Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 25 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

The buttons on the Scanner itself will no longer work.

I used to be able to press the copy button on the scanner and it would send the image directly to the printer, but now it is no longer working. I scanner works fine when scanner to the computer and the printer works fine when printing from the computer.

You should be able to reconfigure the button settings by clicking on the "Settings" button in the CanoScan Toolbox application. Although the default setting is Scan, Copy and eMail, each of the buttons can be configured to do whatever operation you choose.

When the COPY button is clicked, a small pop up indicates that " Scan Gear has stopped working ". All other buttons, Email Scan etc. do work. Can you help please. FRANK.


Being that this is a scanner. Have you considered just using a work around and scanning the image and then printing it if need be? Have you tried reinstalling the software? Most likely you would end up replacing it as repair is not a economically viable option given the price of scanners.
Thank you,
Lee

I have installed scanner and disc but cannot find how to use it.I found the test box and that works but now how do I scan?thanks


Canon and other Scanners have both hardware and software buttons to scan documents and photographs.
Scanning with a computer is done with a destination in mind. So the buttons and the software are associated with destinations.
Typical destinations are File, email, Application, and print.
In a simple scan process for copy or print, the item is placed face down on the scanner, then the print button is pressed on the front of the scanner.
The software for the scanner pops up on the screen and the scanner moves the imaging light across the scanner under the glass, reading the item on the scanner. The software sends the image to the default printer and it prints a copy.

You will need to setup your preferences in the software so that a photograph is scanned properly and a newspaper article is scanned to come out clear black and white.
Documents are best saved as PDF files and photographs as TIFF files.
The software will have an expert mode where you can change all the settings and a beginner mode where you let the software decide.
Canon has a great document for your scanner. If it is not on the disk, here is the link. It is called CanoScan 4200F Scanning Guide. I think it will help you to use the scanner for any task.

I have never used a scanner please explain


If you are just installing the scanner, follow the setup instructions that came with it, and make sure the software gets installed. If it is already installed, then there should be a program in the computer that can start the scanner and get the image of whatever is on the scanner. Look where the scanner programs are at(usually this is a folder on the start menu). Also, there may be a scan button on the scanner itself. Pushing this button will start a scan and send the image to the computer.(the scanner program should start)

Disconnect the power supply from the back of the scanner base.
Disconnect the USB Interface cable and the ADF Accessory cable from the back of the scanner.

There is no application registered for this event is the message I get when pressing the buttons on the scanner (email/copy/scan buttons)


In the software setup, there will be a place where you program each of the Application Buttons to access a program you have installed on your computer.

Examples are: Photoshop, Email, OCR, Corel Photopaint, etc. any program that could use a feature called, "Aquire" which is simply getting a graphic from the scanner.

Be shure to install the Applications disc that came with the scanner, (not just the driver). And run the configuration, or settings tool, to set up what programs will run when you press the Quick access buttons on the scanner.

Otherwise, you can access the scanner features from a menu item called "Aquire" in Photoshop, Corel photopaint, or in Microsoft Office it's in the menu, string Insert - Image - from scanner or camera.

There are some complications with the WIA driver, and reccomends using the ScanGear CS software instead. I'm guessing WIA is (Windows Interface Access, or Windows Instant Access) whatever, it is, it is the buttons you're talking about.
I downloaded a driver from Server 1, Here, to get an Idea about your hardware. IF that link dosn't bring you to a site that says,
"Downloading Driver Canon CanoScan LiDE25"

then start here a few steps back, and find your model number in the list.

If you have the driver disc for this device, just use that,
if you have already done that,
find your scanner software on the Start Menu, and look for a configuration tool.


Hope this helps.

Vista driver for 1200S scanner


Install on Vista and Windows 7 using driver files from a XP installation. Copy the following driver files from XP: umax.inf, layout.inf, sti.inf, scsiscan.sys, sti.dll, umaxscan.dll, umaxud32.dll, umax.pnf (this may be more files than you need, but it works). Edit the umax.inf file to remove all by the 1200s/SCSI related sections (or copy it from below). Perform a manual installation of the 1200s and select the umax.inf installation file that you copied and edited. This worked perfectly. My Umax 1200s is recognized and works great in Windows 7.

When I scan back screen comes up blue and words and numbers are


http://fixunix.com/hewlett-packard/101142-scanjet-5400c-dead.html

following this link i've found resetting instructions for this scanner:


1.. Disconnect the USB cable and the power cable from the
scanner. Make sure the power cable is still connected to the
power source.
2.. Press the Scan and Email buttons at the same time, while
plugging the power cable back into the scanner. The scanner will
enter a Demo Mode.
3.. Press the Cancel button on the scanner to start the test.
4.. To end the test, disconnect and reconnect the power cable
without holding the buttons down.


I've had exactly the same problem with my scanjet 5400c (blue distorted images) but after resetting the scanner (see instuctions posted above) the problem was fixed
