Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I suggest trying some other scanning application, after turning Off the printer for at least 2 minutes.
E.g. MP Navigator EX, or Canon Scan. PaperPort might not suit it so well, yes.
Let me know if that works OK, so that I can advise you further, or at very least close the case. Thanks.
