Scanner not recognized but print, copy and fax functions work. Reinstalling printer driver and toolbox 4.9 do not solve the problem. Canon tech support unable to find the problem. Scanner worked fine...

When updating, Windows will automatically create a restore point so that if you have such problems you can back out of the update install. Go to Control Panel > System > and in the left upper pane click on System Protection. In the resulting pop-up click the button that says "System Restore" this will launch another pop-up... click Next on the lower right and you will be presented with a list of Restore Points with dates and descriptions...choose the one that coincides with when your problems began. If you don't see it listed, click the check box lower left to show more restore points. Click Next and follow any other instruction. Afterwards if you wish you can go ahead and redo the updates, but do them individually and try your scanner between them to verify it still works. Good luck, hope this helps!

When I tried to download the printer driver for the epson CX4200 to my Windows Vista 32 bit HP computer I get the DAT is not exist error. The scanner driver installed fine just the printer driver has this...

hello, after phoning Epsomregarding this problem, they explained that part of the printer driver had become corrupted and was somehow buried in my computer programs, and that I should contact the computer manufacturer or Microsoft. I contacted HP and the gentleman walked me through a system restore and the old driver still works. I'm a bit of a sitting duck though cause I can't use system restore for after that date or my printer willl stop working.

Hp 3055 and sp3

There are 2 ways you can remove it. The easiest is to go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Make sure Restore my computer to an earlier time radio button is selected and click Next. Bold calendar dates indicate available restore points. Choose the date that you installed SP3 and time if it has more than one, click Next and it will restore it to the way things were prior to the update.
Alternatively, Start>Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs and scroll down to Windows XP Service Pack 3 and highlight it then click Remove on the right. I prefer System Restore but that's me.
If you feel this helped you, please help me out and rate the solution accordingly. Thanks for using!

Epson CX6000 scanner doesn't work after installing latest Vista service pack

Suggest you go to System Restore and roll back to a prior date. That will "undo" your update, but will not change any of your files (Word, Excel, Email, PDF, etc.)

Click the "Start" and then type System Restore in the search box.

Scanner portion

The easiest thing to do is a system restore; it will restore all of your computers settings to a point before the software was changed. Go to start, programs, accessories, system tools, system restore.

Folow the onscreen prompts and select a day prior to the day the scanner stopped working. It will reboot, then restore. Then your computer should be just like it was.
