You have tried everything possible!. Try and reinstall the OS. If some dll files are corrupted, this will resolve it. You may have to reinstall all other software!

Canon 8400F will not scan, error code 5, 155, 45


If it passes 'test' from the computer, then it should be listed in the Device Manager. Uninstall / Remove that device, then Restart and Re-install it.

I have a Canon 8400F film printer/scanner


'Tain't necessary. And not getting the part can be an improvement.
I cut out a cardboard template that allows me to scan 10 slides rather than the 4 of Canon's official slide adapter.

All the Canon part does is position them precisely so cropping and rotation are automatic. With Photoshop skills (File ' Automate), you can do the same yourself for whatever size. I ended up doing Brownie, 35, and 126 (gasp!) also.

For extra credit, make your adapter(s) out of genuine plastic rather than whatever cereal box you have lying around.

The light on the lid, for scanning negatives won't move


You will most likely find that the FAU cable that connects the lift up lid part to the lower part of the scanner has at least one fractured wire within it. There are eight quite fine wires and the constant opening and closing of the lid has caused this to occur. Unless you have some micro-surgery skills and a small soldering iron it's off to the scanner shop, I'm afraid.

Check the cable that connects to the lid of the scanner. If it is disconnected, you won't get the Film options.

Selection menu doesn't give "color positive slide"


Check the cable connection to the lid of the scanner. If this is loose, then you will only get the "Platen" option in the drop down menu.
