Answer -

1. Quit and open Photoshop and try to scan
2. If that does not work, make sure the scanner is turned on and connected to the computer via USB or Fire Wire cable and try to scan making sure that you are selecting the correct scanner.
3. If you are still having a problem, turn off both the scanner and the computer. Then, turn on the scanner first, then the computer. Now try to scan again.
4. If it is still not working, see a tech.
