When you installed your Canon, you should have installed some drivers and programs with it. If you haven't installed them, you'll need to find the disc and do so first. Specifically, you need the scanning program. Canon products come with MP Navigator which supports scanning. My computer also has ABBYY FineReader, other programs should work too.

Once you've done this, make sure you are logged in and the printer is turned on. Press the scan button on the printer. Now press the Black button, like you were going to copy something. When you do this, you should get a dialogue on your computer asking what you want to do. In the list, select your scan program. It should launch, and then you can scan.

If pressing the Black button doesn't allow you to launch the program, you can also launch it yourself. Navigate to it from Start, then All Programs, then CANON Utilities. Your scanning program should be somewhere in there.

Good luck!

Nothing happens when i press scan button


Nothing will happen unless it's connected to a computer with scanning software running. If you want a copy you press copy and it will scan and make a copy, but if you want to scan you need the software to tell it how to scan, what you're scanning, and how to save the scanned image.

Nothing happens when I press the scan button


When you press scan, the unit must be connected to your computer and the computer needs scanning software running, if you want to make a copy you press copy and it will scan and print, in order to scan it needs to know where and how to scan and where to store the image.
