Yes! No WIA, no scanning! It means Windows Image Aquisition is not turned on... Not only will the scanner not work but also other Imaging devices like cameras. The best way to find out will be to try and scan from Microsoft Paint. Go to Start, all programs, accessories then look for paint. When paint opens, click file then from scanners or cameras. Try to scan, if it scans then WIA is ok.
It means is the scanner software that was not installed correctly so uninstall reinstall just the scanner software! If Paint does not scan, then its your computer's Operating system (winxp) at fault. Make sure WIA is started, or better try to restart that service (in control panel, administrative tools, services, look for Windows Image Aquisition, restart the service).

SOURCE: Canon Pixma MX850 won't scan - says 'set the pc to start scan'

Do you have more than one PC connected to the scanner? I have both a PC and a Mac connected to it, and I think my scanner is trying to connect to the Mac, which requires image capture software to be installed, rather than the PC. Don't know how to tell it to go to the PC, though...

"Internal error occurred. Scanner driver will be closed. code 7,202,15"
Received the above error while inserting scanner image using MS Word with Canon printer/scanner Pixma 439.

The solution is via the following MS Word software choices:
From Word tool bar choose: INSERT/PICTURE/FROM SCANNER/then one of two choices, either: WIA-WIA Canon MX430 Series, or choose CUSTOM INSERT (Preferable).

Canon ImageClass MF6540- works fine for printing, but scanning complains connection problem on Dell Dimension E521. However my other Dell Dim 9200 computer runs fine for both printing and scanning. What...


Need some clarification about the error.
We need to know the exact error.
Generally all the scannars use TWAIN technology which bridges the scanner with WIA(windows imaging aquisition).
We need to know if WIA which is a part of the operating system is working. For diagonasting we can try using teh scanners and camera wizard from control panel or we can use mspaint even.
If WIA is working in that case the problem may be with the registry values of the scanner.
WE can try making a new user account with admin rights and then we can try installing the scanner. We can even try using Revo uninstaller for uninstallation of the scanner because it will remove all the entries from registry, then we can try scanning.
BEST OF LUCK.

Canon mf4350d WONT scan out of the box


The software that comes with Canon MF4350 does not detect the absence of WIA service running. If printer is working and the correct driver is installed, the first thing to check is: 1. Check that the scanner does NOT appear under Control Panel -> Scanners and Cameras. 2. Navigate to Administrative tools -> Services (the same menu is available under My Computer -> Manage -> Services. 3. Check that service "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)" is enabled and started. 4. If WIA service is not enabled, enable it. The scanner should appear under scanners menu (see 1.) and Canon MF4350 should work fine.

How do i scan film on my scanner


You should be able to download the manual.

http://consumer.usa.canon.com/ir/controller?act=DownloadDetailAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=10242

To scan film, you'll need to first remove the white cover on the underside of the scanner lid. That is where the backlight is. Also, you must be using the ScanGear driver and NOT the WIA driver. The WIA driver does not support film scanning. Locate your film guides. These are the templates that will hold the film and are placed on the scanner glass to be scanned. Lastly, there should be a Select Source option in the scanner driver that allows you to select Film as the source.

Hope this helps.
