Question about Epson Perfection V100 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Epson v100 - stuck carriage

Scanner was working perfectly fine this morning. Now, scanner is obviously stuck and a "clacking" noise is heard as it tries to slide. Won't budge...tech support was no help and they wanted me to buy another scanner or get this one repaired. Just past the warranty of course.

no way, that i can see, of getting unit open so nothing could have gotten in there.

    I have exactly the same problem including the clacking noise, the stalled slide, and the completely useless product support person.

Check the guide bar that the scanning head rides on. Apply lithium grease to the guide bar. Make sure the gearing is not obstructed

Epson v100 scanner can't write to file


Hi, this message usually appears in the following circumstances:
  1. Not enough hard drive space - check how much space is available and free up space if required.
  2. The location where you are saving your files, all ready has a file with the same name. - You can select a different location to save your files via Epson Scan settings, move or delete existing file.
  3. The location where you are saving your files, has moved or been deleted. - Select a different location to save your files via Epson Scan settings.

After the Espon V100 scans the photo it says: Unable to write the file. Help! :)


Open Epson Scan and select Professional Mode. Open the File save settings and change the Prefix. Once changed you should be able to continue scanning.

Epson V100 flatbed scanner power cord


There's a shop in the UK or Sweden called Clas Olsen that sell a range of multi headed adapters, you have a pack that has the usual ones you see and they have a pack for other adapter heads and one of them fits the V100. How do i know? Cos I bought one for my scanner but it will set you back by £25.

Check the calibration strip to make sure it isn't soiled. This can cause streaking in your scans. Also check the glass where the paper is. Make sure it is clean as well.
