Re: copy function

Well you gotta provide the details in scanners configuration where you want the scanner to copy your Documents to .i.e. whether you want it to scan and store it as a image or open it with some Application or you want it to print just assign any one task with proper configuration it will definately work.

Canon 8400F scanner refuses to scan 12 negatives at a time. Preview shows them all, but the "select all frames" is grayed out, and refuses to function. I can scan manually one negative at a time among...

Check to see if the "Thumbnail Display" is on or off (first icon on the toolbar in the ScanGear CS window). If it is on, a colored border will appear around one of the images in the preview display, but you will not be able to select all frames. If you click on the Thumbnail Display icon to turn it off, only a dotted line will appear around one of the images, but you will be able to click on the "select all frames" Apply button.

HP Solutions Center can not communicate with HP 3500c Scanner

Had exact same problem. Went to HP site and they said to check "add or remove programs" functions (in control panel) and if there are multiple copies of HP software to download their fix. I checked, had multiple copies, downloaded patch and all worked well again.

Canon Canoscan LIDE 30

For some reason, there are some HP model printer drivers that cause problems with the Copy function of the CanoScan Toolbox. Because of this conflict, when Toolbox Copy function connects with the printer driver, which is what it is doing when you select it from the dropdown. There had been some updates to the Toolbox software that corrected the issue. However, then HP release some new drivers for some models that reinstated the issue.

So the first thing to try would be to download and install the most current version of Toolbox for your scanner model (ver.

If the problem isn't corrected with that, then you won't be able to use the COPY function unless HP updates there printer driver to correct the issue. If you really must have the COPY option, then you might try using a older Toolbox just for that feature. If that is a consideration, then get the Toolbox ver 2.2.3 from the CanoScan N650U download page.

The COPY function from this version should work fine with the HP printers.

Good Luck.

Printing - using the 'copy' mode of the scanner

This suggests the the 'copy' element of the software is not VISTA compatible. In VISTA help in my computer - check out the 'compatibility' options and select an operating system that the copy function did work under

Cannon scanner D1250U2F and Hp photosmart printer 8250

This is a compatibility issue between the Copy function of Toolbox and the specific HP printer driver. The only work-around would be to scan your image and save it, then print it from another application. One other possibility would be to get Toolbox version 2.2.x from the N650U scanner download page. This version will be limited in functionality, but COPY button should function as expected.
