Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Scan document from Pixma MP 500 to computer

I connected Pixma MP 500 to the computer to scan document and send it via e-mail. Could not do it because for some reason the comp could not do it trough internet (automatically). It asked to install CD if I have it.
But I don't have installation CD.
Is there any other option I can do it by.

Thank you very much.

I cannot send a fax or scan a document. Are there special drivers or software needed to do so?


Looking at your unit, you can send a fax or scan a document by using the operations screen using the menu's accessed from the front panel of the unit. You can send faxes if you have connected the machine to a telephone line. You can scan to a USB drive or a computer, if you have a computer or USB drive connected to the unit. I have attached links directly to Cannon's support site for the on screen manual and for drivers and downloads. There are MP drivers and MP Navigator EX that need to be installed. These applications can be obtained from the second link, drivers and downloads.

To scan you will need to connect the unit to a computer by using a USB cord and thru a network. If you have the unit on a network then you need to install the Cannon IJ Network Scan utility, also available on the second link,

Saving Scanned Data on the Computuer

(1) Make sure that the power is turned on.

(2) Load an original on the Platen Glass or in the ADF (automatic document feeder).

Select the scan operation.

(1) Press the SCAN button.

(2) Make sure that PC is selected, and press the OK button.

The computer selection screen will appear.

(3) Use the (Up) or (Down) button to select the computer to save scanned data, and press the OK button.

Here we select Local (USB).

The document type selection screen will appear.

Here we select Auto detect.

bullet_s.gif The type of original other than Auto detect includes Document (platen), Photo (platen), Document (ADF simplex), and Document (ADF duplex). If you select other than Auto detect, you can save all scanned data in a PDF file, attach it to a mail, open it with a software application.

Refer to the on-screen manual: Advanced Guide .

bullet_s.gif When selecting Auto detect to scan an original, it will be scanned according to the settings of MP Navigator EX. For details, refer to the on-screen manual: Advanced Guide .

  1. Start scanning.

(1) Make sure that the original is loaded on the Platen Glass or in the ADF.

(2) Press the Color or Black button.

The settings configured with MP Navigator EX apply when scanning.


I will send a separate post to give directions on faxing. You can download and install the manual onto your computer if you like. It contains all of the directions on the use of the unit and has nice illustrations to help you see what the directions describe. Select the On screen manual, let it download and once the file is unzipped, tell it to run. Once the manual installs, look on your program listing on the Start menu for the Cannon manual and open it like any other program.


Here are the links, first for the manual page, look for the link on the lower portion of the page, The second for the driver and download page if you need additional software.

How can I scan a document to my computer using my MP210 printer


You can actually initiate a document scanning via the "Scan" button on the printer or by alternately, by launching the MP Navigator EX software from your PC. Pressing the "Scan" button will launch the same software.

In MP Navigator EX, you can specify the type of original, change resolution, choose a format in which to save the scan (TIFF, JPEG, PDF, BMP), and edit the resulting scans. Within the custom scan tab, you can do advanced actions such as scanning originals larger than the platen using stitch assist and scan into a software program (such as Excel or Word). You can also attach scans to e-mails or save them to your PC.

How do you get the Canon Pixma mp500 to scan?


Hi there,

Scanning images,
About Scanning images
You can scan images from the machine to a computer without printing them and save them in popular formats. Scanned data saved on your computer can be processed using image processing software. Furthermore, you can use the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software to convert scanned paper documents to text data.

* Before scanning
Before scanning images, confirm the following :
- Are the necessary software (MP Drivers and MP Navigator) installed ?
If the software is not installed, install it.
- Does the document to be scanned meet the requirements for an original to be set on the Platen Glass ?
- Is the machine connected to a computer correclty.
Confirm that the connection between the machine and the computer is physically secure.

Scanning Methods.

A) Scanning Using the MP Navigator
MP Navigator enables you to scan in documents loaded on the Platen Glass and view images saved on your computer or on a memory card. Scanned documents can be previewed and easily printed and edited according to your needs.
You can use the supplied application softwares to edit or print the document you have scanned.

Windows : Double-click the [MP Navigator 2.0] icon on your desktop to launch MP Navigator.
Mac : Select [Applications] from the [Go] menu, then double-click the [MP Navigator 2.0] icon to launch MP Navigator.

* Easy-PhotoPrint (Photo Printing)

* ScanSoft OmniPage SE ( Converting scanned document to text)
- This application software may not be supplied with teis machine in some country.

Note : If you did a [Custom Install] and only installed the MP Driver and MP Navigator, these application software were not installed and thus cannot be launched. To launch any of the above application softwares from MP Navigator, do a [Custom Install] once again to install them.
For detailed operations of the MP Navigator, refer to the Scan Guide.


B) Scanning Using the Operation Panel of the Machine
You can scan documents to your computer by using the Operation Panel.
Important : Do not insert or remove USB cables when scanning images with the machine connected to a computer, or when the computer is at sleep or standby mode.
*If you are using Windows XP
The program selection screen is displyed the first time you press [Color] or [Black] on the machine.. Specify the [MP Navigator 2.0] as the application software to use, check [Always use this program for this action], then click [OK]. From the next time, MP Navigator is automatically started.

*When using Mac OS X
For the machine to start scanning when [Color] or [Black] is pressed, you need to set MP Navigator as the starting application software in Image Capture under [Applications] of Mac OS X.

1) Press [ON/OFF] to turn on the machine.
2) Load the documents on the Platen Glass.
3) Select the scan option.
a) Press [Scan].
The scan operation selection screen is displayed.
b) Use Up or Down arrows to select the scan operation, then press [OK].

Important : If with some types of original the position and size of the image is not scanned in correctly, please refer to the "Selecting the Behaviour of the Operation Panel with Mp Navigator " in the Scan Guide (on-screen manual). and change the MP Navigator [Document Type] and [Document Size]] to match those of the original being scanned.
Note : The operation to be performed after scanning the document depends on the scan operation setting you have selected in step 3. For details on how to modify the operation settings, refer tp the Scan Guide on-screen menual.

C) Scanning from an Application Software
You can scan an image from TWAIN-or- WIA (Windows XP only) complaint application software and handle the scanned image in the application software. For detailed operations, refer to the Scan Guide (on-screen manual).
