Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8400 Printer Troubleshooting – Cannot Print Over a TCP/IP Network

The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8400 is built for ultra high quality imaging and exceptional performance and is equipped with an array of professional features. An incredibly large color spectrum is produced by the 12-Color pigment ink set, which also provides better scratch resistance and smoother gradations.

This model prints up to 44” borderless, is equipped with a 250GB hard drive, and a Color Calibration Management System. Color Calibration Management System allows centralized color management of all the x400 series printers on the network, remotely monitor and execute color calibrations for printers, determine the media type loaded in each printer, and read accounting information from each unit as well.

These printers are perfect for large format graphic and Fine Art Prints. In the highest print mode, the ink application is optimized to maintain the best print quality with fewer print head passes, making this print mode twice as fast as previous models. The addition of a 250 GB hard drive increases productivity, by processing print jobs faster and allowing you to reprint jobs directly from the printer itself 

Since most of the time, you will be printing the graphic from your computer or from a central console, it is important that the TCP/IP network is working properly. When having issue printing over a TCP/IP network, below are some of the possible causes:

1. The printer’s IP address is not configured correctly
