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?

My scanner is plugged in but when I try to scan a document it says my scanner is not responding


Hello,

If it is your first time using your printer, then you need to install the driver for it to work.

If you have used your printer without any problem before then, there are two possible reasons why your printer/scanner is having that issue:

1. Connection error
2. Driver problem

First thing's first. Restart your computer and your printer. there are times that computers and printers just need a restart for it to work. Yes, it's strange but it's how things work with machines. They need rebooting to work smoothly.


If rebooting your computer and printer won't fix the problem. Here are the things that you can do.

1. Connection error:
.
a. Turn off your printer and turn it back on. Try scanning, if no go.. proceed to step b.

b. Unplug your printer from your computer and unplug it's power cord and press and hold the printer's power button to 5-8 seconds to completely drain the power. Plug it back in to the wall outlet leaving the connection between your computer and the printer still unplugged. wait until your printer completely turns on. Plug it to your computer and do the scanning process.

If all steps above don't work, then you need to check the driver.

Uinstall the driver of your computer by going to the control panel. After uinstalling it, then reinstall it by using the dvd that came with your printer. Follow the on-screen instructions and try scanning. It should work.

If it doesn't, please reply to this thread.

Thank you for using fixya.com

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.

My iphone 4 will not turn on even after charging


You can try a hard restart, which is holding down the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons for around 15 seconds until the Apple logo shows up. If that doesn't work you might have to restore your iPhone. If you want to restore your iPhone, you have to connect it to your computer. Hold down the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds. Then after 10 seconds release ONLY the Sleep/Wake button. Your computer should say that your iPhone is now in recovery mode and you can now restore it via iTunes.

Won't let me sign out


You possible have some windows problem which need to restart. Sometimes windows are so invalid that only press on reset button can help. If you don't have reset button you need to press power up button for around 5-6 second. If you have problem with viruses, it can be source of problem too. You will need to go to 'Safe mode with networking' (press F8 after start of computer every 1 second). Download ESET (Nod32) hand antivirus scanner, and try to scan your computer in that safe mode.
Good luck!
