PIXMA MG2522 Code 5, 156, 69


Receiving code 5,156,69 Cannot communicate with scanner for these reasons: - Scanner is turned off. - USB cable is disconnected. Neither of these is true. I have seen that I need to turn OFF VPN, and I have turned this off, but it isn't helping. I have checked all connections and turned off and on again and downloaded the latest version of the software. HELP!

Hi lupeta_lolo,

What is the model number of the Canon product that you own?

Are you using it wirelessly?
or with a USB cable?

Are you using Windows?
If not, what version of Mac OSX are you using?

Check your firewall or security settings as well. This error can appear when the scanner driver is not being detected correctly. I would recommend reaching out to Microsoft support and they can check any security programs or your firewall to see what could be causing the scanner driver to not be detected.

Had this issue when my scanner had been working without fault.  Did everything tech support here suggested . Just installed a default windows App and guess what, scanner works perfectly. I`m using win 10 64 Bit 

What do you mean by installing a windows default app, what default app?
