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 .

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.

My scan button does nothing. How can I scan?


Hello,

When you press the "scan" button on the lexmark, the scanner is trying to connect to a specific software program that in this case you may not have installed.

You will want to try to test the scanner driver directly.
For windows XP and Vista, try the following.

1. Open your start menu
2. Select Control Panel
3. Select "scanners and cameras"
NOTE: for windows Vista, make sure you are in "classic view" to see scanners and cameras.
4. Check whether there is the lexmark listed in this window.

For windows 7, you will need to do something a little different.

1. Open your start menu
2. go to All programs
3. Open "windows Fax and scan"
4. Click on "new scan".
5. Check whether there is the lexmark listed in this window.

If there is no lexmark, you need to check the lexmark website for drivers. If the lexmark is there, try double clicking the icon to run the scan wizard.

Thanks,

Pat

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.

Not printing or scanning at high resolution


If the Lexmark software doesn't work you could just try using other software. Picasa http://picasa.google.com is a free photo management software and does a great job of printing photos. You can scan from an application like Word or using the "Get Picture using Scanner Wizard" menu that shows up when you right click the Scanner in My Computer in Windows.
