SOURCE: how do i scan film on my scanner

You should be able to download the manual.

http://consumer.usa.canon.com/ir/controller?act=DownloadDetailAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=10242

To scan film, you'll need to first remove the white cover on the underside of the scanner lid. That is where the backlight is. Also, you must be using the ScanGear driver and NOT the WIA driver. The WIA driver does not support film scanning. Locate your film guides. These are the templates that will hold the film and are placed on the scanner glass to be scanned. Lastly, there should be a Select Source option in the scanner driver that allows you to select Film as the source.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Calibration cannot be performed Error

You stated that you tried to install it on a new computer correct? To install any hardware on a computer you need a driver which is compatable with the version of windows that you have. If you have an install disk , it may install but still be the wrong driver. Even if it is the correct driver. Drivrs are updated ongoingly because their are problems with communication for the device to the computer.
Download the latest drivers for your version of windows, aftwer deleting the software/driver that is installed now.

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

My canoscan 5000f does not work with my os vista 32 bit, do you have a solution?


I have many years experience repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion for you.

My suggestion is this, I would google Canon Canoscan 500f drivers, just as I have written it to you. A page will pop up and download the latest drivers from Canon's official web site ( the drivers are dated). Before you install the drivers disconnect the cable from the scanner to the computer. Now install the drivers. Once they are installed reconnect the cable from the scanner to your computer with the scanner powered on. A window will pop up saying a new device or drivers are being installed.Once this is completed then reboot (restart) your computer and you should be able to scan again.

I hope this helps you out.

When I try to scan I get a message - connect to Twain source but I don't know what they are talking about?


The TWAIN device is the scanner itself. The program seems to be saying it can't see the scanner.

Is this scanner new to your computer?
Have you installed the driver for it?
Which program is giving you the error message?

Can't use the ''Film selection on epson V700


Make sure the transparency light cable that comes from the lid is plugged in to the back of the scanner. If the cable is unplugged for any reason, the transparency/film options will not be available.

Are there any other words along with the error?

Make sure the scanner is unlocked.
Does the scanner make any noise when you attempt to scan?

If possible, try the scanner on another computer.

Was the scanner working before?
What OS are you using?

Download the delete driver application and uninstall the drivers. Also, download the most current drivers and reinstall. You should also download and install the most current version of Toolbox.

Have you used this scanner on Leopard already? I didn't think this scanner was supported.

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=235&modelid=8053

Do a search on "Leopard". The CanoScan 5000F is not supported in this OS.
