    Same problem. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers and software for both the scanner and the printer, but the problem remains. All other functions in the Canon Toolbox work as they should. Only the Copy function does not work. I also switched the function assignments around on the buttons. The buttons themselves work's apparently a problem in the software with the Copy function.

Well you gotta provide the details in scanners configuration where you want the scanner to copy your Documents to .i.e. whether you want it to scan and store it as a image or open it with some Application or you want it to print just assign any one task with proper configuration it will definately work.

The scanner function on my Canon D480 has not worked since the installation.

Go to the scanner company website and see if there are drivers available for download. Sounds as if you may not have the proper drivers installed.

I have canon mp160 printer. how do i usethe scanning function?

You can access the scanning function usually through a button on the front of the Canon, or using the Canon toolbox. If neither of these methods work, double check the physical connections to the printer.

Once you've verified everything is plugged in correctly, and it still doesn't work, you may have to uninstall and reinstall the software that came with your printer. Just make sure that you unplug the Canon from the computer before you uninstall the software, and don't plug it back in until the installation software tells you to do so.

I can't copy or scan but I can print.

I had the same problem on my Mac.  I downloaded two things off Canon's website and all is now working:-
1) Scanner driver (ScanGear for Mac OR MP Drivers for PC) 2) MP Navigator software
Visit:  and choose your drivers.
Restart your machine (with the MP40 switched off) after downloading Switch on, and press Scan... et voila!
NOTE: after putting my Mac in slep mode, the scan button didn't function, but all I had to do was switch the MP450 off then on again for my Mac to recognise it.
Hope this helps!
