The Ballast (inverters) for the lamps are drawing to much current and killing
the main CPU PCB.
Recommend a back to base or on site call. :-

Where is the serial number for the i4200 scanner

The Printer access cover which is right under the output tray - lift this cover to access the feed module release
knob and the optional Enhanced Printer for changing printer positions
and maintenance. The scanner serial number and K number are also
located in this area. ---> All of this is located in the User Manual, FYI.

If you are using windows 7 and it doesn't support your scanner get a program called Vue Scan, it works with nearly all scanners and it will save you buying a new one. it is available quite easily just google it

Depending on the usage of the scanner, you can try cleaning first. Kodak recommends rollers be replaced every 125,000 scans.
1. Open the scanner and use compressed air to gently clean the rollers. If that does not help, use cotton swabs with alcohol to clean off any residue left on the rollers.
2. Replace the rollers. Part numbers can be found here: parts You can order the replacement parts directly from Kodak: 1-800-822-1414 (8AM - 8PM ET)
Happy Scanning, Myridom

My Kodak ESP 3 Won't Scan

Did you install the full software driver for the all-in-one? The drivers are here:

Next try a new USB cable and plugging the unit into a different port. If you use a print server or USB hub, try connecting directly to the computer. Scanners need bi-directional communication with the computer and thus are likely to have issues even if the printer doesn't.

Can the scanning software on the computer initiate the scan? (That is in the full software package. Alternatively Vista came with Paint and File> Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan.)

I hope this helps.

Kodak DS3500 scanner

Are you using a Kofax SCSI card or an normal SCSI controller like Adaptec?
By using a normal SCSI controller, is there an ASPI driver problem after a WIN XP update? After an update check the ASPI dlls in \sytem32. They should be version 4.71 or higher.

Check the SCSI connector pins and the terminator.
If available change the cable.

Scanner check:
Is the green lamp (Ready) on or is the red lamp (Error) on?

- green lamp on:
the internal self test is ok, but the internal SCSI interface may possibly faulty.

- red lamp on:
the internal selftest detect an error.
It's possible that the DC/DC power board, the CPU board or the power supply inside the scanner is defective.
After reassembling the front side camera you will see at the bottom a PCA board with some LEDs whitch indicate by red light the different voltages when power is on. You find the different voltages printed at the PCA close to the LEDs.
In case on or more LEDs don't shine the according DC/DC transformer on the PCA is defective.
Futher you see LEDs at the camera PCAs. They should be on too.

In case the CPU board has an defect you must have an special Kodak activation tool to unlock an new or used CPU board after exchange.
