Idle printer status

If your computer is USB connected make sure that the cable is connected and that the printer is powered up. If you are connected to the printer over your network through wifi or ethernet, make sure that each device (computer and printer) is connected.
If all of these are in order and the printer still shows offline, try re-installing the software that came with the printer. Sometimes the software needs to be re-installed due to corrupted files.

Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device



I have seen your message stating that "Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device" error is received when trying to connect USB-Parallel type to your Laptop.


Well,  Printer  Panasonic UF4100, recommends to use only " Printer/Scanner Interface as Bi-directional Parallel (IEEE1284) " means you need to use Parallel cable to connect Printer to the Computer/Notebook.  You may receive some communication error messages if you are using a  "PORT REPLICATOR CABLE"( USB TO PARALLEL connector).  The error message that you have received is related to the communication error. Futher, if you use same USB- Parallel cable for long time the Printer Hardware functionality might go bad, since Printer memory gets confused and will not read or detect the Cable , since it is not a cable to use  mentioned by Panasonic Manufacturer.


Let me tell you, general functionality of Printer like Printing would work even if you use USB-Parallel cable. But it is not a case with Scanner and Fax functionality.


Hence, I recommend you to use only Parallel cable to connect your Printer to the Laptops.


I hope that this will resolve the issue for you.


You can email me at if you need further assistance.

Connect the device to a different usb port. Download the newest software/drivers from the Belkin web site. Remove the old software and install the newest downloaded version. Please supply the error.
