    My scanner worked fine till now. I connected the scanner and the computer (Mac OS 9) and opened Canoscan Toolbox 4.1, then CanoScan Toolbox X, pressed Scan-1 to scan a photo ( there was no sign of life in the scanner), and a window popped up, saying "Cannot Communicant with scanner. Cable may be disconnected. Check status, Scanner driver will be closed." the cable seems fine to me. and I was doing what I did before, but I don't know what it means about "status" and "the driver will be closed," would you please help me? Thank you!

Why can my friends not hear me talking to them on Skype?


On a Mac mini made in 2010 or later, you'll need to use an external microphone to communicate as they're not built in. Plugging in a pair of Apple EarPods or headphones into the headphone jack should work just fine.

USB microphones will also do the trick (but you'll need to adjust some audio settings in Skype).

Hope this helps!

Neat scanner not working since upgraded to Mavericks.


I'm using a software called VueScan, which works with lots of scanners without original driver installations. Maybe try it?

Cannot communicate with scanner (Canoscan Lide60 on Mac OSX 10.5)


I also had this problem and scoured ALL the apple forums to no avail.
Then I discovered what my problem was. I run parallels on my mac and it had nabbed my scanner as one of its USB devices! All I had to do was uncheck this device for use in the windows Virtual machine and it came back to mac. The strange thing was, I didn't use or install the scanner in the windows environment, yet parallels stole it from the macOS side.
If you have Parallels installed, I wonder how many other problems with USB connected devices could be solved by visiting it first?

Error message says: Scanner is locked, Computer cannot communicate with scanner.


Have you checked the obvious? The scanner lock switch is located on the bottom of the scanner back right corner. --Ted

Scanner won't communicate with computer


Try this,

Go to Control Panel >> Device Manager, look for the scanner in 'Device Manager' under 'Imaging Devices'
Right click on it and select 'Uninstall' and allow it to be uninstalled.
Remove the USB lead from the scanner.
Re-boot the Computer.
Once windows appears and is ready toi use, re-connect the scanner USB lead.
Windows should re-install the drivers and tell you the scanner is ready to use................hopefully!

Scan function won't work with Mac OS10.5.5 & Airport


I plugged the printer cable directly to my laptop instead of trying to scan using the airport wireless router. Plugging it in did the trick.

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.
