Sr60 scanning from stand

I am using an sr60 with a dock to scan in bar codes. I am using code39 fine but it won't scan code 128 and codabar from the stand. It does scan codabar if I manually hold the scanner farther away. Code 128 doesn't always work while standing.

SOURCE: CanoScan LiDE 50 error code: 2,7,0

Has your scanner been working before?
If so, has anything changed since then such as new printers or other devices added to the computer, or upgraded to a new OS?
Which OS are you using?

When exactly does the error occur?
Does ScanGear open?
Are you able to preview?

Try connecting the USB cable to another port on the computer (directly to the computer...not through a HUB or any other device). Bypassing a hub, which would have to be a powered HUB, or other devices would rule out any issues with those devices.

Ultimately trying the scanner on another computer would rule out issues with the scanner as well.

SOURCE: unable to scan b/w neg's correctly using Digital ICE

Unfortunately, you cannot use Digital ICE on B&W films due to silver particles contained within the film. The Digital ICE future only works with C-41 (negatives) and E-6 (slides) processed films, but not B&W films.

SOURCE: Canon LIDE 500F scanner does not scan - returns error message about releasing lock switch, detaching interface cable and reconnecting

I had the exact same problem with another scanner (LiDE 80) 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).

Hopefully my solution will work on the 500F, albeit with some modifications you'll have to figure out yourself. :P

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!)

Manual carriage return necessary after scanning barcode

With the Symbol scanners, they usually come with a sheet at least of scan codes to configure the scanner. One of those bar codes will have the option of not needing to manually hit the carriage return. What model scanners are they? You can probably find the codes from Symbol.

Canon 9080C not scanning 11x17 pages

The problem is probably in your scanning software, you have to tell it if you want to scan legal size, and if you leave it set for legal all the time it might put dark bars under the letter size docs. It depends on the version of software on your computer.

It sounds like you need to program a Tab after each scan. You will need to download the manual from so you can access the setup bar codes.
