Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 500F Flatbed Scanner

2 Answers

Won't start When I tried to use my scanner today it made a 'moaning-grinding' sound when I plugged in the USB cord and then nothing happens. None of the four scanner buttons produces a result and the start-up screen does not appear on the MAC screen. Is it dead?

    Thanks for the help. I went to the 'applications' file and clicked on the scanner start-up and it said, "Please unlock your scanner." It took several seconds to locate the small slide-key on the back of the scanner that had inadvertently moved into the locked position. I unlocked the scanner and it is working fine.

I would suggest trying the scanner on another computer available PC or MAC, see if the same problem happens there.

    also plug the scanner directly to the computer, without any hubs in the way, also try another usb port.

It will not turn on. What do I have to do? I bought this some time ago but it has never been used.


I presume this is a scanner that uses a USB connection to your computer. You will find that it does just about nothing until you have it connected both to power and to a computer's USB port. You must also install the appropriate drivers and software. Only then will your computer activate the scanner when you actually try to scan something. The only thing that will activate with only the power cord connected is the scanning lamp inside it so lift the lid and connect the power cord. If the lamp comes on but nothing else, it's just doing what it's supposed to do.

When I turn on the scanner the light flashes but nothing happens the light never goes solid and nothing moves


I had this problem for a long time, but the scanner still worked. I went to adaptec dowload page, finally today, as I was getting concerned about the flashing green light on the scanner and today, I started to get error messages saying that there is no scanner connected to your computer. So download the latest SCSI Card update for your machine. I have an Apple Mac OS X. Your computer is obviously not recognising your SCSi card, if you have one. If you don't have one then I am not sure what to suggest, if your scanner connects using usb. I hope this helps.

3 lights were flashing, now no lights flashing & not on


it is always handy to state the brand and the type of connection when referring a fault.
if its USB the check in ctrl panel DEVICE MANAGER if there is a yellow exclamation mark.
same for serial ...against the scanner

if this exclamation is there it means that it does not recognise the scanner and will need to be reinstalled.
check that the serial plug is on firmly, both at scanner and computer, dont just look... undo and reseat on both. Ensure the POWER plug is connected firmly and that it IS switched on.. try something else in that plug and see if it works.

simple things are often overlooked and users thinking technicians are just stupid to ask these questions, but 9/10 it is the simple thing that causes the problem.

The scanner(travelscan pro 600) gets a no power or not connected message!


Go to Device Manager and most likely the travelscan pro 600 is not popping up under imaging devices where it should be. Unplug the scanner and plug it into a different USB port. Try this on all the USB Ports on the machine if it reappears in device manager then the software will work. If you are using a USB extention cord or USB hub get rid of them till you try all the ports. If it doesn't i would suggest contacting the manufacture and seeing if the scanner is still under warranty.

I am trying to reinstall HP Scanjet 5400c but it keeps telling me it can't initialize, no scanner recognized...WindowsXP.. it worked before, why not now?


I had similar problem with my UMAX scanner on numerous occasions. I now have this pg earmarked for quick reference! may help I don't know for sure but it is an easy test and if it works your good to go!
It is important that you connect the scanner's power and USB cables in the following order:
1. Plug the power adapter cord into the scanner and into an outlet. The scanner's power will then be on.
2. Connect the USB cable to the USB port on the
back or front of the computer.
NOTE: If you unplug the scanner's power ,you must also disconnect the USB cable from the computer. To resume use of the scanner, remove the power card, the the USB cable.

Sounds like a lot but the order is essential!
If it works, High lite Do unplug USB/unplug cable back of scanner/and plug cable back of scanner then USB!
Good Luck Hope this helps!

Scanning App won't open.


Actually, it's okay- I just installed the windows drivers under Boot Camp, and that seemed to 'reset' the scanner under OSX.
