Hi There

If you have not done yet you can try un-uninstoll your printer driver and close down the PC restat and then re-instoll it back on, this some times will work but not forget to leave out the USB lead from your printer intill the software driver asks you to put in.

Won't turn on.

Did you get it working Jason? My MP610 did the same thing to me this morning... I went through all the rigmarole of moving it, testing it with different power cords and etc... with no success. I left it unplugged completely, tried it again this afternoon and it works. Well, it turned on, copied a piece of paper, I was able to access the ink cartridges and switched it on and off again twice and it worked. Hoping it will stay that way.
I don't know if it happened because I put a CF card in to slot - will try card in another reader first and see what happens...
I would be interested to hear what happened with yours, Jason.Cheers, Vicki 23rd April 2012

Lost manual for MP610. How do I change ink?

Here's the way to change ink in the MP610. Its pretty straightforward, and I have tried to give you pretty comprehensive instructions below. However, you can download the instruction manual for the MP610 off their website if you still have trouble after reading the following:
Instructions for when ink tank runs out of ink in Canon Pixma MP610
1. Open Paper Output tray (finger fits in rounded indent in the Paper Output tray--open gently
2. Make sure machine is on and lift the Scanning Unit cover which will uncover the ink tanks. Once unit is opened the print head holder will move to the center automatically.
3. When/if you leave the scanner unit open for a while, the print head holder will move back to the right, but you can move it to the center as in the action described in 2 by repeating the opening of the scanner lid sequence. Whatever you do, DON'T move it yourself if it doesn't come into the center automatically. Do wait until the ink tank holder stops!
4. Open the inner cover and remove the empty ink tank(s) the empty one/ones will be flashing fast-(red light) so it will be easy to see which one to remove. If you have more than one empty tank to replace, make sure to do them one at a time.
5. Removing the packaging from the new tank by peeling off the orange tape in the direction of the arrow and make sure it is completely off and then.remove the orange protective cap.
6. Snap the new tank in place so it is in the same position as the one you just removed. The ink lamp will light up red when you press down firmly on the little square icon and you will also hear it snap into place.
7. Follow the same steps as in 5 and 6 for each additional tank you need to replace.
8. When you have replaced all the tanks with new ones, close the inner cover and then make sure to close the scanning unit cover.
The machine will automatically perform the print head cleaning cycle, so be patient. Once all the noise stops you are good to go!

I have used my Canon mp610 printer/scanner for years with no problem, now all of the sudden it will not scan. I know the computer sees it because I can print to it. I have restarted the printer and the...

In exactly the same boat. Navigator software worked fine for a long time, now it can't find the scanner driver. The only change I can identify is that I attempted to use Acrobat Pro for scanning and then nothing worked. Help!

Cannot scan to mp610, but can print (both using bluetooth)

Regrettably, scanning over bluetooth is not possible. Both theoretically and practically. Scanning requires huge amount of data packets to transmitted that is not possible over bluetooth.

Yes. PIXMA MP610 is a multifunction printer that has printer/copier/scanner capabilities.
Just install the software and drivers supplied with your printer (or download them from CANON ) and connect the printer do the computer.
The printer sofware will guide you through the operation of scanning an image and saving it to a a file in the computer.
Below is a link to CANON product support pages, from where you can dowload the software and drivers for the printer and also guides and manuals.

The short Question Is there a way for me to scan without ink on my MP610? The descriptive question. I have a Cannon Mp610. I previously had success scanning by installing the drivers and the software but...

if the printer will let you run it without an error for the ink, than yes, scan to your pc. usually if you look there is an ink sensor like a button in a washing maching that allows it to spin only when the lid is closed, you follow me...anyway if you can find it sometimes you can fool the printer into thinking it has ink. other than that, if it wont let you than there isnt any way other than to get ink. this is why i always frown on buying the cute all in ones because if something goes, the whole thing goes.

MP610 Scanner Not Working

i was having the same problem as the original poster of this thread, where nothing was happening, and this was what i did:

using a mac, i:

- spotlight searched "image capture" (that's what it's called) and opened up the app
- it somehow "woke up" my printer, aka connected the printer to the app, and it would scan the overview, but not scan the final selection that i made. see comnomad's post if you don't know the difference between overview vs. scan.
- so i restarted my printer
- i then did the overview, selected the parts that i wanted, and scanned it again
