Did you make sure to install the printer first before you plug it in? This can cause an issue the printer cannot be plugged in when you install it. If you still have problems you may have to return it or have it repaired under warranty. Please take a moment to rate my solution fixya.

    Being that you have had the same problem on all the operating systems and different systems it sounds like a problem with the printer itself. You can not get the printer to work right at all correct? Are you installing from a cd or from a downloaded installation?

You can download "Drivers & Software" for Win7 (32bit & 64Bit) @

Select your OS ie Win7(32bit) or Win7(64bit).

Disconnect the printer from the PC, and delete the printer you have installed & remove all the software previously installed on the PC. Reinstall the download "Drivers & Software".

Hi, I have brand new Canon MP140 3 in 1. I am getting the error message &cannot communicate with scanner. Cable may be disconnected or scanner may be turned off. Check status. scanner driver will be...

1. If you are connected correctly (via a USB cable), first be certain that the cable is snug on both sides (PC and Canon MP140).

2. If still a problem, remove the Canon MP140 icon from Printers and Faxes.

3. Then, disconnect the USB cable.

4. Restart your PC and log into Windows.

5. Connect the USB cable.

6. The PC should recognize the Canon MP130 and ask for a driver.

7. Install the driver.

If #6 does not happen, your USB cable could be faulty or may be a problem with USB port or your Canon. Move USB cable to a different USB port on the PC. Replace the USB cable. Try to install the Canon on a different PC to test.

Hope this helps.
