When I scan an item (line, color or grayscale) I get the following message:
"Automatic focus on Butting Target failed for current picture. Make sure that butting & gain area is not covered & is clean.
Default focus will be used."
Does it every time I scan. Any ideas?
Hi!. You need to create tables using the Oxyjen Installion Utlities. Make sure that your Calibration side is positioned properly and the four foucus types are calibrated. Once the tables are created, save them to the appropriate tables folder.

You could try cleaning the glass and the scanner assembly for starters, especially if You had this printer a relatively long time or use it quite a lot.
Try the cleaning, then explore the driver ifthere is a problem - maybe reinstalling.
If all this fails you may be having a failing scanner bulb.
Head for the Canoscan Toolbox and click on "Settings". Under "select folder where temporary files are saved", click on "browser". Choose where you want the scanned item to be sent and then click 'OK". This works for me.
Have had the same problem, seems to come and go a bit... Quickest & easiest fix is to go to CanoScan toolboox > Settings then press the 'defauls' button at bottom... this sets everything back to factory settings and should fix your problem. Cheers.
Well I hate to give out bad news but if that line is in the exact same location on every scan it means that the element (the scanning light) has failed. Sorry that I could not earn a FixYa for you. If you need to replace the scanner I have had excellent luck with Epson scanners. Here is a link to a few on Amazon.com for refrence. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw?url=search-alias%3Daps &field-keywords=epson+scanner&x=0&y=0 Just copy the link and paste it into your web browser. there are also some very good all in one options. I have had this one for a year and it works well: http://www.amazon.com/C7280-Photosmart-All-Printer-CC567A /dp/B000UY6M2G/ref=pd_bbs_sr_4?ie=UTF8&s=office-products &qid=1210270089&sr=8-4
Upgrade to Acobat 9.0 Pro. It seems to work in that can scan pages for a document, HOWEVER, adding/appending to already scaned pages for a document seems to crash 9.0. For example, say I scan in pages 1 - 4. I cannot then scan pages 5 -6 as part of the same document--crashes Acrobat.
I think this finally proves the problem is Acrobat 8.0 and NOT the i40 drivers.
It may be possible that the error msg that you are receiving may be referring to another error. 1st thing I would try is checking the resolution, in some cases if the resolution is too high it may result with numerous issue's if your random access memory (RAM) is not sufficient enough to accommodate the resolution that you attempting to scan with. Try reducing the resolution, also try a different file type, either jpeg or tiff etc..,if all failes check to see if you have the latest driver(s) update for your scanner.
