I have a Canon 8400F film printer/scanner


'Tain't necessary. And not getting the part can be an improvement.
I cut out a cardboard template that allows me to scan 10 slides rather than the 4 of Canon's official slide adapter.

All the Canon part does is position them precisely so cropping and rotation are automatic. With Photoshop skills (File ' Automate), you can do the same yourself for whatever size. I ended up doing Brownie, 35, and 126 (gasp!) also.

For extra credit, make your adapter(s) out of genuine plastic rather than whatever cereal box you have lying around.

You have to remove the white protective sheet from the the lid. Once you remove it you will be able to scan film. Also make sure the lock button is not in the lock position.

Open the Canoscan Toolbox.
Click the Save option.
Put a check in the box that states "Display the Scanner Driver".
Click Scan.
Click the Advanced Mode tab.
Make sure Select Source is set to "Platen".
Click the Preview button at the top left


Another thing is this can be caused by a faulty FAU cable. One or more of the eight wires within this cable has fractured

If possible, try it on another computer. If the symptom is the same, then the scanner requires service.

Not scanning


You have tried everything possible!. Try and reinstall the OS. If some dll files are corrupted, this will resolve it. You may have to reinstall all other software!

Cannot scan film and slides


Check the cable that connects to the lid of the scanner. If it is disconnected, you won't get the Film options.

Bulb issue w/ scanner?


More likely a CCD/Firmware problem.
Try reinstalling the softqare, but if it persists replacing the scanner is the only option.
