"Antique" Microfilm Scanner flashing "Error 13" and not reading Microfilm

At my work I use a very old model Canon Microprinter 90. The number on the back label of the machine is M32043.

It worked fine earlier this week, but this morning I've been trying to enter a cartridge of Microfilm and it wouldn't grab the film. Instead, the lap keyboard flashed "Error 13" and there was nothing I could press or do to make it clear the screen.

I then fiddled around with the scanning area of the machine, including the large turn-dial on the right used to slowly move the film by hand to the desired slide you want.

After that the screen read (After the 8-10th time of turning the machine off and then on) "Reset Knob" on the lap keyboard. I tried the turn-dial on the main part of the machine and nothing changed. Then I turned the dial on the keyboard and it switched to "Set Cartridge". I tested it and turned the dial back and it still said "Reset Knob". I ignored it, set it back to "Set Cartridge" and finally entered the cartridge of Microfilm in.

It grabbed the film after a third attempt than rather for waiting for me to enter a slide number, it went haywire and just started forwarding through the film. When I hit "break" on the keyboard, it stopped but if I hit "yes" to continue it would keep going forward. All I could do was rewind it. Once that happend it said "Error 02".

I turned the machine off, then back on and saw the keyboard flash again "Error 13". What must I do to return the machine back to its regular functionality?

Uninstall the scanner software and also the program you use to access the scanner Restart the computer and reload the software[s] Or first try a system restore.

SOURCE: scanner not responding to preview scan

Try this as a last ditch effort. Remove the software. Reboot the computer and come off line. Disable the Anti Virus program. Now install the soft ware. Then try. If the red light still flashes then assume it is new scanner time.

SOURCE: Epson perfection 4990 photo scanner

Please do the following to scan slides or negatives in manual mode of the Epson TWAIN:
For scanning transparencies in HOME mode - for EPSON SCAN models, not Epson Twain/Manual mode models.
1) In the program you are working from, begin the scanning process. If working in FULL AUTO MODE as the scan begins click PAUSE or CANCEL, then change "Full Auto Mode" to "Home Mode".
2) You will now see all Epson Scan settings displayed. If the scanner has not previewed automatically, click the large preview button to get a visual of what is on the scanner.
3) Ensure the settings on the Epson Scan are correct for what you wish to scan. For example, the DOCUMENT TYPE for transparencies must be either "Color negative film", "B&W Negative Film" or "Positive film"*.
* FILM here indicates that the item being scanned is transparent to light; this setting is also used for slide scanning. Positive indicates that the image is in true colors (ie the grass is green and sky is blue), whereas negative indicates reversed colors, as produced in some photo finishing processes.)
If the DOCUMENT SOURCE is set for a flatbed related option, ie PHOTO, the scanner is looking for reflective items and will not activate the backlight in the transparency unit. If the DOCUMENT TYPES for "FILM" are greyed out or cannot be selected, close the Epson Scan, reseat the power/communication cable connecting the base of the scanner to the transparency unit, then reopen Epson Scan and try again.
NOTE for PROFESSIONAL MODE users: DOCUMENT TYPE should read TRANSPARENCY for film scans.
4) Ensure the other scanner settings are correct for the type of scan you are doing. For example:
IMAGE TYPE should be color photo for all positive or negative color transparencies, or BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO for monochrome transparencies.
DESTINATION is unimportant, however you should select a RESOLUTION appropriate to what you plan to do with the scans. (There are no hard and fast rules for DPI. As a general guideline, if you are saving scans at original size, a resolution ranging from 400-600 DPI should capture enough information to faithfully record the image. If the slide or negative will be enlarged, you will need to increase this DPI accordingly. We have no means to calculate what your exact needs will be in this situation; you will need to experiment and view the output to gauge the appropriate input DPI from the scanner.)
PREVIEW. If your scanner is doing a THUMBNAIL PREVIEW, the slides will automatically preview and appear in boxes on the left side. Here, you can select or deselect the slides you wish to scan.
If you recieve a message that the scanner could not find the film, or you see in the preview that part of the scan is cut off, click the down arrow next to the large PREVIEW button and click NORMAL, then PREVIEW again. In NORMAL PREVIEW mode, the scanner will capture all information on the flatbed; you will then have to manually marquee or crop the slides you wish to scan. Use the left mouse button (click, hold, drag) to lasso one slide inside a box made of dotted lines, then click scan. Only the selected area will scan. Repeat this process for as many slides or filmstrips are on the bed.
5) Click CLOSE once scanning is complete. The images will now transfer to the application in use.

    The sole message is "Scanner error"? ... Odd.

    I'm not sure what version of OmniPage you're working with. This manual's probably in the ballpark:
    ftp://ftp.scansoft.com/files/support/manuals/op15guide.pdf/

    It looks like they suggest a different route, a different workflow process -- scan in all your images at once, then handle processing in a batch. I think you do some processing, then try to get the next image. This may have nothing at all to do with your "scanner error," but it's worth a try (and if/when you get the error resolved, this is a smarter way to use your time).

    Before you go down that road, though, look for some updates. Some errors are often fixed with updates, and it's worth a try.

    Look for updates to OmniPage. I believe you can look through the program itself -- was it Help: Update? You can also look here:
    http://support.nuance.com/downloads/

    There may also be a somewhat newer driver for your scanner; I don't know; the only drivers there are about a year old. The link:
    http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=119&modelid=15562
    Scroll down a bit, click on the Drivers and downloads page.

    Please please please let me know if this doesn't work for you. And if it doesn't, if you can write down the exact error message, we can try to find out some more answers. If you just bought it, you may also be eligible for free tech support from Canon and/or OmniPage; I don't know. They'll tell you to follow these same steps as well, I'm sure. =)
