Canon MP480 won't scan.

I installed the drivers and can't print and make copies.  I have the device hooked up through airport extreme.  When I try to scan, it says that it can see the device and that I should check the wiring.  What is the problem?

    When i try to scan in a picture it keeps saying Set the document on the platen glass. I keep doing that and it still wont work....any solutions?

    It seems as though this printer just isn't designed to work with an airport extreme, which is odd given that they are offered at a promotional price when buying a mac. But I've looked all over and there don't seem to be drivers out now to correct the issue. WIll just have to plug the printer directly into your computer and bypass wireless printing, for now... hopefully

    I'm also trying to scan using Airport Extreme and found this question because I had the same problem loop. The workaround I found is to use an SD card and scan to the card. It's a hassle, but it works for now.

SOURCE: canon mp 830 will not scan but will print

Uninstall the software and reinstall. Use an ethernet cable and try scanning. If that does not work then your scanner feature has a problem. Probably very expensive so I suggest you go to the Epson site and look under Clearance. New/Refurbished have a 1 year warranty, replacements are quick and free shipping both ways. A All-In-One is $45 shipped, the ink costs more than that. Check this website for CISS system which saves lots of money.

You need to carefully clean the encoder strip. It's the clear strip behind the carriage that runs all the way from right to left. A damp Q-tip should remove any grease or fingerprints.

How do I fax with my Canon MP480?


As far as I can tell, you don't. The MP480 can print, copy, and scan. It doesn't connect to a phone line and hence doesn't send or receive faxes. See http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp480#Overview

Can't print to mac wirelessly (could do it a few days ago)


I had the same problem until recently. You have to install the drivers FROM THE CD that came with the printer, instead of selecting the drivers from the default list. Then, when selecting which printer driver to use (you'll have two options) choose Canon IJ and NOT Canon MX310 series. This is a problem with their MX310 driver, which is solved using a default/generic Canon InkJet (hence, the IJ) driver. Hope this helps!
P.S. This only works on Mac OS X. I have yet to figure out how to print wirelessly through Vista. Will keep you posted.
