SOURCE: Scanner won't communicate with computer

Try this,

Go to Control Panel >> Device Manager, look for the scanner in 'Device Manager' under 'Imaging Devices'
Right click on it and select 'Uninstall' and allow it to be uninstalled.
Remove the USB lead from the scanner.
Re-boot the Computer.
Once windows appears and is ready toi use, re-connect the scanner USB lead.
Windows should re-install the drivers and tell you the scanner is ready to use................hopefully!

SOURCE: scanner locked

There is a scanner lock "lever" on the machine. It is located in the dark grey area where the paper comes out. Look for a light green lever and pull it towards you (not down, just forward).

Then turn off your machine and pull out the power for 30 seconds. When you reconnect and power up the printer, hopefully the error will be gone.

Regarding the Cannon scanner error 2145,50. The MG5220 does this also. The actual problem is that the scanner will not communicate with the computer correctly if it is connected through a USB hub. A direct connection to the computer cures it, for me at least.
I know, I had that problem. I am a retired electronics design engineer.

Canon Pixma MX850 won't scan - says 'set the pc to start scan'


Do you have more than one PC connected to the scanner? I have both a PC and a Mac connected to it, and I think my scanner is trying to connect to the Mac, which requires image capture software to be installed, rather than the PC. Don't know how to tell it to go to the PC, though...
