Unable to set Canon MG3150 as a default printer -error code 0x00000709 Operation cannot be completed

Original title : CANON MG 3150 SET AS DEFAULT

I'm trying to set my Canon MG3150  as a default printer on Windows 7 32 bit Home premium.  But I keep getting error code 0x00000709 Operation cannot be completed. Double check the printer name and make sure the printer is connected to the network.  How do I resolve this as I am a home user and not on any network.




Have you made any chnages to the computer prior to this issue?


I would suggest you to try these method and check the issue status.


Method 1:

You may also try to temporarily disable security software from the computer and check.

Disable anti-virus software.


Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you do have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you are connected to the Internet or a network during the time your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.



Method 2:

Open,run the Printer troubleshooter and check the issue status.

Method 3:

Create a new user account and check the issue status..

Create a user account



If the issue is resolved in a new user account then follow the article on how to fix a corrupted user account.
