Question about Printers & Copiers

2 Answers

I cannot get my PIXMA MP140 to scan anything. I've tried re-installing the software and downloading the latest drivers. Nothing helps. It prints just fine. I get the following message each time I try: "Cannot communicate with scanner. Cable maybe disconnected or scanner turned off.Check status. Scanner driver will be closed. Code:2, 155, 0" Cable is connected and it is turned on....

    thanks JOHNNY2hotty,

    After posting my problem I figured out how to fix it myself. I had downloaded the latest drivers and installing them didn't seem to help until I unplugged all my USB devices un-installed and then reinstalled the latest drivers I'd downloaded. Then it was 'game on". Works beautifully now even with all USB devices plugged back in. Hope this helps some other hapless pilgrim.

For any pilgrims lost on the path, and trying to follow the map above, here is a major road not marked

- the actual link here takes you straight there! I couldn't get it from the canon website, I got it by searching for 'scangearmp-common'.

1. install alien Symaptic Package Managerunder System, Administration.
2. Go to HTTP://www.canon.com, Support and get the 4 required Linux Drivers. cuijfilter common and cuijfilter MP140 series, scangearmp common and scangearmp 140 series drivers. Download them to your desktop. Get the .rpm version only for this to work.
3. These files are in the .rpm format and they need to be converted to .deb.
4. use the terminal window. cd ~/Desktop. That will put you in the desktop.
5. Convert the files to .deb by using sudo alien --scripts scangearmp-common-1.10-1.i386.rpm and sudo alien --scripts cuijfilter-common-2.80-0.i386.rpm. These are only examples and you need to be exact or it will not work.
6. Double Click the .deb files and they will be installed. Install the common files first then the 140 series next.
7. Reboot the computer and the scanner will show up in the GIMP Image Editor, File, Qcquire, Scangearmp.
8. You then need to go to System, Administration, Printing and configure the MP 145. It is called the MP 140 series and Make and model is a Canon PIXMA MP150 CUPS ..........

Hi I have a Windows 7 (64 Bit) laptop and im


Please check the driver weather its support Win 7 64-bit or not, because Win7 have 2 varians 32-bit and 64-bit. If its not support 64-bit windows, you can download new driver but must be compatible with 64-bit system. Even if its the latest version of driver, but not support 64-bit system it won't be work.
You can download driver from here :

http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010891.asp

or here :
http://driverscollection.com/?H=PIXMA%20MG6150&By=Canon (choose Windows 7 64-bit).

Uninstall the driver from your PC then reinstall with the new driver.
Hope this help.
