Does this printer scanner scan to save to the computer and if it does how do I do that.


What OS are you using? How is the all-in-one connected to your computer. To scan to the computer, you need to install the full software package (if it is available for your OS). If only the OS drivers are available, you will be able to save scans. However, you can only initiate the scan from your computer. Additionally, if you have the all-in-one connected to a print server (or router USB port), the scan features will not work. (The scanner requires two-way communication with the computer and can fail if you use a USB hub, bad cable, or a long cable. Thus try a new cable of less than 6' in length if you can't launch a scan from the computer.)

Next: use the Canon software (MP Navigator EX) and initiate a scan. You will need to adjust some settings to make sure that the program knows what program to open when you press the scan to computer button. The monitoring software will need to be running to identify the button presses. To set this, select Preferences, then the Scanner Button settings tab. Select Actions and then choose Save to PC in the Event drop-down menu. Use the first scan to set the default scan preferences and destination folder. Then click OK to save the settings.

If you do not have the MP Navigator program, use any scanning program on your computer. For Windows 7 and 8, there is Windows Fax and Scan that can work with the MP252. The Apple Macintosh has a similar program. Third party software will also work (Nuance's PaperPort, for example).

See page 318 in the Advanced section of the manual (available from Canon) for screen captures of setting MP Navigator. http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/Consumer_Products/products/Fax__Multifunctionals/InkJet/PIXMA_MP_series/PIXMA_MP252.aspx?type=manuals .

I hope this helps.

How do I scan a document?


Do you have the full software installed or just the basic driver from Canon? What OS are you using? http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp240#DriversAndSoftware has the software and drivers. If you installed the OS driver, you should uninstall that, disconnect the data cable and then install the driver from Canon. The generic OS driver usually only runs the printer.

Place the document face down on the scanner glass or face up if you have an ADF. Check that the all-in-one and the computer have good bi-directional communication. (Direct USB connection (if you are using that), replace cables if the printer works but not the scanner and the Canon software is installed.)

If you are using the Canon software, you need to set up the destinations for the buttons and have the monitoring software running. Thus start scanning from the computer at first. Launch MP Navigator and then click on the type of document you want to scan. Find the resolution and contrast that works for you. Use these in setting the button defaults (see the manual from Canon). Then click Scan.

Alternately, with Windows XP, Vista and Win7, you can scan with software that came with the OS. Paint is available on all of these OS versions (File > Import from camera scanner > from scanner). Vista includes PhotoGallery which works like Paint (this can be downloaded for XP and Win7). Vista and Win7 also can scan with Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan).

When you have the MP Navigator properly set up, you will be able to launch a scan from the printer. Press the Scan button and the software will launch.

I hope this helps.

Hi I need to scan a document and when i hit scan no action is taken. I have the MF4150 and im using it on a mac thank you


This unit does not scan with the Mac OS. The only available functions are: Print/PC Fax. The drivers are here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/imageclass_series/imageclass_mf4150#DriversAndSoftware . Use the drop-down menu to select Mac OS X. Note only Printer and Fax drivers are available.

To the best of my knowledge, you need to run a Windows virtual PC with the unit installed to that virtual PC or a second computer running Windows to get the Scan functions. For the virtual computer option, you will need a licensed version of Windows, the Windows version of the drivers from the above link and a program like Parallels.

I wish that I had better news.

No driver for Canoscan FB 630U Vista 64 bit


Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Canon supports this scanner under Vista. Check if the Windows generic TWAIN scanner driver will work. The Canon software won't work. If the generic driver can be installed, then you should be able to acquire scans in Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera), Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) (some versions of Vista) or Windows Photo Gallery (IIRC it works like Paint).

I hope this helps.

(Canon wants you to upgrade. I have a different scanner that isn't officially supported past XP and the generic driver works fine. Unfortunately, you can't just use the XP driver in the compatibility mode due to the lack of signed drivers that are required in the 64-bit OS)

Epson problem


Here is the download page

http://www.epson.co.uk/Store/Scanners/Epson-Perfection-4490-Photo/Drivers-Support?supportLandingPage=true

To scan to PC you need to use a prog with twain support the basic one in XP is paint.(start/all progs /accessories/paint/file/from scanner or camera) the scan appears huge but that's just the way paint does it save and open with another prog for printing (eg windows fax and picture viewer) and it wil be printed normal size.

When installing drivers do not connect scanner until told to do so by the install prog.

No printing on Mac OS 10.5.1


Check under the Apple site for this issue. I use Leopard and can copy and print with this machine. I have not tried the fax, however, I assume  it will work. The scanner does NOT work with Apple...at least yet...I am not sure if it is Apple or Canon or both who are at issue for this. As per the post below, the duplex works just fine for me. You may want to consider the possibility of removing the current drivers and reload the one's currently posted by Canon.
Duplex Printing
Apr. 19, 2007
Archon Fung
I figured out how to make duplex printing on the MF4150 work! Canon Tech support says that duplex printing is not supported, but they are mistaken.
Here is what you need to do:
1. go to the Canon site and download the latest UFRII driver (v1.5) and install it
2. in the application, go to page setup and select "Format For:" MF4100 Series [this was what I did not realize]
3. then, when you go to print, select the finishing tab, and then select 2-sided printing.
If you skip step 2, and you application defaults to "format for any printer," the 2-sided option will be greyed out. Other printer drivers do not require this, but the Canon driver does.
