I finally got a solution to my problem, which is the same as this one. When trying to scan via USB, you have to make sure the unit is set to USB. On the top panel just above the LCD display, is 3 buttons, Copy, Fax, Scan. Hit the SCAN button, till the display says USB SCANNING. Then try to scan again. Good luck!!

I had exactly the same problem (error Code:2,140,2) in Canon PIXMA MP250, and it was solved when I replaced both ink cartridges which were almost empty (almost without ink). I know an scanner problem is not supposed to be in relation with ink or printer problems, but that's the way I've fixed it. Good luck!

Is it a refill or compatible cartridge? If so then the printer will not read full ink levels only with genuine Canon ink.
The printer will work with refills/compatibles but you need to press the reset button (this should be a small round button which has a red triangle in a circle on it) hold it down for a fair few seconds and that will get the printer working. You just ignore the message of low ink.
If they are genuine inks then it may be the connectors need a gentle wipe with cartridge flush as there may be something on them that's not allowing them to make the correct connection with the printer.
If they still won't work you need to take them back to where you bought them and ask for replacements as the ones you were given are faulty.
