Question about Visioneer OneTouch 8920 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

My Visioneer One Touch 8920 will not scan slides

I use it often for reflective sanning and have been doing so for years. For the first time I just tried to scan a slide and everything seems fine when I preview the slide except that the SCAN button never gets activated.

In the past I had disabled the loading of what I think is the software update checker, and the the driver for the unit buttons in Msconfig (yes, I know.. it's an old W98 machine, but it still runs). This has never been a problem for running the scanner from within the Visioneer software using TWAIN. But even after turning those things back on I still never get the SCAN button activated. I tried the scan button on the unit and it did somthing, but I have no idea where the file went if it created one. It did not go into the SCANSOFT folder.

    I uninstalled both the One-Touch Version 3.0 and PaperPort Version 7.2 that came with the scanner. I then used RegSeeker to clean the registry. It cleaned several entries. I have used RegSeeker to clean the registry often and never had a problem with it. I ran it a few times until it found nothing left to clean. I then reinstalled the scanner software. Now it works.

I have upgraded to Windows 7. Where can I get drivers for Visioneer One Touch 8920 Scanner?


You can't. This is an older model, "end of life" per Visioneer, and they never released drivers for any system later than XP. If the XP drivers don't work, you'll need to replace the scanner with a newer model.

How do I scan slides with the Visioneer 8920?


In the Twain window at the top is a dropdown menu where you can select 35mm slides. That gives you two choices of resolution at 1200 or at 2700 dpi, plus a custom setting option.

The scan motor is straining against somethinmg - so re do the lock/unlock routine and carefully examing the machine and the manual - usually in PDF on the software disk.

I have had this very problem with 2 of these scanners (8920) and finally figured out what happens is that the cheap chinese power supply loses power over time and then finally gives out. Before it fully gives out it doesn't have enough power to scan properly but will still turn the scanner on. Symptoms range from terrible scans with noise to the dreaded "scanner is locked" error. I got a new power supply from radioshack - 12 VDC at 1.5A (1500 MA) and it works like brand new! Make sure the power supply can deliver the full 1.5 A of the original! This is very important.

Get another scanner. Check whether the lock has not been enabled at the bottom of the scanner. This has happened with me as well and a known Visioneer problem.
