To open the Canoscan 8600 to clean the inside of the glass: Gently pry off the silver "c-shaped" trim piece on the front of the scanner. Slide the silver trim pieces on each side of the scanner forward and remove them. Gently pry off the remaining black trim piece on the front of the unit. This exposes 3 phillips head screws at the front of the scanner. Remove them.Pull straight up on the rear lid of scanner (where the 2 hinges are) to remove the top. This exposes 2 screws at the bottoms of the wells that secure the hinges. Remove them.Now the top is held by only 2 clips - 1 on each side.Pull up gently on the left side of the panel, front and back, and slide the panel back towards the rear. That should free the clip.Repeat for the right side.Take it easy, and you won't break anything.
Normaly Red Green or Blue lines appear because of Dust in the CCD or due to electronics Failure. If this problem had happened after some SW changes then Try connecting the Scanner to a different Machine.
Hello, I believe that what you are having a power issue on the USB port. This port is limited to a certain total amount of power and if you are using other devices on the usb ports they each take away from the total amount available for use. The fix for this issue would be for you to buy a Powered USB Hub, as it has a transformer that plugs into the wall and will avoid using any of the computer's usb power to run the scanner.
I was surprised by the same problem this morning. First time I've had a problem with in years. Checked the lock... it was already unlocked. I solved the problem by unhooking the USB cable from the hub, restarting my Mac (seems to be the key), replugging the cable and restarting the scanner. Worked like a charm. Hope it works for you!

Canoscan FB630U - No need to buy 'VueScan' - that does work but $70 is a long way towards a new scanner.
I've had no problems using the XP canon driver (v. 22.214.171.124) under vista (just download, decompress then 'Update driver' in the device manager and point it to the decompressed files).
This is a TWAIN driver not the newer WIA type driver which means that the scanner will not appear in Windows Fax and Scan or in the the Scanners and Cameras group of control panel. Photoshop / Paintshop pro etc are perfectly happy to use TWAIN scanners, however!
i fixed it by taking the thing apart, pushing the scanner head (the block that is stuck-- that normally moves) back to the starting position. Make sure its snug at the end, a little bit off and you'll be putting it have to take it apart and back together a second time. There's a mirco swtich in there somewhere, and you need to make sure its pressed...
reconstruct, and hey presto, a working scanner!
this also worked for my epson 1250 that got stuck once.
Easy as a section of gateaux.
