You may have a printer driver error.

Remove the USB cable from the PC.

Uninstall the printer from Add/Remove Programs from control panel.

Get your printer driver with the CD that came with it and install the printer again. Or download latest printer driver from canon - type "canon mp510 driver" into google.

Install new driver.

If its still not working, it may just be a connection problem between your computer and the scanner - check the USB cable is ok.

If its not that (more than likely not) then the workaround is to go into MPNavigator on your PC (start programs, printers, Canon MP510, Canon Utlilities, MP Navigator 3.0 (or whatever version ures is ))

then you need to set a short cut to that... it allows you to scan directly from that program.


Hope it works

Hi
I think you will need to run the cd installer again to install the scanner driver on your printer.

You can check if the driver of the scanner was successfully installed once you view on the Scanners & Cameras inside the Control Panel and see the image of your printer scanner. It means it is connected and ready to be used. If you can not see the icon of the printer scanner there, then, it could not be installed or the printer is attached to other pc in the network.

Remember to use the printer as scanner, it should be attached locally to the pc you are using. Pressing the Scan button in the printer will save the scanned documents in the computer as pdf files.
In order to save the documents as jpeg files, you must need to use the scan option on the Scanners & Cameras inside the Control Panel.

Hope it helps. Just post back if you still have questions.

I WANT TO USE THE SCANNER BUT, I DON'T NOW HOW, It go to the printer all the time, could you please help me ? I have the EPSOM STYLUS BX300F PROFESSIONAL, PRINTER,SCANNER,FAX,PHOTOCOPIER.


Basically, you can use the scanner in two ways. Please open the scanner cover and place the document or image you want to scan face down.

1. Press the SCAN button (color button = color scanning, black button = monochrome scanning). then your scanner will scan the document or image in the scanner tray.

2. Go to the scanner program installed in your computer when you installed the printer. Open it and then click the command button SCAN.

Note: Make sure that you installed the Scanner software when you installed the printer. Without the software, your scanner will not work. Please reinstall the printer including the scanner software.

Copier feature (Black or Color) only produces a Black page


I beleive you are not able to make a color copy, once try to scan from the computer or all-in-one to check whether the scanner mechanism is working properly or not, if the scan comes out fine then remove the color cartridge and clean the copper contacts of the cartridge with soft cotton cloth and also check the ink level of the cartridge, if the issue persists replace the color cartridge and if even the scan does not comes out good then there is an issue with the scanner mechanism.
