Then Canon Pixma MP800 is a both PC- and Mac-compatible printer designed to print lab-quality photos. The device connects directly to your computer, or you may connect an outside camera to the Pixma printer and print the images directly from the camera. But if you run into problems with the printer you must troubleshoot them if you want to regain your printing capabilities.

Check the cable connection of the Canon Pixma MP800 printer. Make sure the USB data cable is inserted into both the printer and the USB port on your computer.
Power down the Canon Pixma MP800 and after a few moments turn it back on. If the printer is on when you first power on the computer, the system may not detect the printer.
Replace the ink cartridges if the ink is appearing smudged or streaky or the colour is light.
Look to make sure the memory card is properly inserted into the Canon Pixma MP800 if you are printing directly from a camera's memory card. If the card is not inserted completely the printer is not able to detect the card and doesn't read the images on the card.
Disconnect the USB cable inserted into the computer and plug it into a different USB port on the system. Sometimes USB ports die out or do not function with the Canon Pixma printer. Changing the USB connection often corrects this problem.
