Re: Install Bluetooth unit

There is a place at the front left as you open the cartridge door that the BlueTooth adapter fits in. It goes in with the circuit side going into the hole in the priter housing.

Is there a built in bluetooth on canon MP540?

Yes, but unfortunately it is an option, it does not come as standard equipment. You have to purchase the Bluetooth Ver2.0 maximum speed 1.44Mbps (Option, HCRP) (with optional Bluetooth Unit BU-30)

My Macbook is bluetooth capable. My PIXM MP480 seems to be bluetooth equipped. Can't get the two to communicate. Do I need some other piece of hardware to make it work?


The printer Canon PIXM MP480 is bluetooth enabled ( which is optional ) but it is not fully functional without a Bluetooth unit BU-30 ( bluetooth dongle )

The printer has Bluetooth enabled adapter which means you will need a bluetooth dongle to make it work with your Macbook. You will have to connect the Canon Bluetooth unit BU-30 to the printer and enable to bluetooth function on the printer to be detected by your macbook.

You will be able to purchase the Canon Bluetooth unit BU-30 at any nearest stores ( bestbuy, walmart, costco etc ) for a price of $30 to $50 Approx. depending on the offers you will avail from different merchants/stores.

Hope this answer was helpful.

I can't connect to my HP Deskjet 460 via bluetooth, only via cable (usb). I have installed the printer via cable, and then I try to install the wireless connection via "Add a bluetooth unit" in the "My...

Is your Deskjet still in the default "Private" mode? If so, change it to the "Public" mode.

In the toolbox, go to the printer services tab and choose configure Bluetooth settings. Change the mode to public mode.

I've had my ip90 for awhile now and just found out that I can print wireless . How do I set that feature up ???

You need the bluetooth adapter that goes in the front of the printer and a bluetooth enabled computer or cell phone. The instructions to set up are on the Canon USA website or they come with the adapter.

Wireless adapter instructions

Check your on-line documentation that came with the printer. It should have installed itself when you dowloaded the drivers and other applications form the CDROM that was included. I am also working though the same issue with the BU-30. I have a Dell with XP, but do not have any Bluetooth options in the Printer set up in the control Panel. I beleive there may be some type of software you can add to XP, but I'm not sure. - Good luck

I have a MP 470 printer & a BU-20 bluetooth adapter. The printer works good on bluetooth, but I can not scan, The system tells me that no scanner found. Should the scanner work with bluetooth???

I'm afraid not. The printer uses a push system so the printer cannot communicate with the computer. Therefore you cannot even get any basic information from the printer like ink levels. After reading the manual for the MP 470 the unfortunate thing is they don't explicitly say what functions you can do with bluetooth. I just assumed it would work like a cable, but bluetooth compatible does not imply what I thought.

Bluetooth not found by computer

Hi Bryan,
if you installed the printer by USB, the computer will have installed the drivers for that connection. ( Although USB is Plug and Play ) I,d refer to your user manual regarding bluetooth connectivity, also your printer.
The bluetooth device ( printer ) usually has to transmit signals, to be detected by the Computer. You,ll probably find that if you enable bluetooth on the Laptop. And turn the bluetooth on the Printer ( if Applicable ) by turning on/off or other function ( sync et,c ) the laptop will sense the Printers signal.
Once you have a communication between the two your setup.
I,d suggest unplugging the USB, as the laptops software/hardware, will assume that the printer already has an adequate connection, and will look no further.
Hoipe this resolves your questions regarding Bluetooth Connectivity.

Mike @ compurepair.
