ?” was with the test of Printing the nozzle check pattern (see FAQ: How to Use Apple AirPrint in the uk Canon Website). The info on the properties pannel regarding the version of my driver\firmware was not good.
Pour les francophones qui passeraient sur cette page : oui imprimer avec Canon MG 6250 via airprint sur Ipad fonctionne. Il faut mettre à jour le firmware de l’imprimante en recherchant le fichier "MG6200 series Printer Update Utility Ver1.1 pour Windows" sur Google. L’ouvrir avec un soft type winzip ou autre et suivre les instructions. Il fqut que l’imprimante soit reliée au pc en usb pour la mise à jour. Ensuite on peut repasser en wifi. Voir le test d’impression des buses sur le site de Canon pour savoir si vous devez faire la mise à jour ou pas. Rien à changer sur l’iPad 5ma version de l’IOS : 4.2.1)
Thanks again to all of you .
Nb for bitbonk : I do not know How is my network setup but do not hesitate to explain more if I can help you.
Thanks again to all of you .
I have just purchased the mg 6250 printer. I have it working wirelessly from my lap top. How do I get to do the same from my iPad?
Any direction appreciated, thx
Look for a Canon printing app in the app store. Being a new printer it should be compatible.Originally Posted by Adg
