Question about Umax Mirage II Flatbed Scanner

UMAX Mirage IIse Running on MAC OS

Good Evening I am having an issue with my Mirage IIse with transperancy adapter. My ready light will not stay on steady so the computer does not recognize the scanner. I have had it hooked up to a Blue and white G3 with a third party SCSI card. It is the only device on the SCSI chain. I am running MAC OS 10.4.10. I am using SilverFast Ai and it has been working great for several years. I did take the glass off to get to my power button that gets stuck sometimes to release it. But the power light remains lit while the UTA and READY lights blink on and off in a revolving pattern. Do you have any thoughts on what my issue might be? Thanks in advance,

    I cannot get the Mirage II se to be recognized within the scsi chain. items after and before the Mirage II se work fine and appear on SCSI probe. The UTA abd ready lights will only blink. This problem is happening on a G3 tan tower with OS 9.1.

    I have changed the cables, changed the scsi order, changed the software from Magicscan 4.3 to 4.5 and reinstalled the software into Photoshop 7.

I had the same problem. I turned off the scanner and unplugged the transparency unit from the back of the scanner and restarted and it is working fine now. Hopefully this works for you as well.

All scans with Umax Powerlook III are totally black around the edges with strange color bars where the images should be. This is using Umax Silverfast 6.0 software on a Mac running OS 10.4.11


sounds like the scanner is dead. only way to be sure that its not a software issue is to try that scanner on another machine. if you get the same issue on seperate machines, its a good bet that scanner is toast. Fortunately, you can usually go to the Salvation Army or Good will, and get a used scanner for 15 bucks, all you need is downloaded drivers and appropriate cables.

Could be a SCSI termination issue. Try changing the SCSI address number on the scanner to a different one and make sure the chain is terminated properly. If there are multiple SCSI devices in the chain, disconnect all the others until you are sure the scanner is working then slowly add the other devices to the chain making sure everything works as each device is added. SCSI voodoo!

For Mac OS X, UMAx 3450 does not work


Hi,

After visiting their officail website and calling the customer support it was made clear that UMAX 3450 is not compatible to MAC OSX. Therefore I would suggest not to try third party drivers as the company says its not compatible.

I have this scanner.... I had to take the scanner apart(take the cover off) very simple to do. This is a very simple fix. Obvious fix. You will see when you open it where the switch is. Mine was not making contact. You might be stuck with it in the on position once you fix it.
