Hi there Ruth A Auten

I have read the question of yours identified the problem causes because of the communication error between the PC and the scanner in order to avoid this u need to try several methods

1st Check the cable whether it has been plugged properly both side (scanner & PC)

2nd Check the Power is coming to the scanner properly

3rd make sure you have no issues with electricity, because if the exact power scanner need is not available the printer will give this error

4th Make sure the scanner software are properly installed and configured

5th Make sure the software version is compatible with your OS version

Best of Luck

Thank You..!!

That’s a sharing error which can happen if the device you want to use over the network is not shared properly with other computers. Before you can use a device like a printer or scanner across a network, the device must be shared properly.

To share your scanner or printer properly across the network, on the computer where the printer or scanner is directly connected, click “Start”, “Control Panel”, “Printers and Other Hardware” then “Printers and Faxes”.

Here, right-click your printer or scanner and select “Sharing”. In the printer or scanner’s “Properties” window, in “Sharing” tab, make sure “Share this printer” is selected then enter your device’s shared name in the “Share name” text field. For example, without quotes “Scanner network” then click “OK”.

After this, you need to add the shared printer or scanner to the rest of the computers on the network. To do this, on every computer, click “Start”, “Control Panel”, “Printers and Other Hardware” then “Printers and Faxes”. Next, click “Add a printer” then click “Next”. In “Add Printer Wizard” dialog, select “A network printer, or a printer attached to another computer” then click “Next”.

Windows will then search the network for possible shared devices and display the results on the screen. Select the shared device you created earlier called “Scanner network” then click “Next”. And that’s it. The shared printer or scanner should now appear on the computer.
