Customer Question

I have just purchased a Canon PIXMA MG2450. It is described as 'Print - copy - scan'. I note that it differs from a previous PIXMA that I had, in that it does not have a Scan button. However, it works as a Printer, through a USB connection. However, when I open the IJ Scan Utility it states that it is unable to communicate with the scanner and gives a 5,156,69 Error Code
