Printing from Canon MP800 Operational Panel

DEar All, I cannot get the printer to scan to PC, or to PDF or to email from the operation panel on the printer itself. It will however copy direct from scan to print using Colour or Black buttons. The scanner works to any applicable software application on the PC.I have gone through the excercise of completely removing all the Drivers and software that came with the printer & re-installed. Even changed the USB port but no improvement. Getting a bit frustrating now. Any help is appreciated, regards Donald A

I had to change from USB 2.0 to USB 1.0 in my CMOS to get it to work.
The printer would get the request from the printer, pull in paper, then fail.
Give it a shot.

If you are using a Windows XP operating system, I do suggest that you use the Scan Option on the Control Panel.

Click on Start

Double click your printer's icon

At the end, this will save your scanned documents in jpeg files.
