Hey Yasmin,

I had the same problem.

I installed the MP Navigator (MP Navigator Ver. 3.03 (Windows 7/7 x64/Vista/Vista64/XP/XP x64/2000/Me/98) from the canon website (http://support-au.canon.com.au/contents/AU/EN/0900173112.html) and then I released the scannerlock (http://www.fixya.com/support/t5363070-trace_release_scanner_lock)
and then I could scan! Not only through the printer itself by pressing the (<I>) button but also through the MP Navigator program. When I pressed the (<I>) button on the printer, the scanned document would be automatically saved on the computer in a folder of MP Navigator.

Hope this helps you!

Esther

Does the computer see the printer? If using Windows, open Printers folder, and see if the printer shows up. When printing from Word, is the Canon Pixma 210 an option to print to? Double check the cables and re-seat the cables (Disconnect, and reconnect) does the computer make a sound when disconnected, and reconnected? Please let me know if any of this was helpful, or if you have more info that may help with the issue.
