Q: Need driver for Old Printer - Canon BJC-2100 for Windows 7

Windows Update installed my antiquated Canon BJC-2100 Printer on my Windows 7 pc.  However, I think there is a problem with the driver since nothing print.  This printer is normally in good working order.  It performs all functions and maintenance but nothing comes out on the paper.  I have good cartridges in it.  I hate to have to toss this printer as it does a good enough job for my needs.  Does anyone know where I can get a good driver for this printer.  Canonusa.com does not provide a driver for Windows 7.  Thank you in advance for any help/info you can give me. 

Answer

A:

Drivers are made by Canon. Their site doesn't have Windows 7 drivers, but it does say the printer is compatible with Windows 7:

Try the Printer Troubleshooter

3. In the search box, type troubleshooter

4. Then click Troubleshooting

5. Under Hardware and Sound, click "Use a printer"



If the manufacturers website does not have Windows 7 drivers, try using Windows Update to install printer drivers:
