SOURCE: Canon PIXMA MX870 Wireless Printer works with Snow Leopard OS?

The MX870 is compatible with Mac OS X, all versions. I think the CD that comes with the unit will have the Mac Snow Leopard drivers on it, but if not you will be able to download them here.

SOURCE: Cannot receive faxes on Canon Pixma MX870, but can send faxes

There is also a setting for the ring pattern that the unit uses to identify a fax. Set it to match the incoming ring.

EX: I have a single line and hook up the printer only when I am expecting a fax. I had to change the setting from double ring to NORMAL before it would pick up.

Cannot scan with Canon MX870. Error code 5,145,61 Windows XP Wired LAN connected printer and laptop reinstalled Print/scan/fax S/W - still no scanning. Printing OK. ???


My solution was to open the MP Navigator application and then click the preferences at the top right. There is a product name dropdown. In my case the incorrect MAC address was chosen (denoted by "Network:XXXXXXXXXXX"). Once I chose the other address it worked perfectly.

Canon mx 410 fax answers voice calls


I have an MX870 with the same problem - fax picks up during a voice call and I can no longer hear the caller. As with everyone else, the problem is intermittent and not replicable.
I have tried tel priority mode and fax priority mode (from the phone/paper submenu under physical Fax button) and all the various RX receive setting under Fax Settings submenu of the physical Settings button.
But I have a new possible solution. I only use the fax for outgoing -- for some time now I have been using K7.net for incoming faxes which delivers faxes to my email. That way I have a dedicated fax number, never miss an incoming fax while on the phone, and I have all faxes in electronic form as well.
So, my new idea was to set the MX870 to DRPD (distinctive ring pattern) receive mode (from the phone/paper submenu under physical Fax button). Since my phone service through Xfinity/Comcast does not offer DRPD, I am hoping that the MX870 will NEVER pick up a fax.
I will keep you posted as to whether this works.

I have just installed a Canon MX870 and it won't print - it keeps on saying the printer is offline... I have successfully established a wireless connection and when I go to printer and fax preferences (on...


I had the same problem and just fixed it by opening the Canon IJ Network Utilities and using the tool menu. It turned out that the printer had changed ports and the port was not compatible. That meant that the port it was using didn't have a printer driver associated with it so it couldn't work. As soon as I went into the configure menu and had it try the next IP port, it immediately printed. It's a matter of finding the correct port again or associate the driver the port you are now using.

The status for the Canon MX870 goes to offline without me doing anything and then I have to turn it off and on to get it back online. Is there a way to keep it from going offline or turn the feature (???)...


Just check this. Go to the Printer and Faxes window in the Control Panel. (whether you are running XP, Vista or Windows 7...click Start, look for Control Panel then Printers and Faxes). Look for the printer icon for the Canon MX870. Right click the icon and you will get a little menu. If you see an option that reads: "Use Printer Online" select that. This is typically the problem. If you see an option that reads "Use Printer Offline"...don't do anything with this option and there is some other cause of your problem.

Cannot receive faxes on Canon Pixma MX870, but can send faxes


I was searching for an answer to this to make sure my new MX870 is correctly set to receive faxes. Here's one answer I came across:

First set Tel-Priority, turn off incoming ring, turn on manual/auto switch, then check how many seconds it takes for your answering machine to come on, and set it a couple of seconds after that. This should do the trick.
