I had the printer working fine till sometime, and then either a driver upgrade or a OS upgrade over time caused the scanner to stop working. Tried reinstalling the drivers to no avail. However, sticking a usb drive on the printer's usb port, as opposed to using a usb cable by-passes any issues with the drivers or the OS, and just worked great.

""I can't get my scanner


If reinstalling the drivers doesn't work. Try manually adding the device.
1. Start>Control Panel
2. Under Hardware and Sound click, Add a device
3. From there you should see your Printer/scanner. Go thru the prompts and it should be able to find and install the drivers from manufacturer site

Computer can't "see" scanner even though plugged into USB port


please check:
if other usb-devices work with your pc, so usb ports of your machine are ok.
try connecting the printer to another machine, using same procedure as u did with the old one

did you get any installation cd with it?
any newer drivers for your win-system available?( inet, manufacturers homepage)

if your system and the printer passed the hardware check, install newer drivers and try again.

wish u luck

On my Vista desktop it worked directly, but I had the same error message on my Vista laptop when the scanner was connected through an USB hub. Perhaps the power is not sufficient?
Then i plugged the connector directly into the laptop usb port 2.0, and the driver was automatically installed and works fine!

The scanner(travelscan pro 600) gets a no power or not connected message!


Go to Device Manager and most likely the travelscan pro 600 is not popping up under imaging devices where it should be. Unplug the scanner and plug it into a different USB port. Try this on all the USB Ports on the machine if it reappears in device manager then the software will work. If you are using a USB extention cord or USB hub get rid of them till you try all the ports. If it doesn't i would suggest contacting the manufacture and seeing if the scanner is still under warranty.

Have you plugged in your printer into a different USB port on the computer? If so, return the USB cable to the original USB port it was in before. If not, try another USB port on the pc and have the driver disk handy because it might act like you have never had the printer plugged into the PC before.

Good luck

Cannot communicate with scanner message


Try an get a USB 2.0 printer cable. Some of the Canon scanners will not communicate quick enough without one.
