SOURCE: my canon lide 100 scanner will e mail scanned

The scan to e-mail uses your default mail product. As of June 2008, Outlook Express can not check a Hotmail account. If you have XP, Vista or Win7, you can download and install Windows Live Mail and use that instead. Since Hotmail is a Microsoft product, Live Mail should set up the account without a problem (both the incoming server and the out-going server); all you'll need to add is your full email address (name@hotmail.com) and password. Make your Hotmail account the default and Live Mail the default e-mail program and you should be good to go for sending e-mail via Hotmail.

If you want to continue with Outlook Express, there is no solution.

I hope this helps.

(Live Mail will ask if you want it to be the default program when you first launch it after installing (in my experience all mail programs do this). If you relaunch Outlook Express, it will ask the same question and you will need to reset the default program for mail. This can be done either as each program asks or through the Control Panel, Programs, Default Programs)

SOURCE: Canon Lide 80 Lock Switch error message.

I had the same problem with this scanner after years of use. It stopped being able to calibrate itself so I couldn't use it on computers where it had never been installed on before (since on freshly installed computers, the driver requires calibration to be carried out at least once).

What I did was open it up, the two strips of plastic to the left and right of the platen can be used to remove the glass surface:
1. release the oval catch at the front of each strip by prying them upwards.
2. slide the glass towards the front of the scanner a bit till a gap appears between the end of each strip and the back of the scanner.
3. pry a bit of the back of both strips upwards and keep them away from the glass so they won't stopped by the back of the scanner.
4. slide the glass all the way to the back, you should be able to remove the glass since the two plastic strips aren't blocked anymore.

The reason the scanner fails to calibrate is because it tries looking for the black/white strip hidden between the plastic case and glass panel at the front but fails. There are three possible reasons:

1. Dirty glass panel/damaged black/white strip
2. Covered/dirty CIS module
3. Loose drive belt

Mine was a combination of the first three. A little washing and thorough drying of the glass panel and black/white strip and careful wiping of the imaging element and led strips (the black bar is the imaging element and the white bar is the led strips) fixed the problem.

I didn't have a loose drive belt, so I didn't look into fixing that, but I see a spring loaded catch holding the drive belt tension; if you have a loose belt, it may be worth it looking into that.

A tip of advice: If somehow, after reassembling your scanner after tinkering with it it still refuses to calibrate, you can do a dirty workaround by doing the calibration with the scanner disassembled and placing the black/white strip manually above the CIS module at the front, making sure to hold it steady. Your images will look a bit muted, but at least it works! (I did this step before I reassembled the scanner just in case it wasn't fixed, but thankfully its working now!)

Why do I get an error message: Internal error occurred. Scan driver will be closed. Code:5,202,52?


Look at the bottom of the scanner and there should be a lock/unlock slider. Unlock it and see what happens.
If it is already unlocked then the drive/stepper motor or belt is bad.

Canon CanoScan LiDE 100 Flatbed Scanner Release lock switch


Beneath the scanner is a lock switch, ensure that it is in the unlocked position.

If it is in the unlocked position and it still displays this error message then you will need to get a technician to free the reader assembly and give it a clean. Not too big a job. It's a good little scanner I enjoy mine, even after the same thing happened to it.

Take care!

I cannot use scanner Lide 25.. because show error : "release the lock switch,detach the I/F cable and reconnect" How solution?


Sounds like the scan head is locked. This is usually done so you can transport the scanner without bouncing the scan head out of alignment. Look under the scanner and you will see it. Make sure it's in the UNLOCKED position. You may need to power the unit off/on to reset it or restart your computer to get a fresh attempt at the scanner.

You can download the scanning guide here:

Run the installer, then double click the index.html file to load the table of contents.
Good Luck (you may need to search for 'LiDE2030' if you can't find where you downloaded and extracted the files)

Canon CanoScan LiDE 500F... Problem:


Ideally, if the scanner can be tried on another computer, that would determine if there is a hardware problem. If the problem persisted on the other computer, then the indication would be a physical hardware issue that would not be fixable at the user level. Just be sure that you have cycled the lock switch a few times leaving it in the unlocked position. Also, for testing purposes, make sure nothing is on the glass when scanning. This is mainly in relation to heavy items such as books. If an item is heavy enough, it could put enough pressure on the scanner glass to push on the scanning element, preventing it from moving and giving a false indication that the unit is locked.

Good luck.
