I get error 'Unable to find destination PC-Check the PC' on Kyocera Mita


This error means that there is a communication problem between the printer and the computer that is receiving scanned file. The error is usually prompted on network installed printers.

Check to ensure that the Scanner File Utility software is running and the computer is able to receive data.
Try restarting the computer and printer. Disconnect both units from power supply for five minutes before restarting.
Check if you have firewall or security software active on computer that can block communication from scanner. Ensure that the scanner utility is listedas an exception on firewall settings, if the application is not present, then you need to add it to allowed applications list.
Ensure that you have granted Scanner Utility access to system resources if asked.
Reinstall printer software and driver on PC. This can be done either using the disk provided with the printer, or using the download from Mita website.
Test the computer network cable. If cable is worn it can cause communication errors. This problem is usually occurring on LAN (network) printer installation. If using local installation via USB, then test using a different USB cable. If USB cable is damaged or too long (over 10 m.) , then you may get the error stated on local installation.

The most common reason for this problem is firewall settings or network problems. Network problems may be difficult to troubleshoot. Remember also that there is a built in firewall in the router resident software. If the router is set to block inbound communication from printer to computer, or if printer and computer are in two different IP ranges (eg. and, then you may get communication between computer and printer blocked by router firewall.

Here a setup manual (click to download), also ensure that you have performed scanner setup correctly.

Your hard drive. The scanner uses space on your hard drive. Do a clean disk and remove any files that you don't need. YOu probably need at least 100 mb free for the scanner

Scanner not working need software install

hi friend,

u can download software in

Installing a scanner on newer PCs is pretty straight-forward. If the scanner is a USB device, you'll need to install the software CD that came with the scanner. These will normally be one or two disks and a few others that usually only prove to be trial software or other programs you do not need. Be wary of installing these third-party CDs, as you likely will never use them and they tend to want to take over the way media is handled on your computer.

First, unpack the scanner from the box. Make sure you have all of the attachments and especially the quick setup instructions if they were in the box. You can assemble the scanner and set if off to the side. You can plug the power cable in, but do not plug the USB cable into the computer.
Boot up the computer and load the scanner software disk into the CD ROM drive. If it does not launch automatically, you can navigate to it through My Computer and click the setup.exe file. If there are additional disks for your scanner that need to be loaded, you will be prompted for them.
Once the software has been installed, you can then attach the USB cable to the computer. Windows should find the new scanner and load the drivers for it automatically.
Troubleshooting Scanner Problems:

If your scanner had worked in the past but has stopped functioning, you can usually unplug the scanner, then go to Add / Remove Programs in the Control Panel and remove the scanning software. Then you can repeat the installation process above.

thank u for using fixya

How to use the scanner on my Epson 60000

there are different type of scannig programs. I am not that particular with your epson scanner. You can try scanning the document and if you want to archive it you can try choosig the option of file type as compressed tif. If you do not have this option there would be times that scanning software will have the preview of the document you have scanned and will asked you if you want to reduce or enlarge size. If resizing option is not available in your scanner software you can try saving it first in your computer. After saving the document try to open microsoft word and create a new file. Then look for the document you have scanned and copy that document. Once you have copied it go back to microsoft word and paste the documet. you could now resize the document manually. but for further clarification you can try calling your scanner provider. they might have some programs for it and will give it to you

Try not reinstalling the various printer/scanner software from your disk but from a download from Canon's web for your printer.
