Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

Canon CanoScan 3000F won't scan film negatives. It gives me this error: Cannot Scan for these reasons: - The original may not be set correctly. - The Film Adaptor Unit Protective Sheet may be put in place. - The lamp may not be warmed up. Scanner driver will be closed. Code: 2,181,0 TWAIN data transfer error. I've never scanned film negatives with this scanner before, but it scans regular photos fine.

The 4g wil not be the solution for you.  It is just a basic graphics printer.  The filmmaker 4 will be the option you should look at.  It will produce negs and positives all the way up to 2400 dpi.

You can probably contact Cannon and see what they get for the power supply or search the WEB for an aftermarket ps. You will need the specs off of the old one if you go after market.

My canoscan 8400F suddenly stopped working last week. I had been scanning slides thru Photoshop when on my next scan attempt, I got this message: Cannon scan for these reasons: -The original may not...

You have to remove the white protective sheet from the the lid. Once you remove it you will be able to scan film. Also make sure the lock button is not in the lock position.

Open the Canoscan Toolbox.
Click the Save option.
Put a check in the box that states "Display the Scanner Driver".
Click Scan.
Click the Advanced Mode tab.
Make sure Select Source is set to "Platen".
Click the Preview button at the top left

Another thing is this can be caused by a faulty FAU cable. One or more of the eight wires within this cable has fractured

The scanner will not process slides but performs all other copyin

The problem is resolved.
I continued searching the internet until I downloaded the Manual for ConoScan 3000F. The procedure for film scanning had a diagram of the sleeve referred to in the error report.
After removing this sleeve from the underside of the lid everything went well.
ïf all else fails read the instructions" . The problem is to find them when paper is no longer used.

Why is my canoscan 44oof scanning in negative mode i.e white paper with black print is scanning black with white print

I solved this problem by the following:

Don't scan from the Canoscan toolbar. Use an imaging program (I used Picasa), import from the Canoscan, and Scangear opens up. In the settings for Scangear, you can choose positive or negative film (use positive for slides). You can keep using Scangear, or after using it once, you'll see it has corrected the problem with the toolbar

Couple of problems for canoscan 3000f :

It appears the scanner is not scanning in the vertical direction.(I am assuming it is able to scan the full width). Try unistall and reinstall of the friver. This can work. There are sensors in the scanner that indicate the 'end of scan area'. Check if any of them is blocked by shreds of paper or dust.

Cannot scan film and slides

Check the cable that connects to the lid of the scanner. If it is disconnected, you won't get the Film options.
