Question about Canon PIXMA MP460 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My MP 460 will not scan, I place a document on the screen, press the black and white/colour button and then scan again and nothing happens. If I try to do it through the computer nothing happens, it just says "no connection to the printer" but all of my cables are connected and plugged in, the printer works fine, it's just the same error coming up and the manual is of no help. I have tried re-installing the printer with all of its components but this has been of no assitance either. Could someone please help!!!
If there is a message the one seds no connection that is because you are conected to the computer with the serial cable or usb cable but the settings on your computer is for the oposite this means you have to go to start ,printers ,where you can see the name of your printer do a right click with the mouse and click properties go to ports and look for the check mark on the port name on the left square box there is LPT, COM, USB port check on the one your printer is using and that all your computer will be have comunication with your printer

You can scan documents using the operation panel.
Do not disconnect or connect the USB cable while the machine is in use.
In Windows XP, the program selection dialog box may open when you press the Color Start or Black Start button on the machine for the first time. In that case, select MP Navigator EX, then select Always use this program for this action and click 'OK'. From the next time, MP Navigator EX will start automatically regardless of the selected scan mode.
Selecting a Response to Commands from the Operation Panel
1. Place the document face-down on the platen.
2. Press the Scan button on the machine.
The machine enters Scan Mode.
3. Press the Color Start or Black Start button on the machine.
MP Navigator EX starts on the connected computer. Scan documents on the platen or ADF (Auto Document Feeder) using MP Navigator EX.
Trust this is helpful.
