The best way to scan images to save on yourcomputer is to use the scanner software on the computer. Not the scan functionon the scanner. You don't say what type of scanner software you have but usually scannersoftware works this way: 1) Place photo on scanner 2) Open scanner software 3) Using the software, Initiate scan 4) Name the Scanned item and save it to your desired location/folder Note: some applications will automatically save to --My Documents--My Pictures 5) Repeat process for each pic to be scanned
Also, if you are just scanning, it should not matter what the ink situation is.
Hi, I have a CanoScan9900F and I never had any problem before. I have a MacBookPro with MacOSX and I use CanoScanToolbox when I want to scan.Never had any problems but all in a sudden I get message: "Cannot communicate with scanner. Cable may be disconnected. Check Status. Scanner driver will be closed." I tried a different USB-cable, but no result. My worries are that the scanner is broken. As I recall it, the scanner used to make a short "scan" sound when the electric cord is pluged in. What do you think or suggest? Please help me out? Best Regards Tess
This a USB scanner and it supports the following OS's: Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Professional / Microsoft® XP (32 bit/64 bit) / Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 (32 bit/64 bit) / Microsoft® Windows Vista™ (32 bit/64 bit). IF, the usb cable is connected in the front usb connectors go ahead and plug it in the back usb ports since sometimes the front usb ports are either to slow or not connected. Additional, after pluging the the scanner on the back usb ports restart your computer and then proceed reinstalling the drivers for it.
Try uninstalling the drivers for the scanner and the printer. Restart the computer without either the scanner or printer pluged in. After restart install the drivers and only plug up the USB cable for each device when asked by the software.
You might try turning the register off, confirming the scanner is pluged in and the screws tight then turning the register back on. You might also chek that none of the pins on the scanner plug have been bend.
following this link i've found resetting instructions for this scanner:
1.. Disconnect the USB cable and the power cable from the scanner. Make sure the power cable is still connected to the power source. 2.. Press the Scan and Email buttons at the same time, while plugging the power cable back into the scanner. The scanner will enter a Demo Mode. 3.. Press the Cancel button on the scanner to start the test. 4.. To end the test, disconnect and reconnect the power cable without holding the buttons down.
I've had exactly the same problem with my scanjet 5400c (blue distorted images) but after resetting the scanner (see instuctions posted above) the problem was fixed
Plug a scanner into your pc,usually by usb cable. Follow all instructions included with scanner including installing drivers (software) For flatbed scanners you would lay your picture on the scanner glass,close the top and push "scan" either on the scanner or in the software provided with your scanner. The software you will install will allow you to pick the location of where the pictures will be saved to. On the other hand,if the pictures are still in your camera,you can just transfer them to your pc. via a usb cable.
