Question about Canon PIXMA MX870 Wireless Office All-in-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have a new Canon MX870 on wireless connection. All funtions are recognized and work from wireless laptop (Windows XP). Also have a pretty new Dell PC (upgraded from XP to Windows 7 Ultimate) connected by ethernet to Linksys router (WRT54G). It required Canon tech support and a bit of work but eventually got Dell to 'find' Canon. But I cannot get MP Navigator EX functionality on Dell PC. (I can on laptop.) VPNs and firewalls are off during all downloads, (re) installs and restarts. Everything is updated to the hilt... Ideas? Patches?

I would try the canon website to see if there are any updates to your printer.

Cannot scan with Canon MX870. Error code 5,145,61 Windows XP Wired LAN connected printer and laptop reinstalled Print/scan/fax S/W - still no scanning. Printing OK. ???


My solution was to open the MP Navigator application and then click the preferences at the top right. There is a product name dropdown. In my case the incorrect MAC address was chosen (denoted by "Network:XXXXXXXXXXX"). Once I chose the other address it worked perfectly.

You cannot just add network printer on Windows XP without the printer software. You can only install it on Windows 7 with no software.

You need to get the canon MX870 software and run it on the computer you want to print files from. 'Before you do it, make you have already setup the printer to connect to your router and also make sure that it is connected to your router before you run the software.

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/printers_multifunction/office_all_in_one_inkjet_printers/pixma_mx870#DriversAndSoftware

Select Windows XP (NOT WINDOWS XP 64) then download and install the first file "mp68-win-mx870-1_04-ea24.exe" Run it and it will show you options. Choose setup wireless there you go! Make sure you are connected to the-same router the printer is connected to.

Please rate 4 stars if this solved your problem. Thanks

Check the scanning unit by copying something on the platen. If this does not work, you have a defective scanning system. If it does work, check connections between the PC and the MX870.
Please let me know if this works. If not we can investigate further. Thanks.

Canon PIXMA MX870 Wireless Printer works with Snow Leopard OS?


The MX870 is compatible with Mac OS X, all versions. I think the CD that comes with the unit will have the Mac Snow Leopard drivers on it, but if not you will be able to download them here.

Almost the exact same problem. New 4350d Canon printer trying to connect it with Dell 8300 with XP. The computer says it does not recognize. Tried everything - reinstall drivers, download drivers, tried every USB port, swapped cables, spoke with Canon support and finally took the printer back and got a new one (Canon support person decided the USB board must be bad). New machine - same old problem.
