The scanner has quit working. Error message says printer cannot connect. Printing works find from computer. Copying too.


Switch off the scanner and disconnect the usb cable then restart your computer.

When the computer has booted up, reconnect the scanner usb. Try the scanner.

If the problem persists try re-downloading and installing the scanner software

Many printers will not scan over a network, even when they are supposed to. Try connect to it with a standard USB cable and scan to PC directly. If that doesn't work - you have probably got a faulty scanner.

If the scanner works OK directly to a printer, then your issue is either LAN/WLAN bandwidth or an unstable IP address. Try fixing the IP Address rather than running DHCP address allocation eg set it at 192.168.x.150 where x is the range value for your network. Then set the printer port address on your devices to the same values and try again.

Regarding the Cannon scanner error 2145,50. The MG5220 does this also. The actual problem is that the scanner will not communicate with the computer correctly if it is connected through a USB hub. A direct connection to the computer cures it, for me at least.
I know, I had that problem. I am a retired electronics design engineer.

Error message


What is your operating system?

If XP, check your device manager to see if the scanner is being recognized by XP.

What is your scanning software?
Try to use another scan program ( a free demo version should work fine.)

Are you using TWAIN or an ISIS driver? If it is a TWAIN driver, then any Photo editing program should be able to connect ( usuallly!?).
