Why does my canon PIXMA 452 say pc not connected when I hit the start scan button


Hi, several things i would be asking
Do you get an error code?
Is the error on the PC or Printer?
Can you print?
How is the Printer connected USB or Wireless

the first is the error code will determine where the fault lies.. if in the 5000 range.. its a hardware problem and would need to be repaired by a service center or repairer.
if you get the printer error.. check the cable or wireless connections
if the PC error it could relate to software you are using to scan too, even if you acquire the correct twain driver (select source).. some are not compatible.. try the scan function in your Canon Utilities IJ Scan Utility. Scan it there first and save it as a PDF or image file.
if you can print its not a connection problem if you cannot print try another USB/printer cable Or make sure your device is setup for wireless run the installation software again and complete the wireless procedures in setup. I hope this helps.. or post me the error code and i can give you a definite answer.. Cheers!

I can print ok but cannot scan to image zone.get a message to connect the scanner .


At a guess, you're trying to do this wirelessly? If so: give up. Wireless scanning imho is nigh-on impossible to get working, especially with inexpensive HP printers. Best to just plug the thing in with a USB cable, then use something like HP ScanPro to do the scanning.
If you scan a lot, you may need to think about changing your printer - but research it carefully. Hope this helps, even if it ain't what you were hoping to hear....

C4388 scan through wifi?


This is happening because the system doesn't have Network Twain Port drivers installed.

Try installing the twain port drivers and assign the IP address of the printer to scan

CANT GET IT TO SCAN


Hello. If you are using a wireless printer, the common issue is this. Even though the printer is wireless, the scanner requires the wire that connects the printer to the USB port on the computer. If you don't have the USB wire, they are commonly available at any walmart, staples, etc.

HP 7590 office jet pro scanner does not communicate


Hello,

The scanner function is not available when you are connected wireless, you must be connected via USB to your PC for the scanner to function correctly.

HP C 6180 will not not print or scan


As an IT admin at a small school district I can attest to the scan in print issues via network with this model. Our eventual solution after HP provided little help was to USB it to a workstation and then share it with limited rights to users. It was most stable otherwise with only bare drivers loaded and not using any associated HP software

My 3210 will not scan


I now have 2 of these and both print ok but can not scan with either, never tried to till now.
I have re- downloaded the driver from HP.com via Internet Explorer (usually use Mozilla Firefox) and i get 2 diff. error messages : network busy (impossible since it is connected via USB) and the 1 at my office connects wirelessly but error message is something to do with software.
Thanks!

"Scanning in progress" reported even when I'm not scanning anything


You need to install the print driver and Sharpdesk before you connect the USB cable.
