This article contains some important information regarding ScanGear error code 140.


If you are attempting to SCAN while the printer is performing another operation (for example, printing), please wait for that operation to finish before attempting to SCAN.  

If you are attempting to SCAN while a support code is displayed by the printer, you must address and resolve that support code before you can continue to SCAN.

 For example, a 1688 support code signifies that the printer has detected that one or more of your ink cartridges is empty. You must follow the instructions to resolve the 1688 support code to continue to SCAN.

If your product issue was not resolved after following the steps above, or if you require additional help, please create or log in to your Canon Account to see your technical support options.
