I couldn't get the MP830 scanner USB interface to work on initial installation. Canon was unable to help, other than to say that the USB 2.0 had to be native (i.e., had to be on the motherboard, and not an addon board). London Drugs computer dept (from whom I bought the printer) suggested that re-installation of the operating system (WinXP) might help. Bingo - it worked!

Epson scanner cannot communicate


My solution was that Epson Scan was set to connect via network instead of local. (All was working fine, then it quit-something changed this setting) Try this, go to start, choose all programs, choose Epson folder, choose Epson Scan, choose Epson Scan Setting. In the pop up box set the connection to local or network, whichever is appropriate. Close the window and open photoshop and all works fine. It could be that your problem is the opposite of mine- I try switching this to the other setting even if the change is wrong, then switch it back to see if that works too.

Good Luck.

The scanner no longer works on my X7170. It used to work just fine. Wondered if I had a setting change or something. It will copy no problem.


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the everything turns back on, reconnect the printer into the computer. Wait for your computer to fully recognize the usb connection. Try to scan again.
You can also try to update your printer driver. Just insert the installation disc into the pc hard drive and run the setup application.

Scanner no longer communicates with the pc


Have your scanner turned on when you boot up your computer. Go to Programs, Acessories, Scanner and camera wizard, and it will give you directions if the scanner is not installed and recognized.

Scanner Powers up - does not intiate, cannot be accessed by PC


Power everything down, computer and scanner. Make sure your scanner is connected to the AC wall outlet, and to the pc. Then turn on your computer. Reinstall the driver and software by following this link http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=kVFQIoh3k1nuobYrVg0U002FnSoPZ+wxlW6UdEWrYhTx6DwU003D&tc=6 And download the latest update (2007) and you should be good to go

All in One Scanner/Printer problems


Go to this link and type "cannot communicate with scanner" in the search box. Click Search. Then select the "ERROR: Cannot communicate with scanner" link. You will see several things to try to correct your problem. Usually, this error shows up if there is another USB device connected which prevents the computer from "seeing" the scanner, even though it can print without problem. So do try to disconnect any other USB device (except mouse or keyboard) and reboot the system.
