Hello!

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Scanners and Cameras
then double click your scanner and follow the wizard

If your scanner does not shou up in the Scanners and Cameras folder,  then you need to install scanner driver located on the CD the Printer/scanner came with

Hope this helps!

Scanner


Hello Dear,
do u wish to aks that you are not able to see the scanned document for editing or reusing, if it is so you need to open scanner wizard from my computers where you will find an icon showing scanner and written MP470, just double click on the same and select the required software you want in which your scanned document will open.Please revert for more clarification.
Warm Regards,

I dont know how to get it to scan


Do you have the full featured software/driver installed? What OS are you using? Is the computer on and able to see the scanner of the all in one?
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=116&modelid=15403#DownloadDetailAct for the drivers.

Can you start a scan from the computer (MP Navigator or another scanning program (Windows 7 has Fax and Scan for example))?

If the computer doesn't see the scanner, try a new USB cable and plugging the all-in-one to a different USB port on the computer. If you have a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection. Scanners need a bi-directional communication that is very susceptible to signal loss problems that do not affect the printer.

If you did not install the full software before connecting the printer to the computer, you will have installed the OS's built-in basic drivers which does not support all of the buttons on the all-in-one but you should be able to start a scan from the computer.

I hope this helps.

How do i scan with the canon mp 470?


Hello. You must connect the printer to your computer with a USB cable in order to scan. Once you have made the connection turn on both the computer and the scanner. then place the document you wish to scan on the scanner and push the scan button. The scanned item will them appear on the computer screen. NO the wireless printer will not scan wirelessly, only print wirelessly. Regards, Joe

ps kindly rate my answer as helpful.. thank you.

I have Canon Pixma mp470 won't scan to my computer


I also have a mp470. Try this before the driver download. Click Start, click all programs, select Canon utilities, select mp navigator, click on mp navigator again. On my pc this opens a window where I can select Scan/import from the platen or from a memory card. If this does not work here is a link to Canon to get your drivers. Note: turn off and uninstall your MP470 before installing the new drivers. Select your operating system from the list and select your desired drivers.
