There are a few things you can try here
1)Un-install the printer from device manager and then remove any associated software from the control panel. Download the driver from the link below and re-install it
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=116&modelid=15402#DownloadDetailAct
and see if it resolves the issue.
2) When you press the scan button on the printer do you see the scanning LED move down the surface of the glass. If yes then is it lighting up?
Please answer this question so that we can decide what to do next.

Hello, The scanner & photocopier were not working and the screen was just stuck on the "scanner bulb warming up". Then, after days of trouble shooting, it finally began making a noise,...


From what you described it sounds like you need to get the "scanner assembly" replaced.
The bulb is probably bad and won't come on to full power.
Not knowing what kind of printer you have, probably won't change the fix. If you can look at the event log you may be able to see an error code which could make it a definite scanner assembly replacement.
If you want to throw money at this unknown printer, get a tech to look at it and give you an estimate.

Scanner function does not appear to work. All


i would say possibly you are missing out on something..because if the other functions particularly photocopying are working then this should work..as in if the photocopying function works then the scanner is ok cause basically in photocopying the machine scans then prints... perhaps check whether you are correctly following procedure to scan..most hp all in ones have a button on them that you press and it automatically initiates scanning and simultaneously the software on the pc is initiated..try this,if not then try reinstalling the hp software..hope this helps..regards

Printer/scanner/photocopier. scanner not working. Any ideas?


Are you scanning to your computer? If you are getting an error during the transfer to your computer, check your firewall. I had a scanner (mine is a Panasonic) problem with the transfer to my computer. I corrected it by printing the properties of the scanner and found out the port number that the scanner used and opened the port in the firewall. Hope it helps.

All in one printer, scanner and photocopier wont work?


Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Photocopies are very faint on one side


The scanner mirrors are dirty.
You can try doing a shading adjustment . You press menu #1934 to enter tech mode. Then in menus under maintenance go to shading adjustment, place 5 sheets of paper on the glass and run the shading adjustment. That may help.
But the problem is the mirrors are hazy and in need of cleaning. The rear, both side covers must be removed. Then 2 screws on the back of the scanner must be removed , and the connectors unpluged from the main board. There is also one green ground wire that is attached to the frame from the scanner.
Once the scanner is removed, you have I believe 4 screws to remove and the controle panel.
You have to be very careful opening the scan head under the lamp. It is just held together with plastic tabs. Under the lamp are the mirror and lens, that must be cleaned to get your copy quality back to mormal

Hp psc 1210 all-in-one the scanner is not working


These "Experts" are ****! Thanks to Yahoo Answers I found a VERY simple solution which I had totally overlooked!! Don't uninstall / reinstall printer drivers before checking in your control panel under "Scanners and Cameras"! Make sure that your device is listed and the "Scanner and Camera Wizard" will take it from there. Next time I will go straight to Yahoo instead of this lame excuse for a "tech" site!

Hp 1317 psc


you didn't describe your problem briefly. 1. Check if you photocopy anything, it is coming out correctly you are doing. it means your scanner is perfectly allright. 2. if you are not able to photocopy with this printer, it means your scanner is not working properly. But if it photocopying properly and in windows it is not scanning it means software is not working properly, try to arrange new software from anywhere and try.
