Canon MP240 printer won't scan

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.

SOURCE: Canon MP210 with Mac OS X 10.4.11 problems with printing docs

Hi

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:

http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0029270.asp?model=

There's a similar one for 10.5 that I haven't tested, to be found here:

http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0028432.asp?model=

If you use 10.5 and this driver works for you, please let others know by posting here, too.

Good Luck

SOURCE: my canon mp240 printer will not scan

It won't scan unless it's connected to a computer, and has the scan software running. Will it copy a document on the glass?

try putting it in 'my documents'- create a new folder

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!!

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.

How to scan using an imac


  • 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.

  • Use the CD or DVD that came with the scanner to install any required software drivers. If the manufacturer's instructions indicate the scanner does not require additional drivers, you can skip this step.
  • Put the object you want to scan face-down on the bed of the scanner.
  • Scan the object by pressing the "Scan" button on the scanner. Image Capture will launch automatically and display a low-resolution preview scan.
  • Set up the scan using Image Capture. The settings available will vary depending on the scanner you are using. With most scanners, you can select a specific area of the object to scan, choose a scan profile based on the type of object you are scanning, adjust the color options and set the resolution.
  • Click the "Scan" or "Scan to Folder" button to scan the object. The image will save to the "Pictures" of your home directory if you press "Scan." The image will save to whatever folder you specify if you press "Scan to Folder."
