How do I get OS X Yosemite to recognize a scanner?

Liz Jones October 21, 2014

My Canon Pixma 540 does not scan since updating to OS X Yosemite 2 days ago.

It prints files, images, etc… but it won’t scan images and the error message reads:

No scanner or camera connected!

Is there any way to fix or diagnose a disconnected scanner in Apple’s OS X 10.10, Yosemite?

    Try installing the latest driver for your scanner (ICA driver) from the Canon Support site.
    Most 10.9 drivers should work just fine under OS X 10.10
