Question about Canon CanoScan 4200F Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Dead in the Water

I don't see an on/off button, the scanner is connected, but won't scan. In the past, I have had to restart to "wake" it up. Now even that won't work. How do you activate the stupid thing?

    I have the same problem. whenever I want to use the #@$%^&% scanner I have to disconnect the USB cable - sometimes many times! Is there a permanent solution to this?

Umax astra 2200 upgrade for lion


Funny I was trying to get another scanner running in Lion and discovered that doing this worked with Lion and my Umax 2200. Go here and download and install these 5 packages. Now I was only able to get the scanner to work properly with the 600dpi setting. Other settings lower scanned the image in wavy. Don't forget to restart afterward and go to About this Mac and make sure that the USB connection sees the scanner. Once you do that. Sane Scan will show up in Printer/Scanner preference. Running Lion on a 3.2 quad core 1.1 MacProTower

Scan snap won't work


This is a known problem with Fujitsu ScanSnaps. Some units experience the "blue button of death" meaning they no longer respond to waking the driver up when you press the blue button. Customer service is aware of the problem and if you are under warranty you should be able to get a new unit.

Error message


Hi toolpusher

Try going to CanoScan Toolbox > Settings and reset the 'defaults' button at bottom... this will restore factory settings and hopefully fix your problem... The other error message you can expect to get is "unable to scan - insufficent memory, check your **** space' (or something similar)... same fix works for both! ...Have had both messages on mine, sounds like a semi-regular conflict on some sort, but seems to be easily fixed. Good luck :-)
