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.

Re: My Scanner Died in the middle of scanning

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

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!

When I turn on my computer in the morning, often times my scanner is trying to copy even though I was not in the middle of trying this when I shut it down. How do I find out why & stop it?

The scanner is not trying to copy. It is putting itself through a power on self test to determine readiness for anything you might wish to scan.

DR-9080C intermittent stops during scanning which last 3 to 5 minutes

Do you have enough hard disk space? Reinstall your driver software. Run Scandisk on the Comp.

Is the problem coming on after a set time interval, any heating smell?

Are you getting an error/ red light on the scanner button when its on? when scanning from Paint ( File, then from scanners and cameras) does it freeze as well? or only when using epson scan? make sure cable is directly connected from the scanner to your computer, no hubs or anything.. keep me posted.

Have a nice day!!

Scan image is discolored

The scanning carriage in the scanner may have lost the home position and needs to be reset. 1. Shut the computer system off, and then disconnect the scanner from the power source. Leave the scanner disconnected from the power source for at least one full minute. 2. Reconnect the power, and then restart the computer system. 3. When the computer system has fully restarted, try scanning again. Ensure the issue is not caused by Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) EMI can cause similar Image Quality issues. Verify that the scanner is not in the direct vicinity of the computer monitor and/or speakers. If so, relocate the scanner at least three feet away from the monitor and/or speakers and retry the scan. good luck..
