What error message(s) do see?

How are you connecting: USB, network (wired), network (wireless)?

If USB check the USB port and the USB cable - try another working USB cable.

Does the Canon E400 appear in Device Manager? Is the Canon set as the default printer?

Try a "do over" and reinstall the printer drivers - very easy to miss something or make an incorrect selection during the setup and configuration process.

What software application are you trying to print from?

On your laptop: can you get to the printer controls via Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers?

By software application I mean any program that can print. Could be that some program changed the default printer.

Did you get the error code when you attempted to access "Devices and Printers"?

I googled "Error code 0x80071A90" - only time for a quick look at things but the code does not seem applicable. Could be a failed update....

Please google the code to see if any of the results you see relate to your computer and its configuration.
