PF 1800 Scanner Silver--not scanning porperly

I have had this scanner for a few years--it was working fine when I used it about 2 weeks ago. Today it pre scans/scans a slide--the mechanism is moving over the slide--but the resulting image in a completely white box. I reset all of the settings and then I dumped and reloaded the software but that didn't solve the problem. When I look inside I can see the low purple light  so I think the bulb is still working. 
Any suggestions? Thanks Loren

    I took the lid off the scanner and blew it off with air. Then I put it back together and ran it--with the front portion of the cover up. I could see that the front lid was moving over the slide but the resulting image  blank.

The scanner assembly is getting blocked somewhere internally due to dust collected in the assebly.or it can be due to any of the wire internally gone loose or cut slightly so this problem.

Make sure you have Adobe acrobat or similar installed so that you have PDF available on the PC. It may also be in the software for the Epson. I had a scanner a few years ago whose software excluded PDF and I ended up installing new software of a generic printer / scanner to use Adobe PDF

We get a pop-up that says tyhe scanner cannot communicate with the computer. We had just used the scanner a week ago and all was fine. Robert Schneider


First reboot your computer, then check you connection with from the scanner to the computer. By this I mean pulling it out of the scanner if its not permanently mounted on the scanner. Then pull out the computer side and push it in and try to scan. If this doesn't work then if you have another USB cable swap it out with the one on your scanner and try and scan again. The only communication link with your scanner is that cable.

I hope this helps you out.

Try and re-install the scanner, check the settings of the scanner software you are using and change the settings to scan picture or scan in colour. Thanks

Push button to operate and nothing happens


Scan via Twain plugin (photoshop) for the N 650U is the only solution working for me. Front button stopped working after a needed update 3 or so years ago, don't expect that to work anymore.
I am using Mac OS X Snow Leopard on an Intel MPB.

Why won't Minolta film Scanner work with iMac and OSX 10.6.2?


Hi
I bought a secondhand, nearly new Minolta Dimage Scan Elite 5400 a few years ago but never tried to use it until now when I tried to get it to work with my iMac running OSX 10.6.2. I uploaded the Dimage software but I cannot get it to recognise the scanner - any suggestions? Do I need to get updated drivers?

Hp 5400c scans blue images


sounds like a faulty scanning head to me......
when images are scanned they are normally imaged in 3 colours red blue and green these are then combined to give a full colour scan. sounds like you are only getting the blue pass.

not alot that can be done here, if it is in warranty (check with manufacturer for duration of warranty as sometimes this can be more than a year) they should repair or replace this for you

Scanning slides with the Epson Perfection 1250


To be honest, I have no idea of how you were able to scan larger transparencies in the past. The scanner and its software were never designed to do this and there is no workaround.
