Question about Epson Perfection V200 Flatbed Scanner
I have a Epson V200 scanner that is quite new. I've scanned lots and lots of negatives etc. with this scanner, but since yesterday everything has a thin light blue line through it. I've cleaned everything I could reach, and checked the scanner-thingie inside the glass for dirt, but can't see anything. How do I fix this?
I had the same problem with My Espon Perfection V500. I called tech support and they had me do the following sequence.
1. Turn off the unit
2. Unplug the lid from the base
3. Replug in the lid.
4. Turn the unit back on
5. Go into the Epson software in Professional mode, Configuration, Other and select Reset All
6. Rescan the picture.
It worked after that. Of course it also lost all my preset sizes in my Custom box and any other settings I had. I suspect the lid plug is what the problem was.
Another word to the wise. To test it I put in a picture that was laying on my desk and rescanned it and was disappointed to see the line in the result. A few minutes later I discovered that this particular line was in the original picture.

I had this problem with a Perfection 4180 PHOTO. I tried the above and the problem remained. Tried a 2nd time, but this time left the unit off for a few minutes to cool and problem solved.
