For MS Windows Operating Systems: After first going to Control Panel (By clicking on your Start Button/ icon) Select Hardware/ Printers/ Faxes and make certain that your Scanner is set a the default device.

If you have not already turned off and restarted your computer and scanner:)

You may also try rebooting or uninstalling, then re-installing your scanner to ensure your computer identifies the correct driver and connects to he scanner. Especially since the scanner was working previously.

I have a Xerox scanner that disappears. So far the only way to fix it is to uninstall and reinstall the drivers.

DR-9080c Isn't being detected via USB


Uninstall the device driver, restart the Comp and reinstall the software. If the scanner is not detected, try inserting any working device on the same USB port. if it detected, thee could be problem in the Scanner, if the new device is not detected, then it may be port problem.

No scanner detected. Error Code 0x00070800. Using Windows Xp!


Your scanner may not be compatible with windows xp. You may need to see if the manufacturer's website may have driver files for your scanner.

Will not pick up speed also engine and vsc light come on


If the check engine light has come on, the vehicle computer has detected a problem, and it's most likely the problem that is causing the loss of power.
You need to connect an engine diagnostic scanner to the vehicle and see what the computer has detected. The scanner is usually quite easy to use and self-explanatory.
In a situation like this, it's usually something simple, like a sparkplug or sensor.
Often an auto parts retailer can be the best resource in a situation like this. Some will allow you to rent borrow or purchase code scanners, and some will even help you perform the diagnostic scan if they have the time.
That is your first step; don't try to replace parts or perform any other repairs until you know what's actually causing the problem.

Scanner not detected


I have the same problem with my Canoscan LiDE 25 scanner used sparingly since purchase in 2008. Last used 3 days back after a gap of a few months when it scanned a few pages and then stopped working. On connecting the scanner to my laptop on Vista Home Premium 32-bit it shows "USB device not recognized". No change in status after uninstalling drivers, cleaning my system, and reinstalling drivers from the Canon CD, or Canon US site, or Canon UK site. Even tried VueScan but this also does not recognize the scanner. I find it hard to believe that a Canon product stops working in barely 5-6 years even though it is very sparingly used and stored in the original packing when not in use.

Hp officejet 6500 all in one, scanner suddenly quit working, small office network only two pcs, printer function works, but scanner says no connection? Removed HP driver, Reinstalled whole thing from Hp...


The scanner has a separate driver. Go to Device Manager and click "Imaging Devices." Is the scanner there? If yes, try to update driver. If it's not there, right click and select "scan for hardware changes." Plug and play should see the scanner and install it. If not, go to control panel, hardware, add device. Keep the disk in the machine, as you know it has the drivers on it. If there is a newer driver online, you can update later.

No scanner detected on N640P ex scanner


I was recently faced with this same problem, with non detection of the scanner N640P ex flatbed. It has a card for the parallel port connection and was installed by a computer repairer to save me time. He said it worked, but when I got it home, it failed, even with the new driver added.
Here is what I did.
Check the ports in which are used for the scanner, mine was found to be LPT2, I changed that to LPT1.
(Be prepared to reverse these 2 if necessary).
I did a reboot and turned on the scanner and it showed it was there but refused to bring up the Toolbox to scan anything.
Next step, go the Microsoft and pick up this "Restore parVdm" this belongs in Windows System 32 and aids in the recognition of not only your scanner but other vital peripherals.
Its a microsoft fail when the parVdm does not recognise something.
I installed that as it comes down in .rar file, and rebooted, and all is working exceptionally well.
Will this work with any other OS? I have no idea. This worked for me on XP SP3 but parVdm also exists in Windows 7, 8 and Vista.

MiraScan quits when I try to load it in an image-editing software, like Photoshop. Why?


Try the program compatibility mode I think these scanner were made for 95/98 DOS machines and did not translate to EXP because of firmware differences.
