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

Since changing internet provider - wireless broadband, my printer will copy, but will not print from computer or scan. I am picking I need to download new drivers but cannot find Canon MG4160 drivers...


Try using the Preview app on your computer // Also, what happens when you try to print? Before getting too complicated, restart both your computer and printer, and make sure you have the USB cable properly connecting the two. Your printing is not related to changing your internet service provider. Neither is scanning. No drivers are required.

Why can"t I scan from


Many printers simply don't support the scan function when they are wireless.
Check your manual.
You may simply need to hook it up USB to scan.

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.
