Remove the scanner from your system, then re-install as per instructions supplied. Check to see if there are any later version drivers/software.

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling scanner?

try removing it all together and re-installing.
go to control panel,system,hardware,device manager,select your scanner and remove it.
Then re-install your scanner

puppygirl - Go to the canon website support/help for driver-software [if you have no disc]and download from there.

You haven't stated your operating system, doe's this confirm that you have a printer connected!.
