You need to Unplug it, install the CD that came with it, and when the software tells you to plug it in... then plug it in and follow the prompts to finish the software/driver install.

It's fairly easy but many people plug it in first, when you need to install the CD that came with it first and ONLY plug it in when the software tells you too.

Hope this helps!

When i try to scan picture on the Canon Pixma MG6150, i get a message saying "set the PC to start scanning". i dont know what that means


You need to install and set up the Canon MP Navigator EX (if available for your OS) in order for the computer to "hear" and launch the scan program. This only works for USB connected printers; a bad USB cable could break the feature. Try a different cable (no longer than 6' long) and a direct connection if you are using a USB hub. The software doesn't correctly respond to the buttons when the MG6150 is a networked printer. http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/Consumer_Products/products/Fax__Multifunctionals/InkJet/PIXMA_MG_series/PIXMA_MG6150.aspx?type=download&page=1 lists all of the software available. Use the drop-down menus to limit the list. I found it at the bottom of the second page of files for Vista drivers and software in English.

Next launch the Navigator program and manually start a scan. Then use that scan to give you the defaults for future scans. To launch scans from the scan to computer button on the scanner. Go to Preferences and the Scanner Button Settings Tab. Set an Event as Save to PC and then Scan Type to Auto Scan. Set additional settings based on the manual scan.
If you are using the all-in-one as a networked printer, you can scan manually by launching the software from the computer or scan to a memory card or USB drive from the control panel on the printer. See the Canon support page (Scan to memory card or USB drive) for details. Start here: http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/Consumer_Products/products/Fax__Multifunctionals/InkJet/PIXMA_MG_series/PIXMA_MG6150.aspx?faqtcmuri=tcm:13-776471&page=1&type=faq .
If the MP Navigator isn't available for your OS, try Windows Fax and Scan for Windows 7 and 8. Look for a similar program on the Mac or Unix systems. Then you will need to do the manual scan as above.

I hope this helps.

Hello Steffen, We have a 8830 scanner Synergix.


Hey Panos,

What are you trying to feed a paper roll or single sheets or are you telling me you cant feed the original to be scanned? Can you copy or print internal status pages from your Xerox?

But it sounds like thats not the problem as it isnt hooked up and your lappy as it dont have a serial port you only have USB...... but this is a network printer.... do you have a network or it is just a stand alone lappy?


So I guess.. stand alone lappy to Xerox.... you will need to network it... and if it just a stand alone lappy ie no network then you will need a non standard network cable called a crossover cable to go from scanner to lappy but you will also need to set up a network with them manually asigning IP's of each to be on the same network, then hooking with a crossover (normally red never blue) network cable, and you will also need the software installed on this lappy no matter which way we go

Spose you could try a serial to usb adaptor but they will have issues propally when trying to use that sort of interface on scanning, normally one has the print server that is an option on your scanner to interface with the likes of a laapy, so I dont think it would workor a good idea to go with an adaptor

Well come back with some more info because the more info you can give me about your problem the better i can understand it.. cheers

We are talking about one of these beastys.. User Manual

Cheers

You have 2 options depends on the local prices..
1. Get the manuals and drivers from the below link

you needs to buy 1. Power Cord 2. data cord (computer usb to printer port)

I dont have the on screen manuals in order to use my Canon Mp210 scanner The printer and scanner are all in one. I put a photo or document in the scanner and turn it on, it seems to be on and ok, except I...


To get the manual go here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp210#BrochuresAndManuals .

Drivers and software for supported OS versions are available here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp210#DriversAndSoftware . If you want the scanner to work when you press the buttons on the unit, you will need the MP Navigator.

If you connected the USB cable and got a generic driver, uninstall that driver and then disconnect the USB cable before installing the software from the above site. This generic driver usually only runs the printer.

There is a monitor program that listens for button presses on the all-in-one. This must be running to scan from the unit. However, the software must be set up with destinations and default settings before the MP Navigator will work with those buttons. Thus you should first launch the software from the computer and learn the resolution and other details to set as your defaults. Place documents face down on the glass or face up in an Automatic Document Feeder.

If you have some versions of Windows, you can acquire scans if the basic Canon driver is installed without the full Canon software. For XP, Vista and Win7, Paint will work - File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan. Vista and Win7 both have Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan). Vista includes Photo Gallery which also imports from the scanner. (For Win7 this is part of the Windows Live free download but isn't preinstalled.)

I hope this helps.

Smartbase MP360 Scanner Not Identified by MS Vista


One thing to check and be sure of is that your printer cable (USB) is definately a USB 2.0 cable. Canon have an issue with their printers with scanners in that the data flow sometimes isn't sufficient when an older USB cable is used. The slightest drop of data on startup or during scanning will cause a stop.

Worth trying and has sometimes solved the problem for my customers.
