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:

How to scan a document on the laptop


You will need to ensure you have installed the cannon software correctly, as it comes with a method for scanning to the connected computer.

The Software you are looking for is
MP Navigator EX, it has an option to "Scan/Import" this will fire up the Multifunction scanner or just pressing scan on the multifunction after the software is installed will be sufficient.


So Drivers & Cannon Software are required
MP240 series MP Driver & MP Navigator EX

My Cannon Pixma MP500 multi-function printer randomly scans only part of the document on the glass. Sometimes it does get it right; that is it correctly scans the whole page, but very often, the scan...


Try to adjust the scanner resolution

Solution: Adjusting Output (Scan) Resolution (Windows) - MP150 / MP170 / MP450 / MP500 / MP800 / MP950

Adjusting Output (Scan) Resolution By changing the resolution, you can set how clear the image is going to be.
The higher the resolution, the clearer (but the larger) the scanned image is.
The resolution can be changed before scanning. (Note)
If the resolution is doubled, the image data will be quadrupled.
If the data is large, problems such as slow processing speed or lack of memory may occur.

To change standard scan settings using MP Navigator, click here

I have a cannon MP 160 printer/scanner. It does not work on a Mac


Uninstall all your drivers (and delete the preferences) and download the Mac drivers from this link. The drivers that came with your printer were developed before Snow Leopard came out.

I press scan but nothing happens I scan on cannon Mp 160 and I cant scan with my pc


Make sure the scanner is connected to your laptop/PC before you press 'scan' and is turned on.
Pressing the scan option will start Canan's software MP Navigator for scanning. You can also start MP Navigator on your PC and then start scanning directly from your program or from the printer button.
