Scanning on my PIXMA MP150

I have lost my directions and have something to scan. I have no idea how to do it. Is there a direction manual online that I can use or could you just tell me and I'll write it down. Thanks.

My PIXMA MP150 will not scan and keeps flashing on B any ideas???

if it will still print I have no idea but if not it probably means there is something wrong with your black cartridge - a lot of these printers need both cartridges working before they will even scan

There are no directions on how to use the scanner on the MX320 printer. How do I know if I have the right program and if I have how do I manage to scan?


Scanning Methods
You can select from the various scanning methods.
>If You Want to Edit or Print the Scanned images MP Navigator EX enables you to edit the scanned images, such as optimizing or trimming. You can also start application software from MP Navigator EX to edit or print the scanned images. For detailed operations of MP Navigator EX, refer to the Scanning Guide on-screen manual. You can also use the Operation Panel to open MP Navigator EX as well as open it using the computer.

>If You Want to Scan Originals with Advanced Settings ScanGear enables you to scan originals with advanced settings such as the resolution. For detailed operations of ScanGear, refer to the Scanning Guide on-screen manual.
Besides the above-mentioned methods, you can use a TWAIN- or WIA- (Windows Vista and
Windows XP only) compliant application software and the Control Panel (Windows Vista and
Windows XP only) to scan originals with this machine. For detailed operations, refer to the
Scanning Guide on-screen manual.
>Opening MP Navigator EX using the Operation Panel
>>(Macintosh only) Prepare your computer before scanning. This operation is not necessary for Mac OS X v.10.4.x.User's Guide on-screen manual.
>>Turn on the machine.
>>Load the original document on the Platen Glass or the ADF.
>>Press the SCAN button, then press the Color or Black button.

I found these directions from your Canon PIXMA MX310 User's Manual online (page 24). Other functions are available for reading.

To make sure you have got the correct program that you are using, uninstall all associated programs from your computer thru "Programs and Features" that can be found in Control Panel. Then, you may download your printer's drivers and softwares thru this LINK. Make sure to download the appropriate version for your Windows.

NOTE: Keep in mind that the drivers and softwares are limited to the manufacturer's release.

I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!

Thanks for using Fixya!

How do you use the scanner?

Hi woolyj,
I'm not familiar with this model, but the manual should have this information. I've put direct links to the manual for both Windows and Mac below.
In Windows 7 and Windows XP, there is an included Scan utility. In Windows 7, click start and type scan into the search box. This will locate the scanning software. Choose file, new scan to start scanning. The process is similar in Windows XP.

I cannot get my pixma mp150 all in one to scan when i press the scan button

Please check if your scanner is connected to the computer and both are turned on. For the scanner to work directly from the printer your ink levels need to be accurate (dont ask why) however, if you have MP Navigator and connected to a PC, then i suggest you use that. It will scan even with low, unknown or zero ink levels.
You can download MP Navigator from here

The "Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2" disk that it is prompting you for came with your computer itself, not the printer. It's most likely labelled "Setup" or "restore" disk - just put it in the drive when prompted and you should be all set!
