Question about Canon PIXMA MP470 All-in-One Printer

Open Question

I'm having trouble scanning documents from my Canon MP470 printer to my Macbook. I installed the latest Canon driver, but when I press the scan button & following prompts, the MP Navigator pops up then just disappears from my toolbar. I've tried opening MP Navigator from "System preferences" to scan manually that way, but it just keeps saying "Scan failed" -- ??

May be MP Navigator not compatible with Kaspersky 2009.

If you use KIS or KAS to protect your computer,disable KIS/KAS protection and try again.

I have same problem with my MP150 and after disable protection of my KIS2009, MP Navigator work perfectly.

Sorry for my bad English. I'm Vietnamese.

I have my printer connected to a Toshiba laptop running Windows Vista. my scanner is a Canon MP470 and I don't have the manual. can you tell me how to scan with this printer.


To scan an image in Windows Vista, do the following:
Go to Start > All Programs > Windows photo Gallery > Select the File Tab and select Import from Camera or Scanner.
It's a bit slow starting...but it will scan for you.

If you are still experiencing problems then download the latest drivers from canon here for your printer/scanner:

I am having troubles scanning pictures. When I press the scan button, nothing happens. How do I scan my pictures to go onto my computer?


My MP470 scans best useing this method: click start, click all programs, take Canon utilities, take MP navigator EX and Mp navigator EX again, scan/import should be chosen, if not choose it, have your pic on the platen and click photos/document, on the next screen click scan, after scan make selection from screen, click save, make selection as to where you want to store your pic. Browse and choose "my pictures" if no other desire. good luck and have fun.

I dont know how to get it to scan


Do you have the full featured software/driver installed? What OS are you using? Is the computer on and able to see the scanner of the all in one?
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=116&modelid=15403#DownloadDetailAct for the drivers.

Can you start a scan from the computer (MP Navigator or another scanning program (Windows 7 has Fax and Scan for example))?

If the computer doesn't see the scanner, try a new USB cable and plugging the all-in-one to a different USB port on the computer. If you have a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection. Scanners need a bi-directional communication that is very susceptible to signal loss problems that do not affect the printer.

If you did not install the full software before connecting the printer to the computer, you will have installed the OS's built-in basic drivers which does not support all of the buttons on the all-in-one but you should be able to start a scan from the computer.

I hope this helps.

Unable to scan a document


Ok have you installed ScanGear? and ALL the right drivers from the DVD or web site? You MUST install BOTH Printer Z& Scanner Drivers and ScanGear, you use ScanGear to scan with...it will work if drivers are installed correctly. Did you install as Administrator? If a 64 bit system,have you disabled driver signing at bootup press F8 and do so if not. Below is a link for the up-to-date manual. http://www.retrevo.com/support/Canon-MP470-Multifunction-Printers-manual/id/3124ci176/t/2/

Anyway here is a link for a scanning package it doesn't use any driver, you can use this to check functionality of scanner.

I have Canon Pixma mp470 won't scan to my computer


I also have a mp470. Try this before the driver download. Click Start, click all programs, select Canon utilities, select mp navigator, click on mp navigator again. On my pc this opens a window where I can select Scan/import from the platen or from a memory card. If this does not work here is a link to Canon to get your drivers. Note: turn off and uninstall your MP470 before installing the new drivers. Select your operating system from the list and select your desired drivers.

How do I scan a document to my computer with the Canon Pixma MP470 printer/scanner? I tried to press scan, but the document never shows up on my computer


Hello!

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Scanners and Cameras
then double click your scanner and follow the wizard

If your scanner does not shou up in the Scanners and Cameras folder,  then you need to install scanner driver located on the CD the Printer/scanner came with

Hope this helps!
