Try New Technology

Notepad, LibreOffice, Excel, Word, Print Test Page, etc. crash when printing to Canon MF8350Cdn on Windows 10 Pro (64bit)

Environment Details:

  • Windows 10 Pr 64bit
  • Wired LAN
  • Latest print drivers (as of today)
  • Canon MF8350Cdn

ISSUE: When printing from a LibreOffice app, Nodepad, Excel, Word, the Print Test Page button of Printer Properties the application hangs/crashes and never prints. Reloading drivers and rebooting didn’t help. Below are the steps I took to fix it after stumbling across a similar post for another Canon MF model.

SOLUTION:

  • Click the Windows button
  • Click Settings
  • Click Devices
  • Select printer (ie Canon MF8300 Series UFRII LT)
  • Click the Manage button
  • Click Printer Properties
  • Device Settings tab
  • Change “Spooling at Host:” from “auto” to “Enabled”
  • Click Apply, then OK

Should work perfectly now – at least did for me!
