PIXMA MG2522 Scanning function keeps disappearing

The scanner on my Pixma MG2522 keeps disappearing. I will download the driver, use it once, then it says no scanner is found.

I'm on Windows 11. The MG2522 uses a USB connection (no wifi).

Hi,

Try switching the usb cable to another port on your computer. If you dont have a extra port, try switching to a port you know that works( mouse, keyboard, etc). Once that is done, plug the mouse or keyboard usb into where the scanner was and then try to scan again. 

If the issue continues, I recommend reaching out to Canon support for this issue. You will need to register your Canon gear HERE to access additional support options.
