Question about Canon PIXMA MP980 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

My Canon Pixma MP980 All In One won't scan documents to my computer to which it is attached. It will scan to a USB memory stick but not to the computer. It keeps giving the error message that the "image" can't be found. What can I do to correct this frustrating problem. I have un-installed and re-installed the software 3 times and replaced the power cable and the computer connection cable in vain. It used to scan to my computer but not any more. I run Windows XP Home edition. Thank you, Christina Weate

The problem is not the printer or the make of printer: The problem lies with the PC

Did you update the software 2/20/09 also ? Download both the software and the driver. Uninstall the whole thing and start over.

SOURCE: I have an canon pixma mp480 connected to a windows

Is the printer connected via USB to the XP computer?
How did you map the shared printer (ie; what port)
When you're on a Vista machine, go to Network, find thw XP computer, explore, can you access the printer through this method? I need to know if Vista machines were set up with this printer on Local Port or Connected to this machine.

SOURCE: Windows XP SP3 will not recognize the printer is connected.

It could be the cable, but most likly it is a damaged driver. try uninstalling the printer and all the drivers then reboot and resinstall it. You could also run "sfc /scannow" to see if any system files are damaged.

Canon mp 980 won't even copy or scan if any ink runs out. Is there any way to change that?


Sorry, but no. As far as I know that's how all of these all-in-ones work. If the printer doesn't work because the cartridges run dry, nothing else works either. They don't allow you to use the scanner as a standalone piece.

Find a friend with high-speed access.
Buy a USB memory-stick.

On your friend's computer, access CANON's web-site:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=12764

and download from the web-site to the USB memory-stick.

Carry the memory-stick back to your computer, and install.

Printing directly from a memory stick via the MP600 USB port


Your printer may not have the ability to recognize the files you have in the stick. Did you ever think of that?
