I have a Cannon ScanFront 220P. The page feeder will only work if I manually push one page in at a time. Is ther a way to fix this?

You should clean your pick-up and separation roller using cloth soaked in water. Be sure not to use alcohol because it reacts with the rubber roller.

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

I have seen this problem before, what happens is when your computer goes to sleep it drops the connection to the scanner, its the computer that is causing the problem not the scanner. I suggest you turn off sleep mode. Also if your doing a lot of scanning with this model I would suggest a fresh reboot daily with this scanner. If you have any other questions let me know.

I hope this helps you out

I've configured the network interface to have a static IP on our network, as well as the proper gateway, DNS servers, etc. II'm pretty sure that shared folder address book entry within the scanner is...

Is the network folder on the same subnet as your scanner? We discovered with ours that the folder needs to be on the same subnet to be able to scan to it. Canon tech support verified this when we called them. Also, I would verify that your domain accoutn can reach the destination outside the scanner to eliminate that possible issue. Our solution to placing something on another subnet was to set up a folder on the subnet to scan to and then use a batch file to copy the files out to the other location at a given regular interval.

The network setting for the scanner driver may be incorrect. Check the IP address of your scanner and then set the IP address on the scanner driver.

1- The steps of setting the IP address may differ depending on your operating system.

For XP operating system:
Click Start > Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Scanners and Cameras.

For windows 7 operating system:
Start > Control Panel > ... View scanners and cameras.
2- Right click on the scanner icon for your machine and select Properties.

3- Click Network Setting tab and select Specify your machine by address.
4- Enter the IP Address you confirmed from the snanner menu or ask your network administrator and click OK.

Hope this helps.

How do I add a new user to scanfront220p

Best advice is to access the web menu on the device and log in as the administrator.
Firstly, the network scanner needs an IP Address in order to access the web menu. You will need to log in as an administrator to change the IP address settings on the device.
I found that the default "administrator mode" password was just blank - no password whatsoever.
Sit down at the scanner and click the administrative mode or administrator button at the login screen. You should be prompted for the password.
If you have a router that uses DHCP then be certain that the device is configured for use with DHCP. Otherwise, configure a static IP address on it that is within the IP range of the network it is connected to.
Once you have either discovered the IP address of the scanner or assigned one manually you will want to go to another computer on the same network.
To access the web menu you will need to go to the IP address of the device - I.E. if the scanner has an ip address of type in:
into a web browser (as though you were typing in - ONLY type in the numbers and periods). The web browser needs to be on a computer that is on the same network or connected directly to the scanner via an ethernet cable and have an IP address set statically on its network card. I would google "Setting a static IP Address" and the name of your OS.
From there you will see a "To Administrator Mode" link in the upper right hand corner of the Web Menu screen. Click on that and authenticate with the same administrator password that was used earlier.
You should be able manage user accounts from within the administrative web menu!
