Re: how come my scanner won't work

Have you tried using Scanners and cams in start menu rather than using scan button on printer?

I have a Windows Vista computer and a Canon MP210 copier/scanner and have a document in printer to scan and can not transfer to my computer, I can't find disk and put information from disks years ago on a...

First, if you connected the data cable to the computer, uninstall the current driver and then unplug the data cable. (This is for USB cables.) To uninstall, open the Devices and Printers control panel (click start and then find the line on the right hand column). Right click on the unit and click on Remove Device.

Then navigate to and select your version of Vista (32- or 64-bit). Download the software/drivers. The MP Navigator is the full software and will let you launch scans from the unit once you set it up. The first driver in the list is just the basic driver and will only work with scans initiated by the computer.

Always launch scans from the computer first. There are buttons in the MP Navigator that match those on the all-in-one. The default settings for these need to be set up (see the help in the program) and include resolution and location to save files. Then when the monitor program is running, you will get the MP Navigator coming up with a button press.

Vista can scan without the MP Navigator with three included programs: Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan), Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) and Photo Gallery. Howevver, if you do not install the Canon driver, you will probably get a printer driver only from the OS.

If the problems persist, try a new USB cable and a different port. If you use a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection. Scanners require bi-directional communication with the computer and can fail when the printer works.

I hope this helps.

(if the copy function works, then the above information should help. If the scanner itself is not moving, check for a transport lock and that it is lighting up as it should. In the last case, the unit may need service.)

Scanner not working on Canon MP 210

As for the drivers, go to the following link and then click on the "Drivers and Downloads" tab, then choose your operating system. It should then give you the drivers under the "Driver" heading right below the operating system drop-down box. The software is there as well.

Does the computer see the printer? If using Windows, open Printers folder, and see if the printer shows up. When printing from Word, is the Canon Pixma 210 an option to print to? Double check the cables and re-seat the cables (Disconnect, and reconnect) does the computer make a sound when disconnected, and reconnected? Please let me know if any of this was helpful, or if you have more info that may help with the issue.
