If you do not have the software, you need to download the software from one of the following locations:

Official Canon Drivers and Software

Canon USA:DRIVER & DOWNLOADS

After downloading is finished, unplug the printer USB and run thesoftware that you downloaded.
The software installer will tell you whento connect USB.

Canon Pixma MX850 won't scan - says 'set the pc to start scan'


Do you have more than one PC connected to the scanner? I have both a PC and a Mac connected to it, and I think my scanner is trying to connect to the Mac, which requires image capture software to be installed, rather than the PC. Don't know how to tell it to go to the PC, though...

Computer says Orinter is Offline but is connected. Has the Fax button highlighted. Only have Copy, Fax, Scan, Memory Card to select from, which one should be highlighted for printing from connected PC


In order to print from PC you should choose COPY function. To check the connection between PC and your printer perform these steps:
  • Right click on printer driver name (Canon PIXMA MX 850 in this case)
  • Choose Properties
  • Click on Maintenance tab
  • Click View Printer Status: the status should ONLINE in order to print or scan
If still Offline,please recheck USB cable,reinstal it,or compare with another cable.

Cannot receive auto faxes


This is a known problem with the MX850 - Canon thinks it works, but it needs to be FAX Only when you're out of the office and TEL PRIORITY when you're in the office - then you hit "Hook" when you hear an incoming call as a fax tone. It's a manual answer machine when in TELEPHONE Priority

Can't receive faxes directly to my PC using Canon Pixma MX850


If you did not install Fax Services within Windows it will not allow you to receive faxes unless your have other SW that came from the factory with your machine.
