I have a MP 470 printer & a BU-20 bluetooth adapter. The printer works good on bluetooth, but I can not scan, The system tells me that no scanner found. Should the scanner work with bluetooth???

I'm afraid not. The printer uses a push system so the printer cannot communicate with the computer. Therefore you cannot even get any basic information from the printer like ink levels. After reading the manual for the MP 470 the unfortunate thing is they don't explicitly say what functions you can do with bluetooth. I just assumed it would work like a cable, but bluetooth compatible does not imply what I thought.

My Macbook is bluetooth capable. My PIXM MP480 seems to be bluetooth equipped. Can't get the two to communicate. Do I need some other piece of hardware to make it work?


Hi,

The printer Canon PIXM MP480 is bluetooth enabled ( which is optional ) but it is not fully functional without a Bluetooth unit BU-30 ( bluetooth dongle )

The printer has Bluetooth enabled adapter which means you will need a bluetooth dongle to make it work with your Macbook. You will have to connect the Canon Bluetooth unit BU-30 to the printer and enable to bluetooth function on the printer to be detected by your macbook.

You will be able to purchase the Canon Bluetooth unit BU-30 at any nearest stores ( bestbuy, walmart, costco etc ) for a price of $30 to $50 Approx. depending on the offers you will avail from different merchants/stores.

Hope this answer was helpful.

My Canon MP510 scanner won't scan - the printer works fine, but I can't get it to scan. It used to work just fine.


Try using your scanner from your computer, I'm using windows XP and when i go to My Computer and the printer is connected i see a section that says Scanner and Cameras, your printer should be there, click on it and follow the easy step to scan a document.

Wireless adapter instructions


Check your on-line documentation that came with the printer. It should have installed itself when you dowloaded the drivers and other applications form the CDROM that was included. I am also working though the same issue with the BU-30. I have a Dell with XP, but do not have any Bluetooth options in the Printer set up in the control Panel. I beleive there may be some type of software you can add to XP, but I'm not sure. - Good luck

Canon Pixma MP 470 Not Scannin


I have the printer. You need to scan through your image software on your desktop. The button on the scanner does not function.

With your image software, there should be an "Import from Camera" and "Import from Scanner." Pick the latter, and it will prompt you through the process.

Took quite awhile to figure that out.
