Question about Umax Office Equipment & Supplies

My UMAX PowerLook 1100 does not start and gives the message CANNOT CALIBRATE SCANNER. I have dowloded the latest software from Silverfast Ai v.6.6 and thought that would fix the problem as I run a MacPro with OSX 10.5.5

    Well, thanks. The lamp does light and the scanner starts up with trying to shift the lamp but then stops and flashes the error message and by the way- the lock is open! The power is there and the firwire works or it wouldn't start on a cycle.

Check all of your connections, and the USB into the machine. It should at least start. If there is no power, it may have just burnt out the lamp. sorry I couldn't be more helpful but if it dosen't go on it is not a software problem, good luck, Gym

    Ok lets try this, delete it from the device manager, as long as you have the disks for it . Once you restart it will ask you for the software for the "new hardware", just choose install from ****, if it ain't working anyhow, it can't hurt, sometimes it may loose the irq, and needs a little nudge, good luch Gym

My 3330 says scanner bulb is warming up then it gives me a error 79 message no ,matter how many times i restart it


The error 79 on that machine means that the scanner assembly has failed to align/calibrate. Could be due to a bad calibration strip on the scanner glass, have you ever sprayed glass cleaner directly onto the scanner glass? If so this can stain the calibration strip and render the scanner useless. It is probably best to have the machine serviced by HP.

Put in new ink and it is telling me out of ink and will not let me print anythings.. How do you reset ink


Simple oly when you know how ;-)

I think you have a slight blockage, to solve:- (dont know which printer or PCyou have so ill do my best)

Click on Start
All programms
Pick your printer from the list
Open the software
You will have 2,3 or 4 options depending on your printer spec.

You need to 1st remove the cartridge
Print 1 page with no INK a message will pop up saying con not print need ink for example.
You then NEED to calibrate your cartridge, you need to find:-
1 Align Cartridge/Nozzle - Unblocks, and Sets up. (Syncronize)
2 Calibrate Black - unblock black
2 Calibrate Colour - unblock colours
3 Print test Page - See how it looks
5 Align again - Unblocks everything giving good ink flow and gets the print right close to 100%
6 print test page!

It shoud now work ;-)

Good Luck xxx

I have an Epson Perfection 3590 Photo and when I tried to open it this appears:"escndv.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. Sorry for the...etc." I have already downloaded the Epson Scan...


This file that cannot be found "DICElib.dll" is actually installed by the LaserSoft SilverFast driver that comes with both scanner models. This file gets placed in the Epson Scan folders during installation because the LaserSoft SilverFast Driver works in conjunction with the Epson Scan driver for communication to the scanner. The solution to this issue is to uninstall and re-install the LaserSoft SilverFast Driver and NOT the Epson Scan driver.

On the "Start Here" poster it says that you have to install the Epson scan driver first before installing the LaserSoft SilverFast. Other possible causes are that the file has become corrupt, has been moved or has been deleted.

If this will not work, please call epson technical support. They have troubleshooting steps for that type of issue that cannot be disclosed here.

Please let them know if you have any other scanners or digital cameras installed on your system. If so, provide the model and manufacturer.

I recently change my computer for Window Vista, I have a scanner, Umax Astra 3400,which i don't use very often,but I would like to know why I cannot operate it with Window Vista. Used to have Window...


Sadly, you won't be able to use that device on Vista. The latest drivers available for that device is for Windows XP.

I've researched it, and all I can find are the drivers up to XP.

Office Jet K60xi Scanner Failure


Try HP's web site suggestions first.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01077492&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=61736

If your sacnner still fails to function, uninstall everything for the Officejet through add/remove in control panel. (Power off printer before uninstalling).
Go to Hp's web site. http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/welcome.html#Support
Step 1. Click, Download drivers and software (and firmware).
Go to step 2. For product, type in Officejet k60xi .
Power on your printer. (Wait for printer to fully power on).
Click, Start Detection>> button.
Allow HP to scan your system & install the latest software.
Follow the on scren instructions. (When finished, restart your PC). Test your scanner by scanning something.
If your scanner still fails to scan, you may be missing basic HP files loaceted in windows system & windows system32 folders.
(These missing files were not installed during your install of windows). Not your fault.
