Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer

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

I connect to my laptop to scan pictures, and each time, each single time the scanner will start scanning an inch but it stops and I get the message Cannot communicate with scanner. Cable may be disconnected or scanner may be turned off. Check status. Scanner driver will be closed. Code: 2,155,0" The closest I get is it will scan one or two, but same problem persists. Today I totally cannot scan one thing! What is wrong? I've tried everything...

  • Beams Mar 27, 2008

    i have a Canon pixma mp180, and each time I tried to scan it gives me the error code "Cannot communicate with scanner. Code 2,155,0" But the same printer with the same new cable worked faultlessly at 2 other locations.



    I have installed and re-installed, I have changed the usb cable, changed the usb port. Yet I keep getting the same error code.

    i don't have its drivers

  • bizzyman45 Apr 06, 2009

    I uninstalled....re-installed the program step by step. Problem still persists. I removed other printer drivers...re-booted and still has proble. Went to the Cannon Users site and down loaded suggested drivers and still have same proble.
    I believe Cannon needs to fix this problem by sending out a
    driver that takes care of the problem for all!

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

    Thanks!
    Using WIA support in Photoshop, I received no error, but couldn't scan. Using Canon's own software I saw error codes 1,155,13. Using the original printer cable without extension cable helped me. My printer is MP270.

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.

Hi,
Got the same message code 2,155,0 and fixed the problem by removing a USB Stick that was in one of the USB ports on the computer!! Must have been conflict caused.
So try removing as many devices connected to your computer by USB cable and try again.

I had the same problem with my MP250. I got the same message but the error code was 2,155,13. Replacing the USB cable didn't make it work. I could scan only at the lowest resolution, at any higher resolution it would raise that error message. The preview function was working anyway.
I've solved it by plugging out some USB devices, such as memory sticks.

Posted on May 08, 2009

Just got a cable from my other HP printer & it works fine now... seems that the scanner uses the full bandwidth of the usb cable.. long/bad-badquality cables will not work... cheerz'

Posted on Sep 22, 2008

The solution to the 2,155,0 error:

Buy a new Cable (Double shielded, length <=2m)

Just did the test... IT WORKS

Posted on Nov 06, 2007

Thats right............pay a bit more and get a better cable...it will probably cost round 150/ inr

Download the quick start guide from support.symbol.com and reset to default by scanning the code from the PDF manual. This could either be a programmed ASCII prefix, or an error in the codes you are scanning. Have you seen the same problem with more than one scanner?

Scanner will not connect to PC


Make sure that the scanner file utility is running on the computer you are scanning to. Go to Start - Programs - Scanner User Software - Scanner File Utility. It will open in the system tray by the clock on the PC. Try to scan again. If still have the same error, go to the webpage of the scanner (just enter the IP address of the scanner NIC in Internet Explorer. Go to the bottom left side of the page and click Scan to PC Destination List. Click on the number to the left of the name you are scanning to. check the IP address listed on the webpage and make sure it matches the IP address of the Computer you are scanning to. One of these should fix it.
