Are you hooked up thru a pass thru connector? Is the scanner hooked directly to the printer port?

YOu're not the first to have this problem.  I've a primax colorado scanner and what i have found is that if you have a printer installed on your pc, the scanner don't work.
I'm sure you  have tried to put your scanner on lpt1 without your printer but this is not the problem.  You must desinstall your driver and reboot.  After, your colorado will work.  It's a
TUUUUUUT scanner.  Sorry, but it's the only solution i ve found.

Good luck

Sorry, when i say you must desinstall the driver, it's the printer driver and not the scanner driver, of course.
Bye
