Lide 60 not working in mountain lion


Guide to installing Canon CanoScan LiDE 35, 50 and 60 on Mac OS X 10.8. Mountain Lion:


FIRST PART: DELETING OLD LiDE DRIVERS AND SOFTWARE


  • If this is the first attempt to install the scanner, skip this part


  • Trash the following files/folders from these folders:


HD:/Library/Image Capture/Twain Data Sources

delete the CanoScan CanoScan XXXX.ds file

(Make note of any other files that may be in this folder. If other files are present, move them to the desktop for now. Then place them back after successfully using the scanner.)


HD:/Library/Preferences

delete the 'CanoScan XXXX' folder


HD:/Users/Shared

delete the folders containing the name CanoScan, or starting with CNQL.


HD:/Applications

delete the CanoScan Toolbox Application


HD:/Users/YOUR-MAC-USERNAME/Library/Preferences

delete any items named "CanoScan Toolbox"


  • Restart your computer, then empty the trash


SECOND PART: MAKING YOUR SCANNER WORK


  • Make sure your scanner is well connected


  • Download the right driver depending on your Model. Also download the Scanner Software. Copy the filenames and search them via Google. Make sure you download the Canon files from an official Canon domain.


CanoScan LiDE 50 and LiDE 35 work both with the 35 driver:

lide35osx7721en.dmg


CanoScan LiDE 60 driver:

lide60osx11131en.dmg


VueScan Software:

http://www.hamrick.com/#download

VueScan 9.2 (or later) x32 for Mac OS X


Alternative to VueScan: CanoScan Toolbox. I prefer VueScan.

Try your luck with Version 4 or Version 5.

CanoScan Toolbox 4: cstbosx4934ej4.dmg

CanoScan Toolbox 5: cstbosx5014ej4.dmg


  • Open the downloaded driver file (lide35osx7721en.dmg or lide60osx11131en.dmg)


  • and Double-click the ScanGear file, install and restart when prompted


  • Open the downloaded VueScan file (vuex3292.dmg) and drag the VueScan application to the Mac Applications folder


  • Open the VueScan application. The scanner should be recognized automatically.


(Alternatively try and install CanoScan Toolbox 4 or 5)

I have a canonScan 8400F there's a connection with computer however when i open adobe photoshop there's no preview..


I have many years experience repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion for you.

I guess I have a couple of questions for you first. Does your computer recognize the scanner is attached to your computer? If so can you scan in any other program like Windows Paint? If you say yes to both of these then the problem is with configuring your adobe software. If you say no then we need to go back to basics. I would google Canon Canoscan 8400F Drivers, it should pull up a page that will take you to Canons official website. Download the latest drivers from Canon's official website,the drivers are dated and the ones towards the top should be the latest drivers. The drivers are free. Also while your there download the newest version of Capture Perfect its a utility program for scanning its free also but download the latest one. Now make sure your scanner is unplugged from your computer, the cable that goes from the scanner to the computer. Install the latest drivers on to your computer. Once they are installed, then with your scanner powered on attach the cable from the scanner to your computer. A window should pop up saying a new device (or drivers) is being installed. Once this completes reboot your scanner and you should be able to scan again.

I use Paint shop and in order for me to scan with my Canon scanner I need to go to aquire and image, from a scanner or camera, and then it controls the scanner and does the scanning for me.

I hope this helps you out.

CanoScan 8400F


Try this:

Open the CanoScan Toolbox.
Click the Save option.
Put a check in the box that states "Display the Scanner Driver".
Click Scan.
Click the Advanced Mode tab.
Make sure Select Source is set to "Platen".
Click the Preview button at the top left.
If the error still occurs, then most likely it will be a service issue.

One thing to check...see if the inside lamp illuminates when you turn the scanner on using the power button at the back left side of the scanner.
