Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 80 Film Flatbed Scanner

Open Question

Scanning arm stuck on flatbed scanner & makes a grinding noise.

Canon CanoScan Lide 80 flatbed scanner.
When trying to scan the scanner makes a grinding noise and the scanning arm won't move. An error message appears (code:201) saying to consult the manual which i've checked and can't find any reference to the error code. I've checked the scanners lock on the back of the machine and that appears to be broken as it is stuck in the unlocked position and can't be moved. As far as I can tell the problem appears to be mechanical, can any one help?.

This seems to work with fink/xsane or the canoscan drivers from their site, but neither as well as you might like.

SOURCE: Canon LIDE 500F scanner does not scan - returns error message about releasing lock switch, detaching interface cable and reconnecting

Check the lock switch and make sure it is unlocked. I think the lock switch is on the bottom...or it may be under the lid near one of the hinges. Flip it back and forth and leave it in the unlocked position.

If this doesn't work, then it will most likely need service. Contact Canon Tech Support.

SOURCE: TWAIN ERROR AND CANOSCAN LIDE 20 SCANNER PROBLEMS

I had the same problem more than 1 year ago and then found the solution (at least in my case that is) somewhere on the internet. Since I have the same problem with a new computer I searched the internet once more, but did not find the solution. However, last time I was so clever to write down the solution on the disk of my old laptop. The laptop is gone, but not the disk, so I could access it by putting it in an USB enclosure and was able to find the solution once again. Here it is:

c:WINDOWS wain_32CNQLxx (xx is the number of your scanner) should be included in the PATH environmental variable.

Now I know where to look for I found the link where I found it first:

SOURCE: canoscan 9950F won't scan, says scanner locked, but it isn't

I was surprised by the same problem this morning. First time I've had a problem with in years. Checked the lock... it was already unlocked. I solved the problem by unhooking the USB cable from the hub, restarting my Mac (seems to be the key), replugging the cable and restarting the scanner. Worked like a charm. Hope it works for you!

When I try to scan with my canonscan lide 70 I get a message "specify the program where the scanned image is transferred"


You just need to point the program to where the scanning program was installed. If you just let it auto-load it should be here: (assuming you loaded the free toolbox software)
C:\Program Files\Canon\CanoScan Toolbox Ver5.0\CSTBox.exe
or just look at where the toolbox is installed by searching for the CSTBox.exe file.

You'll have to do that in the software that handles the image after scanning. Do you start scanning from your computer, or direcly on the scanner? While executing the scan from the computer, you can select the save-path there. While executing directly on the scanner you need to to go to the settings of your scanner, i think.
