Ah, the frustration...

....of having a dead scanner.
Bought the bloody thing barely a month ago, and now my computer refuses to communicate with it after a few weeks of working perfectly fine.
What went wrong, why all of a sudden stopping to work when I have made absolutely no changes whatsoever to any settings?
Machines I tell ya.
I am currently in contact with the tech support of Canon. They've already sent me one troubleshooting, but that wasn't enough to fix the problem. Waiting for another email, and if that doesn't work, telephone help.
And if it all fails, well...I guess I'll see if Canon will want to replace it or something. Maybe just the USB cable...who knows.

Ok, apart from scanner woes, all goes well. Really busy though- I must finish a two page comics this weekend . More details on that later, as it is a paying gig and I want the approval of the publisher first. Won't be doing the coloring though. Yay! That will save me time and stress. I am awfully slow with colors, always retouching, tweaking. I am gettin faster though.

Also finished the first storyboard. Handed in the pages today. Hopefully, there won't be more revisions, or at least, not too many.
Time to start another one. We are approaching the end of the project very quickly though *sigh*

Gah, I wish I could talk a bit more about work...but confidentiality clause rules all.
Wish I could post a few more doodles...but the scanner dictates its laws.

Couple of fun movies starting soon- now I'm curious to see Fido; not a fan of zombie films, but this one sounds different and it's canadian! Woot!

Sucks about your scanner. My brother and I bought this HP printer from Best Buy one time; within a month it had stopped communicating with the computer for some reason. If you wanted to print something out you had to uninstall it then reinstall it again, argh.

I've done multiple tries at reinstalling the drivers, to no avail. Been on the phone with tech support, and we tried everything.
Since it is brand a new scanner, they are sending me a replacement one. Hopefully it won't have any trouble.

I hope that the scanner gets fixed soon, both for your sake and, well, mine. It is a sadness without your sketches. (My seven year old is an Avatar fan (as, er, am I), and your DevArt page gets visited frequently.)

May your work go smoothly and make you happy!

Work goes smoothly. I should be getting a replacement scanner soon, either this friday or beginning of next week.

We'll know soon enough. Will be testing it the moment it has arrived and I connect it.

Best of luck with your scanners too! Seems a reinstalling of the drivers usually gets rid of the problem, but something weird happened to mine. Hopefully your troubles can be fixed easier.
