Have you loaded the scanner driver software on your PC? Is the printer connected to the PC using a known good cable plugged into the proper receptacles? Is the scanner plugged into a known good power source? Is the scanner turned on? If you use one of the USB ports, your PC should automatically display NEW HARDWARE FOUND on your screen, and willl then ask if you want to install it using the SCANNER AND CAMERA INSTALLATION WIZARD.. You can also left click mouse on WINDOWS START, left click on CONTROL PANEL, and left click on the SCANNERS AND CAMERAS ICON. A new window should appear. Follow the instructions on this SCANNERS AND CAMERAS window, and you should be able to get your scanner working.

Neat scanner not working since upgraded to Mavericks.


I'm using a software called VueScan, which works with lots of scanners without original driver installations. Maybe try it?

My Epson CX3900 prints fine. It's when I try to open Epson scan that I get an error message "Cannot properly communicate with scanner"


if the unit is directly connected via USB, another program or prev installed scanner software is using "the path" to communicate with the scanner. Can only use one scanner at a time with windows.

Hi, I have brand new Canon MP140 3 in 1. I am getting the error message &cannot communicate with scanner. Cable may be disconnected or scanner may be turned off. Check status. scanner driver will be...


1. If you are connected correctly (via a USB cable), first be certain that the cable is snug on both sides (PC and Canon MP140).

2. If still a problem, remove the Canon MP140 icon from Printers and Faxes.

3. Then, disconnect the USB cable.

4. Restart your PC and log into Windows.

5. Connect the USB cable.

6. The PC should recognize the Canon MP130 and ask for a driver.

7. Install the driver.

If #6 does not happen, your USB cable could be faulty or may be a problem with USB port or your Canon. Move USB cable to a different USB port on the PC. Replace the USB cable. Try to install the Canon on a different PC to test.

Hope this helps.

Canon mp610 scanning problem


The readme says that some USB hubs have an issue.

I was having problems and was connected via a hub. I removed the hub and connected the printer directly to the back of the PC and voila scanning is all good.

Epson 3490 Scanner not communicating properly with PC


The new PC was Vista and the CD that came with the scanner completed loading a driver without complaint. However, a new driver was needed for Vista. After downloading the new driver from Epson, uninstalling the old driver and installing the new driver, it worked.

SuperPen (Wizcom) does not Communicate with PC


Just bought the pen and I've got the same problem. I've tried 2 PCs, one with XP SP2 and the other Vista (using Vista driver from Wizcom). Both give me the same "cannot communicate with Pen" error message. I've double checked every recommendation I could find on Wizcom's website and the internet, but looks like either the cable or pen is faulty. Would be good to know if the new cable they're sending you fixes the problem.
