Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have a Canon Pixma500 (have had it for a while and still think it's a great printer/scan/copier). I just changed computer from an iMac to an iBook. The printer does not show up in the Applications folder or the bar and I no longer have the installation cd-rom... what do I do? Can I down load something and do the set up with out the cd-rom? Thank you!

Important information from Canon

The manuals off the Drivers and Downloads tab below can be read with Adobe Reader (free). If you need a copy use the following link and click the Get Adobe Reader Button.
http://www.adobe.com


The Drivers and Downloads tab from the following will access the available Mac OS X software -- Choose Mac OS X as the Operating System

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=BoxContentsTabAct&fcategoryid=238&modelid=11995#DownloadDetailAct

Using the preceeding link again this time click the support and service tab Enter Leopard in the search text and click Search

Provides 30 additional links to information that may be useful.

When the scanning software is made available in the future (per the first link), I expect you will find it on the Drivers and Downloads tab.

There isn't anything you can do to solve this problem. The printer is not supported by OS X.

There is a setting that can be accessed via your computer under printer set up. It sounds like the printer has been set up for monochromatic prints.

How do you scan a photo?


- press "scan" button, then press "start" button (either black or color)
- a small window (MP Navigator EX - MX310 series) should appear on your computer screen
- you can then choose one of the option there
- place a document or photo you want to scan on the canon plate face down
- then back to your computer screen and click "scan"

i have iMac and the pop up window says (MP Navigator EX - MX310 series) when i press "start" button on Canon
now i'm not sure if it'll say (MP Navigator EX - MX310 series) on windows PC
hope this helps. good luck.

Trying to scan a picture to my computer


Scarlet, I have a mid 2007 iMac and find that the MX310 does not always behave with OS X Leopard. To scan via software. Turn on the printer. Select SCAN from the printer. Press either PRINT (Black or Color) buttons on the printer. A fax - scan icon will appear in the dock and a window will open allowing you to fax. Now comes the problem. Often it will not scan the first time, I almost always get the message ¨SCAN FAILED¨ the first time I scan. Just click scan again without touching the printer will usually work. Sometimes I have to play with the settings on the left side of the scan window, switching between duplex and simplex or B & W and color and back. Usually this frees up what ever is stuck. Once it works, it works! After the scan, quit the scan and save to either a PDF or one of the photo file types (JPEG, TIFF, etc.) The results wind up in the PICTURES folder under the name of the printer and then the current date.
