    Are you trying to scan from the computer or from the front panel?

    According the the user's manual, color documents can only be scanned by placing the directly on the platen (you can't use the automatic document feeder). In the MP Navigator EX software that came with the printer, you would select Scan/Import from the Navigation screen mode (if you are in One-Click mode, click the button at the bottom left to take you to navigation mode).

    You will select the Photos/Documents (Platen) option. Place the document face down on the platen and allow 3/8" (1cm) between the edges of the platen and the document for photos and align a corner of the document with the corner at the arrow of the platen for color and other documents.

    Select the document type in the navigator and press the scan button.

    When copying from the front panel, place the document facedown on the platen and select the paper size, number of copies, and intensity. Press the color button for color copying and the machine will start copying.

How to scan a slide on flatbed scanner

This model Canon MX700 cannot scan slides.
A flat bed scanner that can scan slides and negatives has a light scource that shines through the slide and negative fand is detected by the scanner sensor.
I suggest you purchase a slide scanner, it will be cheaper that getting a new flat bed scanner with slide capability.

Where should the telephone wire from fax connect to? canon mx700

One end connects to the printer, the other directly into the wall socket for your telephone. Make sure it is not "behind" and Modem filters you may have also.It is not essential to have this cable hooked up unless you want to use the fax function. The printer and scanner will work fine with out this connected.
I hope this helpsRegardsGM

Cannot get my Canon MX700 to Scan. Also did not get a Guide.

You need to install scaning software that came with the printer to scan and save the file to your PC,Out going faxes should not be an issue if you can copy.Once you install the software tell the program where you want it to save the file in ex: My Documents.During set up you can do this (you can change anytime as well as dpi resolution).Windows has built in scaner set up. Go to start, control Panel, Cameras,scaners.Good Luck.
