Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 30 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

My canon lide 20 has a mind of its own

I go to scan something from photoshop. It works the next time it doesn't and come up with a communication error driver closed. then I will go to a different user account on the mac and it works then it doesn't. I've hardly used the scanner but I have just added the second user account sometimes it seems to share the device so i don't think its a problem with adding the second account. Any ideas. Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling must say that it's confusing as the installation on the screen is nothing like in the manual. Maybe this is faulty.

Communication error ocurs only when the scanner receives signal from PC to move but some where it gets stuck and application receves faulty signal from the scanner , i would suggest to clean the Roller Rod with OIL.

I installed the new Canon LiDE 110 scanner drivers. When I click on the Scan button, it gives the error msg: Cannot Communicate with scanner. Cable may be disconnected. Scanner driver will be closed


I was getting that same error message, every second time I tried to scan something. I had the scanner connected to a USB 3.0 jack. I switched to USB 2.0 jack, and the problem was solved.

I HAVE CANON LIDE 30 IT DOESNOT WORK IT GIVES ME A MESSAGE THAT THEIR IS NO APPLICATION REGISTERed for this event


The driver is trying to open your chosen 'image edit' (application) software (MS Paint, PhotoShop, Panintshop Pro or whatever), BUT you have uninstalled it, moved it or not chosen one ....

Go into the Control Panel, Scanners & Cameras, choose the LIDE scan driver right click for 'properties', Events tab, Select an Event pull down = 'scan start button' (or whatever) and select (browse to) your image edit package ..

Where is the power button on a canoscan lide 70 scanner?


There is no power button on mine. It gets its power from the high speed usb so it is always ready. Every time I boot up my mac I hear the scanner go thru a warm up scan. I have downloaded the twain plugin for photoshop and access it that way. The lamp will go on when you preview scan something.

Canon ScanGear CS driver error Code: 2,252,0 - Can't preview Actually I have the Canon CanoScan LiDE 80 Flatbed Scanner - but this wasn't presented as an option, so I thought I'd try the nearest...


Hi,

Canon ScanGear CS driver error Code: 2,252,0. Error when trying to Preview scan using ScanGear in your program, e.g. Word, PhotoShop...

I had the same problem, Canon Technical were clueless on this error code. Yes the problem occured when trying to preview first however I could scan but without any preview, pointless really.

I have fixed it for Windows Xp SP3, Canon Lide 80. To Fix:

You need to download the latest ScanGear driver and Deldrv.exe from the canon website. You don't need the Toolbox, http://software.canon-europe.com/

It would help if you have Tuneup 2009 (even Trail version) for the later parts of this fix: http://www.tune-up.com/download/ just click download, you don't need to give them your email address.

1. Save these on C:
2. Remove the USB cable from your scanner - make sure it is unplugged.
3. Run Deldrv.exe, select your scanner and uninstall.

4. Now you will need to go into 'C:/WINDOWS/TWAIN_32' folder; you must remove anything in this folder - safest thing to do is CUT any items and paste them on the C: or personal folder.

5. Now the register parts - you need to purge your registry of any left over values. I found out after several attempts that this final step fixed the problem for me.

Basically through Windows XP Regedit or TuneUp Reg Editor search the ENTIRE registry for first 'ScanGear', second, 'Canon' and third if you have installed previously, 'Canon Toolbox'. Find any entries relating to any Canon scanner software and delete them. I only found around 6 or 7 entries to remove.

6. If you have TuneUp run '1-Click maintence' (correct problems) and afterwards run the 'Register defragger'. Restart.

7. On the next bootup your register should be optimised. Ok, disable any Anti-virus software.

8. Run the scangear setup winzip file you saved on C:. * it will extract a folder to C:. If get an error with the extraction, try running it anywhere else except C drive. Alternatively if you have WinRar, right click and manual extract contents. The scangear setup winzip file/folder (called lide80vst7250a_xpen) only contained a readme and setupSG.exe.

9. You must run the setupSG inside this folder. And you're done. Enable your anti-virus.

9. Now connect USB to scanner, Windows should pick it up. Open Word or PhotoShop > run the scangear program to preview.

10. Done! It worked my end.

Please let me know if this helped you.

Installing CanoScan Lide 20 / Lide 30 into Mac OS X 10.5.5


I found this scanner at a garage sale today, and had trouble finding this info myself. Finally stumbled upon this site ( http://cadwell.livejournal.com/39545.html )

I'm using it on a Powermac G5 but both the driver and toolbox app say they are univeral binary. Hopefully this gets you up and running too:

CanoScan LiDE 30 on Mac OS X 10.5
This technical help may seem completely out of place on this art blog but after scouring the internet for 3 hours trying to set my 6 year old scanner up on my new MacBook, I found this info half way down a lengthy comments section of a random blog. So I thought I'd post it here (slightly altered) as a message in a bottle to anyone else in need of it.

How to set up CanoScan LiDE 30 on Mac OSX 10.5
STEP 1:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=6623
STEP 2:
Select MAC OS X
STEP 3:
Download BOTH:
LiDE 20/LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver. 7.0.1.1aX
(Mac OS X)

lide20lide30n670un676un1240uosx7011aen.dmg
CanoScan Toolbox Ver. 4.1.3.0X
(Mac OS X)

CSTb4130MXE.dmg.gz
STEP 4:
INSTALL CanoScan Toolbox Ver. 4.1.3.0X
STEP 5:
INSTALL LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver. 7.0.1.1aX . Make sure Applications>CanoScan Toolbox 4.1>Plug-Ins is selected as the install location.
STEP 6:
You will be asked to RESTART. You should.
STEP 7:
When you run CanoScan you can choose Photoshop as the default program to open the image in once it has scanned. You do not need Photoshop to open using Rosetta for this to work.
NOTE: If you want to scan directly from within Photoshop CS3, you need to copy the driver 'ScanGear CS 7.0X' which is found in Applications>CanoScan Toolbox 4.1>Plug-Ins into the photoshop pluggins folder, Applications> Adobe Photoshop CS3>Plug-Ins>Import/Export. You also need to open photoshop in Rosetta mode. Apple + I on the photoshop icon and select 'Open using Rosetta'. I would not recommend using this method though.
STEP 8:
Go to System Preferences>Accounts>Login Items and remove both of the following:
N067U_ButtonManager.app
N124U_ButtonManager.app
STEP 9:
SCAN.
