MP170 Canan Pixma scanner problem

I saw your report you gave to domo1 on 30th April 2007 and i was having the same problem so i followed all your instructions. However when i try to connect MP navigator it says " cannot download to OS at now" - also if I try scanner connection (I have Windows XP) it says scanner not found or not connected, check cables and see manual etc. Also whenever i press preview my on screen message on the printer goes to scanning 001 and wont scan after the first scan. Sometimes i get bits of preview and some times nothing at all and have to switch if off then on then press scan to be able to get one copy (or half a copy lol) Am I pressing wrong buttons or is it broken. It was working ok but I havent used it for a while and I cant find manual. It prints fine and photocopies fine but wont copy my paperwork to my computer. Hope u can help Cathy. PS ive checked my computer and it says WiiCanon under driver but dont know if this is only printer driver and ive reinstalled a few times but cant get scanner driver

    ive uninstalled and reinstalled many times and still does not work . I even went so far as to download the latest driver from Canon site on web. Sorry to burden u with my problem - im probably just pressing wrong buttons - Ive done a scanner diagnosis test and it says the scanner is working perfect but when i try to copy something it says " scanner error, read manuels - check wiring etc" Cathy

You need to remove the Scanner software [which is different from the printer software] and re install it.

My canon pixma MP170 keeps telling me that ther is


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
