Question about Printers & Copiers

3 Answers

Hi there I purchased a MP160

Hi there I purchased a Canon MP160 printer/scanner in Jan 07. When I want to do any scanning, MP navigator shows ????? everywhere there should be text in English. The ?????? used to be asian characters, but since I deleted all asian languages in the Control Panel, these characters have been replaced with ????. The odd thing is that if I click on help, the Scanning guide is in English. I have installed the MP160 three times (last time downloading it from the website) and it never has installed properly. Is there some setting in windows XP that I can change in order to get the driver to install properly? The installation process does not allow me to specify a language. I've made sure that the control panel only shows English. Thanks NZNL

Hey, first lets make sure your software is the right language, uninstall the things that you have installed for the printer then go ahead and download this english version of

mp navigator
http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0024911.asp?model=

here are the drivers for your model
http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0024898.asp?model=

And you can use this page to find anything else you need for your printer software vice
http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010392.asp

the programs are set to the asian language, and when you removed the language support from the controlpanel the letters where replaced with ??????? so we need to reset your programs on pc side back to english. so make sure all the programs relative to your printer have been removed then make sure your regional settings are correct in the controlpanel

start -> controlpanel -> classic view -> regional and language options.

after that go ahead and install the softwares required. Let me know if this doesnt solve the problem so we can continue to troubleshoot this. Thanks, im here to help so let me know!

Which site did you go to to get the drivers?
The Canon site i found asked you to specify which operating system and which language you wanted it in.
http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010392.asp
I don't know of a setting to change to get it to install properly.
Trying going to this site and specifying language and let me know how it goes. I'll keep trying to help till we can solve this.
Good Luck.

I press scan but nothing happens I scan on cannon Mp 160 and I cant scan with my pc


Make sure the scanner is connected to your laptop/PC before you press 'scan' and is turned on.
Pressing the scan option will start Canan's software MP Navigator for scanning. You can also start MP Navigator on your PC and then start scanning directly from your program or from the printer button.

How do i scan a document to my mac with a canon mp160?


Run MP Navigator (you can get it and the scanner driver from Canon if you don't already have it). Click on the leftmost tab, then click on "Photos/Documents (Platen)" for basic scanning. For more advanced options click on "Open Scanner Driver" instead.
