Check if your machine is connected to the

if I/O error is reported while scanning.
Check if the port is not busy. Since functional
components of MFP (printer and scanner)
share the same I/O interface (port), the
situation of simultaneous access of different
“consumer” application to the same port is
possible. To avoid possible conflicts, only one
of them at a time is allowed to gain control over
the device. The other “consumer” will
encounter “device busy” response. This can
usually happen while starting scan procedure,
and appropriate message box will be displayed.
To identify the source of the problem, you
should open ports configuration and select the
port assigned to your scanner. port’s symbol /
dev/mfp0 corresponds to LP:0 designation
displayed in the scanners’ options, /dev/mfp1
relates to LP:1 and so on. USB ports start at /
dev/mfp4, so scanner on USB:0 relates to /dev/
mfp4 respectively and so forth sequentially. In
the Selected port pane you can see if the port is
occupied by some other application. If this is
the case, you should wait for completion of the
current job or should press Release port
button, if you are sure that the present port’s
owner is not functioning properly.
