Question about Canon imageCLASS D480 Black and White Copier

1 Answer

The scanner function on my Canon D480 has not worked since the installation.

The copy/print/fax functions of my D480 has not operated since we purchased it. We have installed the Scanner MF software twice and it still doesn't function. I place something on the glass to scan. Press the Scan button twice for USB Scanning, since the printer is not networked, then press Start and nothing happens...it's as if I never pushed any buttons. I am operating on a Mac with OS software 10.7.5

Go to the scanner company website and see if there are drivers available for download. Sounds as if you may not have the proper drivers installed.

SOURCE: Printing on Imagerunner 210s

depends on which additional function you are trying to do.
You have it as a copier only right now, you can add
duplexer for two sided copies
network for your computer to fax and print and scan
document feeder to put copies on top and feed automatically


There are a lot of options you need to decide which function you are willing to pay for.

Good luck

SOURCE: I AM ATTEMPTING TO USE THE SCANNER FUNCTION ON A CANON IR2230

Firstly, the machine must be connected to a pc or network. Secondly, you must scan the document to a pc so, after you have switched on, as you have, the scanner so that it says 'online' you will need to go to the pc and 'PULL' the document to the pc from the scanner. However, to do this you will need to have installed NETWORK SCAN GEAR on your PC inorder to SCAN. When you install the software, you will need to DISCOVER the scanner before it will be ready for use. So, a recap:

1. You NEED a program called NETWORK SCAN GEAR on your PC
2 Your ir2230 must be connected to a PC or network
3 You need to DISCOVER your ir2230 from your PC
4 You then need to INSERT picture FROM SCANNER and select your ir2230 from within a program such as WORD using NETWORK SCAN GEAR

Good luck

Lexmark X4550 Scanner not working


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

Why our fax sending and receiving solid black


Its a problem with scaner unit. Reports are being printed out, and do not pass trough scaner, because of thath report is Ok.

If the fax is still under warranty, go to warranty provider service.

Next time dont buy "kids toy" for fax machine. Try laser Canon Fax L140.

Will not work with Vista operation system


Correct. There is no easy solution for this issue. Several of the "older" scanners are no longer supported through the Vista operating system. Why not purchase a new multi function printer, scanner, fax and copier unit.. you will not locate vista drivers either online or from the manufacturer and without them, the scanner will not function. Alternatively, you could also roll back or re-install Windows XP operating system..

Can i copy from printer to Computer


No you can't.
Canon Pixma iP45500 is a sigle function printer. That means it just prints to paper.
What you want to do requires a multifunction printer: a printer is also a scanner/copier functions and which which is capable of acquiring an image and transfer it to the computer.

Canon MultiPASS F50 won't copy but will scan


Does the copy function work if you place the document to be copied on the platen (open the cover and lay it on the glass)? If so, check the area to the left of the platen. There should be a strip of glass with a clear plastic cover over it. This area is used for scanning when feeding paper through the automatic document feeder (ADF) from the top. This area must be clean. If this area is clean and clear, it's possible that the scanner element (below the glass) is no longer going all the way to the left when using the ADF. This would be a problem that would require servicing.

Will not make a copy


If it won't copy, it is unlikely to handle faxes either since those functions use the same scanner. If your received faxes are coming out blank, then it is a problem with the ink system; if you can get faxes printed but not copy a document, the scanner may be at fault.
Have someone send you a fax to check this function (printing) and then try sending one back to check the scanner.
If either one fails, then hyou know where the problem lays.

Cannon scanner D1250U2F and Hp photosmart printer 8250


This is a compatibility issue between the Copy function of Toolbox and the specific HP printer driver. The only work-around would be to scan your image and save it, then print it from another application. One other possibility would be to get Toolbox version 2.2.x from the N650U scanner download page. This version will be limited in functionality, but COPY button should function as expected.
