    Software installed:Done.
    Computer turned on: Done.
    Window opens when I press scan: Lies! All Lies!
    That was the least helpful thing I've ever read in my life. I'm now stupider for having read that.

You need to load the s/w that came with the printer on the computer that it is connected to. The computer needs to be turned on for the scanner to work. When you press the scan button the scan program will open on the computer montior and you can save the image from there.

If you have other software like Adobe photoshop you can choose your Canon scanner from the Import settting under the file menu.

I don't know what software i need for my Canon Pixma Mp160 printer with scanner. The printer works but when i press SCAN nothing happens; i was told i needed software. Are they free? Where can i find it?


the scanner doesnot work like that. when you load the all in one driver cd, the scanner driver loads with it. there should be a scanner icon somewhere on the desktop or in my computer. it onlt scans from the computer by putting the document on the glass and press scan button on computer and it will scan and save on the pc.

How do you get the Canon MX300 printer to scan? I do not know what all you need for a printer to scan but when I press the scan button it just beeps and nothing happens.


Hİ,
First You must install "MP Navigator EX" program to your Pc..and then you can control every feature of the scanner from your computer..(not from scanner...)
This program normally comes with the MX300 as CD ,if not you can download from Canon support page....Good luck..Regards

I press scan but nothing happens I scan on cannon Mp 160 and I cant scan with my pc


Make sure the scanner is connected to your laptop/PC before you press 'scan' and is turned on.
Pressing the scan option will start Canan's software MP Navigator for scanning. You can also start MP Navigator on your PC and then start scanning directly from your program or from the printer button.

The start buttons are not working in scan mode. Press them and nothing happens. The other buttons work, such as the two buttons directly below the screen.


Scan from the scanner and camera wizard, the front scan button is useless. Go to My computer, open the scanner icon and scan from there, no need to use the button at all.

Scanner problems


You may have a printer driver error.

Remove the USB cable from the PC.

Uninstall the printer from Add/Remove Programs from control panel.

Get your printer driver with the CD that came with it and install the printer again. Or download latest printer driver from canon - type "canon mp510 driver" into google.

Install new driver.

If its still not working, it may just be a connection problem between your computer and the scanner - check the USB cable is ok.

If its not that (more than likely not) then the workaround is to go into MPNavigator on your PC (start programs, printers, Canon MP510, Canon Utlilities, MP Navigator 3.0 (or whatever version ures is ))

then you need to set a short cut to that... it allows you to scan directly from that program.


Hope it works
