MF 4880, unable to scan wirelessly. remote scan


Hi, Having trouble scanning wirelessly. Have an MF 4880dw all-in-one, get error 255,0,0 have followed anything I have found in the driver, have printer set to Remote scanner, etc. Using Win 7(64-bit). any help would be appreciated.



I have had the exact same problem for many months. Win 7 64 bit just like you.

Basically after wasting a stupid amount of time I gave up.

You are supposed to be on IPv4 not v6 on your LAN but that hasn't helped me.

It's hard enough even scanning over USB to this thing.

I gave up and use an older Canon MF for scanning over USB and I use the 4880dw for printing only.

It's very frustrating and frankly I regret my MF4880dw purchase.


Sorry I can't help.

PS who has time to troubleshoot all this stuff? I have work to do!
