How do I scan a document to my computer with the Canon Pixma MP470 printer/scanner? I tried to press scan, but the document never shows up on my computer


Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Scanners and Cameras
then double click your scanner and follow the wizard

If your scanner does not shou up in the Scanners and Cameras folder,  then you need to install scanner driver located on the CD the Printer/scanner came with

Hope this helps!

Connect x2580 Lexmark printer to toshiba laptop

Hello chuck01438 ,

  1. Remove the printer out of the box and connect the power cable to a power adapter.
  2. Install the drivers and necessary software. Enclosed with the printer package should be a driver CD-ROM for the printer. It might also contain some print enhancement software supplied by the manufacturer of the printer. Follow the instructions for software installation.
  3. Connect the square end of the USB cable to the printer and the rectangular end to your laptop.
  4. Turn the printer ON. Your laptop should find the newly attached hardware, and recognize it as printer.
  5. Open any document or picture and click on Print in File menu or click on a printer icon in the toolbar.

Unable to print document 1" top,bottom,andleft and right. Font very small. Margin needs to be aligned with computer

and Hi again,

For some unknown reason(s) our Live Session was cut. Any development(s)?

Pls, in MS Word, have you tried clicking on File and then Print Preview? Would you so kind as to check if the way the document is shown is the same way the document was printed?

If yes, was the right margin as you would want it to be? otherwise, have you checked on the settings of the MS Word document specifically the right indent as shown below in red circle?
Would appreciate if you can post back any developments or even the lack of it.

When printing black, the first page comes out in clear black, however subsequent pages are printed in red. In doing a second document the same thing occurs.

Be sure to update your printer drivers with the newest (correct) manufacturer's drivers.

Also, make sure when you print a document you are printing in greyscale. Otherwise, you're wasting your color cartridge. Speaking of which I would try another set of cartridges, and aligning them using the software that came with your printer. Your color cartridge could be malfunctioning.

HP Deskjet 840c - Printing Emails

I did see you reinstalled your software) but please continue
It is important that you have that icon by the clock. Power off the printer by pressing the power button on the printer.
Please un-install your printer software through Add/Remove Programs within the control panel. Please restart the Pc after un-install is complete. Create a folder on your hard drive and name it, "HP DeskJet 840C". Go to this link listed below & download the printer driver software listed. When you save to disk you can choose where you want to save. Pick the folder you created. Save inside this folder. The HP driver (Will most likely be updated software). I promise, you will have a icon down by your clock when finished.
Follow the instruction in your manual for setup & installation.
If you using Outlook Express & you want to print or send through your printer the page should be set as 8.5x11". Orientation should be set to Portrait, unless you set this for A4.
Lastly, please turn off your anti-virus software during install & re-install. Just in case you come back to this thread!
please vote...
