Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 30 Flatbed Scanner
Hi, when I plug my scanner into the USB port the head moves to the start position, it looks like it's doing some sort of calibration or something and then it slowly scans the whole bed (white flickering light) and it tries to go further than it can such that the motor/belt then starts clicking. I seem to have no control over this from my PC as the driver looks like it is waiting for the scanner to report that it is ready. I updated the driver to 126.96.36.199 to no effect.
This happened to me with the LiDE30, and I found that this will happen if the scanner is plugged into a usb hub that sits between the scanner and the computer. Try plugging directly into the computer and see if that helps.

There is rust on the roller rod please open it and oil the rod and wipe it with clean cotton.
