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.

Can I scan a negative 4X5 black\white to make a photo

In general, yes, you can scan a negative and make a photo from it. I don't really know your model scanner, my Canon 8400f has a film adapter and a light in the cover, but would have to scan a 4x5 in sections and I would have to piece it together after scanning.
The results I get from scanning negs are very good, as good as I ever got in my darkroom.

Scan gear internal error occured code: 5,202,52

TO ANYONE READING THIS...I nearly took a hammer and smashed my Canon LIDE 110 Scanner cause I was so mad that it gave me this stupid error (5,202,52) no matter where I was connecting it and I thought it was done...

THEN I just took another USB Cable (Like I have around 10 different USB Cables) ...AND IT WORKED! Try several USB cables before you give up on it...also don't start messing around with drivers and stuff, you could end up screwing up your system like I did...

I hope this helps someone out there in the future with error 5,202,52 or 5,202,54, etc.

Try at least 4-5 different USB cables before anything else..

(If you want to know, I successfully used the USB cable with one of the fat black circle things on it (I think its for power or something), not just a straight usb cable. It's still a 5 pin USB cable however (Regular USB on one side, small 5 pin connecter on the other side))

Canon 8800f - black space - positive slide

There is actually an issu with those series of scanners. Did you upgrade your driver ont the canon website? I had same issue, never get rid of it and change to Epson. I did scan 50 000 of slides in my career. I found at some point that some of bigger window slide where not recogninze while smaller window ones where almost okay. Try changing the sides of the slide in the holder to get better cropping in some situations... Let us know!

Receive "cannot scan because the original may not be set correct.

Is your Scanner locked ? If yes then you will see there's a solid plastic backing on the inside of the lid that needed to be removed. Also remove all protective plastic too.

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?

Won't scan - says not enough disk space.

I had the same problem. Solved it by going into the "CanoScan Toolbox" - "Settings" - and pressing the "Defaults" button in that panel - and then "OK" button. Afterwards everything worked fine. Hope this helps you.

Error message

Hi toolpusher

Try going to CanoScan Toolbox > Settings and reset the 'defaults' button at bottom... this will restore factory settings and hopefully fix your problem... The other error message you can expect to get is "unable to scan - insufficent memory, check your **** space' (or something similar)... same fix works for both! ...Have had both messages on mine, sounds like a semi-regular conflict on some sort, but seems to be easily fixed. Good luck :-)
