  1. Scanner Not Working After Windows 10 Update


    Hi,


    I have a Canon PIXMA MX850 multi-function printer/scanner, connected via our LAN.


    Since the update to Win10 2004 this week I can still print but cannot scan. The Canon Network Scan Utility cannot 'see' the scanner, though Windows still recognises it, in Device Manager under Imaging devices. I now cannot scan anything either from the Canon's own control panel or attempting to initiate from the computer.


    I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, checked windows update, all to no avail.


    Currently running Win10 x64 version 2004 build 19041.388


    Thanks in advance.

    :)

    Epson 1200 scanner now working! Very pleased.


    Worked perfectly,
    • Installed 2400 series driver (when it asked what model I had I also picked, 1270 and 4180 since these had the Slide scanner interface I thought it might add a few extra drivers)
    • Restarted PC
    • Needed to use Device manager 'Updated driver'
    • Assign 2400 driver. (See attached image)
    • Be sure scanner is powered on so it appears in device manager.

    Tested the Slide scanner attachment, I used PRO mode and it was discovered.
    I had to use the plastic blackout slide holder (for masking the slide) to find the slide though.

    TexasBandit,
    Thank you for this assistance. I followed the steps that you said and uninstalled the Validity sensor, restarted my computer and then reinstalled the Validity. However the scanner did not work. If you have any other suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. I am still getting the blank box after clicking the setup, i never get the input screen. Can anyone give any further assistance it would be greatly appreciated.
