Mustek Scan Express A3 USB

We've had the scanner for a little over 2yrs. It worked ok until recently. All the color pictures scanned are faded and have SEVERAL raindow colored stripes horizontally across the image. Any line artwork scanned appears with gray horizonal stripes. We've tried reinstalling the software and downloading new drivers but no luck. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Got same problem. Beginning to suspect the traveling lamp or associated electronics. Looking out for parts suppliers for elimination trials. Strange, once in a far while it works. Updated drivers again this very day.Suggest you try a good power adapter, and if you are technical, search for loose connections. Will keep you posted if I solve mine, being an electrical engineer, NOT electronics.

Mustek Scan Express A3 USB Scanner


I've had a similar problem with the streaks, lines and color bleeds appearing in the scan. Try uninstalling the all software and drivers for the scanner and reinstall. Worked for me. Have had to do this a couple of times since I've owned the scanner... about three to four years now.

I have a Mustek Scanexpress A3 USB scanner. I''ve installed all software and hook up the machine. When I try to scan using Photoshop of the bundled "Panel" software, the program locks. I'm using XP...


Hi,
It could be something to do with the bundled software having a missing or corrupt TWAIN32 file.. But you can Scan using Windows XP itself.

Scroll down to the Scanning part, and see if that is of any use to you..

Hope this helps

I need a scanner that will scan 10X14 pictures


Hi,
I found some scanners for you listed below but,
You can also scan large pictures in sections, and then use a program like STITCHES. Basically you scan it in quarter sections and then create a working board in your photo program and then you copy and paste each section into that board and line up the edges.
This is what most people do rather than buy a very expensive large format scanner.

Some large companies also have large scanners for maps etc. If you know someone who works for a very large company or one that does surveying etc. They may do this favor for you.
Though copy stores may have the size you need, copywrite issues will be asked about.

Here is the list.

My Mustek A3 Scanner Compltetely Freezes Itself and Photoshop


I'm having the same problem with my Mustek A3 and I didn't have this problem at all until I installed the newest version of McAfee virus protection...ever since I installed that stupid program, every time I go to scan something with the Mustek scanner through Photoshop, now it freezes on me at the initializing scanner screen. I even tried the system restore to reset everything before the McAfee was installed and miraculously the scanner works perfectly again. So whatever McAfee has on that disk is screwing up my scanner which is really irritating. And yeah, I tried downloading the new drivers from the Mustek site before I did the system restore and that didn't help at all either.
