Question about Epson Perfection V500 Flatbed Scanner
Sounds like an internal part is heating up and shorting out- I know this will sound crazy, but put scanner in fridge or outside if you have cold nights, and see if it stays running longer before quitting.

Possible driver issue. You have to reload the twain driver.
To uninstall the twain driver, please follow the ff instructions:

Empty the trash and restart your mac.

Unplug the power supply from the power port on the scanner then plug it back in after a few seconds and power-up if it isn't already on. This happens to me a lot and this works every time. Frustrating though.

I have had the sam problem on 2 of the same scanners. Open the scanner cover and slide the transparency unit transportation lock to the unlocked position. Then close the scanner cover.Power it on and there you go.Somehow this little switch can get moved and there is the grinding noise and not working.
