Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
My scanner quit making copies, won't scan. I have deleted the files and reinstalled the programs from the disc that came with the scanner. I get the same message. Cannot open file. When trying the repair mode on installation, I got a message saying a file was locked. Didn't write down which one. HELP !!!!
SOURCE: Tvichw32 Driver Open Error
Hello Aunt Pat
(01) Is this scanner "new" to the computer it is installed on now (where you're experiencing these issues)?
(02) Did this problem show up w/out apparent cause or relation to any recent changes on your system (e.g. New hardware or software installed, updated, upgraded or removed; system crash; computer repair; etc.)?
(03) Did the problem appear soon after a change to your system? (see above examples)
There are many references to this issue on the Internet. I've listed a few here. You can find many more, if you like, by performing search engine queries.
THIS links to a Roxio forum thread regarding this issue. (Even if you aren't using Roxio software, the information here could be relevant to your issue.)
THIS link will explain a bit about what TVICHW32 driver is.
I'd reinstall the ASPI drivers. A driver file may have become corrupted. (Assuming you'd been using this scanner successfully on this system until recently.)
You can find links for Adaptec's ASPI drivers on their web site HERE. They also have an ASPI version checker you can run to find out what verison is installed on your computer.

I ended up buying VueScan and it solves the problem. The scanner works great now. I heartily recommend it so you never have to work with Canon drivers again.

it may be that you have to close the program - i had a similar problem at first but found it stores them all until the program is closed, then a window pops up with little thumbnails of all my scans (meaning you can continue to scan new images without apparently having saved them to the harddrive). This new window allows the user to untic whichever scans are not desired... there is a svae button at the bottom, and the svaed scans will be found in the Pictures folder in a sub-a folder with that days date as the name.

I was surprised by the same problem this morning. First time I've had a problem with in years. Checked the lock... it was already unlocked. I solved the problem by unhooking the USB cable from the hub, restarting my Mac (seems to be the key), replugging the cable and restarting the scanner. Worked like a charm. Hope it works for you!

Tips for a great answer:
Mar 02, 2017 | Canon CanoScan LiDE 90 Flatbed Scanner
Guide to installing Canon CanoScan LiDE 35, 50 and 60 on Mac OS X 10.8. Mountain Lion:
FIRST PART: DELETING OLD LiDE DRIVERS AND SOFTWARE
HD:/Library/Image Capture/Twain Data Sources
delete the CanoScan CanoScan XXXX.ds file
(Make note of any other files that may be in this folder. If other files are present, move them to the desktop for now. Then place them back after successfully using the scanner.)
delete the 'CanoScan XXXX' folder
delete the folders containing the name CanoScan, or starting with CNQL.
delete the CanoScan Toolbox Application
delete any items named "CanoScan Toolbox"
SECOND PART: MAKING YOUR SCANNER WORK
CanoScan LiDE 50 and LiDE 35 work both with the 35 driver:
CanoScan LiDE 60 driver:
VueScan 9.2 (or later) x32 for Mac OS X
Alternative to VueScan: CanoScan Toolbox. I prefer VueScan.
Try your luck with Version 4 or Version 5.
CanoScan Toolbox 4: cstbosx4934ej4.dmg
CanoScan Toolbox 5: cstbosx5014ej4.dmg
(Alternatively try and install CanoScan Toolbox 4 or 5)
