Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Canon MP830 wont scan

My Canon MP830 all-in-one was scanning fine and until I reinstalled it on my newer Dell, now everything works but the scanner. The computer doesn't seem to recognize it. I even went to device manager and update drivers it seems to recognize the Canon hardware but the scanner software part is undetected. I have installed and unstalled several times. I was going to attempt again to reinstall software but to make matters worse I have somehow lost my installation disc!

How can the fax and printer work but not the scanner?

    Have same problem.

    Gina, I have the same problem also. All was working well until today and all of a sudden the scanner doesn't work. It says that the driver is not found or compatible etc. Did you get any solutions? I tried Canon and they were no help whatsoever. Looking at Google I see that many people are having problems with the scanner.

    Let me know if you make progress and I will do nthe same for you. Good luck! Craig

I have a canon mp830. When scanning to pc, the MS Publisher app opens (or is suggested to open) which is fine, but no image comes across. It does not appear that the scanner is working although it copier...


When the Publisher application opens sometimes you have to manually scan the image from the software. When you press scan from the printer this only prompts the Pc to chose a program to open the image with. Allow the publisher app to fully open and look for an icon that says scan now or something similar then you should be able to see the document in the publisher software.

Canon MP830 wont scan.


hi Jackelle21.
i have had a look around the internet and all i can find out from going into forums is that the problem might be because you need to download what they are calling (mp navigator)
so not sure if this is what you have to do.but if you go to this link you will see download sites to where you can get it.



mp navigator download Google Search

New installation 810, printer works A1, scanner won't work


Uninstall and reinstall the software. Normally the software installed on the computer controls the scanner functions for the all in one dell stuff. Check dells site also for any updates that might correct this issue.
