Broken Lamp Blinking

Hi I was hoping someone could help me answer this question.  I just recently bought a used scanner and got it shipped.  Thing is when I plugged the scanner in...the scanner warms up and then the green and orange light on the scanner keep blinking.  When I looked it up in the manual, it indicated that it had a broken lamp.  So I bought a new lamp, installed it...but the green and orange light are still blinking.  Any ideas as to what the problem might be?

Re: Broken Lamp Blinking

Try replacing the cable (USB?) Often times cables will fail when one wire inside breaks or has intermittent connection.
I had good luck buying cables at:
Also due to strange wiring at the front most scaners and printers favor USB ports behind the CPU more often than not..

Re: Broken Lamp Blinking

Does the lamp light up while warming up? If not then there is a fault with the lamp driver.

How to print screen? I want to do screen captures

Screen capture and print can be done with a program called Faststone Capture. I have used for years, works great. Also allows you to edit a capture and put in arrows to point things out, very handy when sending someone a photo of a broken item and you want to point out what is broken.

Fujitsu Scanpart 620c Leds error Amber on, Green blinking,red bli

Thank you for contacting Fixya.
You need to check the blinking times of the Paer jam LED. Then check the followings:
1. If the lamp is on, then ADF Switch is malfunctioning. Disble or short the switch.
2. If the lamp is off, then it is Flatbed or ADF Inverter error. Lamp inverter circuit is to be replaced.
5. If the Lamp is still off, then Lamp is to be replaced.
6. If the issue still persists, then you may have to contact the authorized Avision Service personnel for further diagnosis and suggested repair or replacement.
Hope the above information is helpful.
Please revert if you have any doubt.

Scanner lamp its blinking

After disconnecting and later reconnecting the scanner no longer worked. The lamp started flashing 6 times with pause. The scanner was no longer recognised by the computer. I fixed it by disconnecting the usb and current plugs, and reconnecting the current plug while pushing the first en third buttons from the left on the front of the scanner.

Fix scanner dr 7080c

We had the same problem and called a Canon technican to come out.
Open the lid, take the two screws on the left-hand side out, so you can remove the flatbed glass.
You will have to remove one or two metal plates to get the glass out. Be very careful with the glass!
Now you can get to the mirror part. You should be able to put it back into place.
Hopefully this helps!

Cannot scan film and slides

Check the cable that connects to the lid of the scanner. If it is disconnected, you won't get the Film options.

Can't find replacement lamp for Scanmaker 6400XL

JKL Components was able to create a new bulb for me for Microtek 9800 XL with Transparency Adapter. If you have a different model might need to send the bulb so they can see if it needs to be modified. Worked perfectly. Call Larry: 818-896-0019 ext 124. Very nice, and very helpful
