Question about Canon PIXMA MP470 All-in-One Printer
The printer and copier are working fine but the scanner just wont seem to work. Followed the insturctions thoroughly and no response. Should I return it or is there some way to fix the problem.
I have the printer. You need to scan through your image software on your desktop. The button on the scanner does not function.
With your image software, there should be an "Import from Camera" and "Import from Scanner." Pick the latter, and it will prompt you through the process.
Took quite awhile to figure that out.

Try opening the application called Image Capture and then checking the Device tab and then make sure Canon MP470 is checked. Click Scan or Overview and it should scan.

I replaced the USB cable, and the scanner now works fine. Like Blasteroid wrote, use a high quality USB cable. I would even suggest a USB 2 cable. The scanner is not defective, it just cannot communicate with the computer. The solution is the USB cable used.

I had this problem also, I was using MP Navigator 3.0. I uninstalled it and installed MP navigator EX 1.0. This solved the problem for me. Hope it helps (2 years later, lol)

I upgraded the drivers and software and it did not help. However, when I replaced the USB cable with a USB 2 it now works great. Thank you so much for a great fix to the problem.
