Troubleshoot Canon Inkjet Cloud Printing Center

If an app can't be installed:

  • Check the country or region where the printer was purchased.

  • If you take the printer outside of  the country or region where  you purchased it, new apps can't be installed.

  • If the new region supports previously the installed app, you can continue to use it. However, if you uninstall an app, you won't be able to reinstall it.

If the registered app isn't in the Apps list:

  • Check the display language of Canon Inkjet Cloud Printing Center.

  • If the display language is switched to a language that doesn't support the app, the app won't displayon the apps list but will continue to be registered.

  • If you switch back to the default language of the app, it will display in the apps list and you will be able to start, register, or unregister the app.

If the information doesn't update when you press the Update button:

  • Because the Properties screen requires network connection with this product, the information may not update right away. Please wait then try again.

  • If the information still doesn't update, check to be sure the product is connected to the Internet.

If you don't receive the registration email:

  • Printing starts on its own even if you don't do anything

  • You may have entered a different email address when you registered Canon Inkjet Cloud Printing Center
