Some machines have a scanner head lock to prevent damage when moving the machine, see if your machine is one of them and unlock it.
You may need to calibrate the printer and the scanner.
Good Luck.

How do I install the scanner. I installed the printer, it works but the scanner and fax did not.


You need to install the drivers for the scanner and fax. They are separate installs. They should be on the CD that came with the printer. You can get them from Cannon's web site too.

I cannot receive fax on my dell940 printer. help


The A940 is not a standalone fax machine, and needs to work with your computer to send and receive faxes. Your computer needs a dialup modem installed and a connection to a phone line, and you need to have fax software installed. The printer actually only works as a scanner to input a document to be faxed, and as a printer to display a received fax. The installation CD supplied with the printer has fax software on it you can install, and other software is available online. This document from Dell (the fax section of the user's guide) may be helpful.

Lexmark series x2350 all in one scanner does not work.


Is the scanner driver installed ?. You can check this by unplugging the USB cable from the back of the printer and connecting it again. If you get any Plug and Play prompts on the computer, install the driver by pointing it to the correct scan driver location.

I just got a new Dell Windows Vista Laptop. I currently have a Brother 7420 printer, fax, scanner, copier combo. I can't get the scanner to work. Please HELP... Thanks, Pam


I presume the print and fax parts work. Can you make a copy? Have you checked the driver software? The CD that came with the equipment usually installs the scanner software as well. try reinstalling the software and see if it works.

Scanner quit working


the scanner works with the windows built in driver. Uninstall the hole mfc suite and reinstall after restart. This is the fix for the software. You can check the hardware simply by copying a page. If you can copy there is no hardware prob. Post here again if it does not work and let me know your windows version, too, please.
