Re: Whats shipping lock?

The shipping lock stops the damage in transit of the scanner or printer, there will be a lever on the underside or the side of the scanner/printer or there will be something holding the printing head in place under the cover.

Canon pixma mp500 will not scan a document. My ink is low but that should not matter, I just want to scan a document to PDF.

Same Problem - Had nothing but issues with Cannon - Very hungry on ink as well :( Still not as bad as HP

I want to scan a doucument on the PIXMA MP500.

You must have got a CD with the printer. Just install it and load the paper in the scanner and press the scan button on the front panel. It automatically starts to scan and shows you the document. Later it will ask you whether to save it as a JPG file (as image) or a PDF file (document).

My Canon PIXMA MP500 won't scan.

See to it that no other stickers or lock that won't allow to run of read the scanner in your printer.

Usually this kind of settings are very difficult if also you don't read the manual or procedures on how to use it.

If you encounter like this that your printer won't scan. Not for thinking but you send it to Canon Center or Computer Shop near in your place.

Good luck.

Won't scan

The scanning feature is much more sensitive to connection signal strength than the printing function. Make sure the USB connection is firmly in place on both the computer and the MP500. If this doesn't fix the problem I would try a different 6 foot length USB cable.

Canon mp500 onlt scans part of the page

I was very frustrated by this problem too, but just found a fix at last!!

Instead of focussing on the settings on the scanner itself. Use the MP navigator software to change scan settings and get around this problem. there you can set document size, colour or black and white and even DPI (quality) .
