Why won’t my wireless Canon printer scan to my computer?
You may need to update your printer/scanner driver. Connectivity is a possible issue – make sure any cables are secure, such as a USB connection. If your connection is wireless, be sure your Canon scanner is connecting to your WiFi – there should be an indication of communication on your scanner panel.
Can I scan with WIFI Direct?
Wireless Direct supports printing only. The other functions, such as scanning, will need to be used via another type of connection. You can use a Modem/Router to connect wirelessly, or a USB 2.0 Printer Cable directly from the printer to the computer.
