It's either a corrupted scanning program or a corrupted scanning system file. I would suggest that you try to uninstall then reinstall the scanning program that you're using or maybe just scan using resident programs like microsoft paint for windows systems or image capture for mac systems. If it works on these resident programs (PAINT and IMAGE CAPTURE) then we know that the software that came with your unit may be corrupted. Uninstall it including its registry entries then reinstall it (just the scan program).

I saw the error "an error occurred during preview. if the scanner is being used. please wait for it to complete the task.and then click preview" when iam attempting to preview the scanned pictur how c


If you continue to get this kind of error after restarting the computer, you may need to update the scanner's device drivers or reinstall the included software. You should also make sure only one program or application is attempting to use the scanner by closing all but the one program you are trying use with the scanner. One last note - always either let the program you are scanning to operate the scanner or let the scanner invoke its default application by pressing the scan, fax or copy buttons on the scanner. Do not for instance try and scan an image into a running program that initiates the scanning process itself while also invoking a scan from the scanner's control panel. The two operations will conflict.

Stop your printer running while you are scanning photos.
It defines error because your printer and scanner running simultaneously.
Eject your printer while scanning.

Try turning the printer off for 60 secounds and see if the reboot will solve the problem. Do make sure all cables are connected properly so your computer will be able to load the correct drivers at start up of the printer.

Scanner part of my system quit working.


Hi

I understand the issue, many HP all in one printer can print, but they don't scan. you might a error message "Error occurred while communicating to scanner device..". Before we uninstall the software, we can try resetting the USB composite Devices.Just follow the below steps.

1.Right click on MY computer ->Properties->Hardware->Device manager.

2.You will get Device manager window popping out.

3.Scroll down to "Universal Serial BUS controllers".Click on the (+) sign.

4.Check for the "USB Composite Device" and right click on it, click Uninstall.(IMPORTANT NOTE:WE HAVE TO UNINSTALL THE PRINTER'S USB COMPOSITE DEVICE, TO KNOW WHETHER IS THE PRINTER'S USB COMPOSITE DEVICE, RIGHT CLICK ON USB COMPOSITE DEVICE AND PROPERTIES,look for wat location says, Eg -LOCATION : HP OFFICEJET 6100.

5.Disconnect the USB and reboot the PC.

6.Connect the USB after reboot, you will get popup "Found new hardware".Then the Drivers will be installed Automatically.

Please response after trying this.

Thanks

Error - Scanner could not be initiliazed


I have a MacBook Pro - a year and a half old - and recently upgraded to Leopard, which caused all sorts of problems with my HP 8160 photosmart (which worked pretty well before that).  I downloaded the necessary drivers/softward from HP for Leopard and it worked okay - but than I also started getting the "scanner cannot be initialized" messages (doing scan all wireless).  Anyway, all I did was go to applications, drag the HP softward to the trash and then went back to the HP site and downloaded the software and drivers again, and ran through the simple installation process again and now my scanner works again. Don't know why - but saw the suggestion on another site and it worked for me.  Here is the link to the HP site for software/drivers - select your operating system and it will direct you to the right page.

Problem with an CanoScan 8400F, just started 2 days ago. I have tried all the usual things pwr off, usb, uninstalled driver, downloaded latest, get the same error each time. Code: 2,178,0. I even hooked...


Try this:

Open the CanoScan Toolbox.
Click the Save option.
Put a check in the box that states "Display the Scanner Driver".
Click Scan.
Click the Advanced Mode tab.
Make sure Select Source is set to "Platen".
Click the Preview button at the top left.
If the error still occurs, then most likely it will be a service issue.

One thing to check...see if the inside lamp illuminates when you turn the scanner on using the power button at the back left side of the scanner. If you get no light, then as mentioned before, then it will most likely be a service error.
