You should have a power lead that you plug into the mains (5 amp fuse) and the back of your printer. The other lead should be a USB 2.0 cable that plugs into the back of your printer and into the usb port on your computer. If you go on to the Cannon web site, you may be able to download the manual, it may be in pdf form or winrar. I trust this information will be of help.

My computer was reset. I lost the ability to scan with my Canon mx310. Help!


Check your cable connection then see if your computer identifies new devices. If you have a disk for a driver for that device install that, otherwise do a google search for a driver for your product and download that.

I have a new Windows 7 PC and downloaded the MX310 software from the Canon website, but I can find the scanner software on my computer.


if the drivers were installed properly then yo can scan your documents manually by pressing scan button on machine.
you also need to install other applications alongwith drivers for other operations like scanning etc. you can download drivers/applications and manual from here

How to scan a document using Canon MX310 to Microsoft Word


you can try it by using the scanner option on the control panel. If you are using windows operating system, go on start menu, select control panel and double click scanners & cameras. Double click the scanner online and start scanning the documents. Save it in the format you want but it is usually default as jpeg.

scanned documents usually saved as .pdf file if you run the scan option directly on the printer. By pressing the SCAN button the printer. So do not use this option if you do not want the documents to be saved as pdf files.
