    I do not have a cd drive on my laptop so I can only download the drivers I can find on net and so far I have not been able to find the entire suite. would you be able to direct me to the correct place to download? Don't find your help very helpful at this stage - waste of $9.99

  • ricelaine Nov 18, 2008

    that is the page I have already downloaded the drivers from. I don't think the problem is a scan lock - it's more that I don't seem to be able to access the program to ask it to scan a document. I can print documents with no problem

Perform a copy to make sure the scanner is working.

Try using the Scanner & Camera Wizard (Start -> Accessories -> Scanner & Camera) (this test is for communication).

If it failed, go to Device Manager (right-click My Computer icon and select Properties, click the Hardware tab and press the Device Manager button). Scroll down and locate Imaging Devices, expand. If it shows, right-click and Uninstall then reboot the computer. If it doesn't, try changing USB port.

Keep in mind that All-In-Ones are two products in one package. The USB port in the printer is like a traffic light directing the signal where to go. Visualize that if the internal link from the printer's USB port to the scanner fails, it is considered a hardware failure.

Check the power. Almost everyone has missed this easy fix at least once. Make sure all power switches are on, all cords are plugged in and any indicator lights are showing green. Step2Eliminate the chance for operator error by refreshing your memory on the operating instructions. If you discover that you have been missing a step in the scanning process, highlight the relevant step in the operating manual and try to scan again. Step3Verify the correct positioning of the document you want to scan, which is face down on the scanner bed glass. Spot clean the glass if necessary with a damp cloth. Step4Double-check your scan optimization settings. Some printers allow you to refine their settings for print only, image only or mixed documents. Make sure you have the right one selected. Step5Make sure you have the right computer destination selected in a network. If you are not in a network, examine the cables that connect your all-in-one printer to your computer. Step6Keep the device’s task manager on while scanning. Some all-in-one printers need their task manager in the toolbar to function properly. Step7Pull up the troubleshooting menu for the printer on your computer for more system-specific remedies.

    Some printer has a scan lock that must be switched to open, to prevent damage during transpor, check on the manual if this is the case.

    To scan you need to install the complete software for your printer, installing only the driver wont give you the software tools to manage the scanner.

    Here is the download page for Windows XP.

    Download and install Easy Photo Print and MP Navigator (at the bottom of page) Software

    Give him my link, I think he cannot read me,

    Another genial Idea from the head office I imagine.

    If you get Fixya I do not complain.

    Better than giving Fixya to some useless poster.

    After downloading the three files (Driver, Easy Photo Print and MP Navigator) you need to install the three software package , starting installation with USB unplugged.

    You start installing driver,

    Then install the other two packages.

    You need to INSTALL after downloading.

    This if you are using Windows.

    If you have Linux on your EEE, that is a completely different matter.

    Let me know.

    I do not think it is scan lock either, Pixma MP220 should not have a lock.

    More than accepting the solution, tell me the following:

    Is the EEE working on Windows XP or Linux?

    See also my previous comment here:

    Remember also that after downloading the software you need to install them.

I had the same problem, and this is the fix.

1. Go to Canon's website and find the "Drivers and Downloads" section. From there, you will need to specify the subcategories of your hardware, and then your specific model (for example: Hybrid (i.e.-Printer & Scanner), Inkjet, MP470 Series)

2. When you find the proper page for your model printer, select your operating system from the drop down list.

3. Scroll down the page. You will see all versions of the drivers and programs to download. Download the latest version of the driver. You should also download the "My Printer" program. This is useful for troubleshooting and maintenance.

4. Keep scrolling until you find the "MP Navigator" program. This is a very important program, and is necessary for the scanner to operate properly. Download this program.

5. One MP Navigator is downloaded, verify that the scanner will use this program when it operates. To do this, go to the Start menu, click on Control Panel, click on Scanners and Cameras, click the printer that you will be using, then click properties. Click the tab at the top that says "Events." You will then see a drop down menu with the options Save to PC, Save as PDF, etc. Verify for each option that your computer is either opening the MP Navigator program, or that the computer will prompt you on which program to open.

This should get your scanner working. Hope this helps!
