Question about Epson Perfection V500 Flatbed Scanner
This scanner has done 1000's of slides and negative strips. It now (occasionally) grinds and stops...also randomally scans at a very low size 44kb. Fixable or is it time to buy another?

Check the lock position underneath your lid-located in lower right corner. The lock on the transperancy unit tranportation needs to be unlocked (moved to the right).

Clean the glass surface with Iso propyl alcohol (Industrial grade is enough). Dont use any solvent. Just for immediate usage, you can use your aftershave and clean. Clen with a soft cloth.

The most common problem is that the pulley breaks, you might be able to see it through the glass. looks where the belt goes, and see if the pulley is broken.
also, some people forget to unlock the locking mechanism when the unit gets moved, the locking switch is on the side.
