If this error only occurs when scanning from the button on the machine, then the issue is caused because the computer has two or more active network connections. 


For example the computer is wired and wireless to the same router or has two wireless connections.  If this is the case, you must choose ONE connection and disable any others.  To determine if the computer has multiple network connections:


1. Launch the Command Prompt window:


Windows 7 or earlier:


  1. On the computer, click Start => Run (or in the Search line).


  1. Type: CMD and press ENTER.



Windows 8:


  1. Move your mouse to the lower left corner of the Desktop or Start screen.


  1. Right-click the screen and then left-click Command Prompt.



2. A command prompt window will open.


3. Type: IPCONFIG and press ENTER.


4. You should receive information about your computer's network connection.  Make a note of the IP or IPv4 Address.  You may have to scroll up to see all IP addresses.


-         The image below shows a computer with two network connections.  If you have two network connections (like in the example below), then disable one.  If you cannot determine how to disable one, contact the Network Admin or Router Manufacturer for support.



-         If you have only one network connection, continue to PART 2.





Ensure that you are able to scan into a different application such as Scanner and Camera Wizard or Windows Fax and Scan.  The available scan application will vary depending on the Operating System.


-         If you are able to scan with another application, continue to PART 3.


-         If you are not able to scan, then this solution DOES NOT apply.  Please refer to a general solution for "unable to scan" based on the OS and connection type.

NOTE: You may choose Run instead.  If you do so, then continue to PART 4 STEP 6.
