Just bought a Canon Pixma 620B wireless printer/scanner. Get error message when trying to set up the wireless function: "ERROR: New Port Could Not be Created." I have a Dell S17-162B, operating on Vista. Advice?

Hi. Try to check up first scanner power cable and network wireless router. If it are running running good. your scanner have defective parts. like IC chipset. Second option : try to general cleaning your Canon PIXMA MX892 Network-Ready Wireless All-In-One Printer. using vacuum.
Try this, 1) Go to Start/Settings/Printers and Faxes 2) Right click the "Pixma MG6150 Printer" and choose property 3) Go to the Ports page (From the top menu), and assigned to port FILE: it should be assigned to a Canon Pixma MG6150 Network port 4) Click button, and select "Canon Pixma MG6150" type, and then new port 5) The "Canon Pixma MG6150" printer will be associated with this new port, automatically 6) Click OK
Open the hood of your printer; if the ink cartridge holder does not slide into view, check to make sure the printer is turned on.
Remove any empty cartridges from the ink cartridge holder and dispose of them properly. Some Canon printers have a protective cartridge lid that must be opened before you can change a cartridge.
Remove all protective tape and plastic film from the fresh cartridge. Canon uses a bright orange protective tape on its ink cartridges. Some Canon ink cartridges also have a bright orange protective cap over the ink nozzle that must be removed before installation.
Insert the new cartridge into the ink cartridge holder. Tilt the cartridge up slightly and insert end-first into the proper slot; push down gently on the cartridge to lock it into place. Some Canon printers have an indicator light that will activate when the cartridge is firmly installed; other models have a cartridge cover that will lock into place when closed.
Close the hood of the printer. The printer will indicate when it is ready for use with a message on the LCD screen or by blinking the LED indicator light.
I'm using an MG5220 and got this same message. Here's how I fixed it.
On the printer control panel press the soft key to select the scan function. Then hit the soft key to select Save/Forward. Then select Foward scanned data to a PC. On the next screen make sure to select the appropriate PC. In my case I'm connected wireless but the selection was set to USB connection and that's why I was getting the error noted above. When I picked the PC that is connected wirelessly everything worked fine again.
This problem sucks. It sounds like the scanner has actually gone bad. This can be a couple of things. The actual ccd unit inside the scanner, a position sensor, a motor or a wire harness.
The latter two are fairly unlikely, the first two more likely. Most probable is the CCD unit. I don't think Canon sells it as a separate piece, but it comes inside a replacement scanner assembly. These complete scanner units are expensive. You'll have to check with your local Canon shop to see what they cost.
