I managed to get my N656U scanner working on Vista. Download the latest XP driver software ScanGear_65_v5.7.1bEn.exe from the Canon download site. Also download the scangear toolbox file ScanGearToolboxCSv223.exe. Execute the ScanGear_65_v5.7.1bEn.exe file and it should unpack the file in a temporary folder (C:\temp maybe) leaving a file N065U.INF which is the driver. Unplug the USB wire and plug it back in and Vista should go through the motions of recognizng new hardware. When it asks for a disk, browse for the INF file that it dumped in the C:\temp folder. After that it takes the driver and installs it (mine was successfull), and you should hear the scanner motor kick in. After that, install the ScanGear Toolbox software and reboot. I tried all sorts of things (including writing a nasty note to Canon to vent my frustrations with their obsolete hardware) that wouldn't work until I did everything in this sequence. Of course Canon won't admit this will work, but it did for me and my N656U works fine now as it always did for XP, except the button to initiate the scanner does not work. You need to kick the scanner into action using the software or some imaging software "Acquire" or twain option usually found under "File" menus.

My MX922 printer worked well this morning. All cartridges have ink but ALL lights under the cartridges are on and print comes out blank. There are no error codes or anything abnormal displayed


This problem is mainly happens to all inkjet printers. If your printer print blank pages then please at least once go to official site of Canon and check whether there is any printer/scanner drivers update is available or not. If yes then download it. Also check your ink cartridges. Because if there is no print on paper that means your ink might be dry.Sometimes it clog the print head. If your ink cartridges get dry change it. Or you should clean your printer's print nozzle by using printer's control panel. I hope all these suggestions helps you. If doesn't then watch Canon MX922 Manual English

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...


When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.
