"Scanning in progress" reported even when I'm not scanning anything

I cannot scan or print from my Sharp AL-1642CS Copier. I keep getting a "Scanning in progress" message every time I try to print or scan anything, even though the scanner does not scan anything. Any help? Thanks in advance

    I can't scan or print anything

I did (several times), but it still doesn't work. It appears that the problem arises from the fact that I use a Tablet PC and the Tablet PC version of Windows XP. I tried printing/scanning from a regular laptop and it worked fine. Are there any known issues with Tablet PC and Sharp AL-1642CS?

You need to install the print driver and Sharpdesk before you connect the USB cable.

Can the Sharp al1642cs work with just usb connection?

I've been using my AL1642CS connected by USB to my Windows XP Pro desktop for about a year now - very reliably - both for printing and for scanning. I love the duplex print feature, so much easier on the trees!

I've also printed to it through the USB port on my network router - but then I can't use it for scanning since Microsoft never enabled network scanning - only network printing!
