I have the Canon MG5750 printer. Scanning to the PC worked

This answer was rated:

I have the Canon MG5750 printer.
Scanning to the PC worked perfectly until about a week ago since when i have tried numerous times to reconnect etc
Now I can suddenly no longer scan documents on it.
I press Scan and the screen reads PC USB, Doc type Autoscan. If I press the Black button, the message is Set the PC to start scanning. If I press OK, the display reverts to PC Local (USB). If I press on Save/Forward, the second icon on the screen is PC. If I press OKthe screen says "Select PC" and LOcal USB. If I press Search again, it says Processing: Please wait momentarily, but then reverts to Select PC

Have you tried power cycling the machine see if it comes up with a error code.

I’ve turned off overnightNot 100% sure what “power cycling” is

turn off and on again, and also connect the usb cables on both ends and then restart the computer.
