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.

    Thanks for trying but I do not have the Canon utilities in my all programs. Still not able to fix.

    Take this link to Canon, select your operating system from the pull down and when downloads are offered select MP Navigator EX , whatever version that is available will be fine.
    Download, save and install and you should be able to scan the same as my MP

I want to scan something into the computer but


Did you load the CD that came with the scanner? On my model (the 4530), it has to download an "Application List" in order to scan, and once it does, then I can pick the scan buttons on the printer. After it scans once, the Lexmark application will come up on the computer, and you will be able to scan from it's settings. Hope this helps, I had trouble figuring it out till I loaded the CD.

Nothing happens when i press scan button


Nothing will happen unless it's connected to a computer with scanning software running. If you want a copy you press copy and it will scan and make a copy, but if you want to scan you need the software to tell it how to scan, what you're scanning, and how to save the scanned image.

How to get scanned picture to computer press scan button on printer but nothing happens what am I doing wrong


I HAVE SO MANY SOLUTIONS FOR YOU:

1. CHECK IF YOU WIRED THE USB FOR THE PRINTER CORRECTLY TO THE COMPUTER

2. ONCE YOU SCANNED THE IMAGE SAVE IT TO SOME PLACE (EG. MY PICTURES

3.IF YOU MANUALLY SCANNED IT AND DID NOT SAVE IT OR YOU DONT NO HOW TO SAVE IT SCAN THE IMAGE THEN GO TO MY COMPUTER, THERE YOU WILL FIND YOUR PRINTER CLICK IT. IT WILL POSSIBLY SHOW THE PICTURES YOU HAVE SCANNED.

4.TAKE OUT THE USB AND PLUG IT BACK IN YOUR COMPUTER WILL SAY HP PRINTER FOUND OR FOUND NEW HARDWARE OR IT WILL MAKE A SOUND IF IT DOES NOT YOUR CONNECTION IS BLOCKED

I HOPE THESE WORK :)

I am trying to scan photos onto the computer


How is it connected? Via usb?  Have you tried powering the printer and pc off and back on?  Try to print something, go into your print que and make sure that there are no errors.  If using usb, try another port if you have one.  Also check your ink levels.  HP AIO wont work with low ink levels.

HP F2180 not scanning


I was having the same trouble. All you do is turn the printer on and make sure there is paper in the tray for it to print onto (obviously), then lift the lid (keeping it open) and place the piece of paper you are scanning onto the glass. The side you want to scan needs to be face down in the bottom left hand corner. Then instead of pressing the scan button (which did nothing for me either) press the black or colour button that is above it, depending on whether you want to scan in colour or just black and white. Worked for me! Hope it works for you too.
