Scanner Issue


I had a brief foray into film and purchased a brand new scanner ... (canoscan 9000f).

It worked great and a couple of my images are posted on my gallery.

I put the unit away for about a year and got it back out, after moving house now the desktop shows error( cannot communicate with scanner error) it offers a code 2,250.5 or something alternate.
I have two desktops identical wind 7 and 10 and it offers the same problem..

Checked online and downloaded alternate drivers etc...

Does anyone offer any windows advice which might prohibit its use...

Re: Scanner Issue

I had something similar with a Nikon film scanner. The problem with this one is that the scanner driver software is "unsigned" which I think means that Microsoft don't certify it as safe - and Nikon are not providing any development or support for any of this older stuff.

There is a kludge to get Windows to accept unsigned drivers. Have a look for it, if you can't find anything I will have a dig around in my old installation notes. I did find that the problem sometimes comes back after a big Windows update, which is extremely annoying.

Re: Scanner Issue

My suggestion would be to post a question on the Rangefinderfurum > scanners > scanner software here: https://www.rangefinderforum.com/for...hp?forumid=148

No need to be a 'Rangefinder' user, the forum is populated with all sorts of cameras and users.

Best of luck and I'm glad to see another who appreciates film.

Re: Scanner Issue

Not sure if this will work... but has to be worth a try?

1. From the Start menu, click >Settings, >Devices, >Printers & Scanners.

2. Towards the bottom of the Printers & Scanners area, turn off Let Windows manage my default printer.

You may have to delete any extra icons of the scanner in the Printers & Scanners menu before reinstalling the scanner drivers,

3. Once this has been done, reinstall the drivers again.

Good luck.
It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.
