SOURCE: How do you set up wireless printing w/the canon PIXMA MX700?

Hi Coach!

Here is a tutorial that will explain most of the basic steps to sharing your printer. It will walk you thru how to set it up.
With the Canon, MX700, on each machine you connect to the printer, you will have to have the driver CD. When XP asks for the drivers, just put the CD, and XP will find it drives it need. This whole process will go smoother, if you use a printer cable and not the USB. If you need the drivers, you can get them on the Canon site.
Good luck,

SOURCE: Scanner prints just black sheet

The mystery is solved!!
I live in Norway and my CanoScan 5000F has worked brilliantly until it suddenly started to display a black preview in ScanGear, black scanning and to no surprise,- a completely black printout.
My first thought was that the scanner-lamp had died,- but that was strange because I hadn't used the scanner that much. I hadn't made any changes to my computer system either. The operating system (Windows XP), scanner software and drivers were exactly as before.
I made a new testrun and saw the light come on from the side of the scanner and move along the platen as usual. The sound and operation of the scanner seemed to be all normal.
A quick check on the internet revealed that there were many other guys out there who had experienced the same problem. Some had tried new drivers, uninstalled and reinstalled, but to no luck. I also tried the same method, but was stuck with the same problem.

I have a background as an electronic service-engineer, and this mystery really gave me a good challenge. Why did so many people experience the same thing? Why couldn't Canon answer and give a reasonable explanation to the phenomenon? What was the common factor in all these cases?

Every scanner is connected to the mains via a power-unit. Mine is European standard with type nr. PA-08E. It is labelled with output DC 12V (stabilized!) and a rated current of 1.25 A at this voltage.

I brought the power-unit to my lab for a test. When I measured the voltage without any load (no scanner connected) it read 12 V as stated,- so it seemed to be ok.
But when I connected a load (a car light bulb 12 V / 3 W - equivalent to a current of just 0.25 A), the lamp just barely glowed and the voltage (that should be 12 V constantly) dropped to just 4 V.

This proved without any doubt that the power-unit was defect. It could no longer maintain a constant 12 V during load.

I had a variable power-supply in my lab that could be set to 12 V and connected to the scanner for a test. But Canon had made a very peculiar connection to the scanner by using a rare male power plug (with a center (+) pin inside). Normally a round hollow (female) plug is used on such power-units.
So I cut the DC cable a few centimeters from the power-unit, split the two leads 4 cm apart and dismantled 1 cm of insulation from each end. On my power-unit one of the leads were marked all the way with text, and this one proved to be the minus (-) lead connected to the outer (metal) part of the DC plug.
The two ends were connected to my power-supply (with correct polarity!), and the other end with the DC plug were connected to the scanner. Power-supply was switched on and my computer system was restarted.
I opened the Paint Shop Pro program, clicked 'Twain Acquire' and the ScanGear CS window appeared.
After this insident a calibration of the scanner is required: Close the lid with no document inside, click 'Advanced Mode >>' down right and then 'Settings' / 'Quality' / 'Calibration'. The scanner will do some adjustments for a few seconds and finish when the small calibration window close.
At last my CanoScan 5000F came back to life again. The preview was normal, and the scanned images as superb as they had been before.

Conclusion: Do not throw your scanner away! Buy a new power-unit with DC 12 V stabilized and at least 1.25 A. Brand is not important as long as it is of good quality and correct voltage/current, but cut and use the cable and plug from the defect power-unit as I described earlier. Remember to isolate the connecting area (+ and -) firmly.

Does this printer scanner scan to save to the computer and if it does how do I do that.


What OS are you using? How is the all-in-one connected to your computer. To scan to the computer, you need to install the full software package (if it is available for your OS). If only the OS drivers are available, you will be able to save scans. However, you can only initiate the scan from your computer. Additionally, if you have the all-in-one connected to a print server (or router USB port), the scan features will not work. (The scanner requires two-way communication with the computer and can fail if you use a USB hub, bad cable, or a long cable. Thus try a new cable of less than 6' in length if you can't launch a scan from the computer.)

Next: use the Canon software (MP Navigator EX) and initiate a scan. You will need to adjust some settings to make sure that the program knows what program to open when you press the scan to computer button. The monitoring software will need to be running to identify the button presses. To set this, select Preferences, then the Scanner Button settings tab. Select Actions and then choose Save to PC in the Event drop-down menu. Use the first scan to set the default scan preferences and destination folder. Then click OK to save the settings.

If you do not have the MP Navigator program, use any scanning program on your computer. For Windows 7 and 8, there is Windows Fax and Scan that can work with the MP252. The Apple Macintosh has a similar program. Third party software will also work (Nuance's PaperPort, for example).

See page 318 in the Advanced section of the manual (available from Canon) for screen captures of setting MP Navigator. http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/Consumer_Products/products/Fax__Multifunctionals/InkJet/PIXMA_MP_series/PIXMA_MP252.aspx?type=manuals .

I hope this helps.

How to scan a slide on flatbed scanner


This model Canon MX700 cannot scan slides.
A flat bed scanner that can scan slides and negatives has a light scource that shines through the slide and negative fand is detected by the scanner sensor.
I suggest you purchase a slide scanner, it will be cheaper that getting a new flat bed scanner with slide capability.

Cannot print from Apple MacBook to Canon MX310


First, check your USB printer connection to your Macbook from your Pixma MX310 printer.

If the USB cable is securely seated, make sure you have installed the updated drivers for your version of Mac OS X. Here is the Link:
Canon Pixma MX 310 Drivers for Mac OS X (v10.6/10.5 and earlier).

If you have already updated your printer drivers to the most current Canon Pixma update for your version of Mac OS X, then click on the Apple menu icon, located in the upper left corner of your screen and select System Preferences.

• From System Preferences, select Print & Fax.
• Within the Print tab, make sure you can see your Canon listed in that window.

If you can, proceed to perform a test print on any document you have on your desktop or folder of choice. If this does not help, from within the Print tab, select the Canon and press the "-" Minus button and remove that printer.
• Once it is removed, now click the "+" button
and re-add your printer.
• Once it has been added, attempt to test print again.

This should help get your printer back to printing again.
