As I understand you are unable to scan after installing Windows 10. Am I correct on that?

Is the printer connected via USB cable or wireless ?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
usb cable

We need to upgrade/reinstall the complete printer drivers on the computer as upgrading windows version will cause driver incompatibility.

Unplug USB cable from the printer.

Start > Control Panel > Programmes and Features > Uninstall all Canon Printer softwares currently listed.

Once done download latest drivers from the following location and install it -

OK - will give it a try

Let me know if you face any issue

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Have completed download and install of latest drivers (as above) but the problem is still the same. Scanning results in a blank pdf document (? icon) in Canon My Image Garden. Creating a pdf says 'Failed to load' - any thoughts?!

Can you share the computer screen with me ?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Because of previous problems I am very reluctant to do that!

Let me check what else I can do for you. Give me sometime

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
OK - thanks

Did you complete remove all Canon softwares before installing the new one ?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
All software related to the printer

Turn off the printer. Unplug the power cord from the wall socket and keep it off for 2-3 mins. Plug back in the cord and turn back on the printer and check

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
OK will do

Sure. Let me know.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No different - I guess turning off the PC is next?!


Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No luck - I've rebooted but it made no difference.

Do you have the pdf reader installed after upgrading to Windows 10 ?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I have Adobe Acrobat Reader which has been installed since day one. Windows 10 was an update not a new install so yes the pdf reader is still there

Sorry. We have run out of options on chat. I can help further but only on remote session.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
OK - having had a bad experience with remote access before I'm not keen to do that. I'm thinking new printer as the solution (as they are pretty cheap these days). Many thanks for your efforts and I'll sort your rating - no negatives!!

Welcome. Take care
