Question about Canon CanoScan 8400F Flatbed Scanner
Open the CanoScan Toolbox.
Click the Save option.
Put a check in the box that states "Display the Scanner Driver".
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.
