Re: scan c4450


is that 'scan to computer'? if it is, then, it's not an error msg, it's an option for scanning.

what do you want to accomplish by the way? scan a docu or picture and saving it to your computer?

what is the OS? and what type of connection (USB or network)?

hey there i am having the same problem right now and i cant seem to figure it out. I get an error after i select the Scan to PC option and the error reads this, Scan Error: Try scan from computer or see documentation, i dont know how to scan from computer and dont know where to look in the "documentation."


I am trying to scan some pictures and documents onto my computer with this and it had worked a while ago and now it doesnt work.

I have Windows XP 32bit and i am using the USB connection to the back of my computer.


Thanks in advance for any help



Also when it goes to scan i dont even hear the little bar goin across to scan anything, but when i scan to reprint the scan works perfectly. regular printing works just fine as well just Scan to PC doesnt work.
