Question about Canon DR-2580C Path-Through Scanner

1 Answer

Error Message-- Error in shading position (-4431)

I recently purchased the Canon DR-2580C printer (used) and installed the latest drivers to my PC running XP Media Edition system software. The computer recognizes the scanner, initializes through both Photoshop and Acrobat using Twain. I receive proper dialog boxes until I actually select and click on "Scan". Immediately I get a Scanner Error messages "Error in Shading position (-4431)" It stops the scan process...and absent the original manual, I'm at a loss as to what to do to resolve this. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance for your help. Is there a place to puchase a User's guide or owners manual for this scanner? That would be helpful too.

    I also have the same problem. I already tried to turn off the scanner and turn it on again with no success. I also noticed that my scanner's LED keeps on blinking.

The issue at hand here is a sensor error. Cut the power to the machine for at least five seconds. Then reboot the scanner and the sensors should reboot. This solved the problem for us. Good luck to you.

Disconnect the scanner from the computer. Uninstall driver software, shut down and restart the Comp. Reinstall the driver. (http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0036991.asp?model= ). connect the scanner and the system will report USB device plugged in. This should work.

I havent used Canon 2580C and hence cant comment on Scan Panel. But you can download SU5000 or Captureperfect 2.0 from Canon website (http://software.canon-europe.com/). This is easy to use and probably offers more features as compared to ScanPanel. Canon 5010C is a higher model as compared to 2589C and Captureperfect may offer better user interface.

Upgrading windows xp to vista


You can upgrade from your current edition of Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 2000 to a corresponding or better edition of Windows Vista by purchasing and installing an upgrade copy of Windows Vista.
While selecting the edition of Windows Vista that's right for you, it's important to clearly understand what hardware your PC will need to ensure the features you want will run reliably.
