Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 500F Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Canon CanoScan LiDE 500F won't work

The scanner is connected to my iMac computer through the USB port and when I click on the applications folder the PhotoStudio folder is there.  I click on the PhotoStudio film icon inside the PhotoStudio folder but under the file menu the CanoScan LiDe 500F does not appear in the Select Source window, only a wireless scanner we have in our home that's part of a multifunction machine. Why isn't PhotoStudio listed as a source?

Lide 60 not working in mountain lion


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


  • If this is the first attempt to install the scanner, skip this part


  • Trash the following files/folders from these folders:


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.)


HD:/Library/Preferences

delete the 'CanoScan XXXX' folder


HD:/Users/Shared

delete the folders containing the name CanoScan, or starting with CNQL.


HD:/Applications

delete the CanoScan Toolbox Application


HD:/Users/YOUR-MAC-USERNAME/Library/Preferences

delete any items named "CanoScan Toolbox"


  • Restart your computer, then empty the trash


SECOND PART: MAKING YOUR SCANNER WORK


  • Make sure your scanner is well connected


  • Download the right driver depending on your Model. Also download the Scanner Software. Copy the filenames and search them via Google. Make sure you download the Canon files from an official Canon domain.


CanoScan LiDE 50 and LiDE 35 work both with the 35 driver:

lide35osx7721en.dmg


CanoScan LiDE 60 driver:

lide60osx11131en.dmg


VueScan Software:

http://www.hamrick.com/#download

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


  • Open the downloaded driver file (lide35osx7721en.dmg or lide60osx11131en.dmg)


  • and Double-click the ScanGear file, install and restart when prompted


  • Open the downloaded VueScan file (vuex3292.dmg) and drag the VueScan application to the Mac Applications folder


  • Open the VueScan application. The scanner should be recognized automatically.


(Alternatively try and install CanoScan Toolbox 4 or 5)

Scans says it needs to be unlocked but already is.


To be clear, under the scanner, you have already peeled the seal stickers off, and slide the unlock slider from the lock icon to the unlock icon.

If your switch is firmly in the "unlocked" position and still get the error, then plug your USB cable into another port on your computer and restart. Make sure you are NOT using the USB ports on the FRONT of your computer and DO NOT use a USB hub. If the error continues, then there is a malfunction in the scanner and must be replaced.
