    my scanner has worked perfectly for a couple of years but a week ago it appears as if my computer cannot find the scanner , I have uninstalled the printer and reinstalled several times but to no avail.

    I removed the power from the printer and removed the usb cable and restarted mycomputer, replaced the usb cable and the power , I could see that the computer had automatically uninstalled the driver and then found and installed the driver on restart but again to no avail .

    I can see in the device manager that my epson stylus is listed but when I go to scaners and camaras from the controll panel it is not shown.

    If I bring up the insall wizard it cannot find the scanner.

sometimes there are compatibility issues with windows vista. Uninstall all other exisitng drivers of printers. Install the downloaded driver again and the software too. If it doesnt work then i think you must get it back with xp.

I have a BJC80 printern with a scanner head. My pc is an xp opertins system. It is connect to parallel port but when i try to scan, it sends me back an error message saying there is no communication.


One of two issues may be involved. 1) Make sure you have a bi-directional IEEE-1284 parallel printer cable, 6 feet or less long. 2) Make sure that the parallel port is set to ECP mode (the BIOS is accessed by hitting F1 or F2 during boot on many computer, check your manual.) Try a new cable (just in case the cable has just enough damage to prevent the scanner from getting the full bi-directional communication).

I hope this helps.

(the lack of bi-directional communication only disables the scanner, the printer will still work)

Try uninstalling the drivers for the scanner and the printer. Restart the computer without either the scanner or printer pluged in. After restart install the drivers and only plug up the USB cable for each device when asked by the software.

You will need to download and install the vista driver for this to work on your vista computer. XP & Vista drivers are not the same and that is the reason it will work on the XP computer but not on the Vista computer. Driver should be available from the hardware manufacturers website. Hope this helps.

Can I install the Mustek 600 usb scanner to a windows xp?


this is not compact able with Xp but you can try this it may work or not ................

Everybody who ownes a Mustek 600 II N scanner and want to install it under XP will notice it won't work. Mustek's website says the scanner is not supported under Windows XP.
I've tried this and it works fine here:
- Download the NT4 driver from http://www.mustek-europe.com/eng_/html/treiber/scanner_P_n.htm (select the exact drivers by looking up the first two letters of the serialnumber found under the barcode on the backside of the scanner)
- Before installing the driver click right on the .exe file and go to properties, compatibility and select 'Windows NT4' from the pulldown menu.
- Now install the drivers and it should work. I'm running Windows XP PRO here but i'm sure it will work under XP Home too.
If you own another, unsupported Mustek scanner you can try the same. Maybe it will work.


good luck................

All in One Scanner/Printer problems


Go to this link and type "cannot communicate with scanner" in the search box. Click Search. Then select the "ERROR: Cannot communicate with scanner" link. You will see several things to try to correct your problem. Usually, this error shows up if there is another USB device connected which prevents the computer from "seeing" the scanner, even though it can print without problem. So do try to disconnect any other USB device (except mouse or keyboard) and reboot the system.

Scanner


Go to this link. Select Windows XP in the Select OS box. You will see Canon's printer driver for the BJC-2100, and under 'Software' you will see ISScan_v350.exe which is actually the driver for the IS-22, compatible with Windows XP.

Install and download both files on your computer. I know that Windows XP has a driver already for the BJC-2100, but it may not work properly with the IS Scan driver.
