Question about Canon Pixma Mg5220 Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color Photo Print
I don't know how to fix the error. It doesnt even tell me what the error is, it just says "error". It might be due to my mac being upgraded to Snow Leopard recently, but I'm not sure.
Try deleting the printer entry completely and add it from scratch.
How to add a printer
To add a USB printer
Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party printers, so simply connect a USB printer and the print queue will be automatically created. If you do not see your printer in the "Printer:" pop-up menu after connecting it, go to the "To add a printer via the Print & Fax preference pane" section below.
To add "Nearby Printers"
With Mac OS X v10.6 you can quickly add a "Nearby Printer"--a nearby printer is a printer connected to the USB port on a Time Capsule or AirPort base station, a network capable printer that supports Bonjour, or a printer being shared by another Mac. Snow Leopard uses Bonjour technology to find nearby printers.
To add a Nearby Printer, all you have to do is select the Nearby printer you want from the "Printer:" pop-up menu:
Snow Leopard will automatically create the Print Queue.
To add a printer via the Print & Fax preferences pane
Control-click the System Preferences icon in your Dock and choose "Print & Fax" from the Dock menu. If the Print & Fax lock icon appears locked, click the lock icon and enter an administrator name and password when prompted. Click the + (plus) icon below the Printers pane on the left to open the Add Printer application.
From the Add Printer toolbar you have these default tools:
Note: Any applications that are open before you add a printer will need to be quit and re-opened, in order to see all the features of the new printer.

Uninstall all your drivers (and delete the preferences) and download the Mac drivers from this link. The drivers that came with your printer were developed before Snow Leopard came out.
