Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Missing Canon MP 500 disk

I have an MP 500 multifunction machine attached to my computer. I used to have the MP Navigator program installed with a number of other programs under "Canon Utilities".
I wanted to use this program for scanning some items, but see that it has disappeared.
Unfortunately I have lost or misplaced the disk that came along with the printer/scanner.
Is there any way in which I can replace this valuable program without having to purchase a new printer/scanner?
Thanks for any comments you may have to offer.

How do you get the Canon Pixma mp500 to scan?


Hi there,

Scanning images,
About Scanning images
You can scan images from the machine to a computer without printing them and save them in popular formats. Scanned data saved on your computer can be processed using image processing software. Furthermore, you can use the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software to convert scanned paper documents to text data.

* Before scanning
Before scanning images, confirm the following :
- Are the necessary software (MP Drivers and MP Navigator) installed ?
If the software is not installed, install it.
- Does the document to be scanned meet the requirements for an original to be set on the Platen Glass ?
- Is the machine connected to a computer correclty.
Confirm that the connection between the machine and the computer is physically secure.

Scanning Methods.

A) Scanning Using the MP Navigator
MP Navigator enables you to scan in documents loaded on the Platen Glass and view images saved on your computer or on a memory card. Scanned documents can be previewed and easily printed and edited according to your needs.
You can use the supplied application softwares to edit or print the document you have scanned.

Windows : Double-click the [MP Navigator 2.0] icon on your desktop to launch MP Navigator.
Mac : Select [Applications] from the [Go] menu, then double-click the [MP Navigator 2.0] icon to launch MP Navigator.

You can launch the following application software from the MP Navigator.
* Easy-PhotoPrint (Photo Printing)
* ArcSoft PhotoStudio (Photo image editing)
* ScanSoft OmniPage SE ( Converting scanned document to text)
- This application software may not be supplied with teis machine in some country.

Note : If you did a [Custom Install] and only installed the MP Driver and MP Navigator, these application software were not installed and thus cannot be launched. To launch any of the above application softwares from MP Navigator, do a [Custom Install] once again to install them.
For detailed operations of the MP Navigator, refer to the Scan Guide.


B) Scanning Using the Operation Panel of the Machine
You can scan documents to your computer by using the Operation Panel.
Important : Do not insert or remove USB cables when scanning images with the machine connected to a computer, or when the computer is at sleep or standby mode.
*If you are using Windows XP
The program selection screen is displyed the first time you press [Color] or [Black] on the machine.. Specify the [MP Navigator 2.0] as the application software to use, check [Always use this program for this action], then click [OK]. From the next time, MP Navigator is automatically started.

*When using Mac OS X
For the machine to start scanning when [Color] or [Black] is pressed, you need to set MP Navigator as the starting application software in Image Capture under [Applications] of Mac OS X.

1) Press [ON/OFF] to turn on the machine.
2) Load the documents on the Platen Glass.
3) Select the scan option.
a) Press [Scan].
The scan operation selection screen is displayed.
b) Use Up or Down arrows to select the scan operation, then press [OK].
Scan standby screen is displayed.
Save to PC : The document is scanned and saved.
Save as PDF file : The document is scanned and stored as a PDF file.
Attach to E-Mail : The document is scanned, and the image is attached to an e-mai using the e-mail application software.
OPen with application : The document is scanned and displayed on the registered application software.

4) Press [Color] or [Black].
The document is scanned. The settings configured from MP Navigator apply when scanning.
Important : If with some types of original the position and size of the image is not scanned in correctly, please refer to the "Selecting the Behaviour of the Operation Panel with Mp Navigator " in the Scan Guide (on-screen manual). and change the MP Navigator [Document Type] and [Document Size]] to match those of the original being scanned.
Note : The operation to be performed after scanning the document depends on the scan operation setting you have selected in step 3. For details on how to modify the operation settings, refer tp the Scan Guide on-screen menual.

C) Scanning from an Application Software
You can scan an image from TWAIN-or- WIA (Windows XP only) complaint application software and handle the scanned image in the application software. For detailed operations, refer to the Scan Guide (on-screen manual).

Hope this helps.

My multifunction Canon Pixma MP830 will not scan. I downloaded drivers again but scan button does nothing once "start is initiated"


Will it copy standalone?If it does.
Then it is a software problem or bad cable.
If so you need to uninstall the MP navigator and reinstall without an usb cable attached.Attach a good cable and let Windows install the correct drivers

I just got a new computer, Dell with Windows Vista. I lost the disk to hook up my Canon Pixma MP130 to my computer and was hoping that you could help install my printer, without buying another...


You can download the driver files here. In the Select OS window, select Windows Vista. Download both the driver and the MP Navigator listed under Software. Follow the directions to install the driver and MP Navigator on your computer.

Can't scan on my Canon MP600


What you need to do is go to the Canon driver downloads page and download the MP Navigator. I had the same problem becuse the disc that came with the printer doesn't work with Vista. You have to know which programs to download! You only need the MP Driver and the MP Navigator and all should work!
