    I have the same problem. Scanner worked fine for 12 months. Uninstalled and installed but no change. Problem appeared after installing Windows XP service pack 2. However, it may not be relevant.

    Having the same problem with a CanonScan 8400F. Tried using the Calibrate button on the advanced tab of the ScanGear CS TWAIN screen as suggested in other postings on the web, but continued getting the same 2,178,0 error. Have also tried removing the negative film cover. Cannot seem to get past this. It worked fine a week ago.

    I tried everything in the way of disconnecting USB and power cables, etc.



    Keep getting the same message Code 2.178.00.



    Device tests ok, lamp lights on, carrier starts to move a few inches and stops, returns, and error code above appears.

Try this:

Open the CanoScan Toolbox.
Click the Save option.
Put a check in the box that states "Display the Scanner Driver".
Click Scan.
Click the Advanced Mode tab.
Make sure Select Source is set to "Platen".
Click the Preview button at the top left.
If the error still occurs, then most likely it will be a service issue.

One thing to check...see if the inside lamp illuminates when you turn the scanner on using the power button at the back left side of the scanner.

I am having the same problem with an CanoScan 8400F, just started 2 days ago. I have tried all the usual things pwr off, usb, uninstalled driver, downloaded latest, get the same error each time. Code: 2,178,0. I even hooked it up to another pc that had never used it or its drivers and when tested it does the same thing with the same error on a different pc. This is crazy.

What is communication error 20 mean ?


The Comm. Error message may appear if the machine experienced a communication error while sending or receiving a message. This type of error is generally caused by interference on the telephone line, an incorrect telephone line connection, or an alarm system or other device on the line. In your case, it lost connection to the host / server. You just need to keep retrying or check the settings on the phone and confirm with the vendor if they have changed some settings on their end...such as PORT #, etc...

Get error message "disc error" will not advance after zenith trade mark stops whirling


I'd like to help but need more information.

1. What do you mean by "will not advance"? Do you mean you put in a disc, it starts up (do you hear it spin?), the trademark is whirling, and then it stops and doesn't do anything else? Can you hear it stop spinning? Does the screen say anything else?

2. Does it do this with any other discs, or just one particular one? ("Disk has been changed" may mean this but I just wanted to verify.)

High definition audio controller This device cannot start. (Code 10)


If you run into the error "This device cannot start. Code 10 (often followed by a driver identifier, for example "This device cannot start. Code 10 in audio driver"), here is what it means.

The Windows error "This device cannot start. Code 10 or "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" is a hardware error that most commonly means that you have a bad, missing, or incompatible device driver. So, for example, "This device cannot start. Code 10 in audio driver" means that you have a bad or missing or incompatible driver for your sound card.

The technical explanation for this message, according to Microsoft, is this:

"If the device has a FailReasonString value in its hardware key, that string appears as the error message. The driver or enumerator puts this registry string value there. If there is no FailReasonString in the hardware key, you receive the following error message:

This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

What does that mean in plain English? It means that if the device which is throwing the error has added its own custom error text to your Windows system when the device was installed, then when the device encounters an error, you will see the custom error message specific to that device. But if it doesn't have its own custom error message, then Windows uses its own generic error message for devices, which is "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

Microsoft recommends that when this happens, you click "Update Driver" to update the drivers for the device. You can also start the Windows troubleshooting wizard by going to the general properties tab of the device, and clicking on "Troubleshoot".

Before doing this, be sure that you have the correct and most up-to-date versions of the driver(s) for that device. You can also try uninstalling and reinstalling the device, using the disk which came with it.

Finally, you can go to the website of the device's manufacturer, and check their downloads or support section for current, up-to-date drivers.
Go to Toshiba support site look for Toshiba Satellite A135 drivers, download the one for your windows 32 or 64 bit install, restart and off you go. Regards, Mike

Download error, http response: 404 not found i can no longer download videos from youtube.


This isn't an error at your end, what this error message means is that the server hosting the files for downloading has changed the location of the file you are trying to download. So the URl address of the file has changes and when you try to download the file with the old address it throws very popular 404 error.

So don't worry about it, try after 1-2 days and you will able to download.

Thanks !!

It could mean that, but check the email address and make sure that it is correct. Also, could your daughter have changed her email address or maybe her mailbox is full.
