Well I had a code 15 error with mine LIDE 20. Apparently the scanner needs a certain amount of power to run off the USB port. So I changed the USB port and problem fixed

you have to run wire from you main router to the switch and put it in the in port. then you can plug in your computers from there. now if you have anew er one and it is wire less you still will hav to run a wire to the router. unless you get a repeter then all you have to do is log onto your routher and then use it like your main router

Do a "reset".
•Go into the CanoScan toolbox,
•click Settings,
•click the Defaults button on the bottom
•then click OK.
It will take a few seconds to reset and you should be good to go.

Unfortunately, that's normal for this particular model. If you read the manual, or in this case the Quickstart Guide, you'll note that the top left corner is meant to go into the arrow corner. I'm annoyed with it too. You can always do it in Post-processing by doing two "turn image 90 degrees". If there would be a setting, it would be in the scanning program as the driver for this scanner has no settings available; you would have to check to see if there's a 'reverse image' setting in the program, though I doubt it.

Please follow below steps .

  1. First, open the "Task Manager" by pressing Ctrl-Shift-Esc.
  2. Then click on the "Services" tab and look for the stisvc service, that is, "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)".
  3. Look at the "PID" column and get the id of the related process.
  4. Then go to the "Details" tab and look for the process with that id, which will be one out of the svchost.exe processes.
  5. Click on that process by the right mouse button and select "End task".
  6. Then go back to the "Services" tab and restart the WIA service by right-clicking on stisvc and selecting "Restart".
Hope it helps and my solution is helpful !

They will be available on canon's web site. If not, it is not a compatible OS.

Power down the scanner and unplug the USB from your computer. Plug the USB back in and turn power back on. Occasionally USB connections lose their minds and quit working.
Good luck.

As a quick fix, if I could see it on the screen, it should be possible to save it to the drive taking note of what name you saved it as. If you then drag and drop the file onto your opened email, it should attach to the email. If it doesn't, you should be able to drill down to where the file is on the drive via the paperclip symbol.

If the screen scan saves only as one page at a time, hopefully you can save each page as a PDF or convert what you do save to PDF. CutePDF or PrimoPdf may offer a driver for the conversion. There is a program called PDF binder (freeware) that does a great job of welding several pages into one file. Possibly the freeware program File Minimizer might reduce the file size. Yes, this is a time consuming work around but it gives you an option.

I doubtlessly have cracked up some other helpers with this convoluted method but at least you have my "bear claws and stone tools" method.

The folder for saving temporary files must exist, and it might not by default. In MP Navigator EX check "Use the scanner driver" and then click "Open Scanner Driver". In the scanner driver window, click "Preferences" in the lower right. On the Scanner tab/page, set "Select Folder Where Temporary Files are Saved" to a place which exists

There does not seem to be a twain driver for Win7, but try this site:

If you believe the scanner is still functional it is possible it won't operate with Windows 7. I have a laser printer like that and no updated drivers are available and in spite of using the Windows Compatibility function the printer is now useless.

You could try uninstalling the scanner driver and restarting the computer and then when you reconnect your scanner a "found new hardware" wizard should appear which can search the internet for a suitable driver.

You could also try using the Windows Compatibility function that in theory allows earlier software to be used - mostly unsuccessfully in my experience.
