Question about Canon PIXMA MP470 All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

I have Canon Pixma MP470. 1 week ago I started getting an error when I went to scan anything: The scanner driver supported by this software is not installed. Install it and then retry. I have been to Canon's site, followed all instructions for downloads for drivers, etc. Nothing. Then I tried doing a custom install for the missing item. Nothing. Then I uninstalled and did a new install. Still nothing. I am running XP, have had XP and this printer for 2 or 3 years with no problem. I have been reading around and think it has something to do with 'corrupt user profile'. It think that because of some other goofy things suddenly not working on computer. Thanks for helping! jb

I can't get my scanner to come up.


It doesn't scan unless you press the scan button on the display or you bring up software that is set to scan. I use PaintShop Pro 8.

You need all the software and Twain Drivers installed as well. It is all available here, including the manual.

"Internal error occurred. Scanner driver will be closed. code 7,202,15"
Received the above error while inserting scanner image using MS Word with Canon printer/scanner Pixma 439.

The solution is via the following MS Word software choices:
From Word tool bar choose: INSERT/PICTURE/FROM SCANNER/then one of two choices, either: WIA-WIA Canon MX430 Series, or choose CUSTOM INSERT (Preferable).

Canon Pixma MX700 Scanner Problem


I was having the same problem, and thanks to the person who posted solution number two which simply highlighted the fact that the apparently software that came with the Canon Pixma MX700 unit is not compatible with Window Vista.

The reason I was confused is because the printer was working perfectly fine across the network, but when I went to scan my computer would tell me that it can't communicate with the scanner. I'm thinking ... "well since you can communicate with the printer, you should be able to communicate with the scanner, after all, they're the same device!"

As a workaround, I used a third party program to do the scan (in this case, Photoshop) and everything worked fine. If you have Photoshop, just go to file > import to start the scan. If you don't have Photoshop, I would think whatever program you are using for image editing may have the same functionality.

Hope that helps,
Brian

Scanning error - cannot scan error code 2,155,0 ???


Hi
I had the same problem, at first I thought that it was the original drivers (the ones I got with the printer) so I donwloaded the drivers from the canon website, this did not resolve the problem. What I also tried and it worked for me was connecting the printer to the computer with it's original usb cable. I bought a couple of weekes ago a usb extension cable (about 5 m long). With this extension cable I can print but I can't scan any document, it just gives me the same error. Hope this works also for you.
Bye
PS: My printer is a Canon Pixma MP190
