I have installed HP PHoto and Imaging Softward for ScanJet 3570c 48 bit. Everytime I try to click on icons on the scanner, my computer shows an error message that there is a problem with connecting to the...

Does the same error occur if you launch a scan from the computer? What OS do you have? Vista only has a basic driver available and does not support the scanner buttons. (You can launch the scans from a number of options: third-party software, Windows Fax and Scan (new scan), Microsoft Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera > New Scan) and Windows Photo Gallery.)

If the error occurs when you launch the scan from the computer, try a new data cable and different USB ports. Try a direct USB connection if you use a hub. Then check your USB ports and the drivers for the USB. (For Windows, look in the Device Manager. Start > Control Panel > System > Device Manager (exact directions will depend on the OS).

The HP Photo and Imaging software requires you to set the default scan destinations in the software before you can use the buttons on the scanner (for those OS/driver versions that support the feature). Always open the software and scan from the computer to see what the defaults will be. Each version of HP's imaging software set up these buttons differently; the help option is useful. Try Scan > Scan settings to find where to set the color and black & white destinations.

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with your OS and whether the computer can launch a scan, I'll provide additional help if I can.

Be certain that you followed the step-by-step instructions (From ION Support):

1. Turn on the computer.

2. Insert the installation CD into the CDROM

drive and the installation menu will appear. *

3. When you see the installation menu, click Install Driver.

4. Follow the on-screen instructions.

5. When the driver installation is complete, click BlazePhoto to install the software.

6. Follow the on-screen instructions.

7. If your computer does not have DirectX 9.0 or greater or Adobe Reader, click those items to install them. (If your

computer is using Windows XP Service Pack 2 or higher, Windows Vista, or Windows XP Professional, this is not


8. Click Exit to close the window.

Note: The first time you connect PICS 2 PC to your computer, wait a few seconds until you see a dialog box

that says "Found New Hardware" (this means the computer recognizes the PICS 2 PC). After you see this,

PICS 2 PC is ready to use.

If you followed the above instruction and still have a problem, reinstall (first, Remove from Add/Remove Programs) the software and be certain that the USB cable is snug.

If your computer is not recognizing the ION PIC2, be certain that your computer has a USB 2.0 port. Check your Device Manager to verify what USB port.

If still a problem, what error message(s) are you getting ? What operating system software (Vista, Windows 7, etc.) ?

Hope this helps.

    Error in scanner. Turn off scanner and follow instructions in manual.Scanner driver will be closed. (code:201) Unable to open TWATN source Please check connection Then re-start Toolbox.

    This error can be caused by many different issues. Try the following resolutions in order until your issue is fixed-

    1. You should disconnect and reconnect the USB cable at both ends to ensure there is a secure connection on the device side as well as the computer side. It may also be necessary to try a different USB port on the computer. Additionally, you may need to disconnect other USB devices, temporarily, in order to determine if a conflict exists.

    2. unistall and re-install drivers-
    1. Place the CanoScan Setup CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive.
    2. When the CanoScan Setup Utility menu appears, click the option to 'Uninstall the Software' and then follow the prompts.

    3. Disable Third-party Software
    Software applications that are active during installation can cause errors, installation difficulties and even abort the installation.*1 Close all running applications, including anti-virus programs, before installing Canon Software. You can also prevent these applications from starting through 'System Configuration Utility' (also referred to as 'msconfig') in Windows 98/Me, Windows XP and Windows Vista.

    If your computer is part of an office network: Network permissions, security software, etc. may be interfering with proper communication. Please contact your System or Network Administrator before attempting to disable software on your system.

    a. See your applications' documentation for instructions on how to close it.

    b. If you are unable to locate the documentation or the application appears to be running after it is closed, disable the startup items in the Windows 'System Configuration Utility'.

    c. If disabling startup items in 'msconfig' does not correct the issue, disable non-Microsoft related services in 'Services' tab of 'System Configuration Utility' window.

    d. Attempt to install the Canon software (drivers). If the drivers were already installed, uninstall them (keep the third-party software disabled) and then reinstall the drivers.

    e. After installation is complete, set 'msconfig' back to 'Normal Startup'.

    • STI device driver
    • TWAIN driver
    • ISIS driver
    • User Utility
    After all have been installed, reboot your computer. Once booted, power on your scanner and allow Windows to locate and finish installing the drivers.
