Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I have a Canon MF6540 that has quit working. The error on it says download connected and none of the buttons work including the on/off switch. I've been reading about the system support tool but I don't know where to find it. Actually I'm not sure what it is. Can you help me with this issue? Thank You!

SOURCE: Scan problems with Canon MX310

I had the same problem. After replacing the USB cable with a good one the scanner came back to life.
I suspect scanner has a higher requirement for USB data transmission thats why printing and copying work but scanning does not.

SOURCE: fax won't work with new digital/internet phone system

True. ALL fax machines are analog devices. Internet phone lines are DIGITAL.

There is no way to make it fax reliably.

SOURCE: I HAVE A CANON IMAGECLASS MF6540. DISPLAY STATES

Your printer has a bad IP Board. If it is still under warranty you will have to take it in to an authorized Canon dealer and have them replace the board. Other people have given the solution that it just needs flashed because the boot information is corrupt or missing. This is the case but there it no firmware to download to correct the problem. The board has to be replaced. The repair for this can range in price but the dealership around me wanted $660.

How do i get canon imageclass mf 6540 to scan


Such printers with scanners built into them are know as Multi Function Printers. It is possible you have downloaded a 'printer only' or generic printer driver software.

Here are the links to the 3 bits of software you require:

Canon ImageClass MF6540- works fine for printing, but scanning complains connection problem on Dell Dimension E521. However my other Dell Dim 9200 computer runs fine for both printing and scanning. What...


Need some clarification about the error.
We need to know the exact error.
Generally all the scannars use TWAIN technology which bridges the scanner with WIA(windows imaging aquisition).
We need to know if WIA which is a part of the operating system is working. For diagonasting we can try using teh scanners and camera wizard from control panel or we can use mspaint even.
If WIA is working in that case the problem may be with the registry values of the scanner.
WE can try making a new user account with admin rights and then we can try installing the scanner. We can even try using Revo uninstaller for uninstallation of the scanner because it will remove all the entries from registry, then we can try scanning.
BEST OF LUCK.

HAVE A DOS BAKERY PROGRAM THAT IS USED DAILY. OUR XEROX PRINTER BIT THE DUST AND MY BOSS HAD ME RESEARCH AND PURCHASE A NEW ONE. PURCHASED A CANON MF6540. ONLY PROBLEM IS, NO ONE TOLD ME IT HAD TO BE A DOS...


There is a workaround that will work for many dos based programs.

It will remove several of the advanced feature from your printers functionality but may solve the problem.

Try this:

Open control panel, switch to classic view if not already in it. Open the Printers folder, then Right-Click on the Canon MF6540, select properties.

Once it opens the instruction may vary slightly for your printer but should roughly be:

1. Select the advanced tab, then click print processor, then select one of the RAW modes on the right and Ok twice to close the windows.

2. Try printing in the DOS program, if it fails, repeat step one and try the next option. If none of the RAW modes work, try the TEXT mode.

If none of these methods work you may need to emulate a LPT Port for the DOS program to Print to, forward it to the Printer and then repeat the above process. DOS programs are notoriously finicky about settings so you will likely have to try several settings to find one that matches.

If your first attempts fail and you need to emulate the LPT port get back to me by adding a comment to this post and I will see if I can find a good emulator to try for you. Or you can buy a router to connect the printer to that already has emulated LPT software such as the Linksys WRT610N. Sharing the printer through such a router creates a virual LPT port on your computer which may work.

If you need more direct help, try clicking my name and clicking Ask Me for paid support. If you can handle the normal speed here in the forums simply reply and we will help you as soon as we're able.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris
