I can scan documents/pictures ok but I want to copy something. The printer should start printing as soon as the scan is finished but it's not working:( although the printer is working for all other jobs.
Using Windows Vista home ....Cannon S200SP printer.
Thanks for any help.

Re: Printing - using the 'copy' mode of the scanner
This suggests the the 'copy' element of the software is not VISTA compatible.
In VISTA help in my computer - check out the 'compatibility' options
and select an operating system that the copy function did work under

Sounds like you're having a problem with the automatic document feeder. The scanner is continuing to scan but the paper is not advancing as it should during the first part of the infeed. Check to see if something is inside retarding the path of the scanned document. Or it could be worn rollers in the ADF.
What do you mean by copies? Like printing 1 page in more than 1 copy?
In the Print dialog box (when you click the File => Print command), You can increase the number of copies to be printed in just one printing.
If your printer is multi-function (one printer that can scan, copy, and print), just place the document to be copied (photocopy) in the scanner tray, cover it and then PRESS the OK. In some models, it is MONO or COLOR under START button group.
Because they can't talk directly to each other. Kind of like the scanner is speaking in German and the printer is Spanish....The application used for the scanner is bilingual, therefore the printer can understand what it is supposed to print.
Does this help? You obviously have to insert the media type into the media slot on the far right.(omoademola)

If the line only appears when the scanner is used & not when printing directly from the computer, you are correct in assuming the problem lies in the scanner assy. There should be mirrors attached to the scanner assy which will gather dust and cause copy/scan problems. Remove the glass & clean the mirrors with a DRY cotton cloth. Do not use any cleaning solution on the mirrors as they are sometimes treated & can be ruined if they come in contact with a cleaning solution. Use the dry cloth to wipe off the lens while you have it apart.Also clean both sides of the copy glass while you have it off. Reinstall glass & test.Cleaning the optics solves the problem most of the time. Good Luck!!
