it's very important to connect your MX 300 with the telephone line the right way! Please read once more the part "Preparing the machine for fax" in the chapter "Faxing" of the MX 300 User's Guide and mind the hint "Important: Do not connect the machine and external devices in parallel to the same telephone line using a splitter (A). The machine may not operate properly."

You have set the default printer to the Fax option. Firstly, you could use the drop down menu where the Printer is displayed (when you go to print), and select the "regular" printer as opposed to the 'fax printer". To set the default permanently to the laser printer....go to "printers and faxes" in 'control panel'. You will see a "check mark" next to the 'Canon MX 300 Fax' (or whatever it is called) identifying it as default. You want to put the 'check' next to the "regular printer" (whatever it is called)....'right click' on it, then "left click' on "set as default". Now when you go to print anything, it will just print.
First make sure you download the right driver/software for MX300 according to your OS. Then with the printer connected to the computer u can proceed: press the scan button on the printer then on your pc click my computer and u should then see the printer scanner at the end, right click on that and you will get the scan option.
I too couldn't do it for a bit then kept fiddling till i was able to and I have Windows XP.
Had several other problems with my new canon mx-300 printer. trouble with word perfect and scanner Phoned Canon tech who brushed me off saying trouble was with my driver and not compatible with my computer. Returning it to the store tomorrow and going to pick up a HP
