Canon printer not recognized

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.print_fax (More info?)

I have a new Canon MultiPass C755 printer/copier/Fax, and I have tried
everything in the world to get it operational with my Dell PC (running XP.) I
keep getting an error message that the computer "cannot communicate" with the
printer, and even switching to different and new connecting cords has not
helped.
The printer itself seems to be fine, far as I can tell, but the PC just
won't recognize it.
Any ideas?? Much appreciated.
