SOURCE: Computer says Scanner not connected

try plugging the USB connection at the back of you computer. If still didn't work out, delete the old driver install the new one, be sure cables are connected and intact. If still didn't work out bring your scanner to the service center near you

SOURCE: CanoScan Scanner can not complete a scan

Double-check all connections and try another port if possible. There may also be damage to cables or pins. Do you have another cable to try? Do other devices work in the same port?

Printer is in use or an error has occured check status scanner driver will be closed closed


In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer ONLY WHEN PROMPTED, to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use a test print to CALIBRATE the scanner. if this wont help there is fault in the motherboard.

Stop your printer running while you are scanning photos.
It defines error because your printer and scanner running simultaneously.
Eject your printer while scanning.

I had the same problem and fixed it by unplugging the cable that connects the power to the printer while it was running. I then plugged the cable to the printer in and it worked. I previously reinstalled the driver, but it didn't fixed the problem.
