    This can be fixed by following a simple workaround in your Mac where all you need to do is to setup your printer once again as default printer in Mac. Just follow the below mentioned steps to complete it,

    STEP 1: Select the apple icon from the desktop screen in your Mac.

    STEP 2: Go to System Preferences -> Select Print & Fax.

    STEP 3: If you see that the padlock in bottom left is locked? Then just click it once which will ask for the password and enter the password and Click OK.

    STEP 4: Select the “-” button to remove the printer which you have synced and use the “+” button to add it again as the default printer.

    Now try to give the print from your Mac to the Canon printer which should work without any error or problems now.
