Hi Michael and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, is this a fresh / new install? Or has it been used successfully before and this issue recent?

What is the Operating System of the computer it is connected to? ...and how is it connected using what kind of cable(s) please?

Even if "...wont scan...", would it "COPY" as expected?

Hi, copy fine, when connected directly to my pc and it prints but documents only printing a few pages at a time then I need to choose to print 3-5 pages at a time and need to reset printer, and now wont scan.

I think its just printer settings, and it seems to default to fax, and I have to keep changing it to doc

hi, you still there?
Expert:  Benimur replied 1 year ago.

Tried a search of your "...fix my print before..." Unfortunately, it would not show.

Still, let's try the basics first; have you tried another USB port of your computer? ...another USB cable? check that there is only 1 instance of the Canon Color imageCLASS MF8280Cw installed in your computer? Or perhaps better yet, have you tried deleting previous installation including drivers and start fresh/new install?

If we can do screen share you can set the settings to work.

Expert:  Benimur replied 1 year ago.

I am currently mobile and located in another region hence neither would work.

Would you perhaps prefer another site member for a second opinion/alternate approach to your concern?
