What kind of cable connects the scanner to a pc

Take a look at this picture:

The while cable with two flat ends is the cable that connects the scanner to the computer. It's called "Parallel Cable". Here's the picture:

You can buy it from here (Click Here)

If I am right, this scanner has also a usb port, if so, you can use this type of cable, Hp USB Printer/Scanner cable:


If you have problem, let me know.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do i use an epson filmscan 200 with a laptop running windows 7

were you using it under windows xp? if you have 32 bit windows 7 I would try those same drivers. Unfortunately the filmscan 200 came out under windows 95/98 and so Epson never released XP drivers and some people were able to make it work.
I would consider connecting it to an older computer running windows 98 and then transfer the files as you scan them (this would definitely be the least painful)
If you have 64 bit windows 7 I would not even waste the effort, 32 bit is a long shot maybe.
Do you have scsi drivers on the the windows 7? because the filmscan 200 is a scsi 2 device
Good luck

    250 error on documate 510 xerox

    Symptom: When scanning you receive an error 250. Cause: This problem can be caused by several different things but is often a driver or communication problem. Solution: Here are several solutions that can resolve this problem:

    Solution 1 - Check for communication problems

    Using any of the following can cause communication errors:
    • USB hubs
    • Docking stations
    • USB extension cables
    • USB cables longer than 6'
    • Connecting the scanner to one of the computers front USB ports (desktop computer only)
    Connect the scanner directly to a USB port on the back of the computer (or side for notebook computers) using a 6 foot or shorter cable.

    If you still receive the same error message, try a different USB cable.

    Solution 2 - Redetect the scanner with Hidden Devices

    Windows Vista, XP and 2000 users
    1. Disconnect the power and USB cable from the scanner.
    2. Click here and select "Run" or "Open".
    3. The Windows Device Manager will open.
      • Click on the "View" menu then select "Show hidden devices".
    4. Click the "+" next to "Imaging Devices". This will show all Imaging Devices previously and currently connected to the computer.
    5. Right-click on the Visioneer or Xerox scanner name and left click on "Uninstall".
    6. If the scanner is listed more than one time, uninstall ALL occurrences of the scanner.
    7. IF you see "?Other Devices" in the device manager list, click on the "+" to view the list of Other Devices.
    8. Right click then left click on "Uninstall" for each occurrence of the scanner. The scanner may be listed as any of the following:
      • USB Scanner
      • USB Device
      • Unknown Device
      • 1200 DPI Scanner
      • (Your Scanner Model)
      • (any other scanners or cameras listed here that you no longer use)
    9. Click the "+" next to "Universal Serial Bus Controllers".
    10. Right-click every listing of "Unknown Device" and select uninstall.
    11. Once all instances have been removed from device manager, reconnect the power and USB.
    Windows Me and 98 users
    1. Right-click on the "My Computer" icon on your Windows Desktop
    2. Select "Properties" from the list
    3. Click on the "Device Manager" tab
    4. Find "Imaging Devices" and click on the plus (+) next to it to expand the list
    5. Select your scanner, then click on the "Remove" button
    6. IF you see "?Other Devices", click on the plus (+) next to it to expand the list
    7. Select your scanner then click on the "Remove"; button – your scanner may be listed as any of the following:
      • USB Scanner
      • USB Device
      • Unknown Device
      • 1200dpi Scanner
      • (your scanner model)
    8. Close the Device Manager
    9. Unplug the scanner from the computer and from the power
    10. Plug the scanner back in to the computer and power
    Solution 3 - Check for power problems

    If the power for the scanner is plugged into a surge protector, battery backup (UPS), or extension cord, plug the scanner directly to the wall.

    Solution 4 - Check for conflict with other devices

    This error can also be caused by a conflict with another USB device.
    1. Disconnect all USB device from the computer (including the scanner), except for you keyboard and/or mouse
    2. Turn the scanner off
    3. Restart the computer
    4. Once the computer has fully restarted, reconnect and power on the scanner
    5. If the scanner works properly at this time, it means there is a conflict with another device on the computer
    6. It may help to isolate the two items by connecting one of them to a USB add-in card
    Solution 5 - Test the scanner on a different computer

    If possible, you should try the scanner on a different computer. If the scanner works correctly on a different computer, then the problem is environmental and may be related to your chipset. See solution 6 below.

    Solution 6 - Check the computer's chipset

    This problem can also be caused by the computer's chipset. To check the chipset:

    1. Vista, XP and 2000 users: Click here and select "Run" or "Open".
      ME and 98 users: Right click on 'My Computer', select 'Properties' then click the 'Device Manager' tab.
    2. The Windows Device Manager will open.
    3. Click on the plus (+) next to 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers'.
    4. This list will include your computer's chipset.

    5. The follow chipsets are known to have communication problems:
      • SiS 7001
      • VIA Rev. 5 or later
      • Open HCD
      • ALi
    6. If your chipset is one of those listed above or it is only listed as 'Standard', you can try updating the chipset drivers.
      • Contact your computer's manufacturer for more information.
    7. If the problem persists, you may need to use a USB add-in card.
      • This is a PCI card that will add more USB ports to your computer.
    8. For more information about USB chipset issues, see

    Scanner not detected

    I have the same problem with my Canoscan LiDE 25 scanner used sparingly since purchase in 2008. Last used 3 days back after a gap of a few months when it scanned a few pages and then stopped working. On connecting the scanner to my laptop on Vista Home Premium 32-bit it shows "USB device not recognized". No change in status after uninstalling drivers, cleaning my system, and reinstalling drivers from the Canon CD, or Canon US site, or Canon UK site. Even tried VueScan but this also does not recognize the scanner. I find it hard to believe that a Canon product stops working in barely 5-6 years even though it is very sparingly used and stored in the original packing when not in use.

    Not connecting with computer

    hello, not enough information given to diagnose your problem correctly, but sounds like you may have left out a step, when hooking up the scanner, some require the software and drivers to be installed before you hook the scanner up to the computer, aka you install the scanners software, then you plug the scanner into the computer with the usb cable, then you turn on the scanner and windows will see that a device has been ada via usb, it will set up the newly isnatlled device and you will be all set. alot of people forget to isnatll before they hookup and cause a few isues hope this helps you. also please uninstall the scanner and follwo the steps and you will probably be fine. good luck.

    Computer can't "see" scanner even though plugged into USB port

    please check:
    if other usb-devices work with your pc, so usb ports of your machine are ok.
    try connecting the printer to another machine, using same procedure as u did with the old one

    did you get any installation cd with it?
    any newer drivers for your win-system available?( inet, manufacturers homepage)

    if your system and the printer passed the hardware check, install newer drivers and try again.

    wish u luck
