I have been using a canon MG3100 printer/scanner for a while now. However, I cannot scan using the Solution Menu Ex software. An error message reads : Cannot scan for these reasons; Scanner is turned off-USB is disconnected, with an error code 5,156,61.
I can print using wi-fi and I can scan by going to Menu>Devices and Printers and right clicking on the printer icon.
I have noticed in preferences, in the Canon solution menu, it shows printer: MG3100 series printer WS. Scanner: MG3100 series (no WS).
How can I get the scanner on line to read MG3100 WS ???
Thanks for any help.
Please try the following to see if we can resolve your issue:
1. Open the MP Navigator on your Desktop or the Canon Utilities listing of the Start Menu.
2. Click Preferences.
3. In the Product dropdown menu, select the Network version of the printer.
4. Click OK.
Once this has been done, try scanning from the MP Navigator to test the connection. If this is successful, open the Solution Menu and try scanning from the program as well.
If the network option is not available, the drivers may have to be uninstalled and reinstalled. Please perform the following:
1. Click Start and open the Control Panel.
2. Open Programs and Features.
3. Uninstall the MG3100/MP Drivers and the Canon IJ Network Tool.
4. Close all windows that are open.
Once this has been done, please visit our website at the following link to download and install the latest MP Driver for the unit.
Once the unit has been reinstalled wirelessly, try scanning from the MP Navigator again.

pushing scan button on scanner does not do a thing and there is no other option for scanning from computer since mp program or what ever you call it works on windows 7. I tried downloading the software 6 times and it keeps telling me to add software for the mg3120. the software link is giving me bad files
