I am using a Canon
Code 1485 indicates trouble recognizing the ink cartridges. Make sure both are inserted properly, and that both are Cannon compatible.
Had paper jam and will not print
switch off and unplug the unit. open the cover and remove all paper inside. Be careful not to damage any bits inside, Canon is fairly fragile unfortunately. switch pc off, reconnect printer and restart both, it should print hopefully.
How do i know the mp490 printer is properly connected to the computer?
If this is a windows computer when you press ctlr and p the printer should be listed in the printer list. If it is not there and if this is a USB connected printer try reseating the cable or a different cable or a different usb port. If you still do not see it go to control panel, add new printer and select the printer from the list. These are the easy steps. It gets worse from there!!
How do i scan onto my computer from my canon mp490
First install the Canon full feature software (MP Navigator EX for Windows) for your OS. If Canon doesn't have a version for your OS, you can only scan by launching software on your computer. See http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp490#DriversAndSoftware
for the latest software and drivers. Make sure that the monitor feature runs at boot up (and isn't closed).
Next launch the software on your computer and use it to scan something. Under Preferences in the General tab, select the software that should acquire the scan and the folder in which you want the files stored. (In Windows, the ScanGear MP program should launch as well.) Adjust the resolution as needed. Make a note of the settings that work well for that type of scan.
Now, if you are using a USB connection to your computer, you need to set the Navigator to respond to the buttons on the all-in-one. This is under Preferences and the Scanner Button Settings tab. You need Auto > Save to PC.
If you have the all-in-one connected to your network, you must scan from the computer. (There is no way for the software to monitor button presses across the network.)
I hope this helps.
