Question about Epson Perfection V500 Flatbed Scanner

Open Question

Trying to fully lower the lid of an Epson Perfection V500 Photo Scanner

I presume there are three angles that the lid can assume: 0-degrees (horizontal), 45-degrees, & 90-degrees (vertical). I can raise the lid from 0-degrees through 45-degrees to 90-degrees. I can then lower the lid back down to 45-degrees, but not down to 0-degrees. Sliding the gray lock/unlock switch, in the lower right corner of the lid, to the unlock position does not seem to make any difference. What am I doing that is incorrect? Thanks.

SOURCE: I have an Epson Perfection V500 Photo scanner

The first item to repair/replace is the power on switch on the scanner. Unless the power goes inside the scanner and it shows some signs of life, nothing can be said/done. I feel it is the power on switch which need replacement. Anything else is later on.

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.

Try shutting down your computer and then unplug from the power source. Wait a minute then plug it back in and turn on the computer.

Accept the driver installation even though it does not pass Windows Logo testing. Just accept it and continue with the installation.
