Re: scanning with MP780

If you are using Win XP open control panel/ scanners and printers. It will list the 780. Place the document or photo on the platen glass, then choose which option you need, doc, photo etc.. click preview to see the item, them click next. you'll choose where to scan to/ next scans the image and stores it where you told it. Hope this helps

Own windows 7and no scan with canon prixma MP780

Your MP780 should be able to scan with Windows 7. I presume you can print ok.
Look in your programs for a program called MP Navigator. This is the scanning software Canon use on most of the printer/scanners. If you do not have it then you can download it free from Canons website. Its very simple to use and hopefully that should solve your problem.

Canon PIXMA MP780 All-in-One Printer, etc.

Is this scanner installed onto a Vista computer?

In some cases the scan button may not operate without a memory resident program installed.

It will work by selecting my computer and selecting the scanner on the window. By double clicking on it, it will scan whatever is on the glass.

Blurry Scanning/Copying

Are you scanning both black and white and color the same way? The ADF (automatic document feeder) uses a different scanning area than when you place the document on the scanning glass. If you open the scanner cover, look to the left of the main scanner glass to the narrow strip used for the ADF. Make sure this narrow strip is clean -- no ink or white-out or scratches. This can make your copies look dirty or smudged.

Scanner malfunction

I have the same problem! I used the MP780 for over a year, since then the problem occured. In the beginning I just had to use the calibration tool but later I had to clean the surface of the scanner, to avoid dust, but now the dust is on the backside of the glass-surface and so unreachable. So according to what I think, it's more a problem of dust than a mechinacal problem.
