When I select to scan directly from the printer it says "Set the PC to start scanning." When I select Auto Scan from the "Solutions Menu" on Win7, then click the green "Scan" button, it waits for a considerable time for "warming up", then shows "Scanning" for several minutes, then nothing. No scan is performed. Any help is appreciated.

"Scanner is warming up" taking a loooong time has been reported by several users and the answers provided are far off the mark. There can't be anything wrong with USB, network, etc. because printing works OK.
Why can't a proper fix (or at least an explanation) be provided??

Thanks for your prompt response.
re your first three questions: 1) this is Windows 10, 2) scanning from the computer, 3) printer is connected wirelessly.
re your last question- I can't say for sure but I would assume wireless.
The most important point to me is that this problem surfaced only recently; for several years the warm-up period was normal (~20-30 seconds) with the same setup and configuration as it was when this problem appeared.
Would appreciate your thoughts...

Something might be blocking communication to/from the scanner. Try uninstalling the MX890 series MP Drivers and the MP Navigator program on the computer. Then reinstall the latest versions from our website. If the issue persists, try to temporarily disable any firewall or anti-spyware programs on the computer to see if this will allow scans to complete.

Before I uninstall/reinstall, etc., let me ask this question: Doesn't the printer/firmware itself sense when the scanner has warmed up?? I'm having trouble understanding why "blocked communication" or something in the computer software could affect the warmup period.
(forgive me for asking this out of total ignorance of how it all works; it's just that it strains my credibility somewhat)
