Question about Canon PC-860 Black and White Copier

1 Answer

Wireless I have a canon 860 copy machine. Can I turn it into a wireless printer/scanner? How? My goal is to use the internet and cell phones instead of the telephone company lines. If there is any thing you can suggest to help along those lines, I would appreciate it. I have an online fax service, so I get my faxes on my computer, but I need to scan documents into the computer to send out.

Printing you could do through a wireless print server. The other day I hooked a copier up into customers office using this device Netgear device:

By plugging the ethernet connection from the copier into the ethernet port of the wireless adaptor. I was able to use it as a scanner. Now the wireless print server was converted into a wireless access point. It's works quite well.

NOT SCANNING OR COPYING


These problems occurs when the scanner is unable to take a copy of the image that you are trying to scan.You can go to settings and run a scanner motor test on the scanner.Just check out the results of the scanner motor test.If the scanner motor test results are positive,then please clen the scanner bed with a cotton cloth and then perform a power drain on the printer.
Now in order to perform a power drain you need to keep the printr powered on n unplug the power cable from the back of the printer.And then press the power button down for 30-50 secs n then release it.Then plug in the power cable n turn on the printer. The scaner will respond. But if the scanner motor test results are negative, then the scanner needs to be fixed by a hardware technician

Before you go to your friend's, download the Watcher program from Sierra wireless onto a cd. And install it instead of the AT&T Connection MGR.

For random disconnects and difficulties signing on with ATT Communications Manager

download the watcher program @

Canon pixma MX310 scanner not working


I read somewhere that the printer/scanner must be plugged directly into the computer in order to scan.  I tried it, and it works.  Printing can be done wirelessly, but apparently not scanning!

Error code 5010


I got the error code 5010 today (scanner lock switch). I called Canon. The printer's electrical circuitry (brain) needs to be refreshed. This is similar to wireless routers and other devices. They directed me as follows: 1. power OFF the printer 2. Unplug the printer's power cord from the electrical source. 3. Wait AT LEAST 1 minute - no less than 1 minute. 4. After 1 minute, plug-in the printer to the electrical source. Turn on the printer - wait for it to warm up as usual and it should be ok. Mine worked perfectly after the above steps. - Hope this helps.
