Re: Canon MP600 scanner error

I am using Windows 2000. My STILL IMAGE SERVICE was disabled. I set it to automatic then restarted my computer. Worked like a charm.

I followed the steps below

> 1. Right-click My Computer and select Manage. This brings up the
> 'Computer Management' window seen below.
> 2. Under 'Services and Applications' click Services. This will
> display a list of services in the right pane of the 'Computer
> Management' window. A portion of this window is seen below.
> 3. Scroll through the list to locate and then double-click STILL IMAGE SERVICE
> 4. Be sure that 'Startup type:' is not set to Disabled. You can
> choose either Automatic or Manual.
> 5. Once you have enabled the 'Startup type:', under 'Service status:'
> click the Start button to start the service.

Re: Canon MP600 scanner error

I fixed the same MP600 problem (can't find the scanner or corrupt cable) by clicking Default settings on menu of MP600 device (on its display) and unplugging all USB devices except MP600 and restarting the computer.

Now it scans without delay. Could have saved myself a lot of waiting a lot earlier!

Scanner will not scan

Have you tried scanning using MP Navigator rather than the controls on the printer?

I had the same problem.Adding twain_32.dll to the Windowsfolder solved the problem.For people who don't want to search for it: Look Here.
