SOURCE: No communication between computer and scanner

For interim jams like you mentioned, pull the power cord out of the scanner, close the scanner up, restart your computer, then plug the power cord back in and open up your scanner. Hopefully you will be back to scanning.

I am having a similar problem, but there nothing works permanently. My ScanSnap stopped communicating with the computer, reboots etc, don't work. An interim solution that worked was to reset the computer to an earlier configuration. That worked great for about 20 scans. Then it stopped communicating again. You can tell because the icon-tray changes to an S with a slash through it, and the power light no longer illuminates.

I have tried every uninstall, reinstall, etc. that I can think of. I would like to try to find the registry items and try to fix it there. In any case, if you have an updated answer, I am eager to hear it.

SOURCE: My Fujitsu ScanSnap S510 only flashes 5 blue lights

I got off the phone with Fujitsu and i was told you need to make sure that the ScanSnap Icon is in the system tray without a Red Line cross through it, so if it is not in your system tray start the snap scan program, if it's disabled re-enable it and you should be good.

ok, for scansnap software, you have to first install the software before you connect the scansnap. so since it was there before and probably got corrupted (deleted incorrectly), first uninstall it completely. then, reinstall software. and just as stated on their site here, Imaging devices are one of the most tempermental installations for computers, and there is usually a very specific order and method to installing them. post back for a followup.

Scansnap hardware error 0x00048004


I had this exact same problem. Turned out that I was using the wrong power adapter. Enough power to turn on the scanner lights and connect to the computer, but not enough to actually perform a scan. As soon as I realized I was using the wrong power cord, I switched it up and voila!

Scan snap won't work


This is a known problem with Fujitsu ScanSnaps. Some units experience the "blue button of death" meaning they no longer respond to waking the driver up when you press the blue button. Customer service is aware of the problem and if you are under warranty you should be able to get a new unit.

I had a similar problem. All I did was unplug the USB cable from the scanner and reattach it. Sometimes I would have to close scansnap (blue "S" icon in the sys tray at the bottom right), and then power on the scanner.

My scanner keeps flashing and not pulling the paper through, I cannot seem to figure out why it will not scan. It does this quite often, what is the problem that is causing this? Scansnap S1500


Go to msconfig or if you have a registry cleaner, go to the startup menu. Disable and ssmgr (scansnap manager in pfu). Reboot. Open the ScanSnap 1500 and then start the ScanSnap manager. The scanner is now ready to scan.

My Scan Snap won't scan. The Scan light just blinks and nothing happens.


My Scansnap was being used through a USB powered hub.

This worked....Shutdown EVERYTHING and unplug computer from your powerstrip for 10 seconds (or just turn off your powerstrip for 10 seconds) It resets the BUS power. This solved why almost all of my USB devices stopped working or were behaving badly.
