Im using Windows XP and when I print anything without scanning my Lexmark printer works perfectly but when I scan something with my CanoScan N640P the whole back ground prints black instead of remaining white.

    Lift up on the scanner cover and tell me what color the backing for the cover is?

    This would be the part of the cover that sits on the scanner glass when scanning.

There could be a setting in your scanner drivers to fix that. It would be under background settings.

The other thing you can do is preview the document first and select the area you want to scan. Then press the scan button again. That way the black background that isn't needed will not print.

How can I get Canon CanoScan N640P ex Flatbed Scanner to work in Windows 7?


Hi Nubi ,
There is no direct solution since Canon doesn't support your device under Windows 7 .
You can install a virtual version of Xp on your machine with http://download.cnet.com/VMware-Player/3000-2094_4-10470784.html or via Microsoft if you are using Ultimate or Professional .
Otherwise , you will need to purchase a replacement device compatible with Windows 7 .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

I hab Bought one USB-to-Parallel connector to connect my Canon Scanner .But I cannot able to scan .It displays Error Code 0*00070800. No scanners detected My Scanner mobel No :Canon N640P ex


I have many years of experince repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion.

First off I would go back to USB its faster then a parallel cable for scanning purposes. Second if your computer is a very old one then just get a usb card and install it in to your computer. Also make sure you have the latest drivers for the operating system your running. The drivers are free on Canons website. Just google Canon Canoscan N640P drivers it should take you directly to Canon's website also I would download capture perfect its free also an will function perfectly with your scanner.

When you install the newest drivers make sure your scanner is disconnected from your computer. Once the drivers are installed then attach the USB cable to your computer. You should get a message saying new drivers are being installed then reboot your computer and you should be good to go with whatever you want to scan.

I hope this helps you out.

Error code 0x24050010 Canon scan N640P in windows 7. please please help me...


What you need to do is run the driver setup in windows XP compatibility mode.
Right click on the setup icon, select properties, compatibilities tab then select Windows XP SP3 (or some older version of Windows.
Then left click on the "Change settings for all users" button and from the new window select again XP service pack 3 compatibility and check the "Run this program as an administrator". Click OK and then run the setup application.
It worked for me on Windows 7 ultimate.

No scanner detected on N640P ex scanner


I was recently faced with this same problem, with non detection of the scanner N640P ex flatbed. It has a card for the parallel port connection and was installed by a computer repairer to save me time. He said it worked, but when I got it home, it failed, even with the new driver added.
Here is what I did.
Check the ports in which are used for the scanner, mine was found to be LPT2, I changed that to LPT1.
(Be prepared to reverse these 2 if necessary).
I did a reboot and turned on the scanner and it showed it was there but refused to bring up the Toolbox to scan anything.
Next step, go the Microsoft and pick up this "Restore parVdm" this belongs in Windows System 32 and aids in the recognition of not only your scanner but other vital peripherals.
Its a microsoft fail when the parVdm does not recognise something.
I installed that as it comes down in .rar file, and rebooted, and all is working exceptionally well.
Will this work with any other OS? I have no idea. This worked for me on XP SP3 but parVdm also exists in Windows 7, 8 and Vista.
