When i press the scan button , nothing happens at all ,, please help i need to scan photos

The scan button requires proper setting of the program on the computer that tracks the state of that button.
Reinstall drivers (full installation).
Why not open My Computer, find the icon of the scanner and scan using Microsoft scanner or camera wizard?
You can also open MS Paint and scan using File / From scanner or camera.

Scanner will not scan MX310

Solution: Press the ON/OFF button to power on the multifunction device

Press the ON/OFF button to power on the device. The device has an <ON/OFF> button.
  1. Connect the power cord from the device to the electrical source.

  2. Press the <ON/OFF> button.

  3. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting a job request or completing installation.
Try to Uninstall and Reinstall the Driver If the MP Navigator or the MP drivers are no longer required, or if they are not installed correctly, uninstall them.I hope it helps!!!

Scanner problem

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the scannner. Scanner's can be tough. Try disconnecting USB cable and reconnecting too. How recently did the scanner work? Try reinstalling the scanner software/driver. Also see if you can trouble shoot by right clicking on scanner icon from control panel, scanner.
repost if none of these work. thanks.
