Question about Kodak i40 Path-Through Scanner

2 Answers

Error 5 Can anyone help me by solving a problem with the kodak I40 scanner. Just got it new, but everytime when try to scan some forms, within a few seconds an error appears (E 5). The power on turns into red after a few blinks. Disconnecting the cables and switching it off and on doesn't work. After switching it off and on, the power on turns green again, but no chance to scan any forms at all. Thanks in advance

I can't seem to find a error code 5. What software are you using to scan? Did the error start right after your first? Had the scanner been working?

Kodak i40 Scanner - paper jamming

First clean with a damp cloth, then try Isopropyl Alcohol. Dont use solvents. Check if papers are sticky. Stapled papers are 'sticky' even after removing staples. loosen them if required. Notmally rollers last 200,000 to 250,000 scans

Scanning problem

May be you have selected multipage option. Then all the pages will be part of the same file, you can view them in 'Windows picture & Fax viwer' You need to page down to see the images. Scan only the first page and check the file size. If this file size and the earlier one are different, then it confirms that you have chosen multipage option!

Kodak i40 Front loading scan


Try downloading the latest Firmware for the Kodak i40 Scanner at the following page:

Follow the instructions carefully, and make sure that the scanner and the PC DO NOT turn off while doing the Firmware update. I recomend connecting both to a UPS with a known good battery while doing this upgrade.

This should install the latest features including the one that enables front feed.

Acrobat 8.1

Upgrade to Acobat 9.0 Pro. It seems to work in that can scan pages for a document, HOWEVER, adding/appending to already scaned pages for a document seems to crash 9.0. For example, say I scan in pages 1 - 4. I cannot then scan pages 5 -6 as part of the same document--crashes Acrobat.

I think this finally proves the problem is Acrobat 8.0 and NOT the i40 drivers.
