Just recently I have found that my scanner is playing up. Befor I can use it I am having to unplug it and restart my computer then replug in the usb lead to redetect it. If I allow the light to go out(on time ) it will need to be redected again to allow further use. I think that this problem only started recently and after my computer was cable networked to the laptop. Mesh 1900xp XP home OS. 1meg of Ram. 2 80gig HD. Has anyone any idea on how to cure this annoying fault. Thanks for any help.
Bagsey Had a similar problem some time ago with my HP scanner. Went to the HP site and found a patch to download which cured the problem. Have a look at the Canon site to see if there is a similar download.
Bagsey The patch I downloaded didn't say it would cure this or any other problem but it was issued about a year after the scanner had been in production so I assumed that it would iron out any bugs in the system. Which it did.
In the HP site there is a facility to enter model number of whatever piece HP equipment you are using. It will then search for updates which you can download. I don't know if Canon have the same system but its worth another look. Regards Noels
Thanks to everyone for the helpful suggestions. I went through all that had done previously several times, plug, unplug, uninstall , install and nothing worked on a permanent basis, but this morning it worked without any swearing. Dont know why but I suspect a dodgy connection as all that I am aware of doing was to move the scanner slightly on my desk, so I will look more closely at the cable. Thanks again.
