Re: Scanner not working
If the power is fine, checkthe UBS cable connecting the scanner to the PC, and also that the PC is detecting the scanner.
A driver is a program that allows your hardware to be made available on your system and hence allows other softwares to use it. If there is no driver, the system will not be connected to thehardware. Hence you must have a driver installed before you can use thehardware.
Here is a list of links where you will find the driver:

If it is your first time using your printer, then you need to install the driver for it to work.
If you have used your printer without any problem before then, there are two possible reasons why your printer/scanner is having that issue:
1. Connection error 2. Driver problem
First thing's first. Restart your computer and your printer. there are times that computers and printers just need a restart for it to work. Yes, it's strange but it's how things work with machines. They need rebooting to work smoothly.
If rebooting your computer and printer won't fix the problem. Here are the things that you can do.
1. Connection error: . a. Turn off your printer and turn it back on. Try scanning, if no go.. proceed to step b.
b. Unplug your printer from your computer and unplug it's power cord and press and hold the printer's power button to 5-8 seconds to completely drain the power. Plug it back in to the wall outlet leaving the connection between your computer and the printer still unplugged. wait until your printer completely turns on. Plug it to your computer and do the scanning process.
If all steps above don't work, then you need to check the driver.
Uinstall the driver of your computer by going to the control panel. After uinstalling it, then reinstall it by using the dvd that came with your printer. Follow the on-screen instructions and try scanning. It should work.
The ABS & Trac came on because that system has issues
There may be stored data, if not a code present
The mechanic has to component test to find the problem
These guys spend too much time with a scan tool & I
think some of them are waiting for it to tell them something
Doesn't work that way. If everything goes as it should, the
scanner shows what the computer sees,that's all,& that can
be a lot,but you have to move on & use different skills that
not everyone has learned yet apparently
Try another shop
That really isn't a diagnostic test etc,just looking at data
stream,if they see nothing out of range they quit
That doesn't help you any,the problem is still there,intermitent
maybe, but there.
Scanners are a real legacy issue within windows - they have been there forever and yet the software controlling them hasn't been improved on - TWAIN it is the name of the Toolkit which communicates with your scanner and the proprietary software sits on top of that. TWAIN stands for "Toolkit Without An Interesting Name" - I think says it all. It hasn't been improved on much through the various releases of Windows. But to help you more we would need a lot more information.
- Platform Windows 7 .... Mac ...
- Scanner name and manufacturer
- Type of connection to the scanner ( USB ¦ WIRELESS )
- Whether you have had the scanner working in the past on this machine.
- Does the scanner work on another machine - Do you have another machine on which to try the scanner.
- Do you have the original disks for the scanner. And the original Windows Disk - so that you can load up the TWAIN software.
- How did you install the software for the scanner
- Have you come across this TWAIN driver ( perhaps you haven't installed that - because the Manufacturer's software doesn't include the TWAIN driver ( you have to load that from your Windows disk )
If you haven't loaded the TWAIN software - then perhaps - you should de-install the Manufacturers software and then install the TWAIN driver from the disk ( although - it may already be resident in the bowls of the Windows environment on the machine ) and then finally re-install the Manufacturer's software ...
So more questions than answers - but I hope that helps ....
Try re-installing the drivers , your crash could of corrupted the installed drivers causing your issues. I have installed Media Center on my Father in Law's cpu and found that it is very unstable at times and also many of his installed programs that worked fine under Win XP SP2 either crash frequently or wont work at all. Driver support is an issue for Media Center IMO. I would recommend if you cannot get the scanner to work after you re-install them , think about changing your OS. Good Luck.
Usually this type of error message pops up when the scanner lamp isn?t warming up properly. This is what you should do:
1. Check if the lamp is on.
2. Unplug the scanner?s power supply and plug it back in. Try connecting it diretly to the wall.
3. If that doesn?t work:
a. Unplug the unit?s power supply.
b. Press ?cancel? and left arrow while reconnecting the unit.
c. Release the buttons when the printer starts up.
4. Try scanning again.
5. If it doesn?t work, have it serviced.
