    Outstanding video. So much better than what I had to work with with my last printer (HP).

    When I hit the ON Button, it does not light up, but the blue light on Copy does… HELP. Great Video…

  5. Ana Talos says:

    that's awful. that tiny blue button does not exist I've been trying for a year and a half to make this thing work wireless and it doesn't work.

  6. Vittorio Viglianesi says:

    Mine refused to set up. I have two old laptops (windows 7). I found going into the printers network setup and disabling both Wirelss LAN DRX setting and IPv6 Settings got it working.

    Thank you for this video. After searching for days for the solution to my MX922 and Windows laptop communications problem, I found my answer in this information. The MX922 is a wonderful home office printer. Having used the printer for several months successfully, I was at a loss when it stopped working when we moved. I knew it had to be human error on my part. I’m so happy now. My home office is up and running smoothly thanks to this video.

    This was a great help! I do want to add that if you have a C000 code and it will NOT clear, check and make sure all your printer cartridges are tightly seated. We had already given up on this one and bought a new printer, but I just didn't want to give up on it. (Plus I had just bought $85 worth of ink that was unreturnable!) I decided to take out the cartridges and one was not snapped in all the way. Cleared it up and reinstalled. Works great. Honestly, the best little printer I've had and I print a lot.
