All you need to do is go into Navigator and select photo/document, this will take you to a screen where you can select photo/document etc. Then select resolution (the higher the dpi the better the quality, but slows down scanning). Follow the instructions. When scan is complete a small picture will appear, and a dialogue box asking if you wish to scan again, if you do put a new document on the cover and press scan. If it doesn't look right ignore the picture and rescan. When done exit at the dialogue box. The small pictures can be selected and edited or turned around using the icons. You can save one image at a time just by selecting the image and not the others. If you want to make a PDF, then select the images in the order you want the pages to appear in and save as a PDF.

How do I scan a document?


Do you have the full software installed or just the basic driver from Canon? What OS are you using? http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp240#DriversAndSoftware has the software and drivers. If you installed the OS driver, you should uninstall that, disconnect the data cable and then install the driver from Canon. The generic OS driver usually only runs the printer.

Place the document face down on the scanner glass or face up if you have an ADF. Check that the all-in-one and the computer have good bi-directional communication. (Direct USB connection (if you are using that), replace cables if the printer works but not the scanner and the Canon software is installed.)

If you are using the Canon software, you need to set up the destinations for the buttons and have the monitoring software running. Thus start scanning from the computer at first. Launch MP Navigator and then click on the type of document you want to scan. Find the resolution and contrast that works for you. Use these in setting the button defaults (see the manual from Canon). Then click Scan.

Alternately, with Windows XP, Vista and Win7, you can scan with software that came with the OS. Paint is available on all of these OS versions (File > Import from camera scanner > from scanner). Vista includes PhotoGallery which works like Paint (this can be downloaded for XP and Win7). Vista and Win7 also can scan with Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan).

When you have the MP Navigator properly set up, you will be able to launch a scan from the printer. Press the Scan button and the software will launch.

I hope this helps.

I want to scan a document with my MP 180, need the steps to do it with the controlls that are ON the printer please...


For the MP 180, assuming the all-in-one is connected with a good USB cable (and port) that gives full bi-directional data transfer and that the computer has the full software installed, press the Scan button (third button from the left) then Press Black or Color (depending on your document). Then the MP Navigator should open on the computer and then scan into the software.

I hope this helps.

Won't scan


I had this problem, but I have Windows Vista. Epson finally addressed this problem. If you have Vista - and you cannot scan with the Canon MP460...just go to Epson's website, and go to troubleshooting. There you will find an upgrade that is necessary - it's the 'Service Pack 1'. Download it to your computer...and you will be able to scan immediately.

Try re-installing it again. You may have not installed the application software for scanning if you did a Custom Install.
