Question about Canon CanoScan LIDE50 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

How do I open up a CanoScan LIDE50 so I can reattach a loose cable?

How do I open up a CanoScan LIDE 50? I received a lide 50 as a gift, it was broken, and I see that a cable clip at the end of the scanner has been either been broken or disconnected, and I wish to open the unit and reconnect it. And then I will worry about the driver, can you help with some directions to open the plastic case or remove the gass from the top. Thanks Rich

Hi,

Most (but not all) desktop scanners' casing are locked in place by bottom screws. Often these screws (2~4) would be underneath the rubber feet/pad of the scanner or a sticker. In some models, there are narrow slots underneath. These slots are the locking points of the top cover and would require the use of a flat screwdriver to pry open. Still others are simple snap locks at the front/rear portion of the junctions of the top and bottom cover/panel. Other than the screw type, most opening would require a bit of force to un-snap the locks. It helps to slightly pry the joints open with a flat tool such as a metal ruler and force only on the areas determined to have the snaps.

Should you be successful in prying the halves apart, the glass is held in place sometimes by an angular plastic strip locked in place by 2 small screws.

The driver is available here. Pls be reminded that drivers are OS specific.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up of should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Lide 60 not working in mountain lion


Guide to installing Canon CanoScan LiDE 35, 50 and 60 on Mac OS X 10.8. Mountain Lion:


FIRST PART: DELETING OLD LiDE DRIVERS AND SOFTWARE


  • If this is the first attempt to install the scanner, skip this part


  • Trash the following files/folders from these folders:


HD:/Library/Image Capture/Twain Data Sources

delete the CanoScan CanoScan XXXX.ds file

(Make note of any other files that may be in this folder. If other files are present, move them to the desktop for now. Then place them back after successfully using the scanner.)


HD:/Library/Preferences

delete the 'CanoScan XXXX' folder


HD:/Users/Shared

delete the folders containing the name CanoScan, or starting with CNQL.


HD:/Applications

delete the CanoScan Toolbox Application


HD:/Users/YOUR-MAC-USERNAME/Library/Preferences

delete any items named "CanoScan Toolbox"


  • Restart your computer, then empty the trash


SECOND PART: MAKING YOUR SCANNER WORK


  • Make sure your scanner is well connected


  • Download the right driver depending on your Model. Also download the Scanner Software. Copy the filenames and search them via Google. Make sure you download the Canon files from an official Canon domain.


CanoScan LiDE 50 and LiDE 35 work both with the 35 driver:

lide35osx7721en.dmg


CanoScan LiDE 60 driver:

lide60osx11131en.dmg


VueScan Software:

http://www.hamrick.com/#download

VueScan 9.2 (or later) x32 for Mac OS X


Alternative to VueScan: CanoScan Toolbox. I prefer VueScan.

Try your luck with Version 4 or Version 5.

CanoScan Toolbox 4: cstbosx4934ej4.dmg

CanoScan Toolbox 5: cstbosx5014ej4.dmg


  • Open the downloaded driver file (lide35osx7721en.dmg or lide60osx11131en.dmg)


  • and Double-click the ScanGear file, install and restart when prompted


  • Open the downloaded VueScan file (vuex3292.dmg) and drag the VueScan application to the Mac Applications folder


  • Open the VueScan application. The scanner should be recognized automatically.


(Alternatively try and install CanoScan Toolbox 4 or 5)

I have a Canon LiDE 60 need to open scanner. How do I open it?


I just fixed my lide50. The data cable on the left was getting stuck when the scanner was halfway the page. I put some tape around the cable to make it more stiff, now it´s o.k.

To open it you have the remove the long strips on the left and right hand side of the glass panel. they´re glued to the glass but can be removed using a small screw driver. After that carefully move the glass to the backside, now you can lift it. Be careful when moving the scanner around, the ´scanhead´ can get detached, it´s a pain in the *** to get it back together again.

Installing CanoScan Lide 20 / Lide 30 into Mac OS X 10.5.5


I found this scanner at a garage sale today, and had trouble finding this info myself. Finally stumbled upon this site ( http://cadwell.livejournal.com/39545.html )

I'm using it on a Powermac G5 but both the driver and toolbox app say they are univeral binary. Hopefully this gets you up and running too:

CanoScan LiDE 30 on Mac OS X 10.5
This technical help may seem completely out of place on this art blog but after scouring the internet for 3 hours trying to set my 6 year old scanner up on my new MacBook, I found this info half way down a lengthy comments section of a random blog. So I thought I'd post it here (slightly altered) as a message in a bottle to anyone else in need of it.

How to set up CanoScan LiDE 30 on Mac OSX 10.5
STEP 1:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=6623
STEP 2:
Select MAC OS X
STEP 3:
Download BOTH:
LiDE 20/LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver. 7.0.1.1aX
(Mac OS X)

lide20lide30n670un676un1240uosx7011aen.dmg
CanoScan Toolbox Ver. 4.1.3.0X
(Mac OS X)

CSTb4130MXE.dmg.gz
STEP 4:
INSTALL CanoScan Toolbox Ver. 4.1.3.0X
STEP 5:
INSTALL LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver. 7.0.1.1aX . Make sure Applications>CanoScan Toolbox 4.1>Plug-Ins is selected as the install location.
STEP 6:
You will be asked to RESTART. You should.
STEP 7:
When you run CanoScan you can choose Photoshop as the default program to open the image in once it has scanned. You do not need Photoshop to open using Rosetta for this to work.
NOTE: If you want to scan directly from within Photoshop CS3, you need to copy the driver 'ScanGear CS 7.0X' which is found in Applications>CanoScan Toolbox 4.1>Plug-Ins into the photoshop pluggins folder, Applications> Adobe Photoshop CS3>Plug-Ins>Import/Export. You also need to open photoshop in Rosetta mode. Apple + I on the photoshop icon and select 'Open using Rosetta'. I would not recommend using this method though.
STEP 8:
Go to System Preferences>Accounts>Login Items and remove both of the following:
N067U_ButtonManager.app
N124U_ButtonManager.app
STEP 9:
SCAN.

CanoScan LiDE 50 error code: 2,7,0


Has your scanner been working before?
If so, has anything changed since then such as new printers or other devices added to the computer, or upgraded to a new OS?
Which OS are you using?

When exactly does the error occur?
Does ScanGear open?
Are you able to preview?


Try connecting the USB cable to another port on the computer (directly to the computer...not through a HUB or any other device). Bypassing a hub, which would have to be a powered HUB, or other devices would rule out any issues with those devices.

Ultimately trying the scanner on another computer would rule out issues with the scanner as well.

Hi am gonna provide you with the link from where you can download it, keep it mind that if you have changed operating systems, then the scanner might not be compatible with you current operating system. For instance if you had Windows ME or Windows XP but currently have Windows Vista there might be some compatibility issues. Good Luck! http://drivers.softpedia.com/progDownload/Canon-CanoScan-LiDE-Download-816.html

This seems to work with fink/xsane or the canoscan drivers from their site, but neither as well as you might like.
