My Scanner Died in the middle of scanning

I was scanning a slideshow onto my computer when all of a sudden, during one of the scans, my scanner shut down and stopped working. Prior to the scanner shutting down, I heard a pop coming from the rear of the machine. Now my scanner will not even turn on. If anyone knows what occurred and how I can go about fixing it, please let me know.

Coudl have been a fuse, a bulb, but most likely you would know if it was the bulb, and it was probably a capacitor overloading and exploding, its repairable if you can locate, de-solder, and replace the blown capacitor, your best bet is probably going to be to purchase a new scanner, unless it was just a short in the power cord in wich case the power cord may be the only thing effected but that almost never happens, I'd put my money on a blow cap but then again i could be wrong

I have scanner hooked up to laptop and i press scan, it says scanning but has nothing showing up for a picture scanned

Is this a new scanner? If so, most scanners come "locked".
Make sure you consult your user manual and remove the lock (usually by turning a knob/handle/switch under the hood somewhere).

If this has scanned before, watch the scanner bed as you try to scan. If the light does not coarse the entire scanner bed, then the lock may have become re-enabled... or the motor could have come off track. Sometimes this can be fixed by manually adjusting things inside (be careful! as this could really damage your scanner).

If the light does move entirely across the bed, try to re-install the software onto your computer. If you dont have the software, you can grab a copy at dell's support site.

Also, check your cables. If you are trying to scan through a network, you might try USB instead, just to make sure the scanner works. and its not a connection problem.

The connection type can be set during installation.

Hope this helps!

I want to save the scan to the computer. What do I have to do?

HI, If you have Photo shop Elements, go to File then Import and look up you scanner from the list. If you are scanning from the scanner, it must see your computer to save to a file you created.
I use Photo shop, I've never scanned from the scanner onto the computer.

Take care...

When I am scanning negatives, and try to save my scan to a file on my computer, it sounds like something is stuck and when the picture is finally saved, the middle of it is blank or shows rainbow-like wavy...

There is usually a locking lever on the bottom of the scanner to lock the mechanism during shipping or transport. Make sure that lever is fully in the unlocked position!

Black line in the middle of the output - scaned document


A black line down a scanned page indicates a dirty scan glass. Lift the top of you scanner like you would putting a page or book down to scan. On the end of the scanner that has the document feeder you should see a thin piece of glass the is separate from the larger glass pane. This is the document feeder glass. Now check it over for a very small mark of ink or dirt. You can use regular glass cleaner to wipe this glass just spray it on a piece of cloth not the scanner then wipe. You may have to wipe and then try scanning several times if the ink or marker is died on. while you are cleaning you should also clean the main glass pane, it will make the scans clearer and crisper.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Florescent light died on my scanner, glows a

The bulb is blown, it may function once in a while, but repairing may be too costly.
Your scanner has a 1200dpi resolution. There are similar, yet better scanenrs for less than $50.
You might consider an EPSON scanner/printer for under $50. Some EPSSON printers can also print CD labels, directly printing onto the CD!
