Track down the twain driver for that scanner.. thats the box that opens when you scan... google for the company, download the driver.. re-install tadahh.
Still no luck? manually remove the old one.. use search to finfd the twain folder in your windows system (prob twain32) then re-install.
Still no luck? Scanner has died.

Driver mismatch - the driver of the scanner has forgotten the location of the TWAIN driver because another software has been using it lately. Follow this

Unable to scan


Hi Franklin_mus,

Thanks for your posting in FixYa.

It seems to be the problem of the Drivers and incomplete installation. Please uninstall the Scanner and do a complete installation step by step.

Let me know if you need any further assistance from me. Have a Nice day.

Unable to select TWAIN source


tried uninstallin and installin canon scanner drivers..nothing works..still seeing unable to select twian source..

so i tried an alternative..here we go..
on vista 64 os/vista any version..click Start>All programs>Windows fax and scan

next click new scan on top and that got me going.

some say there are issues with the way usb talks to old scanners with new operating systems like mine (vista 64). hope it helps until you find the actual cure.

For any device to work you need 'drivers'. It is difficult to find a driver for an old product with a new OS like vista. You can try to get drivers for XP or Win2000 and use them.

Canon Flatbed scanner model D646U ex for Windows XP


Could be a problem with the cables themselves. Try a new set or different set of cables and see if this resolves the issue. Also make sure that you installed the correct version of the driver for your OS.
Should you still have difficulties, try a clean boot as explained below:

(Just replace "camera" in the procedure for scanner.)

Lock Switch and IF cable


Mine was doing the same thing. When I get on the program, before I click "acquire" to preview and scan, I click OFF the toolbox and then everything seems to be okay and I can go ahead and scan.

Downloading software (Twain??)


The download website for your scanner is here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=8008

A TWAIN driver is simply a generic scanner software driver that your specific Canon software can hook into and use.

I recommend starting with this one and see if it installs the TWAIN driver you need:

"CanoScan Toolbox v2.2.3 for Windows 98/Me/2000/XP"
