Question about Microtek ScanMaker X6EL Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Connecting a scanner

The label just says X6, not EL, if that makes a difference. I am trying to set this scanner up with my Dell and Windows XP. I connected it to the printer parallel port as the instructions say, but the computer won't recognize that is it there. After installing the software, the "test connection" says there is no connection. I know it's an old scanner, but I don't want to buy a new one right now. Any suggestions?

Hi, Based on your post/description, I will assume that your scanner then is X6 EPP and that: 1. you have the original CD installer or downloaded the 3 .exe files from http://support.microtek.com/downloads/drv_specific.phtml?cnntn=a&x=21&y=20&slct_os=8&step=2&prod=87&bymdlnme=1&drvgrp=87 2. you followed the instruction in your manual or at http://support.microtek.com/tech_faqs_stp.phtml?request=FAQ-PCDI&point=KB-00003#stepbystep and still "...the "test connection" says there is no connection..." A possible workaround: Power off and reboot, on restart hit del, F2 or whatever it is that will allow you to go to BIOS. In the BIOS setup, look for the "Parallel Port Mode", you might have several choices are ECP, SPP, EPP, ECP + EPP; select EPP, save, exit, reboot. Try your scanner. If this doesn't work, try the ECP + EPP or the others (might as well). If still a no go, double check that you have the right drivers for the right Windows. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Adobe 9.0 Touchup Test Tool Types Wrong Letters


I have not come across this my self, but are you editing from another pc ? as if you are using windows xp with say version 1.0 text, and the file is windows not xp version 3.0 they are not compatible. would need a compatible windows text. text has gone way up from xp with key icons etc so even if you are not using them the file will have the information it it. arabic and other countries key settings as you have said you have tried different key pads and still the same, the software adobe uses is what you are set as.but you could also have different keyboard settings installed into the pc and this can mix match as that is 5 different keyboard layouts. check your keyboard settings and make a default setting to your area. and see if this helps the problem but like i say the systems have change on from windows xp

Missing Windows XP Product Key-Need to Reinstall/Repair XP


I'm assuming you have quite a lot of computer savvy??? You'll need to access that drive and get the original key off it. Try connecting the drive to another pc and see if you can get to the Windows folder. Once there, use Jellybean Keyfinder to navigate to the Windows folder in that drive and take note of the OS key. From there you can reformat and use the existing key.

Driver needed to update my Agfa Snapscan 1212p to use with windows Vista


hi
I from Chile and the solution I write in Español

tienen que descargar el driver de la pagina de agfa http://static.agfa.com/digicam_scanner_drivers/

luego renombrarlo cambiando la extensión exe a zip y descomprimirlo en alguna carpeta,
colocan instalar manualmente y dan la dirección de la carpeta donde descomprimieron el archivo,
win da una alerta que el driver no esta firmado, proceden y con esto queda el driver instalado sin incompatibilidad, pueden revisar el “administrador de dispositivos”.
Para scanear, sobre el icono del scanwise, colocan propiedades (boton derecho del mouse) y en compatibilidad colocan con win95

no olviden instalar el driver para que se instale el scanwise
suerte y saludos
