Can't scan image to word or photo gallery


First thing to do is try to check if your windows XP is a 32 or a 64-bit. You can do this by right clicking the mouse on My Computer icon and then left click on properties. Now try to load the right and updated driver. If it still won't work. Go to Control Panel>administrative tools>services>scroll down and look for WIA ( Windows Image Acquisition). when you double click on it you should see it it is running, stopped, make sure that it is started. If still won't work try using other application like paint.

Communication problem with a MP210 Canon Pixma


Yes! No WIA, no scanning! It means Windows Image Aquisition is not turned on... Not only will the scanner not work but also other Imaging devices like cameras. The best way to find out will be to try and scan from Microsoft Paint. Go to Start, all programs, accessories then look for paint. When paint opens, click file then from scanners or cameras. Try to scan, if it scans then WIA is ok.
It means is the scanner software that was not installed correctly so uninstall reinstall just the scanner software! If Paint does not scan, then its your computer's Operating system (winxp) at fault. Make sure WIA is started, or better try to restart that service (in control panel, administrative tools, services, look for Windows Image Aquisition, restart the service).

Hp web cam


Normally, If you are running Windows XP, the Built-In Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) maybe enable without your knowledge. This is the default setting of Windows to protect your PC from hacking. However, of course, this default setting may block you from running some applications you might need to use like Viewing WebCam in Yahoo! Messenger. Anyway, there is always a way to solve the problem.

Below are the steps to enable you to veiw WebCam by instructing you to ensure that the correct ports are opened.

1. Click Start, Settings, and select Control Panel.
2. Double click on the Network Connections icon.
3. Right click the connection that you use to connect to the Internet, and then click on Properties.
4. On the Advanced tab, uncheck the box Protect my computer… if you would like to disable the firewall. If you like to only open the webcam ports, check the box and continue with the remaining steps.
5. Click the Settings button.
6. Click the Add button.
7. Under Description… fill in Yahoo! Webcam. Under Name or IP… fill in 127.0.0.1. Under both External Port and Internal Port fill in 5100. Check the button TCP.
8. Click OK to close all opened dialog boxes.
Work done! I guess now You can view webcam in Yahoo! Messenger

That will resolve the issue.

However, if the issue persists, you can try below thing. By disabeling and enabling the webcam feature.



Disabling Webcam application:
Disabling Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service will disable the webcam.

1. Click Start, and select Run.
2. In the Open box, type SERVICES.MSC
3. Press Enter on the keyboard. Services box will pop up.
4. In the Services window, scroll down to Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service. 5. Right-click "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)" and select Properties.
6. In the General tab, under Service status, click the "Stop" button.
7. Click Apply and OK.
8. Restart the notebook. This will disable the webcam on the notebook

Enabling the web cam application :

1. Click Start, and select Run.
2. In the Open box, type SERVICES.MSC
3. Press Enter on the keyboard. Services box will pop up.
4. In the Services window, scroll down to Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service. 5. Right-click "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)" and select Properties.
6. In the General tab, under Service status, click the "Start" button.
7. Click Apply and OK.
8. Restart the notebook. This will enable the webcam on the notebook.

That will resolve the issue.
