Customer Question

I have a Canon Pixma MP495 and having trouble scanning.
When it strarts to scan, it goes through the scanning process and then it sticks and says "please wait a few minutes". I never goes beyond that and the only way I can get out of it is to shut down the computer. I have tried 5 times and it always does that. Once I went to the store and back and it was still "waiting"
