Maybe there is a problem in the scanner driver they use the same spooler. Try to uninstall the printer and scanner driver. Re install first the scanner before the printer

Rebooting the PC will restart the Print Spooler service, if this isn't an option go to:

Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Services find Print Spooler in the list and right click and select Stop then right clikc and select Start

I have this problem on my Canon MP210 Scanner that doesn't work! I even re-installed the driver, but nothing worked but the copier works. That mean that the hardware works correctly.


First try a different data cable and a different port. If you use a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection. Check that a known working device can connect to the computer. Check the device manager and power saving settings. What message do you see in the Devices and Printers window (Printers and Faxes for Win XP) for the MP210? What error messages do you for printing and scanning?

For Windows 7, Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager. Look for a triangle with a yellow exclamation point or a red x at the bottom of the list at Universal Serial Bus Controllers. You can try updating the drivers for the USB controller or uninstalling them and then rebooting the machine. (The computer should find and install new drivers automatically. However, you should also check in Windows Update for them (check for new updates - optional and important).) With some computers this could be the result of static at the USB ports. Disconnect all of the external devices and the power cord (computer and the outlet). For a laptop, also remove the battery. Then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then put the battery back in (if applicable) and reconnect all of your cables.

For the power savings settings, again for Windows 7, right click on the desktop (anywhere there are no icons or running programs). Select Personalize. Then click on Screen Saver then choose Change Plan Settings. Next click on Change Plan Settings (for the active plan). Then click on Advanced Plan Settings. Scroll down to USB selective suspend.

Did you install the Canon driver, full software or the OS driver? Can you print any documents? (Sometimes the scanner will not respond but the printer still works.) If you have documents in the print spooler, you may need to stop and restart the spooler. (One way to do this is to launch the Command Prompt window (run as administrator for Vista or Windows 7). Start > All Programs > Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and choose Run As Administrator. Type "net stop spooler" without the quotes followed by enter. On the next line, type "net start spooler" again without the quotes and press enter. Now restart the computer.

If the printer works, but the scan buttons do not. If you connected the USB cable before installing the Canon driver, you have a generic driver that may not run the scanner. Uninstall the driver, unplug the data cable and then reboot the computer. Then install the full featured software (if available) from Canon http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp210?selectedName=Specifications#DriversAndSoftware . Next try to scan from the computer. You need to set up the full software with destinations for the scanner buttons and the monitoring program must be running. (If you use the basic driver, the scan buttons will not work. In Windows XP, Vista or 7, you can acquire scans with Paint. File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan. Vista comes with Photo Gallery that can also do this (it can be downloaded for XP and Win7). Vista and Windows 7 also include Windows Fax and Scan to acquire scans.

If the unit still fails to work at the current computer, try connecting it to another (with known working USB ports). If it still fails, then the USB port has failed in the all-in-one. This could be another static issue. With the printer on, unplug the cables (data and power from the printer, outlet and the computer). Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to a minute. If this doesn't help, if the printer is under warranty ask Canon to repair it.

I hope this helps.

Cannot connect my printer to my computer


This came right off of the lexmart site

Attention Windows Vista Users: Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.
