Pixma MX 860 scanner not working

New Contributor

I had to reinstall the drivers for my Pixma MX 860 (several times) because my wireless connections got messed up.  I got the printer reconnected, but now the scanner isn't working. I've tried downloading it several times, and I can't get it to work.  Every time you download the drivers, it installs a new copy onto the computer.  Any ideas on what's going on?  It was working just fine before the issue with the internet.

I'm using Win7 (SP1) Home Premium, 64-bit.  My internet connection is fine because I can print from the printer.  That was the initial issue; I lost my internet connection when Spectrum messed up my wi-fi.  I managed to get the printer re-connected, but I've lost the scanner part.

Someone sent a reply asking if reconnecting the internet solved th, it did not. That is why I am writing to this forum.  I still lhave no scanner function.
