Whichever program you wish.
MSPAINT comes with the operating system, so you may want to point it there until you get a better program like photoshop or corel photopaint.

Hello
Actually you do have to select a program for working with photographs such as Photoshop, or Adobe Elements, maybe Microsoft Paint or Picasa maybe. Then your scanner will scan and the pictures will be saved and they'll be opened in the photo program you have chosen afterwards.

You have to remove the white protective sheet from the the lid. Once you remove it you will be able to scan film. Also make sure the lock button is not in the lock position.

Open the Canoscan Toolbox.
Click the Save option.
Put a check in the box that states "Display the Scanner Driver".
Click Scan.
Click the Advanced Mode tab.
Make sure Select Source is set to "Platen".
Click the Preview button at the top left


Another thing is this can be caused by a faulty FAU cable. One or more of the eight wires within this cable has fractured

Adjusting the lamp


Hi,  This is normal for the 4200F and it's just the time taken to warm the scanning lamp up. Once it's warmed up it shouldn't need to go through the process again for any additional scans, unless it's had long enough to cool down again of course.
I've noticed from another answer to an earlier question that if it's a big problem you can change the following keys in your registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Canon\ScanGear\8.6\Devices\CNQ4200
 Energy save changed to 1
 Lamp Off Time changed to 0


Looks like this would prevent your lamp switching off at all unless you unplugged your scanner which would undoubtedtly shorten your bulb life. It may be a better idea to play about with the 'lamp off' key number until it just stays on long enough to not cause you problem.

Cheers, Derek

Canoscan 20


I had the same problem..the way to get around this is to open the toolbox and click "Save" instead of "Scan" After you do this you just create a file name and save it into a folder..also make sure you change the "save as type" to JPEG

CanoScan 4400 won't scan


Try disconnecting other USB devices to determine if it is being caused by some other device.

Error message 2-178-0. What does this mean.Changed drivers but no change in message?


Try this:

Open the CanoScan Toolbox.
Click the Save option.
Put a check in the box that states "Display the Scanner Driver".
Click Scan.
Click the Advanced Mode tab.
Make sure Select Source is set to "Platen".
Click the Preview button at the top left.
If the error still occurs, then most likely it will be a service issue.

One thing to check...see if the inside lamp illuminates when you turn the scanner on using the power button at the back left side of the scanner.

Which program do i use to transfer the scanned image too?


Hi,

Sounds like the CanoScan is looking for a photo enhancing/utility program. Programs for this purpose are Adobe PhotoShop, PaintShop Pro, ACDSee, or even the simple Windows Paint.

Additionally, the CanoScan Toolbox might have a basic photo utility program. Normally basic photo utility programs like this are included in the CD installer of a scanner, a digicam or even most color printers.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
