When you scan whether from the LCD control panel or even launching the scanning from the software, you need to identify what you want to do whether to scan to PC or save as pdf or as an attachment. I read the manual and there is no specify button whether you the LCD panel of software application. When you scanned the page, did you get a partial scan or nothing? If you got a partial scan then I think there might be something wrong w/the printer that is triggering the CIS(Contact Image Sensor) to quit. It might be either or both hardware and software. I suggest you take it to Canon for check up.
If you don't get anything, then did you sepcficy where you want to scanned image to go?

Hp printer scanning prblm


Are you able to make copies only (just press copy color or copy balck and check)
And are you able to scan pictures.
If yes then make sure you are scanning from HP Director as Scan documents and follow the on screen direction.
If you do not get the option to scan documents then in HP Director go to> Settings> Scan Documents settings> You will see a option saying promt for these setting at the time of Scan> Put a check mark on that and click on Apply and ok and then try scanning document.
If this does not work the go to Start> Control panel (or Start> Settings> Control panel> Then printer and other hardware or Scanners and cameras> then Right click on the Printer icon> and scan from the options there.

Scanning with Canon Pixma MP450


I just did it then! With help from solution posted Feb 08 leave the acual scanner alone can be done from the computer. Steps:

1. Go to - start - control panel - printers & hardware - scanners.
2. Once inside the scanners folder just click once on the scanner icon (mine is called WIA Canon) so it is highlighted.
3. Then click on the toolbar 'File' > 'scan', then select the correct program from the list (mine was MP Navigator 2).
4. Use the MP Navigator program to select "scan photo/document", follow the instructions. At the bottom if the window that is open you can change the document type to PHOTO or DOCUMENT!

This is where the problem lies it is scanning the document as a photo which is why it is coming out as multiple documents.

Scanner not working


Hi,

I understand that you are unable to scan after upgrading the compuer from ME to XP.

Please follow the below given instructions to resolve the issue.

Check for the communication between the computer and the printer as scanning needs bidirectional communication unlike printing.

To isolate the issue I suggest you to try scanning from the Windows Image acquisition(WIA) wizard on the computer.

Follow the below steps to Scan using WIA

1.Verify that the all-in-one product power is turned on and the printer cable is properly connected.

2.Click Start then Click All Programs then Click Accessories then Click Scanner and Camera Wizard.

3.Follow the Scanner and Camera Wizard instructions to scan images to the computer.

If you are unable to scan using WIA, confirms that the issue is with USB drivers, please follow the below given instructions to refresh USB drivers:

1. Save and close all programs that are currently running.
2. Click Start, select Shut Down, and choose Restart the computer.
3. Press the F8 function key, this will display the Windows Startup menu.
4. Select Safe mode.
5. After Windows loads in Safe mode, right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties.
6. Select the Hardware tab and click the Device Manager button.
7. In the Device Manager Window, double-click the Universal Serial Bus controllers.
8. Right-click the device listed under Universal Serial Bus controller and select Uninstall.
9. Click OK to confirm the removal of the device.

NOTE: Repeat steps 8 and 9 until all the devices under Universal Serial Bus Controller are removed.

The USB port is now uninstalled.

Now, restart the system. The system automatically detects and reinstalls the USB port.

Then try scanning from WIA and if that works try scanning from HP Director.

Please click on Start>>Programs>>HP>>HP Director.

If unable to scan from HP Director, search for the file " hpqscnvw " in C Drive which is the executable file for Scanning.

Double click on My Computer to open it > C Drive > Programs files > HP or Hewlett Packard > Digital Imaging > Bin Folder. Check for the file " hpqscnvw " there.

If found double click on the file to and try scanning. You can also save the short cut of the file to desktop and can use that file for scanning.

Run the scan diagnostic utility to resolve the issue.
