Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 600F Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Scanning negatives on CanoScan 600F, I get an error message "Cannot write or read. 252.0.0"

I have never been able to get my negative scanner to work.  It will pre-scan the images for a preview and the photos show up on screen so there's no issue with the scanning device but when I hit "scan" it scans the negatives but it won't save the file.  I get that error message no matter what I try.  When I'm scanning an 81/2 x 11 document it saves fine and I have no issue.  Help!  What does this error message number mean?  What do I have to do to fix it?

Re: Scanning negatives on CanoScan 600F, I get an error...

The Canon support site is the place to go for that if your Manual does not tell you.
However remove the software and reload it - it may be as simple as that.

Can I scan a negative 4X5 black\white to make a photo

In general, yes, you can scan a negative and make a photo from it. I don't really know your model scanner, my Canon 8400f has a film adapter and a light in the cover, but would have to scan a 4x5 in sections and I would have to piece it together after scanning.
The results I get from scanning negs are very good, as good as I ever got in my darkroom.

My Canoscan lide 700f will no longer scan negatives

Hello try to reinstall the software for the scanner from here:

Please select your windows system 32 or 64 bit.
Download the driver and uninstall the old software before you install the new.

Canon does make an driver upgrade once a while to fix previous problems with the software.

Hope this will help you

I am tring to scan my 35mm negatives

Select scan. When the window pops up look in the upper right hand corner of the window. You will see select source: drop down menu give you choices which includes negative film. Just select it. Then drop negatives into holder. Oh, make sure you remove the cover sheet that slides in and out of the cover.

The light on the lid, for scanning negatives won't move

You will most likely find that the FAU cable that connects the lift up lid part to the lower part of the scanner has at least one fractured wire within it. There are eight quite fine wires and the constant opening and closing of the lid has caused this to occur. Unless you have some micro-surgery skills and a small soldering iron it's off to the scanner shop, I'm afraid.

No option to scan Film Negatives

In order to see these options, you must have the Film Adapter Unit (FAU) attached to the scanner. The FAU is designed to scan in 35mm film, either positive or negative. The scanner has no options to scan in mounted 35mm slides.

Does the scanner work for scanning at all? If not, you may have a communication problem between the computer and the scanner, i.e., the computer doesn't know how the scanner is configured so it doesn't show the options. If it's a communication problem, check for any other USB devices that might interfere with communication. Especially, some printers seem to take over communications. Try disconnecting all other USB devices (except keyboard, mouse, etc.), reboot, and see if the situation corrects itself.
