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

1 Answer

Scanner stopped working with new computer

When we re-connected our Canon MP500 (PIXMA MP500) to our new computer it would not scan anymore. Is this something to do with Windows VISTA or something we just didn't hook up right?

I want to scan a doucument on the PIXMA MP500.


You must have got a CD with the printer. Just install it and load the paper in the scanner and press the scan button on the front panel. It automatically starts to scan and shows you the document. Later it will ask you whether to save it as a JPG file (as image) or a PDF file (document).

My Canon PIXMA MP500 won't scan.


See to it that no other stickers or lock that won't allow to run of read the scanner in your printer.

Usually this kind of settings are very difficult if also you don't read the manual or procedures on how to use it.

If you encounter like this that your printer won't scan. Not for thinking but you send it to Canon Center or Computer Shop near in your place.

Good luck.

Won't scan


The scanning feature is much more sensitive to connection signal strength than the printing function. Make sure the USB connection is firmly in place on both the computer and the MP500. If this doesn't fix the problem I would try a different 6 foot length USB cable.

Scan Not Working


Me too, copy and works fine. When the printer starts up I can see that the scanner moves, the green light is there - all i can see is that maybe it is vista or that i didn't run the set up cd completely. But I put the instillation CD in again and went to http://www.canon.com.au/vista/ and downloaded their driver - now it works fine

Whats shipping lock?


the shipping lock stops the damage in transit of the scanner or printer, there will be a lever on the underside or the side of the scanner/printer or there will be something holding the printing head in place under the cover.
