How to scan a document on the laptop


You will need to ensure you have installed the cannon software correctly, as it comes with a method for scanning to the connected computer.

The Software you are looking for is
MP Navigator EX, it has an option to "Scan/Import" this will fire up the Multifunction scanner or just pressing scan on the multifunction after the software is installed will be sufficient.


So Drivers & Cannon Software are required

Try to adjust the scanner resolution

Solution: Adjusting Output (Scan) Resolution (Windows) - MP150 / MP170 / MP450 / MP500 / MP800 / MP950

Adjusting Output (Scan) Resolution By changing the resolution, you can set how clear the image is going to be.
The higher the resolution, the clearer (but the larger) the scanned image is.
The resolution can be changed before scanning. (Note)
If the resolution is doubled, the image data will be quadrupled.
If the data is large, problems such as slow processing speed or lack of memory may occur.

To change standard scan settings using MP Navigator, click here
To change more advanced scan settings using the scanner driver, click here
Using MP Navigator
  1. Place the document face-down on the platen glass.

  2. Launch MP Navigator.

I cannot send a fax or scan a document. Are there special drivers or software needed to do so?


Looking at your unit, you can send a fax or scan a document by using the operations screen using the menu's accessed from the front panel of the unit. You can send faxes if you have connected the machine to a telephone line. You can scan to a USB drive or a computer, if you have a computer or USB drive connected to the unit. I have attached links directly to Cannon's support site for the on screen manual and for drivers and downloads. There are MP drivers and MP Navigator EX that need to be installed. These applications can be obtained from the second link, drivers and downloads.

To scan you will need to connect the unit to a computer by using a USB cord and thru a network. If you have the unit on a network then you need to install the Cannon IJ Network Scan utility, also available on the second link,

Saving Scanned Data on the Computuer

(1) Make sure that the power is turned on.

(2) Load an original on the Platen Glass or in the ADF (automatic document feeder).

Select the scan operation.

(1) Press the SCAN button.

(2) Make sure that PC is selected, and press the OK button.

The computer selection screen will appear.

(3) Use the (Up) or (Down) button to select the computer to save scanned data, and press the OK button.

Here we select Local (USB).

The document type selection screen will appear.
i_note.gif Note

bullet_s.gif For the network connection, select the computer name to save scanned data in the list.

bullet_s.gif For the connection via USB only, only Local (USB) appears on the LCD.

(4) Use the (Up) or (Down) button to select the type of original and position to load it, and press the OK button.

Here we select Auto detect.
i_important.gif Important

bullet_s.gif Make sure that the originals have been loaded correctly according to the type of original that you have selected. For details, see Loading Originals.
i_note.gif Note

bullet_s.gif If the computer connected over a network is selected in (3), Auto detect does not appear on the LCD.

bullet_s.gif The type of original other than Auto detect includes Document (platen), Photo (platen), Document (ADF simplex), and Document (ADF duplex). If you select other than Auto detect, you can save all scanned data in a PDF file, attach it to a mail, open it with a software application.

Refer to the on-screen manual: Advanced Guide .

bullet_s.gif When selecting Auto detect to scan an original, it will be scanned according to the settings of MP Navigator EX. For details, refer to the on-screen manual: Advanced Guide .

  1. Start scanning.

(1) Make sure that the original is loaded on the Platen Glass or in the ADF.

(2) Press the Color or Black button.

The settings configured with MP Navigator EX apply when scanning.


I will send a separate post to give directions on faxing. You can download and install the manual onto your computer if you like. It contains all of the directions on the use of the unit and has nice illustrations to help you see what the directions describe. Select the On screen manual, let it download and once the file is unzipped, tell it to run. Once the manual installs, look on your program listing on the Start menu for the Cannon manual and open it like any other program.


Here are the links, first for the manual page, look for the link on the lower portion of the page, The second for the driver and download page if you need additional software.

I have a cannon 160 printer but when I click on it, the screen to ask about scanning or print doesn't show.


I have a mp470. Try this before the driver download. Click Start, click all programs, select Canon utilities, select mp navigator, click on mp navigator again. On my pc this opens a window where I can select Scan/import from the platen or from a memory card. If this does not work here is a link to Canon to get your drivers. Note: turn off and uninstall your MP160 before installing the new drivers. Select your operating system from the list and select your desired drivers.

Uninstall all your drivers (and delete the preferences) and download the Mac drivers from this link. The drivers that came with your printer were developed before Snow Leopard came out.

I press scan but nothing happens I scan on cannon Mp 160 and I cant scan with my pc


Make sure the scanner is connected to your laptop/PC before you press 'scan' and is turned on.
Pressing the scan option will start Canan's software MP Navigator for scanning. You can also start MP Navigator on your PC and then start scanning directly from your program or from the printer button.

MP 160 Cannon Printer Won't Scan


try checking if you have completely installed all the drivers for your printer. scanning and copying dont usually needs drivers because you can do that even without a computer. but scanning requires your scanner to be read by your pc. try checking for the scanner driver from the cd that came from your printer.
