I don,t know how battery cover opens so i can install the batterys,


The battery cover is the bulged part of the plastic, on mine it's a gray color compared to the black body. with the LCD screen to the left and the gray cover to the right, gently press down on the part of the battery cover nearest the LCD screen and press to the right.
That should open it up and get you to the batteries.

I am trying to scan slides with Epson Perfection V500 Photo...I placed the slides in properly and press the scan button on the scanner. It scans the row of slides as they appear on the scanner bed. But...


You have to have the plastic slide holder (positioner) placed perfectly. Look at the "A" and "C" tabs on the plastic holder. If they don't position your slides over the center of the glass, you are using the wrong tab! Slides have to be back-lit, which is what the top cover does. It doesn't light up the sides of the scanner glass, only the middle.

How do you remove the top of the Magic Wand Portable Scanner to install the batteries for Vupoints model # ST415 magic wand?


The battery cover is the silver-colored "hump" on the right side of the scanner. Just slide it to the right, and it'll unhook from the scanner, giving you access to the battery compartment.

My scanner sometimes crops a particular slide but not others. Some scan ok. What is going on?


Be sure to put the slide in the holder in the proper direction. The opening in the slide holder is rectangular, not square like the slide. If you place the slide in the holder horizontally and the holder window is vertical, it will crop off the sides of your picture.

Did you try unlocking the transportation locks? 
There are 2, one on the left side of the scanner and one on the top cover.

Here is a site with some pictures on how to do it.

Will not scan photos, only slides


Where are you scanning from? Do you get an error? If scanning from Toolbox, check the box that says to use ScanGear or use the Scanner driver. Then make sure it is not set for Film as the select source.

Selection menu doesn't give "color positive slide"


Check the cable connection to the lid of the scanner. If this is loose, then you will only get the "Platen" option in the drop down menu.
