Microtek Scanner thinks it's busy when it isn't

My scanner seems to think it is scanning when it actually isn't. Thus, it won't let me scan anything new - when I try, I get a message that the scanner is busy. I've clicked "cancel" and I've also turned the scanner and computer off and disconnected the USB cable for the scanner, but when I reconnect and bring the computer and turn the scanner back on, I still get the "busy" message. I can run the diagnostic on the scanner, though, and I'm told that the scanner is working. Help!

First thing to do is un install and reinstall the software. Then consider - what other software could be running the could conflict[A graphics program for example]is to try another software for scanning if available. The other thing to consider is the age of the scanner- if it is from the DOS era-95/8/ME- then it will like as not not run- there is a firmware problem. Scanners have a controller chip - DOS era devices are looking for DOS commands - and they are getting NTFS commands- various makers like Microtek tried driver fudges- but they did not work. It has to be a NTFS scanner for NTFS commands.

This is a funny problem. Try & locate SCanwizard 5 files and delete them. Complete the registry deletion as suggested. Run scandisk. Install and uninstall Scanwizard 5.

I installed my scanner on windows vista business. It will not work . It worked on Windows XP service pack 3. Is there a driver I can download for Windows vista business? I need this scanner to work...


Unfortunately the last driver that Microtek released for this device was for Windows XP. I'm posting the link to Microtek's support page for this device below. You may be able to contact Microtek directly (contact info is on the support page) for a possible workaround.

The light in my scanner ( microtek scan maker 9800xl ) first began to emit a burning scent and then it just went out. Where can I get a new light for it? How is it installed?


Hi Debmar22,

I don't think you'll be able to do it yourself. better take it to a nearby authorized service center and they'll do it for you. As for the burning smell, it looks like a short circuit withing the scanner (not necessarily a blown scanner light). One can't say at this point until it is opened up and checked thoroughly.

Best of luck.

I have windows vista home premium and an old Microtek scanner than will not install the scan wizard with error message: USB scanner does not support windows NT now. Please help as everything else...


I don't think you have a chance, but you could try Compatability Mode & Installing as Administrator. To configure the compatibility mode for an application, just locate the installation directory and right click on the .exe, selecting Properties from the menu. Select the Compatibility tab: Set it for "XP SP2"

My s400 works with Vista but not Windows 7, I


It will work with win 7 but it is complicated.

Download driver from the Microtek website
extract the files to your drive
locate the setup.exe file where you extracted the files
after the driver is installed reboot the pc

Now for the fun part...

Once PC is fully rebooted plug in Scanner ScanMaker s400
Windows looks for drivers in “windows update” and the “preconfigured driver folder”
Windows cannot find a driver.
Close “Driver Software Installation” window
Open Device Manager
Device manager shows yellow bang next to “USB scanner” under “Other Devices”
Right click on usb scanner
click “update driver software”,
Click on “Browse my computer for driver software”
Click on “let me pick from list of device drivers on my computer”
Click on “Imaging Devices”
Click Next
Under Manufacture there is no Microtek
Click on “Have Disk”
Click on Browse
Locate ScanWizard 5 V6.63 folder
Locate Disk 1
Locate Vista
Locate X86
There is a list of INF files
Choose first inf file, “Mii_x86_004.inf”
Click Open
Click OK
Now under Manufacture two entries are listed, Microtek and Microtek Driver Team,
On the other side there is a list devices s400 is not listed
There is an entry for 4800 Scanner
Select it and click next
An “update Driver Warning” opens select yes
Window now shows successful driver update.
And the scanner is listed as 4800 scanner
Click close
Close device manager
Open Scan wizard program
Scanner works fine.
The scanner will not work nativly with windows scanning.
