Question about Canon PIXMA MX850 Multifunction Printer

1 Answer

My Canon MX850 has stopped scanning suddenly, after regular use. It tells me to wait, but nothing happens. I can't hear any mechanics working and if I lift lid, nothing is moving inside.

Uninstall the Canon driver and Cannon application software. Then it is a good idea to scan the whole system for viruses, malware and spyware as these can affect performance significantly. Next scan the system for un necessary drivers and applications etc. You can do this by using a free 30 day evaluation of Ashampoo from www.ashampoo.de that will check out the whole system and assist in removing all the unwanted junk, make sure that you clean the registry as well. I have been using this software for many years with great success in my workshop in improving system performance on many Windows operating systems. Also then do a full HD defragment - also available in the Ashampoo tool. Then when this is complete download all the applications and the driver from Canon Support.


Then retry the application and printing.

I have a canon pixma MX850. I have connected to my network. Printing works fine. When I go to scan, the printer ask to which computer. I don't understand the question, much less the solution. Ho


Many machines allow network printing but not network scanning. I think you will find that the MX850 driver and MP Navigator software simply does not support network scanning. I suggest you query Canon directly.

Canon Pixma MX850 won't scan - says 'set the pc to start scan'


Do you have more than one PC connected to the scanner? I have both a PC and a Mac connected to it, and I think my scanner is trying to connect to the Mac, which requires image capture software to be installed, rather than the PC. Don't know how to tell it to go to the PC, though...

Can't find file where scan goes from Canon MX850


When you choose email or pdf you should be shown a file name of the file - search your computer for this file using Start>Search>For Files and Folders (XP) or Start>Search (Vista). When you locate the folder the files are in create a shortcut to it on your desktop. The obvious places to look would be in your My Documents folder or the Program Folder for the application (C:\Program Files\Canon?)
