Question about Microtek ScanMaker 1000XL PRO Film Scanner (35 mm), Flatbed Scanner
I tried reinstalling the software, but it still won't scan. It's only a few months old. The lamp moves, it's lit, everything works but the image won't show up, even in overview.
First thing to do is un install and reinstall the software. Then consider - what other software could be running the could conflict[A graphics program for example]is to try another software for scanning if available. The other thing to consider is the age of the scanner- if it is from the DOS era-95/8/ME- then it will like as not not run- there is a firmware problem. Scanners have a controller chip - DOS era devices are looking for DOS commands - and they are getting NTFS commands- various makers like Microtek tried driver fudges- but they did not work. It has to be a NTFS scanner for NTFS commands.

When you say -'normal' prescan you do mean you get an image? If this is so I would remove all software. Do a disc clean Reboot the computer Re install the original supplied software-ignore for the time being any down loaded upgrade, Come back tell me what you have

This is a funny problem. Try & locate SCanwizard 5 files and delete them. Complete the registry deletion as suggested. Run scandisk. Install and uninstall Scanwizard 5.

Try checking the ribbon cable going to the scanner head, it may have a bad connection causing an error as it flexes at a certain spot.
