    I tried this fix:

    Uninstall Nikon Scan.

    Remove the Nikon folder from all Users on the C:/Users or Root Drive!

    Open Regedit. Save the Registry file first before making changes to your desktop.

    Delete the Nikon folder under HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software

    and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE.

    Restart computer

    Reinstall Nikon Scan

    This however did not work for me. I was stuck uninstalling and reinstalling the software about 10x and this would not work for me.

    Here is what i did to resolve this isse:

    In Nikon Scan4 software
    Exported my current settings

    In the Tool Palette 1
    Change the "Multi Sample Scanning" to "Normal (1x)"
    After making this single change, it started working for me again.

    If for some reason this doesn't work you can go to "Settings" and "Reset to Factory Defaults"
    then slowly put back your settings to determine which setting is stopping your scanning from finishing.

    Good Luck ,

My computer crashed and so I bought new one. Have downloaded Samsung SF-555SP program and now it prints but I can't find any icons to make it scan. Thanks; Marvin ...


Scanning will work as separate plug in, when you request to acquire image from scanner from a standard image editor it will bring the task. Would you mind to provide your operating system and the programs that you are using for image editing so I can provide steps to scan.

Acquiring images from a TWAIN Device PhotoImpression accepts images acquired via standard TWAIN devices. 1. Click the Get Photo button on the Main Screen, and select Camera/Scanner. A list of your TWAIN devices will appear. 2. Select your desired device from the Select Source pull-down. 3. Select the album to which you wish to link the acquired image(s). 4. Click the Acquire Options button to set your acquire parameters: a. Specify the file format for the acquired images. b. Specify the save directory for the acquired images. c. Choose whether or not to retain the original file format (for example, some cameras may save in a specific format-you can have the program convert the files to an option of your choice, or retain the original format). d. Set the file names for the incoming files. You can choose to have the program automatically name the files using the current date, or you can specify your own unique file name. 5. Click the Acquire button if you are capturing from a still camera or scanner; click the Video Camera button if you are capturing a still from a video. Follow the procedures specific to your device to import the image into PhotoImpression.
Updates for the Arcsoft application "PhotoImpression" are available from Arcsoft
If there are connection errors, that could be from:
  1. USB connection error
  2. Hardware issue
Try plugging the camera (via USB) to a different port on the computer, then acquire the pictures using the included software, or your own photo editing software that is capable of acquiring images from a TWAIN device.
Hope this helps!

My web cam is only video capture no picture capture.


Hello there

From the start menu, left click on control menu (these are the steps for XP yours might be a little different). Then on the dialog box that pops up, left click on the "Printers and other Hardware" option.

Another dialog box will pop up. Left click on the scanners and cameras option to bring another dialog box up. From there double click with the left mouse key on the icon for your camera. This will bring up the "Scanner and Camera Wizard."

Left click the next key to get to the image capture screen, position the camera and left click on the word "Take Picture" below the image. The image will show up on the scrolling menu next to the image capture part of the box. Select it (left click the small box next to the image to get a check mark in the box) or use the select all option to get all pictures, then left click the next key.

Select the picture destination from the drop down menus that appear and hit the next key to save. The next dialog box will ask what is to be done with the pictures. Select the option in front of the correct choice and hit the next key to bring up the final screen.

From here the picture location will be able to be opened. Left click on finish if finished or select the other appropriate choice. The images should be on the computer and ready to work with.
If there is no scanner and camera wizard available try the next option(if you are using iphoto plus).

Open iPhoto Plus and left click on the file option. From the drop down menu, scroll down to acquire and select source. Left click on select source.

From the dialog box that pops up, select your particular camera by left clicking on the down arrow key and scroll downward until your camera is found. Select the camera from the list by left clicking on it and then left click the ok button. (If your camera is already selected, this step may be unnecessary).

Now left click on the file button again select acquire and then left click on image. From the box that comes up make sure the radial button--the round area before the options--before the word "image" has a dark circle in it indicating it is selected. Then left click on the acquire button.

A dialog box will appear that is titled "acquire pictures from video". Position the camera for what picture is desired then left click on the capture button.

The picture will appear in a drop down menu on the other side of the video feed. Scroll down if need be and select the picture or left click the "select all" button if you would like all of them and then left click get pictures.

Now all the pictures should appear in iPhoto Plus. Save them to your computer with the save option or edit them at your leisure.

How do i select the destination of a scanned file ie photoshop using epson scanner tx550


Firstly, the best way to get more from the scanner is to use it via an image application which is twain compatible e.g. serif photoplus, photoshop or gimp. Run the program, click file, then either aquire or import depending on the application you are using, the twain will then start the scanner software, use the scanner software as shown in the manual and this will produce the scanned image in e.g. photoshop. Click file on the program and click save as. This will give you the opportunity to save the file either onto the internal hard drive or an external memory stick etc. hope this helps

I have installed scanner and disc but cannot find how to use it.I found the test box and that works but now how do I scan?thanks


Canon and other Scanners have both hardware and software buttons to scan documents and photographs.
Scanning with a computer is done with a destination in mind. So the buttons and the software are associated with destinations.
Typical destinations are File, email, Application, and print.
In a simple scan process for copy or print, the item is placed face down on the scanner, then the print button is pressed on the front of the scanner.
The software for the scanner pops up on the screen and the scanner moves the imaging light across the scanner under the glass, reading the item on the scanner. The software sends the image to the default printer and it prints a copy.

You will need to setup your preferences in the software so that a photograph is scanned properly and a newspaper article is scanned to come out clear black and white.
Documents are best saved as PDF files and photographs as TIFF files.
The software will have an expert mode where you can change all the settings and a beginner mode where you let the software decide.
Canon has a great document for your scanner. If it is not on the disk, here is the link. It is called CanoScan 4200F Scanning Guide. I think it will help you to use the scanner for any task.

My scanner will not scan i think the software is gone off my computer


A couple of things could be out of place.

First of all, you need to use software that can scan, some scanners come with software to use, otherwise you have to use an image program that can "Aquire".

"Aquire" is usually found in a file menu of image editing programs, except Microsoft Paint.
In the case of "Microsoft Office" programs, it's in the Insert-Image-from scanner or camera menu.

If your scanner is not listed in these menus, or Aquire dosn't appear on these menus, your scanner driver is not installed. That then will be your first step.

Hope this helps.

Computer can't connect to scanner


If you are using Win XP there's another way of testing it with your computer for to check if your scanner is damaged or just a simple
software issue:

Usually for Epson it came with an Application called "Epson Scan"

> with the scanner connected to your Computer try to scan using a diff Application like PhotoShop or MS Paint

> to scan using Paint
Click on Start / All Programs / Accessories ( click and open "Paint" )

> from Paint click on File / and click "From Scanner or Camera" and it will open a scanner wizard., just follow the step by step procedure on how to scan.

note: if you have a diff. imaging devices ( like web cam ) it may ask you which one to use., make sure to select your scanner.

> if it can acquire an image using paint or diff application., there's no issue with the scanner unit.

> if it cannot acquire an image using paint or diff application., your scanner is broken / damaged.

To fix the issue with Epson Scan

> Uninstall "Epson Scan" from Control Panel / Add or Remove Programs / disconnect the scanner unit "USB cable"

> Control Panel / Administrative tools / Services ( look for Windows Image Acquisition < WIA > click on it and restart the service.

> Close all the windows and restart your computer.
