Well, some hardware can be defective. you should not have to hooked your scanner up, it should be already done. so i would take it back and just get a new one.

Do you have the manual? The scanner may need to be calibrated first. Use the software package it came with to do this OR You can download it here: Ray

Hello am using sharp ar165 m copier machine .and am installing my pc also but scaner is not working please help me.

How are you doing? In order for scanner to work in all multi-functional printers, you must install all functions. While installing printer Sharp Ar165m, it will ask you if you need to install scanner and you must select that box otherwise it will install printer alone. Also there is an option where you are to configure the button keys on scanner function, please configure the buttons while installing. This will allow you to press scanner key on the copier to start scanning without necessarily selecting from the computer otherwise --- will appear and nothing happens. So insert the software CD and remember to select scanning option.

Compaq A3000 Drivers won't install in Windows XP Home

Ths looks like a not properly removed software. What you can do is to remove the software manually by removing all the files and registry keys. But do this at your own risk. I suggest that you do a backup of your computer first
