First check the connections from printer to pc then try unplugging the usb cable then plugging it again then simply reboot the system to refresh the installation, also try re-installing the printer/scanner software that is bundled with your printer, dont forget to reboot after every installation ok:)

I suggest your unplug the printer and then remove the printer and all it's driver from your computer.
Restart your computer and reinstall from your original cdrom plugging in your printer only when prompted by the installation programme.

I have a Windows Vista computer and a Canon MP210 copier/scanner and have a document in printer to scan and can not transfer to my computer, I can't find disk and put information from disks years ago on a...


First, if you connected the data cable to the computer, uninstall the current driver and then unplug the data cable. (This is for USB cables.) To uninstall, open the Devices and Printers control panel (click start and then find the line on the right hand column). Right click on the unit and click on Remove Device.

Then navigate to http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp210#DriversAndSoftware and select your version of Vista (32- or 64-bit). Download the software/drivers. The MP Navigator is the full software and will let you launch scans from the unit once you set it up. The first driver in the list is just the basic driver and will only work with scans initiated by the computer.

Always launch scans from the computer first. There are buttons in the MP Navigator that match those on the all-in-one. The default settings for these need to be set up (see the help in the program) and include resolution and location to save files. Then when the monitor program is running, you will get the MP Navigator coming up with a button press.

Vista can scan without the MP Navigator with three included programs: Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan), Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) and Photo Gallery. Howevver, if you do not install the Canon driver, you will probably get a printer driver only from the OS.

If the problems persist, try a new USB cable and a different port. If you use a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection. Scanners require bi-directional communication with the computer and can fail when the printer works.

I hope this helps.

(if the copy function works, then the above information should help. If the scanner itself is not moving, check for a transport lock and that it is lighting up as it should. In the last case, the unit may need service.)

I dont have the on screen manuals in order to use my Canon Mp210 scanner The printer and scanner are all in one. I put a photo or document in the scanner and turn it on, it seems to be on and ok, except I...


To get the manual go here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp210#BrochuresAndManuals .

Drivers and software for supported OS versions are available here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp210#DriversAndSoftware . If you want the scanner to work when you press the buttons on the unit, you will need the MP Navigator.

If you connected the USB cable and got a generic driver, uninstall that driver and then disconnect the USB cable before installing the software from the above site. This generic driver usually only runs the printer.

There is a monitor program that listens for button presses on the all-in-one. This must be running to scan from the unit. However, the software must be set up with destinations and default settings before the MP Navigator will work with those buttons. Thus you should first launch the software from the computer and learn the resolution and other details to set as your defaults. Place documents face down on the glass or face up in an Automatic Document Feeder.

If you have some versions of Windows, you can acquire scans if the basic Canon driver is installed without the full Canon software. For XP, Vista and Win7, Paint will work - File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan. Vista and Win7 both have Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan). Vista includes Photo Gallery which also imports from the scanner. (For Win7 this is part of the Windows Live free download but isn't preinstalled.)

I hope this helps.

MP210 driver does not work with ASUS LAPTOP WITH Vista


On Canon's support page for this printer PM210 Support there are 3 different driver files available. One is for XP and Vista 32-bit systems, one for XP 64-bit systems, and one for Vista 64-bit systems. If you know what system you have select it in the drop down menu and download and install it.

Scanner not working on Canon MP 210


As for the drivers, go to the following link and then click on the "Drivers and Downloads" tab, then choose your operating system. It should then give you the drivers under the "Driver" heading right below the operating system drop-down box. The software is there as well.
