Hi, Anyone advise please?. Recently changed my computer for a faster system along with a newer branded printer (from Epson to Canon), computer previously Win7 64 bit this one Win 10 64, updated Graphs Card. I profiled my printer to a number of papers in Win 7 but now after attempting two differant papers the colourmunki keeps showing a RED line on the first strip ( I did manage to get it to run correctly on strips 1 and 2 but then again on 3 it showed a RED line then would not see line 1 again), changed the USB to Colourmunki cable but still the same, I also profiled my monitor and worked fine. Thankyou, Russ.

One thing I can suggest is trying every USB port on your machine.  My ColorMunkli Photo is sensitive to which USB port is being used.  Mine won't even power up unless I plug it into a USB 2.0 port and it actually seems to like the aux port on the back of my keyboard best.  I can tell it has something to do with power levels: the ColorMunki seems to draw a lot of power and I surmised that maybe some ports can't supply the amperage needed.  I know Jose Rodriguez had the red indicator problem in one of his videos recently and fixed it.  You might also want to ask him on his Facebook group because I don't know what solution he came up with:
