PLEASE READ **CAREFULLY


Do you want to scan in a document or a picture?

If it is a picture, go to your photo program. Under FILE choose IMPORT then SCAN or TWAIN or your actual scanner (if it shows there.) Have your photo in the scanner ready to go and click on the above. This will scan the picture into your program and you can do any adjustments or cropping needed and "save as" where you want in your files.

A document can be a little more tricky because sometimes your existing document program( Word or whatever doesnt match the document format. However, on many scanners you can choose which program you want to open the document. If your document program will not open it, you can choose" word pad" and once it is there you can save it as an rft document then try opening again in your document proggy. There are many workarounds here to convert documents that didn't come from your program, but with a little patience it can be accomplished.

**Now that I have given you this information, I'll ask you. Do you have the scanner driver installed on your PC? If you do not you won;t be abl;e to scan anything onto your PC, however, you can go to the manufacturers site, click on support or downloads and download the correct driver for your scanner and operating system to your desktop. Be sure to turn off all running programs while you download and install. Once it is on your desktop it will be an exe file. Just click on it to install. Your scanner will then work with your PC and you can scan whatever you want using your programs to do it-picture or document. Good Luck to You.

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.

I have a Lexmark X4875 printer/scanner. I don't have the know-how to use the scanner. the printer is connected to my desk top and works fine but i don't know how to scan and save the image


Hi There and Welcome to Fixya.

Here's how to use the scanner for your Lexmark X4875 (Basic scanning) :
  • Ensure that both the computer and printer are connected and turned on
  • Load a document facedown on scanner glass
  • From the printer control panel press down or up arrow until "Scan" is highlighted
  • Press the "Action" button
For your convenience, I have included Lexmark's user guide through the below link:

Lexmark Manual

All in One Scanner/Printer problems


Go to this link and type "cannot communicate with scanner" in the search box. Click Search. Then select the "ERROR: Cannot communicate with scanner" link. You will see several things to try to correct your problem. Usually, this error shows up if there is another USB device connected which prevents the computer from "seeing" the scanner, even though it can print without problem. So do try to disconnect any other USB device (except mouse or keyboard) and reboot the system.
