I have a Canon MP240. I am trying to scan in photographs but some of them keep getting saved as PDF files. How do I fix this?

I have many years experience repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion for you.

Well thats a good trick, you must have your software set to automatically save as a .PDF I assume you must be scanning a lot of documents and very few pictures. You need to go into the software you are using to scan with and change the settings. Since I don't know what your using to scan with I cant help you there. But I do have a suggestion that may give you a bit of control for just pictures. If you google Canon MP240 Capture Perfect , just like I have it written. A page will pop up on your search and download this program called Capture Perfect from the official Canon website. Its free program and you can then control how you want to save your pictures. But you will have to call this program up prior to starting your scan. At the point you complete your scan it will ask you how you want to save it and where you want to save it.

I hope this helps you out.

uninstall the printer drivers from control panel add/remove program or programs and features. goto and download the drivers for your printer and version of windwos. reboot the computer and then run the file you downloaded. this will reinstall the software and should solve your issue

I am having troubles scanning pictures. When I press the scan button, nothing happens. How do I scan my pictures to go onto my computer?

My MP470 scans best useing this method: click start, click all programs, take Canon utilities, take MP navigator EX and Mp navigator EX again, scan/import should be chosen, if not choose it, have your pic on the platen and click photos/document, on the next screen click scan, after scan make selection from screen, click save, make selection as to where you want to store your pic. Browse and choose "my pictures" if no other desire. good luck and have fun.

Go to this web page:

In the search box type, replace ink cartridge and then click Search.

The top answer should be "How do i replace the ink cartridge(s)?"

Click on that link.

Sounds as though you need the complete software download for your MP240 and Vista. I recommend uninstalling your current driver before using the following from Canon support: (choose your operating system)

I press the scan button and nothing happens. I do not see any icon on my computer. Just the numbers on the printer move around.

to scan you need to install the canon MP navigator

My canon mp240 printer will not scan

It won't scan unless it's connected to a computer, and has the scan software running. Will it copy a document on the glass?
