4200F scanner functioning intermitantly

When ever I wish to use my scanner I have to unplug the USB cable and plug it back in just to get the computer to recognize it. I have tried other cables and other ports with the same problem. Is there some sort of patch for this?

It does not work in my new computer with Win 7


I have many years of repairing Canon scanners and here is my suggestion to you.

First disconnect the cable that goes from your scanner to your computer. Next google Canon CanoScan 4200f Drivers just as I have written it to you. A page will come up look for Canon's official website and download the drivers from them. The drivers are free from Canon. Once the download is complete and you have installed the drivers on your computer. Power your scanner back on and connect the cable from your scanner to your computer. a window should pop up saying a new device or drivers are being installed. Once this completes I would reboot (restart) your computer and you should be ready to scan now.

I hope this helps you out.

I have a 4200F scanner. I am scanning a scrap book page, which use to take a couple of minutes now is ten minutes or more before a picture appears on the screen. A tech earlier today said to plug the USB...


I had a similar problem - I fixed it by connecting direct to a USB 2.0 port rather than going through an old hub, which is maybe what the tech meant. I take it you haven't accidentally set the res too high?

My scanner will not turn on, I have checked the connecting cables and they are all in. what could be the problem?


What operating system are you running? These devices are "plug & play" so as long as your USB ports are working, it should turn on. Try a different device in the same port and see if it operates ok.

First, try unplugging and re-seating the USB cable in your computer. I am assuming your scanner is not making any noise when you first turn on the computer. If that is not the case, respond back with more information. This is the most common solution to this problem with these scanners though.

If you do not have the CD, then you need to download the software from one of the following locations:

Official Canon Drivers and Software

Canon USA:DRIVER & DOWNLOADS

After downloading is complete, unplug the scanner USB from computer and run the software that you downloaded.
The software installer will tell you when to connect USB.

Same problem.Scanner does not connect to my PC with Windows XP


Did you plug the scanner's USB cable into the computer, BEFORE you installed the drivers?

This can lead to a driver conflict.
When a hardware device is connected to a computer, Windows automatically sets out to match up drivers for it. If no driver is found that ->directly matches the device, Windows matches up one of it's generic drivers. Kind of a "One size fits all", type of thing.

Then THE drivers are installed. Now Windows has a conflict of drivers.
Windows: "Do I use these, or THESE?"

Suggest you unplug the USB cable from the scanner to computer, (If plugged in) Turn the scanner off, and unplug it from power.

Then go to All Programs, (Start>Hover your mouse on All Programs), and look at the list to the right for the Agfa Snapscan software.
See if an "Uninstall" option is listed. If so click on it. (If it asks if you wish to save preferences - NO!)

If not, go to Add/Remove Programs, (Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs), and find the Afga software in the list. Click on Remove.

DO NOT restart your computer, (Even if it asks)
Shut your computer down normally. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)
Unplug your computer from power.

Press the Power ON button in, and Hold it in for a count of at least Five seconds. (Count, 1001,..1002,..1003,..1004,..1005)
Let go of the Power On button.
Do This ->Two more times.

What you are doing is clearing any CMOS Error Codes, (And resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings)

Plug your computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, then turn it on.
After Windows has fully loaded, install the drivers from the CD disk you burned them to. If you didn't save the drivers to a CD disk, download the drivers again. Install them with the Installation Wizard.

After you're done, restart your computer.
After Windows has fully loaded again, plug the scanner back into power. If it sounds like it's resetting itself, wait until it's done. Now plug the USB cable into the computer from the scanner, turn the scanner on.

I am trying to reinstall HP Scanjet 5400c but it keeps telling me it can't initialize, no scanner recognized...WindowsXP.. it worked before, why not now?


I had similar problem with my UMAX scanner on numerous occasions. I now have this pg earmarked for quick reference! may help I don't know for sure but it is an easy test and if it works your good to go!
It is important that you connect the scanner's power and USB cables in the following order:
1. Plug the power adapter cord into the scanner and into an outlet. The scanner's power will then be on.
2. Connect the USB cable to the USB port on the
back or front of the computer.
NOTE: If you unplug the scanner's power ,you must also disconnect the USB cable from the computer. To resume use of the scanner, remove the power card, the the USB cable.

Sounds like a lot but the order is essential!
If it works, High lite Do unplug USB/unplug cable back of scanner/and plug cable back of scanner then USB!
Good Luck Hope this helps!

Canoscan 4200f Problem with Vista 32 bit


I got mine working after experiencing the same problem.

I had mine hooked up to a USB hub, after I hooked it directly to the USB ports in the back of my computer, everything just worked fine.

Weird that it worked on the USB hub on XP and not vista though.
