I am having the same problem.  I have a CanoScan LIDE 210.  Currently, the scanner will just sit and cycle or it will do nothing.  When I launch MP Navigator 4, it takes my commands, but then it says it cannot communicate with the scanner.


So far, I have done the following:

-removed MP Navigator and installed the latest MP Navigator from your website

-remove the drivers and installed the latest driver package from your website.


Any solutions?


Well, I gave up trying to get my Cannon MG4120 printer to scan.  It was so easy to scan when I was running on Windows 7.  Here is what I did.  I called Stapples, where I purchase my new ACER computer loaded with Windows 10 and complained about not being able to scan pictures and text file to my document file so that I coud email them. out.  The Staple clerk told me to bring the computer and printer back to them and I did that.  It took one of the staff member about about an hour or so and he was able to solve my proble  I know not what he did and I am not computer literate enough to the point were i'd understand how he did it but I can say that I now can scan documnts and pictures and download them to my files so's ican can email them out.  And oh yes... , there wa no charge!
