Re: My CanoScan D1230U has stopped working

I had this same problem with my N1240U...just stopped working for no reason. After trying several 'fixes' I discovered that all I needed to do was download the current update for the scanning software, Scan Gear Toolbox!!
Now it works fine...but for all the pressure I have put on the glass, trying to get magazines down flat, that now causes the scanner to drag on the inside of the glass!
But, that is another problem....that needs a solution!

After downloading drivers from Canon's site for a CanoScan D123ou, how do I install them?

I have many years experience repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion for you.

If you now do have the latest driver from Canon's website, here is how I install them. First unplug the cable that goes from the scanner to your computer. Now install the drivers. Then with the scanner powered on hook the cable back up to your computer again. A window will pop up on your screen saying a new device or driver is being installed. Once this process completes I then reboot (restart) the computer and you should be able to scan again.

I hope this helps you out.

Scanner not detected

I have the same problem with my Canoscan LiDE 25 scanner used sparingly since purchase in 2008. Last used 3 days back after a gap of a few months when it scanned a few pages and then stopped working. On connecting the scanner to my laptop on Vista Home Premium 32-bit it shows "USB device not recognized". No change in status after uninstalling drivers, cleaning my system, and reinstalling drivers from the Canon CD, or Canon US site, or Canon UK site. Even tried VueScan but this also does not recognize the scanner. I find it hard to believe that a Canon product stops working in barely 5-6 years even though it is very sparingly used and stored in the original packing when not in use.

Have lost the cable that connects to computer. Besides the power, there are 2 sockets on the back. Tried a cable from the square socket to USB but computer doesn't recognise that a device is connected....

The round socket sounds like the power port, and the square one should be the USB as you thought.

Please respond with the scanner make/model and one of us can verify the connections required.
