Scanner won't install on my computer Canon MX300

Just bought a Canon MX300. The printer is working fine but the scanner won't install. It says that it has installed but it hasn't. Looks to me like something is preventing it from installing. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Canon iR1370F printer driver for Win XP - Blocked by Windows DEP

Your expert wanted me to remove all the XP upgrades from the Add/Remove Programs menu (26 files individually) and restart after each one. Upon further investigation, I discovered a much easier solution. I found that Clearing the Block from the Windows Firewall fixed my problem. I clicked on a box "Unblock" in the CAPT Windows Firewall Utility window. Presto I can now print.

I fixed the problem on my own and was not able to use any of the "expert" advice. Please do not charge me for the "help".

SOURCE: how can i get the instuctions to work my scanner

First the drivers need to be installed, then the program you use to scan may need to be told that's the scanner to use.
Your program should then work fine

Usually you get a CD with it that does all that and supplies program for all functions.

U051 error can i disable printer and use only scanner and fax canon mx300


Sadly not. The cartridge error will have to be resolved before you can use the scanner/fax. You do not however have to have a full cartridge installed, the printer just needs to be able to recognise the cartridge.

If you follow the link below, you should choose your operating system, and then download the MP Navigator.
Installing that should allow you to scan with youir MX300

How do you get the Canon MX300 printer to scan? I do not know what all you need for a printer to scan but when I press the scan button it just beeps and nothing happens.


Hİ,
First You must install "MP Navigator EX" program to your Pc..and then you can control every feature of the scanner from your computer..(not from scanner...)
This program normally comes with the MX300 as CD ,if not you can download from Canon support page....Good luck..Regards

I have lost the CD. The printer still works but I need to install it on another computor and I have looked for the CD everywhere . It is a Canon MX300 but I cannot find the serial no. I bought it at Harvey...


Here is a link to Canon for your Pixma MX300 drivers....you will need to select the operating system that your other computer is running, then download and install the software / drivers. Operation Instruction are available on this site too.

Scanning with Windows XP


first make sure the printer is installed to the os, if the cd wont work download the driver from the manufacturer website. then connect the device to the computer so that the scan can actually go some place. i believe this particular model has a scan buitton on the device however i am not so sure so please double check. if it does press the button. if not u have to scan the document with the software installed

Can not use my scanner on my mx300


It assume to be Canon Pixma MX300 Office All in one printer.

It may be due to incomplete installation of the All In One printer. Please check for the Device manager and also reinstall the printer with its installation CD.

Drivers for Linux


I've had to use guttenprint 5 to set up non-supported printers in linux, have you tried that?
I found a fix, though! Simply use the already installed "Canon PIXMA MP150 - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.0.1" driver. It seems to be printing fine. You can copy and fax stand alone still on the unit itself. I guess that we will have to wait for a real driver to take advantage of the onboard scanner. Hope that this helps!
