Cx4600 scanner will not work

My scanner used to work with my desktop PC. I have gone through the troubleshooting several times. I have uninstalled the software and reinstalled, still same problem. It displays "unable to access the scanner because it is not ready or another app is using it. I have tried connecting to different usb ports. I have never used any other App to scan with. I have the cx4600 software installed on my laptop and using the same printer usb cable from the printer it works fine. So I Know it is not my usb cable. Any suggestions.??

How do i get my mustek 1200 iii ep flatbed scanner to work with windows xp. my computer restarts every time i clink on scan.


If you have the orginal software that came with your scaner and it says that it is compatible to Windows XP, you may need to use the disc to reinstall it. YOu will first need to turn off the scanner and unplug it from the PC. Then uninstall the old software from install/uninstall in your control panel. (start>control panel>install/uninstall programs, search the list for your scanner software.)

If you do not have the software or it is not for Windows XP:

There is the link to a site with a driver download specifically for your scanner, instructions on installing it for windows XP and also a link to answers to problems for your specific scanner.

http://www.mustek.com.tw/Download/driv_scanr/english/1200ub.html
.
Before you begin any download make sure your virus control software is up to date.

First click on the link "Instructions for XP installation and print it out.
Next click on a driver for XP from the chart to download it. When a window pops up click save and browse until you locate desktop. Save this file to your desktop. It will be an .exe file.
Turn off your scanner and unplug it from your PC and uninstall the oldsoftware as advised above.
Click on your new driver file to install it. Follow instructions.
Once the driver is installed, plug the scanner back into the computer and turn it on.
Restart your computer.
It should now recognize your scanner.
Try a scan.

Scanner not scanning


Helen, I feel that the scanner part of the SW has gone corrupt for whatever reason. You must first uninstall the scanner from Control Panel. The reboot the PC and reinstall the scanner. Once done then only you must connect the scanner to the PC. Now allow some time for the Windows to detect the scanner and load its drivers. And when you get a message in the right bottom corner of the screen saying "Your new HW has been installed and is ready for use", you can start scanning documents either from specific program for it or from the word processor. Hope it works for you.

YOU CAN TRY CLOSING EVERYTHING OUT BEFORE USING THE SCANNER
IF THAT DOES'NT WORK SOMETIMES UNINSTALLING THE CANNER THEN REINSTALLING WILL FIX THE PROBLEM

Unable to scan, Unable to get the scanner to even be found (but twice)


Do you have a spare USB cable. Sometimes if that goes bad, that happens.

Try another available UBS port as well.

Canon FB630u problem


Code 19 Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. To fix this problem you can first try running a Troubleshooting Wizard. If that does not work, you should uninstall and then reinstall the hardware device. (Code 19) Recommended resolution

A registry problem was detected.

This can occur when more than one service is defined for a device, if there is a failure opening the service subkey, or if the driver name cannot be obtained from the service subkey. Try these options:

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard. Click Uninstall, and then click Scan for hardware changes to load a usable driver. Restart the computer in Safe Mode, and then select Last Known Good Configuration. This rolls back to the most recent successful registry configuration.

As a last resort, you can edit the registry directly. For more information, see the Registry Reference in the Microsoft Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit at the following Web site: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windows2000serv/reskit/default.mspx?mfr=true (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windows2000serv/reskit/default.mspx?mfr=true)The registry information applies to Windows XP.
