Question about Canon CanoScan 3000F Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Scanner comes on automatically at computer startup

I've had this scanner for 3 years but all of a sudden, the scanner comes on at computer startup and tries over and over to scan something. Impossible to stop it. I don't see it in the computer's startup menu.
Any ideas on how to stop this annoying auto-startup? Thanks, JOHN

I would suspect that you have something else attached to your computer that is causing the scanner to react.

Disconnect the USB cable from the scanner and restart the computer. After the computer has fully restarted, connect the USB cable to the scanner. The scanner may initialize at this point. If after 30 seconds the scanner continues to cycle as you described, the that is an indication that there is something that is actively pinging the USB ports causing the scanner to react. If the scanner doesn't continue cycling, then reboot the computer and see if it does it again upon bootup.

Assuming that the scanner continues recycling:
Disconnect all USB devices (except the scanner) from the computer and then restart. If the problem goes away, then one of those devices is the culprit. Connect them one at a time, rebooting each time, to determine which devices is causing the problem. Once you determine the cause, then you'll know where to go for help.

Hope this helps.
