CanoScan 4200F Stuck

Out of nowhere while scanning, the scanner gets stuck and makes a weird noise (it won't go back to the original position). I thought at first it might be because of the lock switch thing, but that's not it.

I think the answer might be resetting it, but I don't know how to.

Unless you're scanning heavy items such as books that would put enough pressure down to prevent the scanning head from unit, then I think you need service.

Make sure if your scanning documents that the white plastic shield is on and if your scanning film this need to be removed. Make sure you also selected the proper item that you are scanning.

First, try unplugging and re-seating the USB cable in your computer. I am assuming your scanner is not making any noise when you first turn on the computer. If that is not the case, respond back with more information. This is the most common solution to this problem with these scanners though.

Canoscan 4200f Problem with Vista 32 bit


I got mine working after experiencing the same problem.

I had mine hooked up to a USB hub, after I hooked it directly to the USB ports in the back of my computer, everything just worked fine.

Weird that it worked on the USB hub on XP and not vista though.

CanoScan 5000F - Scanner bar is stuck


hi all;
i fixed it by taking the thing apart, pushing the scanner head (the block that is stuck-- that normally moves) back to the starting position. Make sure its snug at the end, a little bit off and you'll be putting it have to take it apart and back together a second time. There's a mirco swtich in there somewhere, and you need to make sure its pressed...
reconstruct, and hey presto, a working scanner! this also worked for my epson 1250 that got stuck once.
Easy as a section of gateaux.
