Question about Canon PIXMA MX310 All-In-One Printer

Scan function won't work with Mac OS10.5.5 & Airport

I have a Mac OS10.5.5 and an Airport Express to be able to use all-in-one wirelessly. I have no problem printing, but have not been able to scan.
I downloaded the Canon ScanGear for OSX and followed the online MP Navigator EX instructions on how to launch the scan from my computer. When I pressed "Scan" I got the following message:
"Cannot communicate with scanner. Cable may be disconnected or scanner may be turned off. Check Status. Scanner driver will be closed. 155.5.5."
Does this mean I can only scan with the mx310 connected by cable to the computer rather than connecting to Airport Express?

    This is happening to me too. What is the solution. I've followed all the Canon directions and they don't seem to solve the problem. Is there a problem with the Airport Extreme?

    How do I fix this without moving my desktop to the Canon MX310 location?  I got airport in order to separate the two devices.  I have an imac with mac os x 10.4.11

I have a new macbook pro OS 10.5 and installed a new HP L7590 all in one printer. Same problem. Called Apple and they confirmed that they do not have a driver for the Airport Express to allow scanning wireless. Therefore, SOL. If want to scan, then have to unplug from APE and plug into laptop. My solution is to use a USB hub and mount close to desktop so I can easily remove my HP and connect to laptop to scan often (or buy a cheap flatbed). GARY

I plugged the printer cable directly to my laptop instead of trying to scan using the airport wireless router. Plugging it in did the trick.
Thank you,

My airport express is showing a blinking orange light but mac still wont discover it


In order for your airport express to work, you have to wait for a green light to appear. I had this problem as well and what I learned was to unplug the airport express for 30 min, reconnect it, and the green light should show after a few minutes of it blinking orange, and you are good to go.

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya community.

Please try download and Install MacTube Player to play Youtube video or music... Let me know the result please...

Also to play the music in stereo receiver please follow below steps.

  1. Plug in the Apple AirPort Express into a power outlet near the stereo. Connect an audio cable from the audio port on the AirPort Express to the audio in port on your stereo. If your stereo has a different sized audio port than the 3.5 mm one on the AirPort Express, you will need to use an adapter to connect it.
  2. Plug in an ethernet cable from the AirPort Express to your computer or wireless router for a wired connection. For a wireless connection, connect the AirPort Express to your existing home network, or use a computer with a wireless network adapter to connect directly to the AirPort Express.
  3. Connect to the AirPort Express with your computer as directed in the manual to run the setup with the AirPort utility. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  4. Open iTunes and play the music to your stereo. There should be a pop up in the lower right corner after you run the Airport utility.
Let me know how far you could able to reach in a result. Our expert friends are here anytime to solve your issue.

Thanks once again for joining us.

Have a good day.

Air port express keeps dropping signal from the mac.


What OS are you using on your computer? early versions of Leopard had airport problems. Make sure your software is all up to date. Also a possibility that your airport express is going bad.

Airport Extreme Bases Station not detectable with utility


This depends... Reaching them wirelessly may be unreliable for a number of reasons, so, I'll proceed on the assumption that you are attempting to test in the simplest lowest-variable situation:
First, make sure that you have the latest Airport Utility for your Mac.
Connect your Mac to the Airport via a single Category 5 (or 5e or 6) cable. Factory-reset the Airpot and then wake up the Mac. If the utility still can't discover your airport, it's probably time for a trip to your local Genius bar as you most likely have a hardware problem.
Lather, rinse, repeat for each of the two airports.

My airport express base station is not recognized by my computer


If your AirPort Express stops responding you may need to perform a hard reset.

To perform a hard reset press and hold the reset button for 5 to 10 seconds.

Does HP laserjet 1020 work with Airport Express


I removed any printer configurations for this printer in both my pc and my mac (both usb and wireless). Then I restarted both computers and added the printer via usb again to each. At that point I went back to the extreme configuration and under the printers tab it was finally seeing Hewlett Packard Laserjet 1020. After that, adding via Bonjour went smoothly on both platforms.

Airport settings in Mac leopard


Make sure your ADSL router has wireless capability or wireless function. Verify that from your Internet Provider. If your ADSL router doesn't have wireless function, you need to buy a separate wireless router then cascade it to your ADSL router, from there your airport must be working fine.
