Question about Umax Astra 610P Flatbed Scanner

Repairable noise and lines?

Our scanner is pretty old, and I am almost positive it is out of warranty. It has gradually been scanning at worse and worse quality (printing dark lines through the image)then finally today it had so many lines you can't even hardly see the text. Also, it is making a loud buzzing type noise. Is this repairable? If so, how? Thank you.

Vertical line in scanned image

This is because of dust sticking to the glass. Clean with isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and dont use solvents. For emergency you can use your after shave but take care only to clean the glass portion!

Mustek Scan Express A3 USB Scanner

I've had a similar problem with the streaks, lines and color bleeds appearing in the scan. Try uninstalling the all software and drivers for the scanner and reinstall. Worked for me. Have had to do this a couple of times since I've owned the scanner... about three to four years now.

Scanner makes knocking noise after starting

That normally means that the imaging mechanism has shifted off of the tracks that it moves on when it scans your document. This is usually something that is covered under warranty if you still have one. If not, you may have to pay to get it repaired or replaced. This is not something that is easily fixed if you aren't familiar with scanner components.

Awful noise

Please try the following to resolve your issue:
1. Unplug the USB cable and the AC adapter from the back of the scanner.
2. Toggle the Transportation lock (the plastic switch at the back of the scanner) back and forth 5 times, ensuring that the lock is all the way in the unlock position.
3. Reconnect the USB cable and the AC adapter cable, and then try to scan.

Scanner not scanning

Your 'transportation locks' may have been engaged. (Check lower-left-hand-corner of the inside the scanner cover and the left-back side) See the manual:
