Canoscan 8800f error code 2,250,0

I have done everything I can think of, but I continue to get this error code 2,250,0 when I try to scan something. I have uninstalled and installed the driver 3 times (from CD and also the canon support site). I've unplugged and plugged the usb port, power cord. I've followed the quick start guide to the letter. Please help!!!

    I have the exact same problem. The scanner had been working fine, but the last time I tried to use it I got the 2,250,0 error (which Canon tech support tells me means the PC cannot talk to the scanner). I took the MP970 to a Canon authorized service center; they verified that there is nothing wrong with the unit, so it has to be something in the PC that is interfering with the scanner communication.

    None of these solutions worked.
    The scanner shows up in device manager like it should.
    I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times. Even on a completely different computer it gives the same "2,250,0" error.
    Canon support has hardly been helpful... telling me that reinstalling my drivers should solve the problem.


In my case, I eventually found that there were a couple of files still in my PC from a printer that I used to use, but no longer have. When I "removed" the old printer, apparently a few files were not deleted by the uninstall program; those files caused a conflict with the Canon printer ... once I removed the old files, the Canon scanned just fine.

So - searching for any files with the name or model of any old printers you may have once used and removing them just might resolve your problem.

How to scan negatives?

You will need to check your Canon software that came with your Pixma MX310. I have a stand alone Canon Canoscan 8800F scanner that have the capability to scan 35mm film strip and 35mm mounted slide, the software included the feature for it.

Scanning 35mm Slides - getting a pink hue when loaded into Picasa

The whitest white there is is the reflective white on the underside of a scanner tray. Get 2-4 pages of regular office paper and put them between your slides and the scanner lid. That should at least be better. If still not acceptable, try a flat (as in matte, not two-dimensional), white piece of thin cardboard instead of the paper.
Try it and you'll see where I'm going. Does your printer/scanner come with any photo adjustment features in its software?

Canoscan 8800f error as ''cannot connect with scanner''

I had the same problem with a new canoscan 8800f. I found by connecting the scanner USB lead to a USB 1 .1 port instead of a USB 2.0 port the problem seems to have been was solved. I was fortunate to have both. Originally it was just USB 1.1 ports on my PC, but I added USB 2.0. I don't know how you solve the problem if you only have 2.0 ports.

CanoScan Scanner can not complete a scan

Double-check all connections and try another port if possible. There may also be damage to cables or pins. Do you have another cable to try? Do other devices work in the same port?
