Re: Canoscan 4200F problem with copy function

Do you also have an HP printer on All-in-one installed? There may be a conflict with the HP driver.

Film scaning options are missed in Select Source

I had the same problem. My solution is: "Just go to settings on Canoscan Toolbox. Then go to copy button, drop down and select scan2. This comes "Copy" as default setting. Change it to scan2. Click ok. On Canoscan toolbox main interface click scan2 and bingo, you'll see film option on select source . Hope this works

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.

uninstall all drivers and software that cam with the scanner, and then try installing the software again before connection the scanner... this is a problem when there are two different twain drivers, look for C:\Windows\twain_32\CNQ4803(2) see if there is a driver in there.
