SOURCE: scanner error

if you put the installation cd in the drive and then if it autostarts close it down, then go to device manager and the properties of the scanner and update driver let pc search automatically and it should reinstall it and then all should be fine i hope , had the same problem on my all in one device

this should make sure scanner work.. but if it still doesnt work then go back to the device manager and check if there are any hradwares with a yellow question mark beside them.if there is then right click on them and click update driver.
if that does not solve the problem try reinstalling the CD or go to the canon MP00 web page (google it) to dowmload the printer/scanner drivers. and repeat everything until it works or until you give up =). hope it all works out bye!

SOURCE: Scanning error - cannot scan error code 2,155,0 ???

I had the same problem with a new Canon MP970. Printed ok, but couldn't communicate with the scanner - error 2,155,0.
Canon phone support didn't help, and suggested it was a firewall problem. I uninstalled, and re-installed, turning off firewall, virus software, and everything. No luck. Tried several USB cables, no luck.
Then I uninstalled again - as well as a couple of old drivers and software associated with two now deceased printer/scanners.
This time I plugged the (same) USB in and turned on the device, using Windows' own hardware install wizard.
Now it works fine (at least for now... touch wood).
So - the problem might be either conflict with other printer/scanner devices installed, or with Canon's installation software.

SOURCE: Scanning error - cannot scan error code 2,155,0 ???

Hi
I had the same problem, at first I thought that it was the original drivers (the ones I got with the printer) so I donwloaded the drivers from the canon website, this did not resolve the problem. What I also tried and it worked for me was connecting the printer to the computer with it's original usb cable. I bought a couple of weekes ago a usb extension cable (about 5 m long). With this extension cable I can print but I can't scan any document, it just gives me the same error. Hope this works also for you.
Bye
PS: My printer is a Canon Pixma MP190

SOURCE: Scanner won't communicate with computer

Try this,

Go to Control Panel >> Device Manager, look for the scanner in 'Device Manager' under 'Imaging Devices'
Right click on it and select 'Uninstall' and allow it to be uninstalled.
Remove the USB lead from the scanner.
Re-boot the Computer.
Once windows appears and is ready toi use, re-connect the scanner USB lead.
Windows should re-install the drivers and tell you the scanner is ready to use................hopefully!

First, please check all USB cable connections, unplug and re-plug the cable both at computer side-port and printer side-port.. Then,check if USB cable is good. If you are sure that's all alright so the logic board of the printer may be faulty. Overall this is about connection problem. Good luck.

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?

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.

I cannot get my PIXMA MP140 to scan anything. I've tried re-installing the software and downloading the latest drivers. Nothing helps. It prints just fine. I get the following message each time I...


1. install alien Symaptic Package Managerunder System, Administration.
2. Go to HTTP://www.canon.com, Support and get the 4 required Linux Drivers. cuijfilter common and cuijfilter MP140 series, scangearmp common and scangearmp 140 series drivers. Download them to your desktop. Get the .rpm version only for this to work.
3. These files are in the .rpm format and they need to be converted to .deb.
4. use the terminal window. cd ~/Desktop. That will put you in the desktop.
5. Convert the files to .deb by using sudo alien --scripts scangearmp-common-1.10-1.i386.rpm and sudo alien --scripts cuijfilter-common-2.80-0.i386.rpm. These are only examples and you need to be exact or it will not work.
6. Double Click the .deb files and they will be installed. Install the common files first then the 140 series next.
7. Reboot the computer and the scanner will show up in the GIMP Image Editor, File, Qcquire, Scangearmp.
8. You then need to go to System, Administration, Printing and configure the MP 145. It is called the MP 140 series and Make and model is a Canon PIXMA MP150 CUPS ..........

Canon mp610 scanning problem


The readme says that some USB hubs have an issue.

I was having problems and was connected via a hub. I removed the hub and connected the printer directly to the back of the PC and voila scanning is all good.
