    Scanner shows up under hardware profiler, but applications refuse to recognize it.
    Installs of the driver do nothing, and the CanoScan Toolbox is not recognized as a valid app.
    i can do nothing with this scanner

Try plugging the USB connection at the back of you computer. If still didn't work out, delete the old driver install the new one, be sure cables are connected and intact. If still didn't work out bring your scanner to the service center near you

Hello.

Either the driver is corrupted or the scanner component is faulty.

Reinstall the driver for your device. If still a problem and the other functions work, but not the scanner, the scanner part is faulty.

Hope this helps.

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.
