Question about Canon PIXMA MP240 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I click the Image Capture icon in my dock on my iMac when the cord's connected with it and my Canon MP240 printer/scanner, and a window pops up, but that window won't show any tools to help me scan, that or it's blank and the icons near the top of the window are grayed out. I don't understand it. It scanned just the other day, but it isn't now. Help, please??

One thing to check and be sure of is that your printer cable (USB) is definately a USB 2.0 cable. Canon have an issue with their printers with scanners in that the data flow sometimes isn't sufficient when an older USB cable is used. The slightest drop of data on startup or during scanning will cause a stop.
Worth trying and has sometimes solved the problem for my customers.

As for the drivers, go to the following link and then click on the "Drivers and Downloads" tab, then choose your operating system. It should then give you the drivers under the "Driver" heading right below the operating system drop-down box. The software is there as well.

I have OS-X 10.4.11 and had the same issue; any printing just spat out blank pages.
I installed the following driver which completely resolved the issue:
There's a similar one for 10.5 that I haven't tested, to be found here:
If you use 10.5 and this driver works for you, please let others know by posting here, too.

try putting it in 'my documents'- create a new folder
- you name it- for your scanned dox or photos, etc.
when you scan an image, it will come up with an automatically assigned file name, but if you click on it, and it is highlighted blue, click delete, and you can give the file any name you wish- such as 'my sasquach photo-alaska 10/15/09', or something like that!!

Connect a USB or FireWire scanner to the iMac using the scanner cord and the ports on the back of the iMac. Turn the scanner on.
