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:

Scanner


Hello Dear,
do u wish to aks that you are not able to see the scanned document for editing or reusing, if it is so you need to open scanner wizard from my computers where you will find an icon showing scanner and written MP470, just double click on the same and select the required software you want in which your scanned document will open.Please revert for more clarification.
Warm Regards,
Manoj Joseph

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.

Canon MP470 will print and copy but not scan


The same thing happen to me. I have Windows XP. Try using the Scanners and Cameras Wizard.

Connect the MP470 to your computer, have it on and place the item to scan onto the scanner.

  • Go to the Start Menu
  • Click on Printers and Faxes
  • On the left of the screen there is an area titled, "Other Places"
  • Under the Other Places heading, click Scanners and Cameras
  • Select the WIA Canon MP470 device(double-click) This should open the Scanner and Camera Wizard.
  • Click Next and you will be taken to the Choosing Scanning Preferences screen. Here you can select picture type. If you click the Preview button your device will scan your item and display it in the preview box. Otherwise click Next.
  • Click Next to name the file, choose a file format and where to save it.
  • Click Next and your device should scan your item.
