I dismissed the error message and unplugged and replugged the scanner, at both ends of the cable. Each time, the scanner initialized, moving the carriage and briefly lighting the lamps. I then tried to scan using the Canon IJ Scan Utility that came with the drive. I got exactly the same error as before.
I went to the Canon support site and checked the latest software. This turns out to be the same installation software as came on a CD.
I tried multiple USB ports (2.0 and 3.0) on my PC with the same results.
Finally I did what I usually do in these circumstances and googled the error code. I found plenty of references on Canon USA and Microsoft sites with many people despairing of this equipment not operating correctly. The error message is clearly ridiculous. There is no power button on the device as it gets its power through USB. I can see it moving when connected and Windows can see it and report it in Device Manager. BUT the Canon software cannot. The consensus on the various forums is that the device driver is faulty and has been so for quite a while. According to the forums the problem is also present on the Lide 220.
I returned the device the Amazon as non-functional. Most of the people complaining about this device suggested the Epson V39 as an good alternative and that is where I will be looking.
Installing the driver was a headache and the installer hanged at stage 3 on more than one attempt. After cancelling and restarting I found that the utility software and driver were indeed installed.
I then tried to scan something using the numerous options (PDF, photo, OCR) with no luck and a window telling me that the scanner wasn't turned on. The scanner has no power switch and is powered via the USB cable. I tried different ports both USB 2.0 and 3.0 with no luck, however the scanner was receiving powr as the scan head moved when connected.
After finding a forum on this subject, it appears that I am not the only one with this issue. Other users using differen Windows versions to mine were having the same problems, the device manager shows everything to be working fine, which can only mean that there must be something wrong with the drivers.
This is clearly an issue than Canon are either not aware of or cannot be bothered to resolve. I'm disappointed as I like Canon products but this experience will have me looking at other brands for products in future.
Not surprisingly it's proving to be a big job for me, but this scanner has help tremendously. It's quick compared to previous devices, straight forward to use and the quality of the scanned photo is excellent.
In particular, it can scan in several photos at the same time then automatically trim and straighten them to create individual images. Worth the money for that alone.
So ... very happy with the purchase and pleased to recommend.
PS, for anyone thinking of doing the same I can recommend Google Photos. Does the job, is free and there's no limit to the number of photos uploaded.
