The default passkey is "0000". Try that unless you selected a different code when setting up the printer.

For information on setting up a Canon printer for bluetooth, go to this link. In the search window in the center of the screen, type "bluetooth" and click the Search button. Select the "how do I print directly from a PDA. . ." and you will find directions for setting up the printer. Note that your PDA or cell phone must be compatible with the OPP or BIP protocols. (Check the specs on your unit.)

With my MX850 printer the bluetooth setup instructions were only in the on-screen printer manual, not with the bluetooth adapter, and not with the printer documentation.

In my case it didn't help as Windows is not discovering the bluetooth adapter for some reason.

My MP500 has a normal flat USB plug in.  Turn off your printer and just try plugging in a normal USB cable into that slot...You can use the printer cable if you want. Haven't rec'd the BU20 yet, but don't think it will be a problem.

I find that if you are having any issues the best way is to connect the printer directly to the router ( this works with printers that do not send a signal to the router in the first place ) and this will allow your PC to send the signal to the router which will in turn pass it on directly to the printer because it will be joined up with a cable . I know its probably not the preferred method but it should allow you to print and sort out any issues . Depending on your system you might need to install a app that will allow you to do this , they are free and available on the google store.

Here you can download drivers for Windows:


There is no specific driver for OpenOffice, once you will install driver above, your scanner will work will any office product.

Twain is the scanner interface program on the computer. Something is missing from the install or the XP system software. Double check to make sure you're installing an XP-compatible version of the scanner software. The program for newer versions of Windows likely assumes the presence of some software components that may not be there in XP unless the install program puts them in. Without those missing pieces, Twain won't load properly.
