I have a canon pixma MP495, can't get it to scan. I've installed the driver from the canon website, but still no luck scanning. it worked before not too long ago, but now it won't


if you can print but cant scan, your usb is ok. so its either your pc or your scanner machine has the problem. to isolate the scanner machine if it has the problem, try to scan with the lid or scanner cover is open. observe if the "stick" (with the lights and belt attach to it) can move around the glass (left or right or up and down, depends on how you look at it). if its stuck in one side, then you have a mechanical problem. otherwise, check for your pc for some problem. you can check it by installing the printer driver to a 2nd computer and see if that pc can scan or not. if that 2nd pc cant scan too, definitely your printer is defective

Hi, I need your help with this problem: the Canon MP210 ran out of color ink. I have removed both the cartridge. Anyway, the problem is not in the E5 error. The problem is, that the scanner does not work,...


The scanner and the printer are connected together.Both need initialized for printing or scanning.You can't scan if you haven't cartridges in printer and you can't print if the scanner not initialized.Put cartridges back and press and hold the resume button for 5 seconds.If you still have E5 error that mean you have a defective cartridge and you need to replaced.

Printer is not working


The Pixma MP210 does not support a wireless connection. It has a USB port. Some wireless routers do have USB ports and can thus share the printer. Similarly, there are print server options that can be connected to the USB port. However, these will not work with the scanner functions of the all-in-one. Also you would need to confirm that the print server you choose is compatible with the Pixma MP210.

The fastest way to print right now is to connect the USB cord to the laptop. Wait for the drivers to be installed and then send the file to the printer. Moving the cable will let both computers use the scanner features of the all-in-one. A manual USB A/B switch might allow you to share the printer with fewer chances for a damaged USB cable. However, these usually don't support the scanner. Scanning requires bi-directional communication between the printer and the computer. A bad USB cable can turn an all-in-one into a single function printer with a direct USB connection.

Once the MP210 driver is on both systems and they are connected to the same network, you may be able to set up the desktop as a print server for the laptop. This will depend on the OS on both systems. Something like the Windows Homegroup easily allows printer sharing when enabled for systems with Windows 7 and newer on a private network. Both systems need to join the same homegroup. One system starts the homegroup. Then you have to type in the password on the second computer. This works even with one system connected to the wireless network and the other connected to a wired port on the router.

On Vista and XP, you could enable printer sharing as well in the Network and Sharing center. See https://www.wikihow.com/Share-a-Printer for the steps With Windows OS versions, the scanner functions will only be available on the computer with the direct USB connection.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the OS versions on both the desktop and the laptop if you need more specific advice.

Using my scanner


The installation software you installed with your MP210 should have a program call "MP Navigator EX". It is quite easy to use and very intuitive. You can control all scanner functions through it.
