Question about Microtek SCANMAKER 4850 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Microtek ScanMaker power AC/DC adapter

I have a Microtek ScanMaker scanner which is connected to the computer with a USB .  But it also needs a power adapter.  It says on the back to use only power supplies (AC/DC adapter) listed in the user instructions..  Since I don't have the user instructions or the adapter I'm not sure what kind of adapter I need to get.  On the back it says:  Microtek TYPE - 2400l48U
+12V==1.25A.  Can I use a universal adapter? or do I need to buy an adapter from the Microtek company?

    I have the same problem. Also, there was an error (yellow question mark) in my device manager list on "serial." It that a serial port? What could that mean? I have downloaded all sorts of drivers (though I might have overdone it). Could it be my scanner is toast? (The scanner light want move like it's locked in place; and all I get are these red and blue bars across all the way up.) I believe the scanner is not broken, but I also lost my instructions and i have this orange screw-type thing underneath that I recall locks and unlocks something. I just don't remember. Mary Helen

    I need a power cord for my microtek 4850 scanner

    I need a power cord for my Microtek Scanmaker 4850. I have several different power cords from various items but do not know which one it is. What type of adapter is it?

    the power cord is loose and I've taped it and a few other things to get it to hold and keep the connection.Can this be fixed or is there a work around. I love the scanner?

    Look again and you will see that your +12V==1.25A is NOT equla signs but rather a solid line above and a broken or dashes below, usally tow or three. In your case I would assume it is the symbol with the two dashes below which, at first and quick glance, one would mistake for two equal signs. At any rate, that symbol dtands for DC. AC would be a wavy line. Look at the music band's AC/DC logo and you will see they use these symbols above the AC and belowe the DC.

    If you look again, you will notice that your +12V==1.25 is NOT two equal marks but rather a solid line above and, probably in your case, two dashes or broken line below. It can be either two or three dashes below. Usually this symbol stand for DC. AC would be a wavy line. Look at the music group AC/DC and you will see they use the wavy line above the AC and the solid/dashed line symbol under DC.

You can download: ScanWizard 5 version 6.63 Here: ftp://microtek:microtek@files165.cyberlynk.net/microtek/pcfiles/drv_sw5_v6_63_ad.exe
Extract to folder on desktop. 1. Plug in your Scanner 2. Go to Control Panel (Windows 7 - 64 and 32 bit) 3. Go to Device Manager 4. Go to Imaging devices (or Other devices) 5. Find what windows have installed Right Click 6. Update Driver Software.. 7. Click - Browse my computer for driver software 8. Click - Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer 9. Click - Have Disk 10. Browse to your desktop or position where you extracted 6.63, point to "....drv_sw5_v6_63_ad\Disk1\Vista\AMD64\..." Pick any of INF files I picked first 11. You will see 4800 Scanner and USB 2.0 Scanner, I picked first 4800 then USB 2.0 and both works.
I managed before to do it with simple install but well, it works .. ;)

IN NEED OF A POWER CHORD


Does the unit need an adaptor or just an AC power cord? If it has an input jack similar to other DC input devices that use a 'wall wart' type with a large plug (actually a primitive power supply), you need to determine what voltage and current it needs.

Yes you can still use the scanner. The beauty of todays technology is that there are adapters for everything. You can get a SCSI to USB adapter for just a few dollars at most best buy stores.

Microtek Scanner installation issue


If running XP SP2, then try clicking Start > right click My Computer > properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager button > expand Imaging devices > right click on your Microtek ScanMaker > uninstall > Re boot > and let XP pick up the device and let the found hardware wizard configure it.

I have seen plenty of hardware that when following the devices manufacturer's instructions for install, such problems as you're having occur and XP SP2 usually will cure it, though you may still need the device manufacturer's CD (for the driver) in your optical drive.

This link: http://support.microtek.com/downloads/bymodelname.phtml?viewtype=2&srch_in=ScanMaker+5950&frmsearch.x=10&frmsearch.y=11&frmsearch=Search&frm_rqst=2&axn=1 will allow you to select between the 5950 and 5950 Pro then on the next page you will be able to download the latest XP driver for your Scanmaker among drivers for other Operating Systems also.

I hope this helps, and Good luck.
