That is alright , you need to re-install the drivers for it to work, shut down both machine, and connect the printer to the system, and power them back on, the system will recognize the printer it will also ask for the drivers please follow the instructions.

How do i scan using my Canon mp240 printer?


Put your paper that you want to scan onto the glass on your printer. Press the scan button. The printer will display a list of application choices that are installed on your pc and acceptable to send your scanned image to. Choose one of these appications listed to confirm where you want your scan to go to (what program you want to send it to and open it up to edit it in) and then just press ok or start.

you can also click on the canon link that should be on your desktop and choose scan. Then follow the instructions on the screen to view and save your image.

I've been scanning to my computer w/ my cannon mp240 and suddenly cannot. It still scans and prints and prints from my computer, but the scanning to computer has stopped. I have a MAC and it's worked...


The printer drivers for the MP240 are intergrated in the Mac OS X.
If software for your printer was included with the Mac OS X installation, check the printer manufacturer's website for updated versions. Install a printer driver available from the manufacturer's website only if it is a newer version than the one included with Mac OS X.

Repair disk permissions

Tip
: For more information about Repair Disk Permissions and Mac OS X v10.2, v10.3 or later, see "About Disk Utility's Repair Disk Permissions feature".
  • Mac OS X v10.3 or later: Open Disk Utility (/Applications/Utilities/). Select your Mac OS X startup volume in the column to the left of the Disk Utility window, then click the Repair Disk Permissions button.
  • Mac OS X v10.2 through 10.2.8: Open Disk Utility (/Applications/Utilities/). Select your Mac OS X startup volume in the column to the left of the Disk Utility window, then click the First Aid tab. Click the Repair Disk Permissions button.
  • Mac OS X v10.1.5: Update to Mac OS X 10.1.5 if you have not already, then use the Repair Privileges Utility. See "Mac OS X: About the Repair Privileges Utility 1.1".


Reset printing system (Mac OS X v10.4 and later)
If other steps haven't helped, you can reset the printing system. Important: This should only be used as a "last resort" when troubleshooting a printing issue.

How do i use the scanner on my canon pixma mp240?


Before scanning originals, confirm the following.
bullet_s.gif Are the necessary software applications (MP Drivers and MP Navigator EX) installed?
If the software applications are not installed, refer to the printed manual: Getting Started.
bullet_s.gif Does the original to be scanned meet the requirements for an original to be set on the Platen Glass?
bullet_s.gif Is the machine connected to a computer correctly?
Confirm that the connection between the machine and the computer is physically secure.

the actual scanning should be as simple as turning your device on, putting the image to scan on the platten glass and then press the scan botton then save the image scan in your computer or memory card.

more instructions can be found on the manual which you can download and installed from here

You should go to the support section on the CANNON website and click on she "Drivers and download" tab

Select the file marked MP240 Onscreen manual for either windows or mac (depending on what you have) and download / save it then run the program
