SOURCE: Canon Scanner - Twain Pilot

QUICK ANSWER: use the original USB cable that came with the scanner.

LONG EXPLANATION:
Using Vista (32 bit version) and a Canon N670U scanner with the new drivers installed from the CanonUSA website. This driver is works for Canon scanners: LiDE 20, LiDE 30, N670U, N676U and N1240U, found at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=235&modelid=6625

Canon says it doesn't support Vista 64 bit version. I couldn't get the scanner to work and kept getting the TWAIN error also, despite uninstalling / reinstalling the driver. Finally, decided to disconnect my 3rd party 16 foot USB cable and use the original cable. I swear, it WORKED! I can't explain why, but it did. Perhaps there is increased resistance, hence reduced power going to the scanner by using longer/different USB cable? Anyhow, it worked...go figure. If you have the 64 bit version of Vista, I guess it won't work(?).

Try using the original USB cable that came with the scanner. I swear it worked for me, even though it doesn't make sense (although I suppose there is increased resistance, thus less power going to the scanner by using a longer and/or different USB cable than the one included). Give it a try.

SOURCE: TWAIN ERROR AND CANOSCAN LIDE 20 SCANNER PROBLEMS

Well I had a code 15 error with mine LIDE 20. Apparently the scanner needs a certain amount of power to run off the USB port. So I changed the USB port and problem fixed

Canon 8400F will not scan, error code 5, 155, 45


If it passes 'test' from the computer, then it should be listed in the Device Manager. Uninstall / Remove that device, then Restart and Re-install it.

First, make certain that the flatbed scanner lid is securely shut.
Second, unplug the power and USB cables from the rear of the scanner.
Third, deposit the Canon 8400F scanner in the nearest garbage receptacle where it belongs.

Twain Error


You will most likely find that the FAU (what the hell is FAU?!) cable that connects the lift-up lid to the lower part of the scanner has at least one of the eight wires within it fractured. This cable was made far too rigid to cope with the multiple number of times that you will be opening and closing the lid and it's a poor do from Canon that they allowed this to get through to production. I tried to obtain a replacement cable from the UK Canon service agents but was told, as expected, that it couldn't supply it. If you're a dab hand with small wires and a soldering iron, it's quite possible to make a repair and save a bit more of the world's resources from going in the dustbin and then buying another equally poorly made, expensive piece of ****, from China.

This is caused by a faulty FAU cable. One, or more, of the eight wires within this cable has fractured and unless you are handy with fine wires and a soldering iron, it's off to the scanner shop, I'm afraid.
