Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

6 Answers

I have a Canon DR-2010C scanner that I just recently purchased. It works fine for a time and then it just locks up during scanning and after it locks it will not work again and gives an error message that says "cannot perform the task because the scanner is busy" I have uninstalled the scanner and reinstalled it a few time and got it working again, but, it takes a lot of time to get it back I really need to find a permanent fix because this this is taking to much time. Can someone please help?

Isolate the hardware - do you have another computer that you can try that scanner?

It may be a problem related to your Operating system and not with the Scanner. Please let me know more about the configuration and hardware present on your PC.

Hope after then I can provide you some ultimate solution.

Removing the software and reinstalling it using a "clean boot" may resolve the symptoms you are experiencing. Booting clean is a way to eliminate programs from conflicting with installation of software.

1. Open the Windows Control Panel.
2. Open the Add / Remove Programs window.
3. Locate the listing for the software and remove it. When prompted to remove the camera drivers files, click Yes.

Now download the latest version of the software for your OS from the manufacturer's website.

The following is the procedure for a 'clean boot'. I am assuming that you have XP. If you have a different OS, just let me know and I will send you the appropriate procedure to boot clean in that OS.

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG --> Click OK
2. On the General tab, choose Selective Startup
3. Uncheck Process SYSTEM.INI file
4. Uncheck Process WIN.INI file
5. Uncheck Load Startup Items
6. Click on the Services tab
7. At the bottom, check Hide All Microsoft Services
8. Uncheck all boxes in the window or click the button labeled Disable All
6. Click OK
7. Click Restart

After restarting, reinstall the downloaded software. Next, do the following:

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG--> Click OK
2. Replace checkmarks in the items that you previously removed them from.
3. On the General tab, choose Normal Startup
4. Click OK
5. Click YES, when asked to restart your computer

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

I hava a canon dr-2010c scanner. but when I scan the paper through capture touch 2.0 than scanning very fine but when I scan through capture perfect 3.0 than show black page scanning.


Normally it is advisable to use only one Scanning Software. The software has various files which may overwrite the previously installed version. The later version works good.

It is also possible that the brightness/contrast settings in Captureperfect 3 is not proper. Try scanning after altering these.

Canon dr-2010c device cannot be locked


I hope there is enough hard disk space is available in the drive/volume you are attempting to send the data. Scan in TIF compressed mode, uncompressed made uses large space.
Check if there is virus on your system. Uninstall and reinstall the drivers. Run scandisk to optimise disk performance.

My scanner won't scan. I get the message " Scanner is busy, operation can not be completed. Canon DR-2010C Driver Version 1.1.10805.18001 (-4437).


This may mean that something is using it or that something is interfering with it. Try turning everything off, your computer AND your scanner. Wait a minute or two and then turn your scanner on first and the turn your computer back on. When your computer boots back up don't open anything except the scanner. If your still getting the message then there is something else (another attached peripheral) that may be interfering with the scanner.

CapturePerfect ver 3 is on chargeable basis! You can download ver 2.0 from http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0022439.asp?model= Though this is listed under Canon DR 5020, it works fine with DR 9080C. DR 9080C has very intelligent features and ver 2 works fine. I do not know if there are addl features with ver 3.0. I have used for scanning over 500,000 docs.
