Here is the link to the drivers and software for this printer:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=331&modelid=8046

This link goes to the picture software:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=331&modelid=8046

This link will take you to several user manuals and guides:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=331&modelid=8046
They are in PDF form so you have to have acrobat reader installed.

Download the above to your desktop for easy finding.
Rebooting your pc with the printer connected will prompt it to 'see' the printer and bring up the add new hardware wizard.
Direct the wizard to where the driver files are and it should install
them automatically.

How to install canon pixma e510 without disk


Below is the only link I could find that looks to be good. If you have upgraded to Windows 10, I'm not sure if this will work for you. It does support up to Windows 7 though.

I've just acquired a 2nd hand Canon i550x printer with a PC setup running XP. The printer works but when printing a multiple page document only the first page prints and then the green light flashes...


Here is a possible solution.
Open 'Printers and Faxes' and right-click your printer. Select 'Properties' from the menu.

Select Paper/Quality tab. And from the 'Paper Source' select 'Auto feeder' or 'Auto' if 'Manual feed' is selected.

If Manual feed is selected, that means the printer is waiting for you to insert a paper for each page to print. That is why you get only the first page printed.
Good luck! And if this solves your problem, consider voting me.

It just won't scan. It prints fine and it photocopies fine but if I go on to scan and choose any of the scanning options it says "Place document on platen glass and press ()" (i tried to draw the button...


Hey Yasmin,

I had the same problem.

I installed the MP Navigator (MP Navigator Ver. 3.03 (Windows 7/7 x64/Vista/Vista64/XP/XP x64/2000/Me/98) from the canon website (http://support-au.canon.com.au/contents/AU/EN/0900173112.html) and then I released the scannerlock (http://www.fixya.com/support/t5363070-trace_release_scanner_lock)
and then I could scan! Not only through the printer itself by pressing the (<I>) button but also through the MP Navigator program. When I pressed the (<I>) button on the printer, the scanned document would be automatically saved on the computer in a folder of MP Navigator.

Hope this helps you!

Canon MF 4350d Wont install


Almost the exact same problem. New 4350d Canon printer trying to connect it with Dell 8300 with XP. The computer says it does not recognize. Tried everything - reinstall drivers, download drivers, tried every USB port, swapped cables, spoke with Canon support and finally took the printer back and got a new one (Canon support person decided the USB board must be bad). New machine - same old problem.

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

Printer problem


here is the link for the driver download for the i250 for xp (hope you didn't mean you threw the printer itself away) http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0023758.asp?model= Here is the link for the bjc 80 scanning driver for xp; http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0018984_0000424.asp?model= but unfortunately canon does not seem to have a driver for printing in xp for the bjc80, it doesn't seem to be compatible - contact canon and they might have plans to release an xp driver this link has dos drivers for the bcj80; http://alpha03u.c-wss.com/inc/ApplServlet?SV=WWUCA900 Hope this helps - other option would be to go back to windows me/2000 or get an xp capable printer - if you get a new one make sure it can deal with windows vista as well in case you upgrade in the future :)
