Question about Visioneer 9650 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Stuff came loose inside

I bought a great scanner off a seller on ebay who only said that the physical condition looked good but knew nothing else about it. Sold "As Is". When I got it I saw the only problem was that the geared plastic piece that the scan head runs along had come loose from wherever it had been hooked with a spring. Now I'm in search of a manual or picture that shows me how the thing gets hooked back up.

It says it's locked; to click ok when unlocked, But it's not locked. How to reconcile?

The physical lock may be engaged on the scanner.

Turn the scanner upside down and look for a button that slides. There should be a locked padlock symbol to one side and an unlocked padlock to the other side. Make sure the switch is set to the unlocked padlock side.

When you are not using the scanner or if you are moving it, it is a good idea to engage the lock switch so that the mechanism inside is not jolted out of alignment if it is bumped by accident.

I slightly dropped my canoscan lide 110 Now it doesn't not working

Certainly a drop for today's electronics is nothing like the old days. Its good and bad. Good that it was only a slight drop; bad that nothing lights up; good that it wasn't big and bulky and cracked the entire body and frame and it didn't arc and spark like the elder generation of office equipt. generaly I check to see what I can do ( after looking around to see if any one saw me ) and I check to see if the pwr source just got rattled. loose cord batteries not making good connection.If still no go I evaluate if plan B is needed. B is physically getting into it. ie take the bottom or back cover off . some times B is solved quickly with say a loose soldier conn. or the small "coin" battery came ajar. I'm batting nowdays about 29%. In the 60's and 70's I batted about 85% of broken equipt. I'd get into I could fix fairly quickly with a mod or two(jury-rig) or a soldering. As the years roll on parts are added to others and/or no longer mechanical. It cheapens the product but simplifies it immensely. A simple switch is now three diodes and two transistors. When plan B isn't satisfying. it's either put it back together; trash it; or REALLY take it apart~ plan C. Looking for any thing that I can do. generally the last stop for I part it out. This time period to me is important. it helps me slowly accept that some things really are not made to last. ( especially slight boo-boo drops) good luck my friend.~~~SC

Hello alex951,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

I found a great listing for this power supply you require, on eBay!
Of course it is always wise to use "Top Rated" sellers there.

Here you go!

My CanoScan 8400F stopped working. A local computer shop advised that the power adapter was shot. Rather than spend $60+ with Canon, I bought an after-market through EBAY. When it was delivered I...

I'd try contacting the seller FIRST and letting him know the product does not work for the models he advertised and you'd like to return the item for a refund. If that doesn't work, THEN file a claim with your credit card company or Paypal (credit card is preferable if you paid by that rather than paypal funds) and say the item was misrepresented.
Rather than splicing anything and damaging anything, I'd do that first. Then find a seller with high ratings for the same product. Ebay is the way to go rather than paying ridiculous factory prices.See if you can find the original manufacturer's part # (possibly off your broken power adapter), rather than just the scanner model #, and search Ebay for it, but click the "Search within description" box, as many bay sellers only include the actual part # in the auction description, rather than just the title.

The lubricant has become sticky and is acting more like adhesive than lubricant. This is the most common cause of malfunction in the LS-2000 and LS-30 scanners. It's a quite curable condition.

Nikon LS-2000 and LS-30 film scanner service and repair is available. Check seller pjferrante2 on eBay. Scanner performance backed for 12 months. Very reasonable price.

I just bought the unit used off ebay - wont scan

I would contact the seller for that information. Also check the ebay listing to see if the seller offers a DOA( Dead on Arrival) return. It would probably cost you more to repair it than to just buy a new one. The seller should be responsible for providing that information to you or to accept the return on the item.
