MP610 Scanner Not Working
i was having the same problem as the original poster of this thread, where nothing was happening, and this was what i did:
using a mac, i:
- spotlight searched "image capture" (that's what it's called) and opened up the app
- it somehow "woke up" my printer, aka connected the printer to the app, and it would scan the overview, but not scan the final selection that i made. see comnomad's post if you don't know the difference between overview vs. scan.
- so i restarted my printer
- i then did the overview, selected the parts that i wanted, and scanned it again

My Printer isn't printing the correct colors.
Try this take an old empty cartridge and mix some ink cleaning fluid into each of the tanks. Now take some alcohol and a Q--tip and wipe the heads on the contacts where the cartridge comes in contact with the printer head.
There are three contacts that control color and one that controls the black . Clean with the alcohol, wipe with a Kleenex or a dry q-tip lightly. Now lightly shake the used printerhead to mix the cleaner into the residual ink that remains in the Printer cartridge. Now once the the cartridge has bee reinstalled in your printer go through a printerhead cleaning and head alignment evolution. Instructions for this should be in your printer manual which is a drop down program on the Printer Program Main File Icon. Some printers will automatically set up this program on the screen in easy to follow steps. If this doesn't work its time to get a new printer , add it to your Christmas list.

Missed lines across page
Take the print head out of the machine and sit it in a saucer of very hot ( just off boil) water about 10mm deep for a minute. Take it out and sit in on a pad of paper towel to dry briefly before returning it and the cartridges into the machine. Give it a deep clean and try again. If still no good, the print head has probably had it.

Problem using OCR with Canon MP610 all-in-one
I got this message too, before I installed an OCR program. It may be that you need to install one (or specify it, if you have one already). With my MP610, an installation disk was included that contained the OmniPage SE program for OCR. When I installed that on my computer, and told MP Navigator (another Canon-supplied program, that controls scanning) to use it as the "Open With" program for OCR, it worked.
