Question about Canon PIXMA MX310 All-In-One Printer

2 Answers

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 202 doorbell does not "react" if the button is pushed AFTER my neighbor unlocks his car by using his remote key. Can I change the frequency range of the doorbell?


look for a cover that has small switches under it. You can change frequencies there. You must match the door button the same way .

My Epson WF-3640 is printing with gaps in the text. How do I fix this issue?


Make sure you should remove shipping tape from the ink cartridge. These taps are used to protect printer during shipping but you have to remove it before starting printing. Beacuse these taps prevent the ink to entering in print head. If you will not found shipping tape in your printer then there is terr off strip, remove it. The tear off strip seals the the vent holes on the top of the cartridge to prevent it from drying out on the shelf or during shipping.
After ensuring that the shipping tape has been removed, run the printer's "Head Cleaning" utility to prime the cartridge, then print a test page.

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...


When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.
