SOURCE: Scan function won't work with Mac OS10.5.5 & Airport

I have a new macbook pro OS 10.5 and installed a new HP L7590 all in one printer. Same problem. Called Apple and they confirmed that they do not have a driver for the Airport Express to allow scanning wireless. Therefore, SOL. If want to scan, then have to unplug from APE and plug into laptop. My solution is to use a USB hub and mount close to desktop so I can easily remove my HP and connect to laptop to scan often (or buy a cheap flatbed). GARY

SOURCE: PIXMA Cannon MP 130: Scanner Problem

You said the printer works, but does it work from windows sending it to the printer.
If it does, then there could be a few problems. You should start by looking at you printer under start-printer, you should see the printer and should show your model. I would make sure that the software
you installed for the printer was for the OS you are running Xp,vista and try to reinstall it.
Because of the one error you listed, driver failed. Most times you can just reinstall it again,and when it goes to the folder just have it overwrite the folder. If running vista, turn off UAC when installing drivers.

Then unplug the printer and plug it back in after you restarted the system from the install, and windows will see the printer.

Now maybe someone had the same problem that can give you better advise so just wait. But you can at least shut down your pc, unplug your printer, restart the system,plug in the printer and try it again,and if the problem remains, hopefully someone else posted or try your software install. Hope you get it working.

SOURCE: I have problem with my scanner. when I want

Ok but its saying to check your usb cable and you need to check if both the pc and this scanner is plugged in with this usb cable and that the scanner has it's power plugged in too.

It could also mean that you did not properly install the drive or the drive is old and you need to replace it or update it.


Please let me know what happens after ok?

On Windows Vista, the following error message may appear while scanning:-
"Cannot communicate with scanner.
Code: 2,155,0 (or Code: 53,3,0)"

In such a case, close the error message and confirm that the cable is connected and the printer is turned on. And then perform a scan over again after a while.

    All in One Scanner/Printer problems


    Go to this link and type "cannot communicate with scanner" in the search box. Click Search. Then select the "ERROR: Cannot communicate with scanner" link. You will see several things to try to correct your problem. Usually, this error shows up if there is another USB device connected which prevents the computer from "seeing" the scanner, even though it can print without problem. So do try to disconnect any other USB device (except mouse or keyboard) and reboot the system.
