SOURCE: HP All-in-one will not scan

Had the exact same problem - All-in-one would not scan with the same error message. Found the solution. Go to my computer (in XP) -> Control Panel -> Printers and Other Hardware -> View Installed Printers. Look at the bottom left in the side column of the window, you'll see "Scanners and Cameras". Click that option and it will walk you through the process. It works perfectly! Good luck!!

SOURCE: Scan problems with Canon MX310

I had the same problem. After replacing the USB cable with a good one the scanner came back to life.
I suspect scanner has a higher requirement for USB data transmission thats why printing and copying work but scanning does not.

SOURCE: HP photosmart C5580 How scan to computer?

scanning through bluetooth is not possible bluetooth module only pairs the computer and printer and has link only to the basic driver of the computer so you can only print from it
if you want to scan you should connect te usb cable or use a wireless upgrade kit

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.

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.

How do I scan with this thing?


What OS do you have installed? Did you install the full-featured software or the Canon drivers? These are available here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp780#DriversAndSoftware . If you installed a generic driver from the OS, uninstall it and unplug the data cable (USB) before installing the Canon drivers. (The OS driver will work for the printer but not the scanner.) Next place the document face down on the glass or face up if you have a automatic document feeder.

Always do the first few scans from the computer. (The full software will hear the scanner buttons but you need a few things first. There are scan icons in the software that need to be programmed for the destinations and default locations. The monitoring program also must be running before the scan buttons on the all-in-one will work.) Launch the MP Navigator (double-click on the icon or from the Start Menu) and then the black & white or color scan. Set your resolution and contrast. Adjust these as needed and then Scan and OK. (You can do preview scans and then press an on-screen Scan button.) For more information see the documentation at the Canon site: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp780#BrochuresAndManuals . Remember the settings that give good results; you can use these settings to help you set the destinations and defaults for the scan buttons.

If you have Windows XP or later, you can scan without the MP Navigator in Paint (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint). Then choose File > Import from Camera or Scanner. In Vista and Win7, there is also Windows Fax and Scan that can acquire scans (New Scan). Vista also includes Photo Gallery with a similar feature; the program is available for Win7 in the Microsoft Live package.

I hope this helps.

Don't know how to set scanner for multiple page scan into single pdf file


The supplied Canon software is horrible, but it can be done!

Launch ScanGearStarter, choose advanced tab and click preferences button, then select scan tab.
Untick box "Automatically quit ScanGear....." then click ok.
(This box being ticked totally prevents multipage single file scanning).

Now choose simple mode tab, select the document type, dpi and document size.
Now click the green "Multi Scan" button, place the document on the scanner glas and press next in the new window.

The page will be scanned and the ScanGear window will return, just click "Multi Scan" again and place next document, press next. Keep repeating until all pages are scanned, then close the ScanGear window.

This will bring up a third window showing thumbnails of each page, any of these pages can be deselected if required.
The other important step is to choose from the pull down list Saved as Type: "MultiPagePDF".

Choose the location for saving the file and click save.
Hallelujah! .......stupid software.

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.

Scanner not Functioning


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: http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010249.asp  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!

Scanning


look at the canon web site.. I think they have released a complete driver package for that particular machine to make it fully compatable with vista.. BTW ensure you have the full functioning driver for bith printer and scanner and not just the printing part alone.. Let me know if you are still having problems or if the above doesnt work and well continue from there..
