Thsi usually happens with canon printers and scanners jsut re-install the driver...I wonder when they will fix it..This happens each time you disconnect the cable and then put it back..

My pixma mp160 doesn't want to scan and through a error messages 2,250,0. what must I do? the led flashes E 42.


E42 is a scanner error.
Turn off your printer and unplug from electrical outlet.
Wait at least 20 minutes.
This will allow the scanner lamp and components to cool.
Plug printer back in and turn on printer.

Ok but its saying to check your usb cable and you need to check if both the pc and this scanner is plugged in with this usb cable and that the scanner has it's power plugged in too.

It could also mean that you did not properly install the drive or the drive is old and you need to replace it or update it.


Please let me know what happens after ok?

Says scanner is turned off, but the scanner starts to scan and stops with the error code 21550


Unplug the all-in-one for about fifteen minutes or so, and plug it back in. This will clear the NVRAM and it might clear this problem.

All in One Scanner/Printer problems


Go to this link and type "cannot communicate with scanner" in the search box. Click Search. Then select the "ERROR: Cannot communicate with scanner" link. You will see several things to try to correct your problem. Usually, this error shows up if there is another USB device connected which prevents the computer from "seeing" the scanner, even though it can print without problem. So do try to disconnect any other USB device (except mouse or keyboard) and reboot the system.
