    I do not have credit cards or payment options, am retired, have no pension and needs catered for by my children, so I could not go further with my search for a solution and quit the website. Thank you for the response.

Rubbish. It means you have the lock slider in the LOCK position and the scan head is unable to move back to starting position.

That normally means that the imaging mechanism has shifted off of the tracks that it moves on when it scans your document. This is usually something that is covered under warranty if you still have one. If not, you may have to pay to get it repaired or replaced. This is not something that is easily fixed if you aren't familiar with scanner components.

Please can u tell where i can get a WIA driver download


Hi ,
WIA is included in Windows . Go to "Start \ Devices and Printers " and double click on the scanner's icon . I use a third party free twain program working fine in WIA mode : http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10711598.html
You first need to make sure the last valuable original driver/software of your unit is correctly installed , even if it isn't good for W7 or Vista .
Regards .

Canoscan Lide 30 - want to use on laptop running XP Pro


Did you restart your computer after you downloaded your drivers and software? Did you select the correct operating system? Make sure the USB cable is plugged into the computer and the scanner...Open the toolbox and click scan or save and check to see if the scanner makes any noise or lights up...If you are using Windows XP then make sure you have downloaded the "TWAIN" driver and the "WIA" driver (two seperate downloads)

I have a Canon scanner 5000f. All of a sudden the computer won't recognize it and says it is "unable to select Twain Source." What do I do?


First you need to follow the instructions for installing the scanner. It is important whether you connect the scanner before the software is installed and whether you work from the new hardware found box or just install the driver as software. It sometimes varies between operating systems as well.

Sometimes the twain files can become corrupted. Since other devices like digital cameras use the twain files they aren’t erased with a driver uninstall or overwritten with an install. If the twain files are gone the driver install will also install them.

Uninstall ScanGear (I think that is the Canon driver software) and remove the scanner if it is still showing in device manager and control panel under scanners. Unplug the USB.
Do a search for twain and delete all you find in the Windows folder. There is probably a folder and several files – delete them all. Do not remove any twain files not in the Windows folder.
Dig out the instructions and reinstall the scanner exactly according to them.

Twain drivers


The problem was with the scanner,it was not twain compliant

So the 2 ways left with me was :

1.Download twain drivers for my scanner and install it.

2.Use wia32.dll

I chose second option as i didnt found any twain driver for my scanner.

Hope this can help any one.

CanoScan 4400f


uninstall all drivers and software that cam with the scanner, and then try installing the software again before connection the scanner... this is a problem when there are two different twain drivers, look for C:\Windows\twain_32\CNQ4803(2) see if there is a driver in there.
