Re: canon cd-4050

On the main screen tap the "QUIT" in the upper right hand corner of the scrreen. This should bring up a smaller box asking "Are sure you want to quit?" with a "Cancel" and an "OK" tab. Do not select either tab, instead tap you finger on the left side of the small box twice, then on the right side once, then again on the left side (L L R L) in rapid manner. This should bring up a small box stating you are in "Service Mode", tap "OK". This should bring up a box with 3 tabs at the top. Tap the "Battery" tab. The next box will have a tab on the lower left side "Exchange Battery", tap it, then tap "OK" on the next screen. This should set the battery install date to the current date and the expiration date 2 years out. Back out and shut down and reboot. You should no longer get the "Replace battery" message. The screen should display the new dates for the battery.

Hope this helps.

Re: canon cd-4050

The last two guys were almost right. You need to have a mouse plugged into the unit. Then turn it on. When you get the battery needs to be replaced, use your mouse and click okay. Next you will click on the Quit tab, in the top right corner. When the "are you sure" Quit box appears use your mouse and click 2 times on the left side of the box, then one time on the right, then one more time on the left. You don't have to be fast doing it. Hope this helps, cause I tried 100's of different ways.

(Controller CPU judgment)
If a communication error occurs between
the motor or sensor and PCB, an error
message appears. If it appears, reset the
main body and computer power. If the same
error message/code still appears, check the
connection of the related part, and if it is faulty,
correct it. If there is no problem with connections,
replace the related part. For motors,
check the connected drive transmission parts
and operation check sensor as well.

Scanner won't feed

Fan the documents and check if they are loose. Stapled documents can be 'sticky' even after removing pins. Clena the pick-& ****** up rollers. Switch off the scanner and rotate them by hand so that all areas canbe cleaned (In power-on position, they are locked), If worhout replace them. Normally they last about 250,000 scans. Using a damp cloth is generally enough, dont use solvents.

Canon DR-3080 CII Scanner

I recieved this error when trying to scan pages in using our new Kofax scanning solution with a DR-3080CII. I discovered that the latest canon driver for that scanner was not compatible with the software and it made the application hang in the background. I found an older driver that was compatible and installed it, no more error.

TWAIN message


The Twain error message sounds like a Windows error... I wonder if the software you are trying to use is for Windows, and not MAC.

First scan a single page and note the file size. Then scan two pages and check if the file size is changed. If the file size is changed, then you have problem with your viewing software. If the file size is same, then check your setting in the scaniing software.

Try plugging in a key board and hitting the escape key, works for me every time.

Once in you can goto the Tools > Admin and adjust the domain settings.
