Canon mp470 I can not get my canon mp470 to scan. the quick start guide is useless at best!!! I have done exactly what it says to do and the screen on the printer appears as if the machine is scanning but it is not making any noise or showing an end result. What do I do?

DRIVERS ... first uninstall all the drivers, disconnect the device from the computer, shut down both devices, DO NOT CONNECT the Canon but start your computer. Let the computer run for about 10 mins. so that it has a chance to see that the Canon is not there. Shut off your computer and connect the Canon. Let your computer try to find the Canon but select YOU load drivers. Goto Canon web page, download latest drivers. MAKE SURE you look closely at the OS, etc....(x64) vs (x86) and also the # of the script drive. Know what driver you need for your system and download that wether it is #5, #5.1, #6,,etc...sometimes it will tell you on the device box. Download the drivers needed and install, you may be asked to restart your computer a couple of times, this is normal. Once all drivers are installed and computer is restarted for the last time ( as prompted), shut off computer and then start your system ( computer ) back up.

I am having troubles scanning pictures. When I press the scan button, nothing happens. How do I scan my pictures to go onto my computer?


My MP470 scans best useing this method: click start, click all programs, take Canon utilities, take MP navigator EX and Mp navigator EX again, scan/import should be chosen, if not choose it, have your pic on the platen and click photos/document, on the next screen click scan, after scan make selection from screen, click save, make selection as to where you want to store your pic. Browse and choose "my pictures" if no other desire. good luck and have fun.

I have a cannon 160 printer but when I click on it, the screen to ask about scanning or print doesn't show.


I have a mp470. Try this before the driver download. Click Start, click all programs, select Canon utilities, select mp navigator, click on mp navigator again. On my pc this opens a window where I can select Scan/import from the platen or from a memory card. If this does not work here is a link to Canon to get your drivers. Note: turn off and uninstall your MP160 before installing the new drivers. Select your operating system from the list and select your desired drivers.

I also have a mp470. Try this before the driver download. Click Start, click all programs, select Canon utilities, select mp navigator, click on mp navigator again. On my pc this opens a window where I can select Scan/import from the platen or from a memory card. If this does not work here is a link to Canon to get your drivers. Note: turn off and uninstall your MP470 before installing the new drivers. Select your operating system from the list and select your desired drivers.

Canon MP470 will print and copy but not scan


The same thing happen to me. I have Windows XP. Try using the Scanners and Cameras Wizard.

Connect the MP470 to your computer, have it on and place the item to scan onto the scanner.

  • Go to the Start Menu
  • Click on Printers and Faxes
  • On the left of the screen there is an area titled, "Other Places"
  • Under the Other Places heading, click Scanners and Cameras
  • Select the WIA Canon MP470 device(double-click) This should open the Scanner and Camera Wizard.
  • Click Next and you will be taken to the Choosing Scanning Preferences screen. Here you can select picture type. If you click the Preview button your device will scan your item and display it in the preview box. Otherwise click Next.
  • Click Next to name the file, choose a file format and where to save it.
  • Click Next and your device should scan your item.

I have a printer MP 470 cannon, but I want to be able to scan documents but cant. What do I need to do?


You must have the Canon program "Scangear" (which is a twain driver) installed. Then follow the instructions on page 31 of the MP470 series Quick Start Guide. The guide can be found here:

Canon printer MP470: I have never been able to use the OCR. Can you tell me how to click, click, click to do OCR? I go to MP Navigator/ One Click/ OCR/ then it says specify program where scanned...


Dear Tom,

No problem, you're a mere 17 steps away from creating a high-quality document using Canon's cutting-edge OCR software!

1. Load doc onto platen.

2. Press "SCAN" button.

3. Make sure "DOCUMENT" bar is yellow and press "OK" button.

4. Make sure "SCAN TO PC" button is yellow and press "OK" button.

5. Press "BLACK" button (w/ white diamond on it) located under the word "START" (might take a couple of tries as this button tends to stick a little.)

6. On computer screen, find image of doc that was just scanned and select it by clicking on little check box under image so a check appears. MAKE SURE NO OTHER DOCS ARE SELECTED AND/OR DE-SELECT THEM NOW.

7. On computer screen, find "double chevron" bar in lower left-hand corner and click on it.

8. Click on "EDIT/CONVERT."

9. Click on "CONVERT TO TEXT FILE."

10. This will bring up a new window. Click on the "blue arrow" with "1-2-3" next to it, located in upper left-hand corner of computer screen.

11. This will bring up a new window with three buttons to choose from. Click on the middle button, which says "PROCESS ALL UNRECOGNIZED PAGES"

12. This should start the OCR process and bring up a new window.

13. At this point, I just hit "CANCEL" and highlight & copy the OCR text by myself. (This will allow you to get around the "SPECIFY PROGRAM" program you referred to in your post.)

14. Then I open a new doc in Word (or whatever word processing program you use) and paste it directly into the new doc.

15. Then I save it into whatever folder I need to save it in.

16. Make sure to read through the doc and correct any OCR typos and/or "artifacts."

17. Save one more time to make sure you don't lose your work and you're done!

OPTIONAL 18th STEP: Open a beer and do a big bong hit -- you've earned it, soldier!
