Hello!
Changing the Drum does not affect the scanner settings.
You can print because your PC (computer) can see your machine but for scanner is the oposit. The machine must see your PC.
I think that in this machine you have an SD card with the scanner funtion. Try to take it off and then put it on again. (the SD card is on its side. In the controller box)

If you still have any doubt reply to me.

Regarding the Cannon scanner error 2145,50. I note you have tried to fix this, but failed. The actual problem is that the scanner will not communicate with the computer correctly if it is connected through a USB hub. A direct connection to the computer cures it.
I know, I had that problem. I am a retired elctronics design engineer.

Canon mp610 scanning problem


The readme says that some USB hubs have an issue.

I was having problems and was connected via a hub. I removed the hub and connected the printer directly to the back of the PC and voila scanning is all good.
