Light stays on all the time

I have had problems with the scanner light staying on sometimes. I downloaded/installed the latest driver and not the light stays on all the time. Is this a problem with because of Vista or is it the scanner software? I have to unplug the scanner power when I am not using it.

    Thanks, this might be a fix except I haven't a clue how to open the twain driver. I have searched through the help screens in Vista and looked at the device manger but no where can I find any place to open it.

    Well I'll be darned. I spoke too soon. I found the driver through Photoshop. All the years I've used a scanner and I didn't understand this simple thing. Thanks spammster, you taught me a lot with your answer. -Ron

Open the twain driver,

go to preferences and set the timer for the light shutoff.

it is probably set to something high.

remember though: when the light goes off, the lamp needs to heat up again

use a scanner to confirm the cause of light stayed on. Sometimes the reason is under the seat of driver or front passenger as they are moved either forward or backward and one slight reason is the connector under the seat is not well connected -moved- and have not a good contact and light comes on.

The copy light won't stay to copy

That is often an un-fixable problem. However, sometimes a fully charged fresh set of batteries will handle. (Use high-quality rechargables, not disposable alkalines.) Also try power cycling the unit several times.
