Question about Canon PIXMA MP780 All-In-One InkJet Printer
What OS do you have installed? Did you install the full-featured software or the Canon drivers? These are available here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp780#DriversAndSoftware . If you installed a generic driver from the OS, uninstall it and unplug the data cable (USB) before installing the Canon drivers. (The OS driver will work for the printer but not the scanner.) Next place the document face down on the glass or face up if you have a automatic document feeder.
Always do the first few scans from the computer. (The full software will hear the scanner buttons but you need a few things first. There are scan icons in the software that need to be programmed for the destinations and default locations. The monitoring program also must be running before the scan buttons on the all-in-one will work.) Launch the MP Navigator (double-click on the icon or from the Start Menu) and then the black & white or color scan. Set your resolution and contrast. Adjust these as needed and then Scan and OK. (You can do preview scans and then press an on-screen Scan button.) For more information see the documentation at the Canon site: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp780#BrochuresAndManuals . Remember the settings that give good results; you can use these settings to help you set the destinations and defaults for the scan buttons.
If you have Windows XP or later, you can scan without the MP Navigator in Paint (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint). Then choose File > Import from Camera or Scanner. In Vista and Win7, there is also Windows Fax and Scan that can acquire scans (New Scan). Vista also includes Photo Gallery with a similar feature; the program is available for Win7 in the Microsoft Live package.
I hope this helps.
