    However since scanner has a bulb under the glass, make sure you do not damage it while doing so. In case of that please get it repaired by some professional technican. You can go to www.microtekusa.com and then click on the support to get a qualified technican do it for you.



    Thanks

Microtek's last version was for 10.4 and is worth trying on 10.6. drv_sw5_v7_565_ad.dmg
Otherwise the popular VueScan supports virtually every scanner on the market. There is a free trial version to test your scanner here. http://www.hamrick.com http://www.hamrick.com/vuescan/vuescan.htm#microtek
I've used VueScan for over 5 years and it's much easier to use than than Silverfast. The only downside is you can't scan from inside PhotoShop etc. as it's a standalone application and not a plugin

Yellow Streak on Images


I took the scanner apart. Then using a dampened eyeglass cleaning cloth, I gently cleaned the 3 internal mirrors.
No more yellow streak! :)

NEVER buy another Microtek product. They have no authorized repair outlets in the United States, and offer no help even for those of us who bought these expensive units. We are screwed...next time, Epson, for sure.
