Whenever you install a printer you should install the installation software that came with the printer before you connect the printer. Usually the installation software will tell you when to connect the printer and then it will configure it and print a test page. I would go to add/remove programs and remove any remove any software you have installed for the printer. Then remove the printer from the control panel at the printer icon. Then disconnect the printer and re-start the computer. Now use the installation cd and follow it's instructions.

I bought the Canon Canoscan N1240u flatbed scanner. I downloaded the drivers and plugged in the cord that came with it but it doesn't do anything.


Just to be sure, did you install the driver in addition to downloading it? Full software or basic driver. The software must be installed before connecting the data cable. What OS are you using? (if you have Vista 64-bit, it is not compatible) If you didn't install the software, uninstall the OS driver and disconnect the data cable before attempting to install the Canon software. Otherwise see the notes for scanning with other software.

First are you trying to use the scanner buttons? These will only work if the full software is installed. For the buttons to work, you have to set up the scanner button destinations in the Canon software first. Also a monitoring program must be running for the button presses to work.

So try scanning from the computer first. If you still get an error, try a new data cable. If you are using a USB hub, try a direct connection. Make sure your USB ports work with a known working device. You can also check if the ports are disabled for security (in the Device Manager for Windows) or power savings (an advanced setting from the Screen Saver).

Once you have scanned successfully from the computer, go to the Settings section of the Toolbox to set the default destinations for the scan buttons.

If you only installed the basic driver, you can scan with Paint (XP or Vista), File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan. Vista also has Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) and Photo Gallery to acquire scans. I don't know the Mac software. Third-party software will also work if installed.

I hope this helps.

Can not scan


When this happen it is usually the USB cable. When this happen it is usually a problem with the USB cable. If
communication on USB cable is bad, as a result you can print but not
scan.Having also messed up a bit with the drivers ("HP digital
monitoring icon anymore"), you may also need to reinstall the driver.
My suggestion on how to proceed is the following.
Buy a better usb cable, the shilded ones cost a couple of dollars more but guarantee better communication.
Unplug printer from usb.
Unplug computer and printer from power for two minutes.
Plug back computer and printer to power, DO NOT plug in USB cable yet, leave printer NOT connected to pc.
Reinstall
drivers and software, keep printer disconnected until connection is
explicitely required by printer software installation process, or after
installing.
Connect printer when required.
Check that there is no
electric device (power adapters, extension etc.) very near to printer
USB cable, they can cause electromagnetic disturbance.
Try scanning. If it does not work at thhis point is either a problem with windows (new windows install required) or a faulty scanner.

I can no get my printer to scan to my computer


Do you have the full software (MP Navigator) installed? Get that software here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp510#DriversAndSoftware and select your OS. Since the printer is a USB printer, is it directly connected and did you install the software before connecting the USB cable? If you didn't install the software before you connected the USB cable, uninstall the generic driver from the OS and remove the USB cable. Then install the software.

If the full software was installed before connecting the printer, try a new cable and a direct connection (instead of a print server or USB hub). Scanners require bi-directional communication with the computer and can fail when the printer works. Make sure the monitoring program is running before attempting to scan from the all-in-one.

Next try to scan from the computer first. There are buttons in the MP Navigator software that set the destination and default settings of the buttons on the all-in-one. After you scan at least one item, you will have a better idea of the settings that you need to use. See the MP Navigator help files for the details.

If you install the basic Canon driver, you will be able to scan but not from the unit directly. Windows XP and newer all come with Paint that can acquire scans (File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan). Windows Vista and Windows 7 have Windows Fax and Scan that can also scan files (New Scan). Photo Gallery in Windows Live (comes with Vista) also handles scanning.

The generic OS driver usually only runs the printer.

I hope this helps.

How can I scan my documents?


It depends a bit on the OS and software you have installed and the connection. First, do you have the full software installed, if available for your OS? If you installed a generic OS driver, you should uninstall it and unplug the data cable until after the full software install requests it. Get the software here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=60259& and select your OS. (Newer Windows versions (like Win7) only use the driver in the OS; plug in the USB cable and let Windows Update find the driver.)

Put the document face down on the glass of the scanner or face up in an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). Make sure the transport lock is unlocked on scanners with that feature.

If you have the full software installed, then start scans, at first, by launching the software (Start > All Programs > HP > HP Director or double-clicking the icon on the desktop). Then set the scan settings (Settings > Scan Settings and Preferences) - this is where you set the default destination and resolution, among other settings. You will see one setting for Button Settings. Once the button settings are set, if the monitor program is running, you will be able to launch scans from the buttons on the all-in-one. Click on Scan Picture or Scan Document depending on the item to be scanned. Adjust any settings and then press Scan. Check the preview if it comes up and then click Accept.

If the full software is not installed or you do not wish to use that software, you can use programs that are already in Windows or a third-party software. Windows XP, Vista and Win7 all include Paint, Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint, which can acquire scans. Select File > Import from Camera or Scanner > Import from Scanner and then you will be able to scan. Vista and Win7 also include Windows Fax and Scan (Start > All Programs > Windows Fax and Scan). Click New Scan. The Windows Photo Gallery was preinstalled on Vista and is available as a download for Win 7 and can also acquire scans.

If you have problems scanning, try a new USB cable or a different port. If you are using a USB hub or print server, use a direct connection. (Print servers usually don't work for scanners). Scanners require bi-directional communication with the scanner and can fail even if the printer works.

I hope this helps.

How to use the scanner on my HP 2170 Printer?


First make sure you have the full featured software installed if it is available for your all-in-one. For the 2170, download the software from http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=90807&lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=90805&taskId=135 . Uninstall a generic driver and unplug the USB cable before installing the full software (ie install software before plugging in the data cable). Avoid print servers and USB hubs; if there are any problems try a new cable first. Scanners require bi-directional communication so a bad cable will cause more problems with the scanner than with the printer.

Vista and Win7 both use a driver built into the OS; so just plug in the data cable. (If Windows Update is set to automatically install drivers for new hardware, it will quickly install the files. Otherwise check Windows Update.)

You can get the manuals from http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?contentType=SupportManual&lang=en&cc=us&docIndexId=64179&taskId=135&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=90805 .

If you have the full featured software, you will need to set up the destinations for the scanner buttons in the HP software. So start that program and scan from the computer first. (The buttons will not work if an HP monitor is not running to "see" the button presses.)

If you are using the OS driver, the buttons will not work. However, Win7 and Vista will acquire scans in several programs: Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner) and Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) among others.

I hope this helps.

Updated to Windows Vista and now the Dell 922 AIO scanner won't work


For windows Vista; it is imperative to run the Vista patch which can be found on the Dell website (Downloads and drivers).
Make sure that you run the patch, after removing the printer USB cable from the computer. Restart the computer as the patch suggests and then install the Vista specific drivers, which also need to be downloaded from Dell Website.
Again, do not connect the printer unless the installation software asks you to.
For scanner issues, those who are unable to get anything scanned to their computer, and are able to print, it is essentialy a Firewall/Anti-virus issue. You can check that out by trying to scan using an application such as MSPaint (Start> type 'mspaint' > hit enter).
