Question about Scanners

Visioneer 9420 Scans are terrible

The scanner is operating but the scans are horrible.
They used to just fine. I had great clear scans. I don't know if upgrading another program corrupted my scanner.
Sometimes they are completely blank, sometimes all I get is a bunch of colored lines. Definitely not usable.
I have contacted Visioneer and everything they told me to do has not helped. They have agreed to send me a replacement scanner if I send them a copy of my receipt but I can't seem to locate it so I am pretty disappointed. I sure hope you can help better than they did.

    Same Problem, used to be fine, now just blank or smeared lines. Tried uninstalling drivers/etc, no help. The scanner appears to do everything it used to. Also tried it in several other image programs.

Driver for vsioneer OneTouch 8900 for Windows 7


First install your regular drivers for your scanner and then turn it off.

http://support.visioneer.com/products/9420/downloads_1.asp

Download drivers for your scanner from the page above, don't mind it is not the same model - it will work. Also it will work with One touch 8700 Visioneer windows 7 x64 with the drivers for 8900 and 9420.

Next, install the driver, and then open Windows Explorer i locate files at:
C:\Windows\twain_32\VizScan\8xxx. Copy them all to:
C:\Program Files\Visioneer\OneTouch 4.0\9420 Driver
Next step is to tell your computer exactly what driver to use by right clicking on My Computer in Windows Explorer, then Properties, and then Device Manager. Now, turn on your scanner and it will appear on the list. Right click on it and select Properties. There click "Browse my computer for driver software" and then "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" and browse to: C:\Program Files\Visioneer\OneTouch 4.0\9420 Driver. Select OT_9420.inf and install it. Now u can use your scanner on Win7 and enjoy! Don't mind the different name! ;)

All the best to ya all

Downloads


This site has the drivers, installation manual and other files, http://support.visioneer.com/products/9420/downloads.asp . However, you will need to check the bottom of your unit and select the part number for your unit.

Notes from the important notes file, make me think you will have to uninstall the driver you obtained earlier and disconnect the USB cable from the computer. Download the files from the above site and install the driver. The computer will prompt you to connect the scanner to the computer.

I hope this helps.

How to scan slides with Visioneer 9520 USB Scanner - it scans who


I have successfully used my Visioneer 9520 to scan 35mm slides, and they came out perfect. To do this, in my image editing software, I select File/Import/Acquire/Visioneer ScanManger Pro. This opens the VIsioneer scan manager window, where I select "Scan 35mm using:" and then I choose the desired scanning configuration, e.g., "35mm Better, 35mm Best, Custom" etc. See image below.
BTW: After several moves, I have lost my 35mm scanning template. Do you know where I can get another one, or do you know someone who could actually scan theirs and email the image to me? I could then create a duplicate from heavy black construction paper or card stock.

Scanner


After downloading the visioneer 9420 driver file (found on the visioneer site, but before installing it, remove your old 8100 driver, then install the 9420 driver by running the .exe file you downloaded from visioneer. Then, use Device Manager, go to -update device drivers and in the listing you should see the 8100 listed. Double click on it, click on -update, go to -browse my computer for driver software, then go to -let me pick from a list, then you should see the 8100 scanner appear, click on it, click on next, and then it will install the 9420 driver. My 8100 is working great on a vista system. Don't get rid of that scanner! It works!

8100 Visioner conflicts with Vista


Verified to work with Vista Home Premium x64 (should work for x32 as well):


1. Make sure your 8100 is unplugged.


2. Go to Visioneer's website and download drivers for the OneTouch 9420 scanner:

http://support.visioneer.com/products/home/9420/downloads_1.asp


3. Install the drivers. Nothing will work... yet, don't worry.


4. Now plug in your 8100. You'll get a message saying that Vista wants to find drivers. Select "Ask Me Later" or just cancel.


5. Next, open up Control Panel and then Device Manager. Find your 8100 in there (probably listed as "Unknown Device") and then right click on it and say "Update Driver Software". Now click "Browse My Computer For Driver Software" then "Let Me Pick From A List Of Device Drivers On My Computer".

6. Scroll down to "IMAGING DEVICES" then find Visioneer, then you should see the "Visioneer 9420" driver. Select it. You'll get a warning from Vista, but continue anyways. That's it... everything should work.

Visioneer 8920


I have had this very problem with 2 of these scanners (8920) and finally figured out what happens is that the cheap chinese power supply loses power over time and then finally gives out. Before it fully gives out it doesn't have enough power to scan properly but will still turn the scanner on. Symptoms range from terrible scans with noise to the dreaded "scanner is locked" error. I got a new power supply from radioshack - 12 VDC at 1.5A (1500 MA) and it works like brand new! Make sure the power supply can deliver the full 1.5 A of the original! This is very important.

Get another scanner. Check whether the lock has not been enabled at the bottom of the scanner. This has happened with me as well and a known Visioneer problem.
