Canoscan 4200f clicking noise when turned on

My scanner was working fine until- after trying to scan a page of a book it refused to scan and makes a continuous clicking noise - rather like a gear box out of sync. I would like to strip it down as I think something has stuck and needs freeing. Am not sure how to get the cover off - alternatively I need to know where the nearest service department is - I live in Sheffield South Yorkshire
thanks for your advice - in anticipation

    yes, my scanner is making this loud clicking noise after the preview is complete. I hope to scan slides and pictures into a powerpoint, but the scanner stopped working correctly after 9 slides.

Make sure if your scanning documents that the white plastic shield is on and if your scanning film this need to be removed. Make sure you also selected the proper item that you are scanning.

Film scaning options are missed in Select Source


I had the same problem. My solution is: "Just go to settings on Canoscan Toolbox. Then go to copy button, drop down and select scan2. This comes "Copy" as default setting. Change it to scan2. Click ok. On Canoscan toolbox main interface click scan2 and bingo, you'll see film option on select source . Hope this works

I have a 4200F scanner. I am scanning a scrap book page, which use to take a couple of minutes now is ten minutes or more before a picture appears on the screen. A tech earlier today said to plug the USB...


I had a similar problem - I fixed it by connecting direct to a USB 2.0 port rather than going through an old hub, which is maybe what the tech meant. I take it you haven't accidentally set the res too high?

First, try unplugging and re-seating the USB cable in your computer. I am assuming your scanner is not making any noise when you first turn on the computer. If that is not the case, respond back with more information. This is the most common solution to this problem with these scanners though.

CanoScan 4200F Stuck


Unless you're scanning heavy items such as books that would put enough pressure down to prevent the scanning head from unit, then I think you need service.

Canoscan 4200f Problem with Vista 32 bit


I got mine working after experiencing the same problem.

I had mine hooked up to a USB hub, after I hooked it directly to the USB ports in the back of my computer, everything just worked fine.

Weird that it worked on the USB hub on XP and not vista though.

Cannon scan 4200f light stays on


There is a lamp shut-off time adjustment in ScanGear. Go into ScanGear's Advance Mode and click Preferences. One of the four tabs will have an option for Lamp Shut-Off time. Set it as desired.
