SOURCE: error 201
Which scanner is this? Error (201) usually indicates some sort of power issue...such as the scanner is not getting enough power. If this is a USB powered scanner you may try connecting to different USB ports on the computer.

Has your scanner been working before?
If so, has anything changed since then such as new printers or other devices added to the computer, or upgraded to a new OS?
Which OS are you using?
When exactly does the error occur?
Does ScanGear open?
Are you able to preview?
Try connecting the USB cable to another port on the computer (directly to the computer...not through a HUB or any other device). Bypassing a hub, which would have to be a powered HUB, or other devices would rule out any issues with those devices.
Ultimately trying the scanner on another computer would rule out issues with the scanner as well.

SOURCE: CanoScan Lide 25 error message
ok, I solved this problem in an unorthodox fashion but it worked... so far that is. First a little history, I was getting this problem constantly and I was at the point where I was going to dump the machine in the trash... therefore I decided to do a little surgery.
Solution: I ripped off the plastic sides of the scanner and lifted the glass from the front while it was still in the back of the machine. I started to try to scan. After doing that I received a different error. After that error I replaced the glass without the plastic sides and it scanned with no problem. It works for me and it has worked since. Unorthodox? Yes it is, but when I forced a different error and forced recognition. I believe this is a software problem and not a hardware. Good luck to the rest of you. Any questions, I'll try to reply.
