Cannot scan/problems installing to Mac laptop

Posted by on

    Yes, it's definitely compatible. I can print fine to the printer, but can't use the scanner at all. It says the scanner "cannot be found." I have installed the software.

Hmm.ok...we're assuming whatever this printer is, that's it's compatible with the OS you're using. I recommend you double check it.

Canon mf 4018


Hello - Canon does not provide a Mac driver that supports scanning, BUT if you have:

An Intel Mac

and
OS 10.5 (Leopard) or later (including snow leopard, lion, mountain lion and even mavericks)
there IS a fix: Just download the free Vuescan software for Mac, then use it to scan with the MF4018.

Go to: http://www.hamrick.com
Download Vuescan for Mac OS X

Install it, and start the application. It will recognize any scanners attached.
NOTE: If Vuescan asks you to identify your printer, you will not see the MF4018 listed. Choose the MF4010 instead - the 4010 and the 4018 use the same drivers.

I have a cannon MP 160 printer/scanner. It does not work on a Mac


Uninstall all your drivers (and delete the preferences) and download the Mac drivers from this link. The drivers that came with your printer were developed before Snow Leopard came out.

Can't get it to scan. It prints, it copies, but no scanning. It's a photo I'm trying to scan. I switched to Mac from PC recently. If that's the problem, what do I do? Tks.


Did you install the Canon software?
Most canon's will print without any software being installed on a mac. Scanning needs the software.
Anyway. Do this.
Open your applications folder and look for an app called "Image capture" When it opens up it should - all being well - recognise the scanner and do an automatic preview. Once it's done that select what you want to scan by drawing a box around it, this should activate the scan button. Press that and it will probably ask what you want to do with the scan and what sort of file you want.
I'll leave that up to you to decide.
You may find that the next time you try to scan (on another occassion that is - not doing another scan straight away after the first) that the scanner is not recognised. It happens periodically with some Canon MPs and I don't know why. If it does happen, the easiest solution is to restart the mac. Sometimes unplugging the USB and replugging sorts it.

Lexmark 2600 scanning to MAC-no can do


Edward, I have this same problem. Were you able to solve it? Anyone, can you help? I have installed the drivers. When I connect the printer to my Mac, it launches ImageCapture and previews the scan fine. But I am unable to get the "scan" button to become active, adn there is no place to save the scan. If I click "save pdf to iphoto" it saves a pdf of the entire screen, rather than just the photo. Appears not to be Mac compatible for scanning purposes. Thank you for your help.

Scan function won't work with Mac OS10.5.5 & Airport


I plugged the printer cable directly to my laptop instead of trying to scan using the airport wireless router. Plugging it in did the trick.
Thank you,
