Code: 5, 157, 69


My MG 3620 stopped working to scan though the IJ Scan Utility. I made sure everything was up-to-date, I made sure drivers were up-to-date, I uninstalled and reinstalled, I disabled and reenabled, and I am even using a wired connection (USB). I downloaded the scan app from Windows and that works flawlessly. I keep getting the "Code: 5, 157, 69" error along with "possible reasons" why the applicaiton can't communicate with the scanner. None of which apply to my situation. Under "Scanner Selection", it shows the only scanner which, again, works fine with the Windows Scan app. I checked other forums and no, I'm not using a VPN.
