How to connect to the computer?

Devices: Canon CanoScan FB330P/FB630P Color Flatbed Scanners

Check pages 22-23 of this copy of your Canon Canoscan 630P Product Guide.

You'll need an "IBM-type" parallel printer cable - with a DB25 on each end, and your computer will also need to have an "IBM-type" DB-25 parallel printer port.

What the Canon Product Guide fails to mention is that this "IBM-type" printer cable is a kluged Centronics parallel printer cable, but became so popular (on older computers - your laptop may not have this port), that it got an IEEE standard: IEEE 1284 (with DB25 connectors on both ends).

You'll need a DB25-to-DB25 M/F cable, meaning DB25 connectors on both ends, with a Male on one end, and a Female on the other end.
The Male DB25 will plug into the Female DB25 connector on your computer/laptop, with the Female DB25 going to the FB630P Color scanner..
Here are some pictures/pricing:

The nice thing about the design of the Canon FB630P Color Scanner is that the scanner also has a Female DB25 Printer port for an existing parallel printer, so when you connect an FB330P/FB630P to your system, your existing parallel printer is daisy-chained through this port - so you needn't give up you printer (to scan), nor must you install another parallel printer port onto your PCI-bus tower PC to keep your printer.

Canon Canoscan FB330P/FB630P Color Scanner Product Guide (82 pages):

Most modern printers are USB-attached to laptop systems, so you may need an adapter, an example of which is seen here:

Unable to get scan of my doccument

lift the lid on your scanner lay the photo face down then select scan document/photo it will ask what format you want to scan it then it will ask where you want to save it browse select the file/folder where you want to save it (my pictures) most common

the drivers for the scanner might have been corrupted
you might have to uninstall the printer/scanner restart your computer then restart your computer then reinstall the printer/scanner and its drivers

Computer can't "see" scanner even though plugged into USB port

please check:
if other usb-devices work with your pc, so usb ports of your machine are ok.
try connecting the printer to another machine, using same procedure as u did with the old one

did you get any installation cd with it?
any newer drivers for your win-system available?( inet, manufacturers homepage)

if your system and the printer passed the hardware check, install newer drivers and try again.

wish u luck

Make sure You have  driver for it. Drivers are available on numerous sites for it. Any USB connection on the system unit should work with the installation.

Cable connectivity with my laptop through a "parallel to usb cable". My laptop has no parallel port but only usb ports.

make sure you follow this step :
1. install driver USB to Paralel port (LPT1) before the cable connected to PC
2. After the driver installed, install the cable - and it supposed to be detected
3. the last think u have to do is install the scanner/printer driver

if it is not work, i guess the problem is on the USB to paralel adapter, or the driver not installed correctly

Computer no longer recognizes my scanner

If you are using a multi port USB adapter that allows you to plug many devices into one USB port it may interfere with the scanner. Try uninstalling your Epson driver then download the newest one from the Epson website.

Install the newest driver first then plug your scanner into a single USB port on the computer instead of the multi port.

Need help to hook up IBM color flatbed scanner

Attach one end of a parallel port cable to the parallel (printer) port on your computer and the other end of the cable to the computer port on the rear of the scanner. If you have a printer connected to your computer, you must disconnect the printer cable from the computer before connecting the scanner cable.
If you have trouble attaching a cable connector to a port, be sure that you are connecting the correct end of the cable to the correct port.
IF. . . you want to use a printer WITH your scanner, attach one end of the printer cable to the printer port on the rear of the scanner and attach the other end of the cable to the printer.
Plug in power cord and then power up PC.
Power on scanner. Install drivers. Restart PC to activate EZ Station buttons.

Connecting my HP ScanJet 5200C scanner to my HP Pavilion Home pc


I don't think you can (successfully) run this scanner off the paralell port. I'm drawing on memory here but I think this scanner has serial and usb ports. If you are running Windows XP, use the USB hookup. If you are running Windows 95, 98, Milliniaum then you might want to use the serial port. At any rate the scanner software should be installed before you plugin the scanner.

If I'm completely "full of it" and you really want to use a Paralell connection then you might want to use a paralell to USB adaptor (Belkin, perhaps others make one of these).

Needing to hook up my scanner

You are going to need a 25 way cable a "Printer" type cable, A Male to Male, BUT with ALL 25 pins wired thru pin To Pin. This plugs straight into the "Printer" port. These machines often have a "Pass Through" port on them so ya can also connect to a Printer, however if ya printer is USB then it's NOT used. I found drivers below. driver/211491/ umax-scanner-astra-1220p- vistascan-3.55-parallelport-free-download.html
