    I think I did. I just checked my device manager and it says the scanner is disabled.I try enabling it then install the driver (all while in device manager) but it then says it's disabled again.
    Right now I am going to try unplugging it, let it rest a few mins then try again. But tell me if there is somethign else to do. I see lots of posts about this problem all over the net.

Did you have a storm or lightning? Try unplugging the power cable from the left rear of the machine (not the wall). I have had to do this on several occassions after storms. Good Luck!

SmarThru Office can't see scanner (nor can word)


Windows is using Window's default scan driver, so it's working only within Windows scan wizard feature. You will need to install the Scan Driver separately to work with SmarThru and other software. The Scan Driver is available at Samsung website.

Canon mp 830 getting error 5000


Canon site if the link does not work just go to canon.com -> support-> select Multifinction --> Inkjet --> Pixma MP830

Then type in - error code 5000 - (Leave off the " - "
Select #3 - ERROR LCD: Error code (5xxx through 9xxx) appears on the display -

1. Press ON/OFF switch to reset the multifunction device
2. Press Stop/Reset and ON/OFF to reset the printer
3. Removing paper jams MP800R / MP830 / MP530
4. The MP830 may require repair
5. Unlock the scanner lock switch (MP800R / MP830)

The links above detail each instruction. If they do not work here then got directly to the Canon Site.

Basically at one point there was a paper jam so clear it and then reset the machine.
Worked for me. Good luck to you :)

My Canon mp830 is under warranty, so I took it to an official repair place rather than try to sort out its problem myself. I understand these are sensitive to power fluctuations. Mine may of experienced this. If you wish, I will get a detailed explanation for you of what the repairman found wrong when my mp830 is returned to me.- Melody

Scanner


I couldn't get the MP830 scanner USB interface to work on initial installation. Canon was unable to help, other than to say that the USB 2.0 had to be native (i.e., had to be on the motherboard, and not an addon board). London Drugs computer dept (from whom I bought the printer) suggested that re-installation of the operating system (WinXP) might help. Bingo - it worked!

Dell 810 not printing


Dear chibihamster, It seems that there is some loose connection in your printer. If you have a little knowledge in hardware, please open your printer carefully, check all the connected cable specially the printer head connector. The best way is that disconnect the printer head cable and reconnect it again. Do not do anything in your scanner circuit area, otherwise it will create you more problems. If this doesn't solve your problem, please contact the manufacturer. GOOD LUCK!!
