MF8580Cdw is not scanning Error 255,0,0


MF8580Cdw is not scanning. It has only just started producing this error everytime I follow the following instructions:


Click Scan on machine, remote, and it says waiting


On my computer I open up Toolbox and click scan B&W, it brings up Select Source: Platen Glass. No Auto Mode.

This has only started happening recently. What is the problem.


Then when I click scan. It says Error Code 255,0,0 Terminate Scanner Driver.

Very Frustrating.

Hi RoseCen,


In order to properly assist you, I will just need to know what operating system you are running?  Additionally, how is the unit being connected to your system? (USB or Wireless).

Windows 10 Home is my operating System. There are three computers connected through an ethernet. We use wireless internet.

I hope this helps.
