MX920 airprint scanner not working, printer works

Scanner gives error message that "Scanner is turned off, USB cable is disconnected, check again, scanner driver will be closed, 2.156.0"  I have rebooted router, turned printer off and on, restarted computer, checked all cables.  Airprint is working fine.  Scanner was working just fine this week.  Please advise.

Re: MX920 airprint scanner not working, printer works



Are you only using Airprint or did you install the scanner drivers as well?


Please click HERE to open the support page and download and install the MX920 series Scanner Driver Ver.19.1.0b and ICA Driver Ver. 4.0.0a.


Once that is done, please open Printers&Scanners under your system preferences and click the + button. You will have a option to add new printer. Click "add new printer" and in the new window that opens, select the MX920 series that has IJ Network attached to it.


Once the MX920 IJ Network is added, please try to scan again. If the error appears, please open finder and type IJ Scan Utility and try to scan from the IJ Scan Utility program.


Does this help resolve the issue described?  If so, please click the Accept as Solution button so that others may find the answer as well.
